Current ADX Portfolio

Jaso was added yesterday morning at 7.20 - 500 shares. Current ADX as stands.








I am going to look for a hedge using the indicator in opposite. We will find one with the - DMI popping with ADX in momentum. Start protecting January gains.

ADX Portfolio Strategy - New Buy Signal

The ADX portfolio is up almost 9% for the month of January so far - the portfolio triggered 2 sell signals last week.  There is no need to rush when investing - take your time, another opportunity will present itself and so it did.

JASO - JA Solar Holdings





I have traded and blogged about JASO in the Spring of 10 post JASO the Bull  It is breaking out of a triangle and with the ADX showing upward momentum with the + DMI popping in the last jump here in January.  Overall, Im a bull on solar and solar stocks.  We will add some to the portfolio on the open, unless its bid up aggressively - then we will wait intraday, or next day to pull the trigger.

Current ADX Porfolio



Good Trading!!

ADX Portfolio Update

ADX portfolio triggers 2 sell signals.  





1. BEAT has been trading with the ADX below 20 for 6 days - Sell. 
2. CPF gives sell signal based on a new criteria I believe is valuable to the system.  


Exit
  1. After the ADX closes with a 35, you sell the position on the 5th day it closes at 35 consecutively. (If it closes above for 3 days, then dips below for 2, and back up for 2 more up days, you now have to wait 3 more days for the signal to confirm)
  2. A 40% gain closes out the position.
  3. Stock losses 15% closes out position.
  4. DI - crosses above 20 you sell after 5th consecutive day.
  5. ADX indicator moves below 20 for a period of 5 days.
  6. New Rule(If the ADX hits 40 with the - DMI under 5, it constitutes a sell)












So far the system has generated a near 7% return for the year not included unrealized losses/gains.We have $5341.51 cash.  We will look for new opportunities in the coming days.
