Happy St. Patrick's Day to everybody! I am confident that MarketClub and the Trade Triangle technology can help you discover that Irish pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Today, I'm going to be following up on the weekend trades that I showed you in last Friday's video. If you go back and watch that video, you may want to fast forward through the first four minutes and forty seconds of the video to the part where I picked out stocks for the "52-Week High On A Friday" strategy.
Out of the four stocks I picked, three of them were excellent candidates and one did not make the cut. I will show you why you should not have taken this "52-Week High On A Friday" trade.
Here are the four stocks that I shared with you last Friday:
NXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ:NXPI)
Freescale Semiconductor, Ltd. (NYSE:FSL)
ULTA Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, Inc. (NASDAQ:ULTA)
Dollar Tree, Inc. (NASDAQ:DLTR)
Do you remember the next step of the "52-Week High On A Friday" strategy? You exit the position immediately on Tuesday on the official opening of the market at 9:30 am EST. Win, lose or draw you are out on Tuesday's opening trade.
As a reminder, here are the trading rules for our "52-Week High On A Friday" strategy.
Rule number 1: On a new 52-week high, when the market closes at or close to its high on a Friday, buy long and go home long for the weekend.
Rule number 2: Exit the long position on the opening the following Tuesday.
Rule number 3: If the market opens sharply lower on Monday, exit the position immediately.
There you have it. These are the only three rules you need to trade the "52-Week High On A Friday" strategy successfully.
May the luck of the Irish be with you and every success using this strategy and the market-proven Trade Triangle technology.

One thought on “The Luck Of The Irish And A Follow-Up To My Weekend Trade”
This is a very noble hypothesis. How does this "system" work over a sample of more than 1 day and over a sample of more than 4 arbitrary stocks?
Here's your first data point, assume one board lot for each stock, $10 round trip commission, 103.27-104.47 + 41.17 - 42.41 + 83.38-81.91 = -.97 x 100 = -$97 before commissions. Add in round trip commissions of $30, brings 3 day loss to -$127 on capital employed of $10,447 + $4,241 + $8,191 = $22,879.
Return on capital at risk = -1/2%
Now apply the same game to SPY. SPY closed at the highs on Friday so it meets the arbitrary criteria. For $22,879 capital at risk, you could have bought $22,879 / 204.58 (friday's close) = 111 shares of SPY. Exit on open yesterday morning at 207.69. One round trip commission of $10.
P/L = $3.11 x 111 - $10 = $335.21
Once again, trying to be smarter than the market is a muppet's game.
