This week\u2019s top penny stocks list has summer doldrums all over it. Things have slowed down. July was my smallest profit month since February 2020... LOL I didn't even realize it was month-end until so many https:\/\/t.co\/occ8wKmlgm students started posting their recaps, +$33k for me in July, I think that's my worst month of 2021 & maybe even since the beginning of the pandemic...but screw it, I'm also having a blast in Europe! \u2014 Timothy Sykes (@timothysykes) July 30, 2021 Thankfully, we still have press releases and promoters to keep things moving. But A lot of stocks are one-day spikers \u2014 which means you have to be ready. And it\u2019s key to NOT hold and hope. The big question: how long will it last? I won\u2019t try to guess. As always, I\u2019ll watch and learn. My goal is to trade only when something fits my patterns to a T. Let\u2019s do this... Top Penny Stocks List: August 2, 2021 As you go through this week\u2019s penny stocks list, remember\u2026 Market environment is one of the seven indicators you should look at. Last week there were breakouts with no follow-through. Trading volume was down. That makes for one-day runners and choppy trading. These are the OTCs I\u2019m watching this week... And here are the listed stocks I\u2019m watching... 3 Penny Stocks to Watch This Week These are just a few of the stocks I\u2019m watching this week. Be sure to check out the monthly watchlist, too. Top Penny Stocks List #1: Drone Guarder Inc. (OTCPK: DRNG) Drone Guarder is yet another dark or defunct OTC trying to regain \u2018current pink\u2019 status before SEC rule 15c2-11 goes into effect on September 28. On July 14, the company entered a share purchase agreement with Video River Networks Inc. (OTCPK: NIHK). The deal gives Video River Networks a 55% controlling share of Drone Guarder. The company hasn\u2019t submitted any filings to OTCMarkets since 2018. Its last press release was in 2019. Meanwhile, information for investors comes via the Drone Guarder Twitter account. Check out the DRNG one-year chart\u2026 DRNG was up 60% on Friday, closing at a 52-week high of $0.108. I\u2019ll watch for potential dip buys into any big panic. And I\u2019ll also watch for any big spike, ideally with volume and news. See details of my DRNG trades here.* Top Penny Stocks List #2: RushNet Inc. (OTCPK: RSHN) RushNet Inc. is a holding company. RSHN spiked 1,815% in June after the company acquired diagnostics lab heliosDX. RSHN started moving again on July 15 after the company announced its first new board member. On July 26, the company announced it will feature in a six-part interview series. The company also appointed a new chief operating officer on July 28. Check out the RSHN one-year chart... RSHN is off its June highs. But it\u2019s still up a lot from where it started and closed up 32% on Friday. I\u2019m watching for potential dip-buys into any big morning panic. I\u2019ll also watch for morning spikes with news and big volume. But I won\u2019t trade it randomly, it needs to fit my patterns. See details of my RSHN trades here.* Top Penny Stocks List #3: NanoVibronix (NASDAQ: NAOV) NanoVibronix develops small, disposable, ultrasound therapy devices. On July 22, the company announced positive results from a study of patients using its UroShield device. The stock spiked 257% the following day. On July 26, the company announced it shipped the first order of PainShield Plus systems. On July 29, the company received registration approval for UroShield from TGA Australia\u2026 CEO Brian Murphy said, \u201cApproval in Australia is yet another material milestone towards full commercialization of our products, particularly given the rigorous standards by which our UroShield device was measured by TGA. \u201cWe are enthusiastic about partnering with DukeHill HC, an industry leader with significant sales resources and strong distribution capabilities in Australia. DukeHill HC have already placed their initial order validating their confidence in the technology and market potential, which we are on schedule to fulfil in the coming week, which should lay a firm foundation for immediate revenue recognition.\u201d Read the full press release here. Here\u2019s the NAOV one-year chart... As you can see, NAOV is choppy, which isn\u2019t my ideal setup. I\u2019m watching for potential dip buys into any big morning panics. But I\u2019m in no rush to buy randomly or chase it too high. Let\u2019s look at a trade from last week... Trade Review This week\u2019s trade is another example of why I use StocksToTrade Breaking News.** Yes, I\u2019m an investor. Call me biased. But if I wasn\u2019t an investor, I\u2019d still use it. That\u2019s how good it is. I\u2019m proud to be an investor in such a high-quality service. Adhera Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCPK: ATRX) Adhera Therapeutics is a clinical-stage biopharma focused on identifying advanced drug candidates. On July 29, the company announced a licensing agreement for a Parkinson\u2019s Disease candidate. StocksToTrade Breaking News alerted it before the market opened. Check out the chart with my entry and exit comments. (Notice I took two trades. I\u2019ll explain both below.) ATRX chart: July 29, STT Breaking News and first green day plays \u2014 courtesy of StocksToTrade.com On the first trade, I only got a partial fill because it was moving so fast. I\u2019d seen the news premarket thanks to STT Breaking News. Even though it was a small position, it was an 80% win for a $990 profit.* ATRX kept going and more than doubled from my buy alert. I rebought it in the afternoon as it fit my first green day setup. It pulled back but was still holding big gains with a strong news catalyst. But there was one more thing I looked at\u2026 On July 28, Halberd Corporation (OTCPK: HALB) had similar price action. It also spiked big with a similar news catalyst, had a pullback with consolidation, and closed strong. So my thesis on the second ATRX trade was based, in part, on watching HALB the day before. The percent gain on the second ATRX trade was smaller at roughly 32%. But a bigger position size led to a $1,365 profit.* Monday Motivation Last week I shared a little insight into why risk-taking is important in life. But I also emphasized that you DO NOT have to take big risks in trading. Nor should you, especially in the beginning. Let\u2019s burn it into your brain this week. You\u2019ll see why when you read the \u2018Student Q&A\u2019 section below. First, check this out\u2026 One of the most famous poems in the English language is \u201cIf\u201d by Rudyard Kipling. It\u2019s about equanimity. But it often gets quoted out of context. Here\u2019s a stanza from the poem as an example\u2026 If you can make one heap of all your winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss \u2014 from \u201cIf\u201d by Rudyard Kipling Pay attention \u2014 this is important. In context, that means taking risks is part of life. Most successful people fail, and fail again, before they\u2019re successful.\u00a0 But a word of warning to anyone who quotes it out of context\u2026 Out of context, it\u2019s just bad advice \u2014 especially in trading! NEVER risk everything going for a home run as a trader. For that matter, never risk even 50% of your account. I don\u2019t know how many times I have to repeat myself, but I\u2019ll do it again\u2026 Gain Consistency, THEN Size Up Trade small and focus on the process. Gain consistency with time and practice. Only THEN should you size up. No newbie should size up or risk big. EVER. How do I define a newbie? Anyone who hasn\u2019t been trading for at least two years and doesn\u2019t have hundreds of trades under their belt. You don\u2019t need to make one heap of all your winnings and risk it on one trade. And you shouldn\u2019t hold through 10%, 20%, 30%, or bigger losses.\u00a0 If you do something that stupid\u2026 PLEASE tell other newbies about it so they can learn, too. \u00a0 Again, I love the poem. But taken out of context it\u2019s possible to get the wrong idea. Be aware of context and always keep things in perspective.\u00a0 Which leads me to this week\u2019s... Trading Mentor Q&A This week\u2019s question will help if you\u2019ve ever wondered how I define max panic\u2026 \u201cI went in 50% of my account on $FERN dip since the panic was max and got screwed big time. How do you trade a bounce like $FERN where it had so many failed bounces?\u201d The simple answer is, you don\u2019t. I tried. But it didn\u2019t bounce so I stopped. See details of my FERN trade here. But this question brings up something important. What my student thought was max panic wasn\u2019t. I don\u2019t see max panic in this chart\u2026 FERN chart: July 27 intraday, not max panic \u2014 courtesy of StocksToTrade.com That\u2019s a gradual decline. And it\u2019s also exactly what I\u2019m talking about when I call something a chop-fest. It dropped 11% and stuttered. Then 20% with a meaningless bounce. And it just kept doing it. Drop \u2026 bounce \u2026 drop \u2026 bounce \u2026 drop. That\u2019s not max panic. It\u2019s choppy, fugly, and frustrating. Now check out the July 12 intraday chart for DarkPulse Inc. (OTCPK: DPLS). This is what max panic looks like... DPLS chart: July 12 intraday, perfect panic pattern \u2014 courtesy of StocksToTrade.com Now that\u2019s panic. There were no green candles on the way down. Just because a stock is down 35% doesn\u2019t mean it\u2019s max panic. You have to pay attention to more than just the percentage drop. Look at the price action. Are stop losses getting taken out? Does the sell-off speed up? Study the DPLS chart. The panic is the opposite of a ramp into a parabolic spike. There\u2019s a frenzy \u2026 a frothiness. Which leads to... This Week\u2019s Top Tested Trading Tip The student who put 50% of his account into one trade because he thought it was max panic was wrong. He was dead wrong about it being max panic. And he went WAY too big. This is why I teach students to trade small in the beginning. Never size up when you don\u2019t even know the patterns or what price action to look for. Do you see people who can barely swim trying to do Olympic-level dives with five somersaults? NO! If you go too big and win, you learn the wrong lesson. If you go too big and lose, hopefully, you learn the right lesson. So learn... Millionaire Mentor Four years ago, Jack Kellogg had his first green month as a trader. He made total profits of $1,030.* It came after six months of losing \u2026 Loss after painful loss. That first green month was a drop in the hat compared to what Jack is doing now. (Check out Jack\u2019s Profit.ly chart here.*) But it was an important month in his journey. It showed him what\u2019s possible\u2026 This is EXACTLY why I love teachings much! I want more dedicated students like @Jackaroo_Trades and more https:\/\/t.co\/occ8wKmlgm student millionaires!!! WHO'S NEXT?!?!? WHO WANTS IT BAD ENOUGH AND IS WILLING TO STUDY HARDER\/PUSH THEMSELVES FURTHER THAN THEY EVER THOUGHT POSSIBLE! https:\/\/t.co\/DVTVo1kVXs \u2014 Timothy Sykes (@timothysykes) July 28, 2021 To so many new traders, Jack is a living legend. But he\u2019d be the first to tell you that it\u2019s all about hard work, preparation, and risk management. Keep in mind that Jack pushed himself hard. Maybe more than any previous student. He\u2019s an outlier. He truly is a living legend. But the key is that he started small and focused on the process. Over a decade of teaching, I\u2019ve seen that your early losses and gains don\u2019t matter. They\u2019re irrelevant. What can you learn? What rules, strategies, and patterns can you implement into your own process? Can you refine your process over time? And\u2026 How much are you willing to grind when it seems like you\u2019re going nowhere? At the end of 2019, when Jack had made roughly $160,000 after 18 months of grinding, he wondered if it was really worth it.* He decided to stick with it. Mindset Mastery \u00a9 Millionaire Media, LLC In the book \u201cMastery,\u201d George Leonard devotes an entire chapter to \u2018loving the plateau.\u2019 \u201cIf our life is a good one, a life of mastery, most of it will be spent on the plateau. If not, a large part of it may well be spent in restless, distracted, ultimately self-destructive attempts to escape the plateau.\u201d\u00a0\u00a0 Restless, distracted, self-destructive attempts to escape the plateau\u2026 That\u2019s an almost perfect description of degenerate gunslingers\u2026 Traders who can\u2019t walk away and never learn. They swing for the fences, learning the wrong lessons when they win. Everything worthwhile in life, anything you see people do at a high level, takes time. But what most people don\u2019t understand is that there are always periods where it seems like there\u2019s no progress. That\u2019s the plateau. And it\u2019s during the plateau that what you do becomes more than habit. It becomes who you are... Making a watchlist becomes more than something you do \u2014 it\u2019s who you are. Journaling your trades becomes more than something you do. Again, it\u2019s who you are. Focusing on the process instead of profits \u2026 becomes more than something you do. Trading becomes who you are. That\u2019s what makes traders like Jack, Kyle, Matt, Tim Grittani, Bryce, Mariana, and other top students special. They learned to embrace the plateau, to love it, and to prepare for the next surge of learning. It shows on their profit charts. We CAN Do Better We live on an amazing planet in amazing times.
