Hot news is spreading around the markets this week
We had CPI numbers come in slightly under economists’ expectations…
Yesterday the Fed announced a 50-point rate hike and the markets fell off a cliff before rebounding…
And in the middle of all of that, another big story dropped that might interest penny stock traders more than those macro headlines…
But while this news is interesting, it’s not the first of its kind in penny stocks.
Promotions run rampant. Sometimes pumpers get caught — sometimes they don’t…
So if you want to trade penny stocks — pumps and manipulation are things you have to get used to. And you have to know how to trade these pumps, not just blindly follow them like all the chat sheep that got murdered.
It’s good to see a bit of justice come for those who got taken advantage of. But the better way to stick it to the man is to invest in yourself and your education.
In the SteadyTrade Team, we traded some of these FinTwit pumps — but we didn’t believe the hype…
Learn from these to become a self-sufficient trader…
The SEC Takes Down Pump and Dump Ring
The problem with any pumper is they alert followers to a stock, but they never give them any details about their entries, exits, stop losses, or even trade plan or pattern.
They call out a ticker and followers buy it. That’s it.
That’s why a lot of people get caught in the inevitable crash. They have no idea what they’re doing…
But manipulators can be creative with their tactics — read the court documents that go into detail about the pumpers’ schemes here.
The best way to avoid those losses is to learn how to trade for yourself…
In mid to late 2021 we traded DatChat, Inc. (NASDAQ: DATS) a ton. This was a pump that went from $4 to over $18 over a few months.
You can see on the chart that for the five biggest days of its run-up, it had a red-to-green move every single day…
In the SteadyTrade Team, we trade patterns — then we move on when a stock is dead.
Now DATS is trading at 41 cents. Could you imagine holding a stock that long without cutting a loss?
But before DATS there was Camber Energy, Inc. (NYSE: CEI). This massive pump even impressed me…
This stock squeezed from roughly 50 cents to almost $5.
This one had a lot of gap-ups, so the best trades were the multi-day breakouts and breaks above the previous day’s high.
Another one of his pumps that tanked was ContextLogic Inc. (NASDAQ: WISH). There are probably still chat sheep holding and waiting for it to go to $20 as he said. That’s when the stock was around $8 to $15 dollars. Now it’s at 63 cents.
These are the types of dangers that are out there for traders who don’t trade with a process, plan, risk level, and rules.
All things I teach in the SteadyTrade Team.
Sadly the potential for easy money appeals to too many people. So they follow others and end up losing big in the end.
Meanwhile, if you put in a little bit of work, you can learn to trade repeating penny stock patterns and not rely on anyone else.
After all, that’s the reason people want to get rid of their 9-5 jobs, right?
They don’t want a boss or anyone telling them what to do. But chat sheep still rely on someone to feed them picks. And once their leader is gone, they have no idea how to make their own money in the markets.
Don’t be a sheep. Learn how to trade the markets and move swiftly in and out of trades in the SteadyTrade Team.
Have a great day everyone. See you back here tomorrow.
