Top Penny Stocks to Trade Today: Getting Started

In the stock market, there are only three things you need to know to be successful:
1. Uptrends and how to trade them
2. Downtrends and how to trade them
3. Changes in trends and how to trade them

That’s it. Within each of these three categories, there are specific chart patterns that we
key in on. Those chart patterns are the backbone of our style and our system that we
use to alert our subscribers to as they present themselves on both the long side and
short side of the markets.

Each week and everyday for that matter our All About Trends System is scanning
stocks that fall into one of the three categories above. As we find these names they go
into our weekly hit list. It’s that list that we work off of. When a name on our list triggers
an entry, an email alert goes out to all our paying subscribers alerting them to that
particular issue.

What do the Most Important Penny Stock Patterns Look Like?

Penny Stock Uptrends

In uptrends, by far the pattern that has delivered the most success to us is what we call
pullback off highs or POH. Here we have a stock in a clearly defined uptrend (usually
above its 50-day moving average).

As you can clearly see this issue is locked in an uptrend. However within that uptrend
you can also mini downtrends. Those mini downtrends are the pullbacks off highs
(POH) we look for. When we find these, we alert you to it. Then when the stock
emerges from the pink pullback off highs line, that triggers a trade to the long side and
we will send out an alert informing you that this stock is triggering a trade.

Penny Stock Downtrends

In downtrending markets, it’s all about shorting stocks that are in clearly defined
downtrends. To be successful in today’s market, you have to know how to both buy
stocks long and go short on stocks. In fact, knowing how to go short is extremely critical
to securing significant short-term gains.

Why is that? Because generally stocks fall three times as hard as when their price is
rising. When institutional investors decide its time to get out, the price is going to fall and
it’s going to fall hard and fast.

Just like we look for pullbacks off highs in uptrends (mini-downtrends), we look for
pullbacks off lows (mini-uptrends) in downtrends. So we are now looking for stocks that
have pullbacked off their lows and when they break that pink pullback off lows line, we
will initiate a short position.

Changes In Penny Stock Trends

This is one of the most important parts of the All About Trends style. After all, if you are
long you need to know when to get out. Eventually all uptrends change trends. And if
you are short you need to know when to get out. Eventually all downtrends change
trends.

The most successful change in trend pattern we’ve found is when a stock forms a
double top and then falls below its upward trend line. The longer the upward trend line
and the more extended it is from its 50-day moving average, the better.

After a period of being in a clearly defined uptrend as evidenced by the stock trading
above the Green line, there came a time where the uptrend was changing trend from up
to down. If you were long this issue that trendline break to the downside told you all you
needed to know to get out and lock your gains. If you were looking to sell this issue
short that break of the Green uptrend here too told you all you needed to know in order
to consider taking a position on the short side by selling it short with a protective stop
loss.

Here is an example of just the opposite , that being after a period of being in a clearly
defined downtrend as evidenced by the stock trading below the Blue line there came a
time where the issue was changing trend from down to up. If you were short his issue
that trendline break to the upside told you all you needed to know to get out of the short
side. If you were looking to buy this issue that break of the Blue downtrend told you all
you needed to know in order to consider taking a position on the long side with a
protective stop loss.

With both of the above issues if you look close each of them had a signature early
warning alert pattern commonly referred to as a double top and double bottom. The
“Double Top” and “Double Bottom” pattern can take place over various time frames,
for example, 10-day one minute charts, or 8-year monthly charts. They can show up at
all-time highs (Tops) or at correction lows (Bottoms) In order to give you a better idea as
to what these look like visually, let’s take a look at some.

Penny Stock Double Tops

In the case of DRYS this issue was in a clearly defined uptrend as evidenced by being
above the Green uptrend line and trending higher. However there came a point in time
where this issue started to have trouble maintaining that uptrend and started to put in a
Double Top (Red Lines) Those red lines were your early warning alert system telling
you this issue MAY be about to change trends from up to down.

The above chart is of the same company, but the only differnence with this one is it is of
the continuation variety.

In summary, identifying “change in trend” patterns involves knowing what a Double Top
pattern looks like from a visual standpoint. The Double Top is your early warning alert
system letting you know in advance that a change in trend MAY be about to occur, in
this case from up to down. That is why it’s important to know what the overall trend of
the stock is. It’s why we draw trendlines! They help keep us focused upon trading in the
direction of the overall trend. Its why and how we let the stocks tell us what to do
through the action they exhibit.
