Reflections and Inflections
My first (half) year with LaDucTrading has come to a close and it didn’t go at all like I expected! I quietly launched this business in late Spring with a rickety trading room (since replaced), no newsletter content (now flowing), no marketing budget (still rely on word-of-mouth), and no idea if anyone would value my Macro-to-Micro trading approach (you did – Thank You!).
I am grateful that you have stuck with me while I got my rhythm with the LIVE Trading Room, which allows me to scan and synthesize market-moving events for actionable trading ideas for members. I am grateful for the member feedback that inspired the newly added Trade Alerts service, which allows me to easily communicate my trades via SMS/email with real-time tracking of my portfolio across multiple time-frames. I am grateful for the faith you have placed in me for reading my macro-themed investment newsletter, which provides the backdrop for my Big Market Calls.
Big Market Calls of 2017
Here are the highlights of some of the calls you received from me that provided some of the biggest profit opportunities:
My #1 Best Market Call of 2017
Oil + Gas bottom-fishing, basket-trading, swing longs from Aug 22. Crude is up 50% off the lows and we actually caught THE bottom in XLE – amazing. Here is a snip-it of my September Trade Journal for Members:
My #2 Best Market Call of 2017
Earnings season, Q3, with those low-volatility cheeky plays that produced a once-in-a-lifetime string of luck. And this is just one week’s Trade Journal:
My # 3 Best Market Call of 2017
Retail bottom-fishing, earnings-season Q3 kick-off, swing long Best Value Plays to end of year. (
My #4 Best Market Call of 2017
Hurricane plays – sad theme that worked exceptionally well.
Top Theme for Sept: HURRICANE PLAYS. (Blue Flags are shorts (cruise-lines, regional banks, insurers) to reshort.) pic.twitter.com/xQh2WGivcg
