The primary goal of Alpha Trends is to provide subscribers with swing trade ideas (generally referred to as multi-day holds).
There are unique opportunities to learn in real time and to capitalize on intraday opportunities. In the chatrooms the focus is:• Live education and guidance from Brian Shannon, CMT • Real-time feedback on YOUR ideas for YOUR timeframe • Clear, concise market views to assist your shorter term trades • Interaction with other Alphatrends members You will notice that the Alphatrends chat rooms are unlike others you may have been involved in.• It is a chat (not chatter) room, our focus is on making money.
We talk, out loud this time, about his upcoming trip to Las Vegas, my recent visit to the dentist ("Oh, sounds like you I got really into that scene,") and a vacation he once took in New York ("I think I fell in love 32 times or something. If you opt for face-to-face, you'll probably run into the same few people over and over. California is right: talking face-to-face is high-pressure, and it requires a lot of attention.
It was great.") He offers me some unsolicited advice about sex and fingernail hygiene, and we awkwardly say goodbye. The beauty of being high on the internet is that every time your mind wants to change directions, you've got a railroad switch readily available, and with Puff Puff Chat set to text and tucked away somewhere in your browser, it's just one of many distractions available to you on your journey.
It's dark, so I can't really see him, but he looks like he's freaking out a little, and he doesn't seem that interested in talking to me.
Our conversation goes something like this: Puff Puff Chat is Chatroulette for stoners.
By the time he mentions that he's always wanted to visit New York, I'm so smitten I almost invite him to stay at my apartment. He's a student, and he works "as a cleaner at a mental hospital lol," a job he describes, accurately I'm sure, as "trippy as shit." He spends his day among "lunatics," "addicts," and "little girls that are so skinny it just breaks my heart," he says, but his most intense story involves a naked grandma. Person: they imagine stuff sometimes, and she thought i did something and started chasing me.
He teaches a few basic mantras that, combined with a disciplined risk management approach are all that one needs.
The only hard part is managing your own emotions, and he even helps with that with a bit of tough love when it is deserved. No nonsense advice, identification of low risk opportunities and constant guidance and instruction will have you “making the trade your own” in no time.
His whole approach from the daily videos, to the midday update and chat room instruction is the only thing you need to become a more disciplined and profitable trader.
Did you know James Franco has a little Swede in him?
Also Swedish, but Swedish-Swedish: the third person I meet on Puff Puff Chat, a 20-year-old living near Stockholm whose unflappable positivity makes me feel warm and tingly all over (Or maybe it's just the weed? A representative excerpt from our conversation:how nice it is.
