Happy Monday! How was everyone’s weekend? Hopefully you all were able to relax and study. I have some really awesome news that I can’t wait to announce! Right now a project is in the works and I want to get familiar with it before I announce it to you all! Soon I will have a YouTube channel that many of you have been asking me to start and I will be incorporating the surprise into it. Be excited, get ready, and keep following for the announcement to come! I was hoping to announce it today but I need a little bit more time. Don’t worry, I promise the wait IS worth it and you will love it as much as me; this is a MUST HAVE in the trading world whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced!!!!!! 

Anyways, this post I am dedicating to what I understand as Supernovas from all of Tim Sykes lessons that I have been watching; along with, Tim Grittani’s lessons and other students. 

How To Spot Potential Supernovas

(ScreenShot of $SPCE courtesy of StocksToTrade)

The reason why I want to focus on Supernovas is to help my understanding and yours of what the potential indicators are that will aid in the PREPARE-ation (Sykes Sliding Scale from Trader Checklist) process. I highly recommend using StocksToTrade to gain an edge in trading low priced stocks that have better potential for going Supernova. I couldn’t trade without this platform as it was designed by Tim and his team, specifically for what this blog is about to reveal. So, what are some things that are noticeable when looking at this chart?Go ahead and pause, grab a notebook and something to write with, perhaps study the chart and say what you notice aloud. Please make sure to take notes or feel free to refer to this blog as needed. 

*Note charts like these can be discovered on Top % gainers using StocksToTrade!
*Also, it is not recommended to short in hopes for stocks to go to zero. They may eventually but hold and hope is not a strategy and could result in substantial loss. Do not risk any money you are not willing to lose. If you are looking for investment advise, then consult an investment advisor. 

  • I see that there is weak volume for most of this chart until the Supernova is about to form.
  • There is a breakout at the beginning of the Supernova.
  • Always check for potential news catalyst.
  • A first Green Day with volume.
  • Turns into the First Green Day hold overnight pattern after the breakout.
  • So Two opportunities to profit already.
  • A bit of consolidation.
  • Another Breakout with potential Second Green Day.
  • A red day for shorts.
  • And dip buy opportunities.
  • Fading volume

Wow! There are several chances to profit. $SPCE has gone from around $8.00 up to $40.00ish in over a month. I sure wouldn’t risk holding the entire run, but there are several chances to profit. 

Let’s look at another Chart. These charts are all stocks I have been watching and studying for weeks and even months in order to understand the way these patterns that Tim talks about work. I want to know them inside and out and how they are similar and how they vary. The time span, the volume, the breakouts, the spikes, the first green days, the consolidation potential, the panics, the dip buys, and, “The long kiss good-bye,” as Tim Says. All this is taught by Tim in-depth in his Millionaire Challenge, PennyStocking Silver, Timdicators, and  Pennystocking Framework. Always remember: This is a Marathon and not a sprint!

$UOMO is an OTC which can be a bit slower. Most trading platforms have difficulties finding stocks like this as they focus on higher-priced action. Thank you StocksToTrade for being there for me and providing me with the best edge possible! What do you see in this chart?

  • Choppy Volume
  • Unusual candles
  • Very boring until the 2nd Green Day begins on the right side.
  • Unusual volume though as it begins its Supernova journey (welcome to OTCs)
  • 12 days of spiking
  • Two breakout potentials
  • A couple FGD holds
  • Nice red days for shorts (Jack Kellog/Jackaroo, and I believe Kyle Williams both profited on this)
  • Long kiss good-bye/ no bounce
  • Fading volume

As you may be noticing, not all supernovas are the same. But they are similar. In this chart I am mostly watching how the stock is stuck in the odd channel on the left and how it changes on the right as it breaks out. That odd pattern is what spiked my curiosity. I wanted to know if that strange change had any potential indicator that could lead me down a path of potential profit in my future. Sure enough, it seems to be on point. (Now, not every chart you see will be like this one. Every stock has its own potential but many stocks won’t be worth noticing. Remember to perform your own due diligence. This post is letting you know what I notice when I am scouting for Supernovas based on my understanding of Tim’s lessons.)

$HENC is another OTC that I had been watching for a long time. I have tried to buy this stock several times but I didn’t quite understand what I was looking for. To track all my trades you can follow me on under TessaLamping or make sure you are on the web version of this blog to checkout my chart on the right —> Currently, I hold no open positions as I am preparing to live trade this week or the beginning of next IF I find the right setup. I will also be announcing that surprise here soon which will only add success to my trading performance and hopefully yours too. Anyways, what do you notice in this chart? 


  • Not much volume on the left.
  • Basically at a stand still
  • Unusual volume starts to form near the right
  • The first breakout
  • Consolidation period
  • Another breakout
  • Consolidation
  • A couple more breakouts and consolidations 
  • Then the red days come and the shorts take over
  • Fading volume

Next Chart…

(Screenshot of $AVXL, Courtesy of StocksToTrade)

Notice the Magenta colored lines on $AVXL? These are my potential support or resistance lines based on the longer term charts that have shown supernova action many months or years ago. This gives me an idea on how far a stock could run or consolidate… Perhaps even breakout. If the stock hits my line then I start considering a buy or sell depending on the plan I have prepared for myself. For the longest time I would set my lines and study them just to practice since The Complete Penny Stock Course, written by Jamile Alluch and forward written by Tim, suggest I do. Now, what do you see in this chart?


  • Consistent volume on the left with small unusual volume.
  • Starting to gain unusual volume on the right.
  • Resistance around the mid to upper 3s for potential breakout.
  • It hit my first magenta line.
  • Consolidation. 
  • Each Green Day seemed to reach my lines but continued climbing.
  • Several breakout opportunities all with volume 
  • Red day for shorts 
  • Fading volume

These charts are great guides for analyzing stocks. I highly recommend taking a peak at Tim’s PennyStocking Framework to learn the 7 steps he noticed when identifying the Supernova patterns he teaches. This truly comes in handy as I learn to recognize the bones of these charts. 

How about another chart..

(Screenshot of $CUBV, Courtesy of StocksToTrade)

All the chart I have in this blog post are screenshots I took this morning. Look at $CUBV… this is a sub-pennystock. These were a little trickier for me to understand in the beginning as they typically lack a lot of volume to get in and out of quickly; meaning they aren’t as volatile. Also, taking profits are a bit different when understanding how long to hold. I had to get used to calculating the percentage of these sub stocks to know when I have reached my single and should exit. You shouldn’t hold until it reachers dollars for it to reach your goal, instead you should focus on the percent % gain. Look at the chart above and you’ll know what I mean. Even better, click your StocksToTrade platform and type in this ticker: $CUBV to understand this chart a little better. See the 1 month chart and or a couple days to understand how the tiniest of moves turn into solid singles. 


  • Choppy volume on the left.
  • Begins to attempt a breakout.
  • Consolidation occurs.
  • Confirmed breakout.
  • First Green Day play.
  • Topping.
  • Red day for shorts.
  • Fading volume.
  • Potential to bounce/dip buy but wait for confirmations.

I am not perfect on dip buys, especially with this choppy market from the Coronavirus. Don’t take any of this as trading advice or think that I am telling you how the future will play out in any stock. Don’t trade with money you can’t afford to lose. If you don’t want to lose money but want to practice, then use StocksToTrade’s paper trading option. I do recommend taking screen shots or writing down your ideas to see how accurate you are. The surprise that I can’t wait to tell you about can definitely assist you in your success trading. 

So far we have analyzed 5 charts. Let’s look at some more…

 (Screenshot of $FNHI, Courtesy of StocksToTrade)

$FNHI is another stock that has gone supernova recently. Are you starting to notice the similarities? Tell me, what do you see in this chart? Write it out. Leave me comments below or on social media (on the web version my links are on the right) before you scroll down. I want to know if this analysis is helping you the way it has been helping me. 


  •  I see a boring chart.
  • No volume.
  • Then the magic begins to appear on the right.
  • News can be a catalyst when sparking these flames.
  • It doesn’t hurt to research the ticker on
  • Confirmed BREAKOUT!
  • Potential First Green Day pattern.
  • Consolidation.
  • Breakout/ potential First green day pattern but not perfect so play it safe.
  • Red day for shorts. 
  • Fading volume.
  • Potential dip buy into morning panics for the bounce.

Isn’t it crazy. Without Timothy Sykes, I wouldn’t be here right now. No way would I have taken on this challenge to become consistently profitable and self-sufficient trading Penny Stocks. Investing in my education, once I could afford it, has been the best decision I have made towards financial freedom. What he teaches is worth way more than my bachelors degree. 

Are you ready for another chart? 

(Screenshot of $HVBTF, Courtesy of StocksToTrade)

Hindsight is always 20/20. This may all seem obvious after-the-fact, but that is stock trading for you. By PREPAREing and reviewing trades, you can only become better at recognizing the symptoms for potential profit. No two patterns are exact. History doesn’t repeat but it sure rhymes. Look to the left of this chart. There has been some movement  and some dipping.. so how can you tell that a Supernova may come. No one really knows exactly, but you can notice the characteristics below…


  • Yes there was movement on the left, but look at the volume underneath.
  • Boring volume.
  • Look at the curve that begins a small cup-n-handle.
  • Choppy volume.
  • Place resistance lines..
  • Breakout!
  • Increased volume
  • Potential First Green Day pattern.
  • More breakouts.
  • Red day for the shorts.
  • Fading volume.
  • Dip buy opportunities.
  • Probable fade…

Beginning to feel better? I will post a few more charts below without the characteristics and I want you to practice these then go onto your trading platform and just watch their performance. To confirm the action you can watch Tim’s videos as he teaches these patterns and has taught me. Nevermind, I can’t post anymore photos as, apparently, I have reached the maximum number of photos I can post on Blogger. I won’t even edit this out as I want to be fully transparent. I have about 16 charts altogether that I wanted to share on here that revolved around these breakout Supernovas and their variance. Hopefully the ones above have proven the point that I want to make for recognizing Tim’s Supernova charts and how to prepare incase they happen. 

Waiting for the Perfect Setup

Waiting for these plays can take time. Constantly search Top % Gainers on StocksToTrade.  Sometimes there is a news catalyst and other times you have to recognize the charts. This is definitely not an exact science, but you can prepare for the similar process. Do NOT hold and hope as eventually these will fall to some extent. You can always rebuy later. It is best to take singles than try to swing for a home run and strike out instead. By preparing yourself, you put yourself ahead of many other traders. Always remember that 90% of traders lose. I am not saying you will never lose as long as you prepare, that is not true because you will. We all do. By preparing and sticking to your plan you can increase your odds of success. And if you follow Tim’s #1 Rules: cutting losses quickly, you have a better chance at making back those losses with your next win. 


Thanks again for reading yet another blog post and stay tuned for this surprise that could change the way you trade for the better! Leave comments below or on my social media. Make sure to follow me and check out my profit chart! Focus on the percent% gain more than profit gain as it will help you with your mindset now and for the future as you work towards success! Let me know what you think and I look forward to this reveal as soon as I can! 

Cheers and safe trading!

I want to provide a small disclaimer:

I am in NO way a professional nor do I claim to be. I do not manage anyone’s money nor do I want you to follow my trades. My posts are solely for entertainment purposes and for myself to become more transparent on my trading journey. I use these posts to track my own progress. I do NOT recommend you try my strategy or jump into trading without a verified guru/teacher. I am an untrained trader who has been practicing for a few months and a few days with paper trading on StocksToTrade. I am up $7000+ since the month of June 27th, 2019. By the time you read this I may or may not have traded the stocks I post about. I will not guarantee you will profit from trading as 90% of traders lose. To become consistently profitable is not a typical result. I am in NO way responsible or liable for your decisions or actions as a trader. I, again, am not professional so there will be grammar and spelling errors. Just because I suggest something does not mean your results will be the same as mine if you try. My suggestions are what I am doing, have tried, and what may have or may have not worked for me. Also, make sure not to invest with anything you are not willing to lose, Cheers!
