The Warlock – Kenny Glick – here.
Don’t mind me, just another day of knocking VWAP trades out of the park in Warlock’s World.
And this is coming on the heels of one of the single best trading days that I’ve ever had.
Even though recent sentiment has all been to the downside, the market was RIPPING higher on Thursday.
Coming into the trading session, there were a few stocks that were gapped up on earnings.
Usually that means I’m looking to play the fade…which is going short on stocks that I think will move to the downside.
But then a funny thing happened…
EVERYTHING RIPPED HIGHER.
But just because I was looking for VWAP trades to the downside doesn’t mean I was going to fight the market.
That’s the beautiful thinking about what we do in Warlock’s World– we don’t fight the market. We ride the wave, make money, and leave the casino.
But I still want to talk to you about what it means to go short and how to do so.
But first, it’s almost time to tune in for my FREE DAILY PREVIEW of my Warlock’s World premium trading room.
So get in the room at 9:15 a.m. ET RIGHT HERE every day to find out HOW I8 plan to trade the stocks from my watchlist above.
WHAT IS SHORTING?
You may have heard the term “shorting” and wondered what the heck that means.
Most traders buy a stock at a certain price, then hope it goes higher so they can sell it to someone else and pocket the difference, right>
Shorting is the other side of the coin.
A short seller is hoping the stock goes LOWER, not higher, and they can make money on the way down – but not without facing some steep risk.
Here’s how the mechanics work, in a nutshell:
However, unlike simply buying shares outright, where your risk is limited to whatever you paid, selling a stock short is extremely risky and not for the faint of heart, which is why you need special clearance from your broker.
That’s because you’re on the hook to return those borrowed shares, no matter the price.
So if you short a stock, and the trade goes against you – the share price starts to rise – you’d either have to hold and pray the price drops again, or swallow your losses and buy them back for more than what you sold.
And holding and praying just isn’t something that we do in Warlock’s World.
So let’s say that you can’t short shares of stock.
Either you don’t have permission from your broker or you have a small account.
It’s still possible to bet on a downside move of the stock using options.
One of the main downsides of only being able to trade options is that you can’t do it in premarket.
But at least it allows you to get on the short side of things.
If my explanation of shorting was a little hard to wrap your head around, CLICK HERE – or on the video below – to see how I explain shorting with my friend Spock.
Of course the best way to fully grasp how to profit on the downside using VWAP is by trading with me every day in Warlock’s World.
Because while the market was screaming downward, my members and I were STILL making money.
If you sat and watched your portfolio or investments bleed out and were worried…then you need to learn how to trade VWAP with me in Warlock’s World.
That’s all for now, VWAPians!
