New ThinkOrSwim Trading Strategies Published

I’ve recently posted several strategy scripts to the website that identify quantifiable edges for my fellow traders. These ThinkOrSwim trading strategies can be traded standalone, or tweaked further and customized to fit an individual’s trading style. They can either be used to setup automated trading systems in other platforms, or traded manually within ThinkOrSwim and improved with price action trading principles. My most recent strategies are all listed under the strategies category on the site, and here’s a quick reference list:

Most of these strategies come straight out of Larry Connors and Cesar Alvarez’s book “Short Term Trading Strategies that Work,” and are specifically for trading the SPY, SPX, or ES futures. But these ThinkOrSwim trading strategies may also provide edges on other instruments, and you can test them on whatever symbols you like to trade, to see if they can be applied profitably there as well.

I hope these strategies are as intriguing to you as they were to me, and hopefully they will provide you a more quantifiable way to determine your edge in the market as well.

This week: 15% off coupon due to site issues

15 percent off coupon code for thinkorswim

Hi traders — I have to apologize for the recent site outage. There was a combination of a DDoS attack experienced by our hosting company, A2 Hosting, and possibly also a WordPress site upgrade that broke some stuff due to incompatibility. Anyway, in either case, it should all be fixed now.

As an apology, I wanted to post a coupon code to say thanks for your loyalty, patience, and understanding. I’m repeatedly amazed at the quality of people I meet through this ThinkOrSwim community and I don’t take it lightly that you all have welcomed me and my work and given me your trust from day one. So thanks again for that.

If there’s anything on the site you’ve been looking at, here’s a one-time code, good for the rest of this week through Sunday night, for an extra 15% off whatever the current price is:

Just type that in the coupon field during checkout and you’ll get 15% off your order.

Thanks again for your patience and enjoy the rest of the trading week!

Nice Write Up and Feedback



Just wanted to say a quick thanks to fellow trader Stephen K. for a nice write up he did about Swimdicators over at his new website, StockTradersJourney.com. Feel free to go check out the post and as well as the other resources he has written about based on his experience working toward becoming a better trader.

Stephen is a Swimdicators customer from the northeastern U.S., a ThinkOrSwim user, and we also recently realized we share a mutual friend in the person of my fellow Nashville trader Jerremy Newsome of Real Life Trading. RLT does a lot of gap trading and some of the classes I took at Jerremy’s old company are what led me to actually program the premarket gap scans in the first place, so that was a pretty cool connection.

I really appreciate Stephen’s positive feedback on my work here and I’ll try to stay worthy of it! 🙂 Thanks!

Low Float Lists Updated

low float stock scan for thinkorswim

Just a quick note here to let all the low float and gap traders out there know that I just updated the low float lists again as of this evening. I realized it was about time to release an update so I went ahead and put the elbow grease in :-). Moving forward, I have added a reminder to my work calendar to go in and update the lists every 2 months.

For those of you who have already purchased the low float stock scan, the new list installation links should be in your order detail page in your My Account > Orders area when you login to your account.

For anyone who’s interested in trading low floats in ThinkOrSwim but hasn’t figured out how to yet, here’s the main low float watch list page where you can learn more about our workaround.

Thanks for being awesome, and enjoy the rest of the week!
