Another episode of Pancakes and Pivots, another facet of the PS60 Theory explained. In this weekend’s episode, I discuss how I have found value trading stocks when nobody else is trading them, utilizing what I like to call “sneaky pivots.”
The majority of traders out there are simply trying to buy low and sell high. They’re waiting for breakouts and breakdowns to make their moves. And hey, there’s nothing inherently wrong with that. However, my approach is a bit different. For me, the real value — the meat and potatoes, if you will — is in between those breakouts and breakdowns.
Think of it this way. If you go to a fancy restaurant and order a $90 Kobe beef burger, do you care about the bun? Of course not. You care about the meat — that’s what you’re paying $90 for. Now apply that analogy to trading. The breakouts and breakdowns are the bun, the honey mustard, etc. Sure, they’re nice — but the real value is in what’s happening in between.
Discovering Sneaky Pivots
I first discovered sneaky pivots a little over 3.5 years ago. I had gone through a rough 3-day stretch of zero profitability, so I was doing some back-testing and looking for answers. And in those hours of searching, I began to notice some interesting trends. I looked at charts with 60-minute candles and saw that the top and bottom wicks stopped in predictable places. From there, I analyzed what was happening between those logical beginning and ending spots and gradually began recognizing what I would later call sneaky pivots.
For those of you who haven’t learned about the PS60 Theory before, it’s predicated on the idea that stocks don’t just stop randomly. Instead, stocks trade from supply to supply and from demand to demand. In this weekend’s video, I explain how to recognize sneaky pivots and leverage them to make consistent profits. You can watch the teaser video below and see how I analyzed a TSLA chart to find value after a big breakdown. Of course, you can learn more about sneaky pivots, the PS60 Theory, and developing a technical process by joining the Access a Trader community.
It comes down to this: 90% of traders are all using the same methods and trading the same stocks. 90% of traders are also losing money. So if you want to maximize your profits, you’ll have to do something different from what everybody else is doing. Nobody outside of the Access a Trader community trades like we do, and that is our edge.
