    If you guys are not trading TNA you are missing easy $$$

    I started trading this a little over $39 nad let you guys know what was working for me and that was when it was trading at $50. It's now 64+ and headed for the 70+ area. Might even get there before the end of the month.. GLTA

    • How do you trade it? What do you use for entry and exit? What do you use to hedge or protect? Options? I have always wanted to but wanted to use a short strategy like shorting tza rather than hold a decaying long in tna. I duno but any thoughts are greatly appreciated and congrats on having a good year thats awsome!

      • Ryan,

        For shorting: Look at the historicals of TNA when the PPS reaches 80%-90% (I like 85%)overbought and the SMA is moving down AND there is a crossover of %K over %D on Stochastics. Set your slow Stochastics to a 14 minute Period and Smooth it to 7 minutes. Set Fast @ %K(14), %D(14/18)

        Shorting: You are IN @ the crossover of BOTH slow and fast have to wait for slow). You are OUT @ reverse crossover.

        Reverse the above for going long. You are doing this on live streaming minute chart. Don't need IWM.

        Still experimenting ...your thoughts....

    • I have to admit you did tell us all about this awhile ago, but when you originally presented it you were trading it day by day and I could work out how you were getting your buy and sell signals. Now, it looks like you just rode the Russell 2000 on a nice bull run. So, very nice call. When I saw this I almost jumped on some IWM calls, but I want to see how next year opens up and I want to get through my MREIT and MLP calls before jumping to the general market, but from what I am hearing the Russell 2000 usually performs well when the economy starts to turn. So, I might just be there with you soon enough. Meanwhile, I keep trading my MREIT and MLP's quarter to quarter and it is working pretty well for me right now. However, you have made me very aware of this opportunity.
