'MAP SYNTAX', is a 'Performance Driven' Discretionary (vs. Black Box) proprietary research effort that focuses on finding the
best stocks the market has to offer. Using multiple time frames, 'MAP SYNTAX' is designed to identify the best candidates for
both long term price momentum investing and short term price 'thrusts' for swing trading. Optimize the 'Sweet Spot'.
All charts are strictly for educational purposes only. No investment decisions should be made based on the analysis here.
Momentum investing can lead to large losses. Very important to have a sound money management strategy.

THRU earnings is always a
LOTTO. Unless you like to gamble, it is best to take risk
OFF before the market close the day
of earnings. However, PRE-E MARK-UP and POST-E DRIFT can be predictable and when risk can effectively be managed.
Stocks with a previous earnings event that was WELL RECEIVED (SUCCESSFUL LOTTO) tend to have lucrative PRE-E MARK-UP's.
The chart above with annotations highlights these points. RULES OF ENGAGEMENT.
Coach Powers ROUTINE.....
Step 1: Scan the markets for ATHLETES (highly qualified MOMENTUM stocks) to add to your team. [Proprietary Scans] [Discovery Keys].
Step 2: From your team of highly qualified ATHLETES cherry pick the BEST and initiate risk
............. Buy, Add-On, Hold, Subtract-From, Sell - using RULES OF ENGAGEMENT [Take Action Keys].
Step 3: Purge ATHLETES that no longer meet criteria for MOMENTUM.
Step 4: Repeat.

I mean ruthlessly, where nothing stops you from doing the things you can control.' ~ Graham Betchart
8th reverse split was effective July 17th, 2017. The split ratio was 4:1.
'Lacking major volatility spikes the 2X leveraged short term volatility ETFs like ProShares UVXY (and VelocityShares TVIX) have historically
reverse split about every 9 months to keep their products in a reasonable trading range. Lacking market panics they tend to be ravaged by
CONTANGO at rates of b/w 70% - 90% per year. Monthly decay rates run in the 10 to 25% range.'
Not all brokers allow for short selling of ETFs. Interactive Brokers however does take short sales on most
ETFs (Equal Weighted and 2x, 3x Levered). Deep in the $ puts can be used as an alternative to a short sale.
Weather your a BULL or BEAR on the macro, it doesnt matter,
VOLATILITY ETF/Ns will
COLLAPSE again allowing a speculator to
PROCURE some very lucrative profits. Despite the large degree of precedence for lower prices, you still need to exercise
MONEY MANAGEMENT should you take risk shorting volatility. Follow RULES OF ENGAGEMENT.
MONEY MGMT = Position Size, Timing the Entry, Cutting Losses & Booking Gains INTELLIGENTLY (Rules of Engagement)
PROCURE // verb //: to obtain or get by care, effort, or the use of special means.
In case the
QUARTERLY charts of UVXY (2 charts above) do not get your attention, the
Finding instruments with this type of track record (performance, consistency and reliability) long or short, doesnt come around often..
I understand shorting is something most speculators would choose to avoid all together, but shorting UVXY is just too
lucrative to pass up. Stop fighting it and get on board. UVXY is designed to depreciate over time (the charts above prove it) and is
Wall Street's gift to those who will INTELLIGENTLY short it.
We would never endorse just shorting UVXY without a RISK MANAGEMENT protocol. You do have to contend with the
threat of violent outsized price spikes; be short through one of those with the wrong position size and its LIGHTS OUT
for you. Fortunately, there is a way to deal with the price spike risk and make money on the short side with a high degree of
safety. To do that and get the effect of COMPOUNDING returns on a short, there are special RULES OF ENGAGEMENT to be employed.
Still not convinced? Then I am certain our proprietary UVXY Quant Study would convince you. And if that doesn't, then
I concede, shorting may not be for you. Press on.
