Do More With A Platform Specifically Built For A Trading System
We discovered a powerful trading edge many years ago that worked beautifully. That’s all we wanted to trade. No one was collecting the data we needed to find these stocks, so we built our own search engine within Option Stalker Pro. Its Custom Search matrix is incredibly easy to use and you won’t find these search variables anywhere else. Continue reading to learn how to use it to trade!
Nail The Market
If you get the market right, your odds of success increase dramatically. Our market opinion and our confidence in it drive all of our trading decisions. We trade S&P 500 futures, but we primarily trade stocks with relative strength because of the edge. Here’s how our members use Pro to stay on the right side of the action.
Get Your Bearings
Each morning before the open we post our market forecast in Option Stalker Pro. This is your road map! We discuss the fundamental and technical factors that are having the greatest market impact. Our swing section provides our longer term market bias and our confidence in it. This forecast should drive your swing trading decisions. The day trading section puts the overnight move into context. We describe the likely trading scenarios and we highlight the most promising ones. This will help you plan your trading day. View sample report
The 1OP Indicator
The 1OP indicator was developed to day trade the S&P 500, but it has many uses. When the trigger line crosses down after a big spike, it signals a potential market drop. When the trigger line crosses up after a deep trough, we can expect a market bounce. When we have price confirmation (trendline breach, horizontal breakout or a reversal pattern) we trade S&P 500 futures. 1OP works on longer time frames and it works for stocks. It is predictive, not reactive. Learn more about the 1OP indicator and how to use it to trade S&P 500 futures.
Timing with 1OP
When 1OP has a cross, a new cycle begins. The magnitude and the duration of the cycle help us gauge market strength. These cycles also help us determine when we should enter a stock trade and when we should exit. Members keep a 5-minute chart of the SPY up at all times so that the 1OP indicator is always in view. When 1OP spikes we take gains on our long stock positions. When it crosses down, wait for the bearish cycle to run before buying a stock. The market will typically retrace during the bearish cycle and that will allow us to gauge the stock’s relative strength. If the stock remains strong, we will buy it on the next 1OP bullish cross for the SPY. Now we have a strong stock and a market tailwind to fuel the move.
Trading 1OP Signals
1OP trade signals for the SPY that agree across longer time frames (D1, H2, H1) are very reliable. If these signals also agree with our market forecast, swing traders can start searching for stocks. Remember, the market is the biggest piece of the trading puzzle and it is critical to get it right. Day traders can look for 1OP confirmation across shorter time frames (5-minutes, 15-minutes and 30 minutes). If we have buy signals across all of those time frames, you should focus on bullish stock searches for day trading. Once you have your market bias, it’s time to find the best stocks.
Trade Relative Strength & Weakness
Our market signals and our market forecast are reliable, but not infallible. Instead of trading the S&P 500 we use that market bias and we dramatically increase our odds of success by trading stocks with relative strength and weakness.
This is the “edge” that we reference throughout our website and it is how we can identify institutional order flow. In a sentence, when the market goes down and the stock goes up, it has relative strength. You can learn all about it in The Edge section of our website. When stocks with relative strength also have other desirable traits our probability of success increases even more. Here are a few examples.
When the 1OP indicator for a stock and the 1OSI indicator (relative strength) for a stock agree, a trade signal is generated. These trade signals can be seen on the charts across all time frames. A green arrow represents a buy, a red arrow represents a short and a blue arrow represents an exit. When a stock has buy signals across multiple time frames (H1, H2 and D1) the signal is strong.
A stock that has relative strength is even more attractive when it also has a technical breakout. In Option Stalker Pro you can search for compression breakouts across any time frame. There are trendline breakouts that you can search for across any time frame. Swing traders might search for a stock that has relative strength and a breakout above a downward sloping trendline on a D1 basis. A day trader might use a similar approach, but use a breakout above a downward sloping M15 trendline. As you can see, the combinations are endless. In the next section we will look at some of our favorite searches and when to use them.
Option Stalker Pro Scanner
Option Stalker Pro includes pre-configured searches for swing traders and day traders. These stocks have many excellent qualities and we highlighted a few of our favorite bullish searches in this section. When members buy these stocks during a bullish SPY cycle, the odds are in their favor.
Swing Traders: PopBull
This is our favorite swing search and we check it at the start of trading each day. It looks for stocks that are breaking out of a recent D1 compression and horizontal resistance on heavy volume. Since the stock has been compressing we are catching it early in the move and these breakouts tend to be sustained. The Pop+Bull search displays stocks that were on PopBull the previous day. This search gives us a second chance to buy these breakouts.
Swing Traders: Strong After Earnings
Have you ever watched the initial earnings reaction and then forgotten about the stock? A few weeks later you notice how strong it is and you wish you had kept it on your radar. This search looks for stocks that reported in the last two weeks and that gapped higher on the news. The stock is still holding those gains and moving higher on relative strength. This search is a great way to catch those movers.
Day Traders: Heavy Buying
This is one of our favorite searches right on the opening bell. It looks for stocks with extremely high volume, relative strength and a breakout above the prior day’s high. If the stock is also breaking through technical resistance and it has stacked green candles we jump on it.
Day Traders: Red Hot/Bull Run
These are momentum searches. It takes a while for that strength to build so we suggest using them an hour into the trading session. Each search uses different variables to find momentum. RedHot is very selective. You won’t see many stocks on this search, but they will be excellent. BullRun will typically have more results, but not an overwhelming number. When members buy these stocks during bullish SPY cycles the odds of success are very high. There are many other great pre-configured searches, but let’s show you how to create your own.
Build Your Custom Search
In minutes you can create your own powerful searches with our Custom Search matrix. There is no coding and you won’t find these variables anywhere else. Start by casting a wide net and see what you catch. Then start adding other variables like heavy volume and liquid options. Use the same variable across multiple time frames. A stock with relative strength on a five minute basis is not as good as a stock that has relative strength across all time frames. The more checkboxes you mark, the higher your odds of success. Let’s create some searches.
Bull Put Spread Search
For swing trading searches we suggest using H1, H2 and D1 time frames for the search variables. Let’s say that you are looking to sell out of the money bullish put spreads on a strong stock. Let’s mark the boxes for relative strength for H1, H2 and D1. Then let’s also mark the box for Trendline 60 bullish D1. We always want the spreads to expire before an earnings announcement so let’s use the Earnings Date (Projected) filter and set it past the options expiration date. Let’s also mark Liquid Options and set it to 0-15. You can also add > 200-Day MA. Click Scan and double click on the symbols to look at the charts. These are going to be excellent candidates.
Call Debit Spread Search
If the market momentum is strong you might be looking for a short-term, at the money, call debit spread to buy. You need a stock that has excellent momentum and heavy volume. You would use ADX bullish across H1 and H2 to find that momentum. You would also mark Trade Signal bullish across those same time frames. Next you will add Heavy Volume Today, Option Liquidity > 0 and Weekly Options. These stocks will be strong and you can add move variables to reduce the list and increase your odds of success.
Option Day Trade
Let’s say that it is Friday and you want to buy a call option that expires in an hour. We call these lottery trades. You need a stock that is incredibly strong and that has a very good chance of marching higher right into the close. We can use ADX, but we are going to look for a stock that is near its high of the day. Select Range% 90/10 bullish and use H4. This means that the stock is in the upper 10% of its four hour range. Also add heavy volume, Liquid Options, > Prior Day High and Relative Strength across multiple time frames. If you have many results, look for Heavy Volume M15. That means there has been a volume spike in the last 15 minutes. These are going to be some very strong stocks and we do these trades Friday in the chat room. By the way, we can search for volume spikes in the last 5 minutes (or any time frame) for any stock.
Stock Day Trade
Let’s say that you are looking for a strong stock to day trade during a market pullback. As the market drops, the stock treads water and it compresses. That is a sign of relative strength and we are going to select Compression (In) M5. We will also add Heavy Volume Today, > Prior Day’s High and Buy Signal M5, M15 and M30. As you look at the stocks, identify the compression on the chart and drop an alert line at the highest price during the compression. When the stock breaks out, you will get a pop-up alert in Option Stalker Pro.
