Hey there everyone! I hope you all are enjoying 2020! My heart goes out to all of the animals and people of Australia. Make sure to continue spreading awareness of this tragedy and if you haven’t yet, make sure to head over to Karmagawa.com and get some merchandise! Even if you donate a couple dollars, anything helps and all proceeds for January go towards helping Australia! Thank you! (The books profits do not get donated to charity as far as I am aware.

My Stocks To Trade OTC Screener

This year I want to share with you the OTC StocksToTrade Screener I use to help me find the best setups. 

Always look for top % gainers! 

Below are pictures and explanations.



This is the Screener I created and run EVERY DAY starting at 2:45pm EST. My criteria starts with OTCBB OTC Markets (blue square). Next I chose my volume to be greater or equal to 500,000. This lets me see stocks with unusual volume (pink and orange square). Lastly, % change has to be greater or equal to 10.00 (green and yellow square). That is my simple criteria. This allows me to find my stocks pretty quickly when they begin to spike for a breakout, first Green Day, going supernova, etc. 

The next image is an example of results that had shown up the day I did the screen shots for this example. (These stocks are not current so don’t take this as investment advise or as advise on which stocks to currently trade. This is solely an example for entertainment purposes and to show an example of my routine. If you do not see these stocks if you try to replicate my scan, remember this is on a different day and these stocks are very volatile and may change at any second.)

From left to right; Time, Symbol, Net Change, Bid, Ask, Last, % Change, Volume, Trades.
These are the stocks that fit my scan. It looks to me like there were 85 results. So now what? How do I choose my stocks? How do I find them so quickly? Where do I go from here? Well, look at the stock I have highlighted in blue, this stock is ticker symbol $OWCP.

 I will take you from left to right in the order written above. 
Time; 3:43.34PM, Symbol; OWCP, Net Change; 0.0269, Bid; 0.0761, Ask; 0.0769, Last; 0.0767, % Change; +54.10 %, Volume; 38.67m(million), and TRADES; 2,359!

If you notice, there are stocks with a couple trades to a few hundred to the thousands. The bigger the trade number the more I am interested. 

Okay, so this is how I quickly weed out my trades to find the best stocks. Then what? I click on each stock and analyze the charts. I want to see a steady up trend. I first look at the 2 days, this will give me a quick idea as to the current state of the stock. I will show you examples below to give you and idea:

Ugly Chart:

2 day:

How BORING! I exit almost immediately now that I know what I am looking for. I use to double check the 6 month chart for a Supernova. After all,  it fit my criteria, right? WRONG! it only has 2 trades on the screener. I will show you below as I just took this screen shot of my screener. 

Below is a current screen I just ran. High lighted you will see 2 trades from this stock above. 

Now I will show you the 6m chart:

Wow! That is SO BORING! Yes, it spiked in the past, but look what it is currently doing. No one else cares about it and neither do I!


Back to my original scan with $OWCP.. It had 2k+ trades. SO what did that chart look like? below is an Image of it’s 6m chart:

Won’t you take a look at this beauty! oh my! Have you ever seen a stock so gorgeous!? This is a recent runner! Not the beginning, but after the run up which makes for a potential dip buy, or maybe spike depending on different factors. Tim says to safely short, short the First red day of the supernova crash. I don’t short as I am new and have a small account, so I won’t be explaining anything about shorting as of now. I actually missed this stock on the First Green Day there after that big red candle, but I took this screen shot to see how it would perform. It had a small spike into the open after that First Green Day. This is the chart pattern I look for. It is nice when You find them in the beginning of this Run-up. You can see there was no interest for a very long time and then all of the sudden there’s unusual volume under the candles and that is a very good indicator for technical analysis. This will take lots of practice so paper trading really helps!

Below is the 2 day chart:


As you can see from this 2-day chart, the FGD (First Green Day) is on the left. You would want to buy the morning spike, on the dip after the spike, or on the dip just before the spike into closing. (I prefer morning spikes or evening before close. I don’t trade afternoons usually) To be safe, you could take profits just before the bell rang to end the day as you can see the the HOD on the left acts as a good resistance level. If you had to hold overnight on the right, you would want to sell almost immediately to lock in profits! With a sketchy overall market, it is best not to be too, too aggressive and lock in those safe profits. As Tims says, “Singles add up”!

This is my daily routine! I also have a bunch of stocks with a few hundred trades and a potential supernova pattern, but something may just be off, like bad overall market, no news, bad news, less volume than I prefer, etc. I just watch these stocks the next morning and take notes over the overall performance of my watches. This gives me a clearer idea of how these are performing and whether they would be safe to hold overnight, or where they are in the pattern, to gauge my next trade.
In Closing

As Tim Sykes always repeats, He loves OTC First Green Days! These stocks are a little safer as they do not trade premarket or after-hours. But you may have to be quick as the market opens! These stocks are extremely volatile so be careful. Don’t invest anything you aren’t willing to lose! This is the only Screener I use for my beloved OTCs. I am not saying it won’t change with my experience in the future, but right now it is very simple and follows K.I.S.S. very well! (Keep It Stupid Simple). 

Make sure to leave a comment or find me on Twitter @TessaLamping and ask me more trading related questions! Anything I can do to help. Also, I updated my StocksToTrade software (If you don’t already have the software, I totally recommend getting it StockToTrade.com) and I reset my account to $2,000, added the PDT Rule, set Commissions to $6.95 to over prepare, and added the execution delay to make myself as restricted as possible these next few months. My goal is to make about $1,000 more before going live!!!! Check out my statistics on Profit.ly under TessaLamping or TessaL.

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!
