We’ll skip the fundamentals for now and look at our SWAG signals
For $DIS, Aladdin will be really excited on how things are taking shape, Money Flow Index is already pointing up meaing smart money is flowing in. SMA20 over EMA13, the next cross is a total no-brainer, the last confirmation we are looking at is the PSAR that will soon change position from bearish to bullish. Definitely not for shorting.

If you’re trading very liquid securities, fundamentals doesn’t really matter. If you shorted $TWTR other day you lost a lot of yesterday.
SWAG trading system works the same in the US equities market much better than how it works in the Philippine equities market, if you can make money in PSE using SWAG, US markets is way easier.
Let’s look at Twitter’s SWAG chart:
Currently, it’s SMA20 over EMA13 which is a clear buy signal and yes, if you bought after the gap down because you saw the death cross (EMA13/SMA20) congratulations, the outcome is always a self-fulfilling prophecy. Can you still buy TWTR? Yes, when the market opens and be ready for the gap to be filled and it will be an elementary textbook play. The other indicators that are ready to confirm the cross is the PSAR which is about to change trend and the money flow index pointing towards 75% overbought meaning the smart money is moving in.
Recommendation: BUY

SWAG on Copper $HGM6

After our successful run up with “coffee” $KCN6 we will be going for another futures trade which is “copper” or HGM6 at the Commodities Exchange (COMEX) in New York. Just like any other futures contract HGM6 has its own specifications.

Contract Specifications:HG_,COMEX

Trading Unit: 25,000 pounds
Tick Size: 0.05 cents/lb. = $12.50
Quoted Units: US $ per pound
Initial Margin: $7,763   Maint Margin: $5,750
Contract Months: All 12 months.
First Notice Day: Last business day of month preceding contract month.
Last Trading Day: Third last business day of the month.
Trading Hours: Open outcry trading is conducted from 8:10 A.M. until 1:00 P.M.
Electronic: 3:15 P.M. on Mondays through Thursdays and concluding at 8:00 A.M. the following day.
Sundays, the session begins at 7:00 P.M. All times are New York time.
Daily Limit: $0.20 (20 cents) per pound


Unlike KCN6 or “coffee” , HGM6 has no quality check on the actual nuggets, bars or copper ingots or how it will be settled whether physical or cash. But as swing or position trader in the futures we’re only concerned at the current action of the future contract’s market price, so somehow it’s traded like an equity, only more predictable.

SWAG on Copper


Robots will advise a “sell”, I will go for accumulate as blue line SMA(20) and red line EMA(13) crosses are imminent which will cause to bring the price of copper up with Parabolic SAR confirming the reversal of trend. Suggested price entries from 211.00 – 209.00 setting the stop loss at 205.00

SWAG on Rocket Internet $RKET

Rocket Internet is a German company I know little about:

  1. It’s listed in XETRA (DAX) or the German stock exchange
  2. It operates ZALORA in the Philippines and is one of the top online shopping sites that keeps Henry Sy and the rest of the traditional retailers up at night.
  3. How it operates, with true German characteristic of success: Thoroughness.


Rocket Internet is not an investor, they are builders. How do SWAG fits in? Let’s look at the stock data

COMMON CODE 111314110

As of this writing RKET’s free float is 21.5% of the outstanding shares, $TEL is holding 6.1%, The imminent SWAG signals has spoken.


The SMA(20) and EMA(13) impending cross is on the horizon, we already entered at 20,20EUR and accumulation is in progress. The nice thing about the German market is it operates with clockwork precision.

SWAG on Coffee $KCN6

As we have claimed several times, SWAG works on all markets and that includes commodities. How? Same thing as how SWAG works on Forex, equities and bonds, the Almighty SMA(20) and EMA(13) crosses. Let’s run down how we did it on “coffee”.

From the previous post we talked about “Who Trades Coffee?” well, it’s not just a question, it’s a question with substance as after that post we submitted our market order for KCN6 at 2 x 37,500lbs and in the 5-minute SWAG chart we already gained 0.67% still far away from our target of 20% but that is $567.96 in profits after commission and others



Being the second most traded commodity in the market, there’s no way anyone can hype “coffee”, the old way of controlling price is destroying excess supply might still be in practice today. When you learn how to use SWAG in commodities, there nothing else to do except exploit the power of its core indicators such SMA(20)/EMA(13), Parabolic SAR just how it’s done in other instruments or markets.

Who Trades Coffee?

Next to oil, no, it’s not gold, I’m sorry, but coffee is the second most traded commodity in the market. Originally cultivated in the hills of Ethiopia, coffee has been revered as the beverage of the gods and has been traded in different markets for thousands of years.


Coffee, in the modern market is traded through the futures contract, we’ll be discussing futures contract, of course, in the near future as part of our livestream at Soul Of The Market.

An example of a coffee commodity futures contract.


Coffee Contract Specifications
Ticker Symbol Open Outcry: KC (ICE)
Electronic: EKC (ICE)
Contract Size 37,500 pounds
Deliverable Grades Arabica Coffee: A Notice of Certification is issued based on testing the grade of the beans and by cup testing for flavor. The exchange uses certain coffees to establish the “basis.” Coffees judged superior are at a premium; those judged inferior are discounted.
Contract Months March, May, July, Sept, Dec
Trading Hours Intercontinental Exchange (ICE): Monday-Friday 1:30am-3:15pm EST
Last Trading Day One business day prior to last notice day
Last Notice Day Seven business days prior to the last business day of the delivery month
Price Quote Cents and hundredths of a cent up to two decimal places
Tick Size .05 cent/pound = $18.75 per contract
Daily Price Limit
(Not applicable in electronic markets)

If you try to buy or sell a coffee contract you’ll see something like this


This means that “Coffee” (KC) July (N) 2016 (6) is currently priced at $1.1925/pound because future commodities such as coffee, sugar, orange juice are quoted in cents per pound. In this case a trader $119.25 is equal to $1,192.50 per pound, so how can you afford that? We’ll discuss later on the subject about margins. The value of the commodity contract is always based on the current price of the market multiplied by the actual value of the contract itself. In this instance, the contract size is 37,5000 pounds

$1.1925 x 37,500 = $44,718.75

How can a retail investor from an emerging market like the Philippines can afford that? Without access to capital? This is where margins come in, commodities are always traded in margins and the margin changes based on the market volatility and the current face value of the contract. Looking at the screenshot above, the maintenance margin is at $4,800 but the initial margin that this particular account is already at $5,280. This means the account owner can buy “coffee” without exceeding the margin impact. This is how anyone who understands futures contract takes advantage of the opportunity to trade commodities like “coffee”.

Everything You Hear About Apple Is Bad News And It's Good ($AAPL)

Apple Inc. (AAPL), even the non-traders know this company, is on the losing for more than a week. Has it lost its mojo? I don’t care. No cool products coming in? I don’t care, Apple has always been in its element of the cool anyway.

So what makes Apple’s bad news a good news? Well, part of the SWAGGER’s philosophy which is basically textbook philosophy are; Buy On Bad News, Buy On Fear. Anyone can read anything about AAPL elsewhere but I’m focusing on the what really matters from the SWAG perspective. Pulling off the charts we can see SMA(20) blue line over EMA(13) red line meaning a SWAG cross is inevitable that will trigger a technical buy signal but the actual cross is not the point where you should buy, it should be before the cross. The fear is characterized by the direction of the Money Flow Index which is going below 20% oversold. Forget about what the robo-adviser is telling you, entering beyond 20% oversold is really buying the fear. The Parabolic SAR is still in bearish trend which makes AAPL less attractive to the fearful.


What do you get from buying on bad news? You can buy at the theoretical bottom, you can buy at a better deal, cheaper price and then wait for the SWAG signals to do it’s thing, let the profits run. Sell when happy to the greedy.

But then again, what drives stock prices to go up or down? Supply and demand, no matter how good the company is if the supply and demand for its shares in the market is not attractive then no one’s going to buy it. Let’s look at the stock data.

What the SWAG is telling us is SMA (20) is over EMA (13) with MFI below 20% oversold and Parabolic SAR about to stop and reverse.
