Looks like we’re in for another awesome week of trading this week!
After dropping my ‘To the Moon’ watchlist on Sunday, I got straight into it on Monday morning. And guess what I traded? The top name on the list.
But before I get into the trade recap…
My Nearly 100%+ Moon Jumper Pick
For those of you dedicated enough to attend my webinar, you might remember that my number-one Moon Jumper pick was helium (HNT).
I guess I should say … you’re welcome? From bottom to top, HNT was up almost 100% over the weekend, making for a SICK Moon Jumper pick.
Congrats to anyone who banked on HNT! Now, let’s get into the trade details…
Why I Went Long on RGBP
Regen BioPharma Inc. (OTCPK: RGBP) was at the top of my last ‘To the Moon’ Watchlist for a reason — it’s a textbook OTC breakout.
RGBP surged almost 25% last Friday, and it’s up over 70% in the past five days.
Monday morning, after three days of consolidation in the chart, I thought RGBP could be headed to the moon.
I was looking for a strong move into the $.03s. Here are the main factors I was considering:
- The price action had proven itself in the past. RGBP is a former runner that has shown it can blast off under the right market conditions.
- The chart held up against initial Level 2 selling. There was an ask block trying to sell 500,000 shares, but the chart held steady. To me, that was an early indication of strength.
- I knew the pattern I was looking for. I was hoping to see a dip-and-rip pattern first thing in the morning, and that’s exactly what we got.
Once I saw the dip-and-rip candles play out, I needed the chart to hold green. It did, so I sent some orders to get filled around 32 cents.
The fills were slow. And while I was waiting, I saw some big bids coming in — which only strengthened my conviction in the setup.
I flipped through a few charts, and by the time I got back to RGBP, it had moved up to $0.335.
Trying to add to my winner, I sent a few more bids. Little did I know the entire trade was about to turn on me…
When a Trade Goes South
Unfortunately, my RGBP trade turned into a lesson of cutting losses quickly rather than a story of monster gains.
Around 9:50 a.m. Eastern, RGBP broke a major uptrend I was watching. I didn’t like that one bit.
This is the point in a trade where the importance of risk management really comes into focus.
As soon as I started to see the cracks forming in the price action, I canceled my orders to add more shares.
And just moments after that — a HUGE red candle.
So what did I do? I immediately cut the entire trade for a TINY loss.
I didn’t get attached to the position. I just let it go completely. On to the next one!
When a trade starts feeling shaky, go back to your initial trading plan. And if the chart really starts turning on you, cut your losses immediately.
RGBP is a perfect example. I made sure to cancel all my open orders and start cutting shares as soon as the price action dipped below my cost basis.
Sure, I wish this was a huge winner. But I’m proud of how I managed my risk in this trade. Sometimes that’s just as important as hitting home runs.
Until next time,
