This was the most profitable day of the year and in the program. Our last equity peak was on May 5, 2022. We were in a 10k drawdown in the 200K portfolio since that last equity peak as we came into today's trade. We made a new equity peak by 11k with 21k in trading profits.
Many times, when markets move up this much, it typically start with a big gap up. We anticipated this move higher as we discussed this in our video yesterday - a slow stealth bullish trend, turning into a momentum based trend. The key to today's profits is based on the fact that the market started near yesterday's close instead of gapping up.
I thought the potential was there for another 200 Nasdaq points but the afternoon turned into sideways choppy market conditions. We still captured the bulk of the profits.
It was interesting to see stocks move higher in the midst of a strong move higher in energy prices. I anticipated the move in Crude Oil might weigh on the market but the bulls were out in full force today to drive prices higher and hold most of the gains into the close. We joined them on this move and are flat at the end of the day.
In retrospect, the move higher in energy prices may have weighed on the markets. I believe the Nasdaq may have moved another 200 points higher if Crude Oil and Natural Gas were down on the day.
One trading day left this week and Monday is a holiday as we celebrate Memorial Day.
