Bulkowski's Trades

 

This page lists links to actual trades I made in the stock market. Some turned into big winners and some into losers. That's the way the game is played.

Since it can be difficult to place a trade into one category, be sure to review all of them. Popcorn is available in the lobby to enhance your reading pleasure.

    Buy-and-Hold Trades

    These trades make up my core positions, the ones I hold for long term appreciation, even though they may drop substantially from the buy price. Often they are utility stocks that pay handsome dividends.

  1. Ann Taylor (ANN), high and tight flag entry, sell in May and go away exit, 78% in 9 months.
  2. Assurant (AIZ) trade. Made 69% in 15 months on measured move down. Exit on price target.
  3. CH Energy (CHG), average down on buy side, sell at overhead resistance, +50% in 3 months.
  4. Pinnacle West Capital (PNW), ascending triangle entry, sell for diversification using 38% Fibonacci extension, +21% in 17 months.
  5. Teradyne (TER) trade. Made 194% in 22 months on Eve & Eve double bottom. Exit on price target.

    Position Trades

    These are position trades, which are longer term trades held until the trend changes.

  7. Coldwater Creek (CWTR), congestion breakout on entry, hit stop on exit, 83% in 7 weeks.
  8. CNO 2.0. Fibonacci retrace on entry, inverted dead-cat bounce on exit. I made 90% in 2 months.
  9. Encore Wire (WIRE), rounded bottom on entry, inverted dead-cat bounce on exit, +24% in 2 months.
  10. Frontier Oil (FTO) trade. Made 64% in 3 months.
  11. hhgregg (HGG), symmetrical triangle on entry, 2B on exit, 13% in 3 months.
  12. Hudson Highland Group (HHGP), head-and-shoulders on entry, hit stop on exit, +55% in 3 months.

  18. Top

    Swing Trades

    These are swing trades, which are shorter-term trades often held until the swing ends. Since I don't consider myself to be a swing trader, these are trades meant to last longer but I decided to sell early.

  19. Texas Instruments (TXN) swing trade. Made 5-7% in 5 months.
  20. Cache (CACH), support zone on entry, descending triangle on exit, -7% in 1 day.
  21. Charlotte Russe (CHIC), ugly double bottom on entry, trend change on exit, +9% in 7 days.

  26. Monsanto (MON), ugly double bottom on entry, hit stop on exit, +15%, +19% in 63-73 days.
  27. MSCI Australia Index Fund (EWA), head-and-shoulders bottom on entry, overhead resistance on exit, +5% in 28 days.
  28. MSCI South Africa Index Fund (EZA), ascending triangle on entry, 2B top on exit, +6% in 43 days.

  31. YRC Worldwide (YRCW), flat base on entry, an inverted dead-cat bounce on exit, +34% in 1 day.
