I want to show you the power of the morning panic pattern. This week I called the best morning panic of 2020 so far \u2014 in the midst of absolute market insanity. First, you must understand that studying the past is crucial to learning patterns like the morning panic. Just when I thought the market was starting to slow down from coronavirus mania, stocks went bonkers on April 23. Sub-$1 oil stocks started flying in the newest round of sector momentum. With a total collapse of oil demand, the market\u2019s extremely volatile. For the first time in history, crude oil dropped below $0 a share. The last month has been market madness \u2014 and my students report absolutely crushing it every day. https:\/\/twitter.com\/timothysykes\/status\/1253416022981218305 But while most traders were distracted by oil stocks, the best play of the day was on one of the hottest OTC stocks of 2020. But before I get to that\u2026 I want to show you the power of my favorite pattern\u2026 The Morning Panic Pattern https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v2YKHl_iAKz4 I\u2019m primarily a long-biased trader. I don\u2019t like going short. I think it\u2019s an overcrowded niche and the risk\/reward is terrible. Long-biased trading can offer better opportunities \u2026 if you know what to look for. Every morning, newbies fire up their scanners and chase the largest percent gainer of the day. Chasing stocks up 50%\u2013100% isn\u2019t a strategy \u2014 that\u2019s gambling. Instead\u2026 Wait for panic. What does panic look like? Here\u2019s a classic example from last year... EDXC chart: 4\/23\/19 Intraday, 1-minute candle \u2014 courtesy of StocksToTrade.com After a multi-week run from 30 cents to 75 cents, CBD Unlimited, Inc. (OTCPK: EDXC) gapped down on April 23, 2019, and started tanking. In the first hour of the day, it pulled from the low $0.70s all the way to $0.314 \u2014 a drop of over 50%. That\u2019s panic.\u00a0 Any long traders who held from the previous day were stuck in their positions and couldn\u2019t sell their shares. As more traders tried to sell, the stock continued lower \u2026 and lower. It\u2019s extremely difficult to sell shares during a drop like this so people start panicking \u2014 hence the morning panic pattern. Before I show you the best morning panic this year\u2026 What You Need to Know About the Morning Panic Pattern Here are a few critical elements of the morning panic pattern: \tFirst, the stock must be up a lot \u2014 at least 50%. The higher the stock runs, the bigger the panic. I don\u2019t want to try to dip buy a stock that\u2019s only up 20% over a few days. There\u2019s not enough meat on the bone. Wait until they\u2019re extended. \tDon\u2019t randomly buy a stock that\u2019s down huge in the morning. Companies have bad news all the time. I want a stock that\u2019s a recent runner, not a company with a negative catalyst. \tDon\u2019t rush into the panic. Stocks can panic much further than you think. I\u2019ve seen stocks drop over 90% in a day. Wait until the stock begins to test support levels and buyers step in on level 2. Here\u2019s a great live example. \tCut losses quickly \u2014 it\u2019s my #1 rule for a reason. It\u2019s difficult to nail the bottom of panic, so sometimes I enter too early. If that happens, cut the loss and try again. Holding the loss further into the panic could result in a huge loss. Alright, it's time. Here\u2019s the stock I perfectly called the morning panic on... Decision Diagnostics Corp. (OTCPK: DECN) In my weekly Q&A Trading Challenge webinar, I told my students to watch DECN for a morning panic dip buy. https:\/\/twitter.com\/timothysykes\/status\/1253358198087577601 If you\u2019re serious about trading, you need to join the Challenge. All my top students come from the Challenge. I don\u2019t accept everyone. But if you think you have what it takes \u2026 Apply for the Trading Challenge today. Anyway \u2026 I made over $3,000 in less than 10 minutes* and caught it all on video. God bless this pattern. Burn this chart into your memory...\u00a0 DECN chart: 2-days, 1-minute candle \u2014 courtesy of StocksToTrade.com My top students nailed this dip buy. They\u2019ve studied all 546 of my morning panic video lessons and the 850+ dip buy lessons. Watch every single one of them. The best time to start is now. Who knows when this lockdown will end. Take advantage of it. (*Please note: my results are not typical. I\u2019ve spent years developing exceptional skills and knowledge. Always remember trading is risky. Never risk more than you can afford.) My DECN Trade Plan When stocks go supernova, I start watching them for morning panics. After talking with my students during the Challenge webinar, I put DECN on the top of my watchlist. Here\u2019s my plan on DECN for April 23: \u201cDECN should be the best potential panic and bounce if it can drop hard and quick enough over the inevitable disappointment of their update regarding test kits.\u201d How did I know it would happen on April 23? Take a look at the daily chart: DECN chart: 3-month, 1-day candle \u2014 courtesy of StocksToTrade.com DECN ran from a penny in February to a high of nearly 50 cents on April 23. The stock was up 50 times in less than two months. That\u2019s overextension. Since the stock was up 5,000%, it was long overdue for a pullback. But what gave me the conviction on April 23 specifically was its looming test kit update. The company scheduled the update to release midday. I was slightly disappointed DECN didn\u2019t panic out of the gate, but I kept watching it. I was waiting for the update to hit the news wire because I thought this could be a classic \u201cbuy the rumor, sell the news\u201d situation. How My DECN Morning Panic Trade Played Out First, here are my comments from this morning panic\u2026 10:26:30 AM: "$DECN news out https:\/\/tim.ly\/2VUor4L c'mon big panic please" 10:29:26 AM: "$DECN paniccccc time, congrats to shorts" 10:30:32 AM: "Beautiful\/merciless $DECN selling" Within ten minutes of the update, the stock panicked over 50%. I saw some buyers stepping in at 22 cents. So I tried buying 25,000 shares but ended up filling 75,000 shares at $0.225 because I put in multiple orders. I didn\u2019t want to miss this incredible opportunity. Check out my verified trade here. I\u2019m usually too conservative with my trades. I alerted to my students that I was only looking for a quick 15%\u201330% bounce. The bounce came quick and I locked in all my shares at a $0.267 average... I hugely underestimated DECN, but I don\u2019t care. I took my $3,000* and got the morning panic pattern on video for you. This video lesson will be gold. Stay tuned. DECN bounced all the way to 36 cents before flattening out for the rest of the day. What an opportunity. (*Please note: my results are not typical. I\u2019ve spent years developing exceptional skills and knowledge. Always remember trading is risky. Never risk more than you can afford.) How My Students Played DECN So many of my students report crushing this play. More importantly, a ton learned how predictable the morning panic pattern can be. I\u2019m so proud of these students. Especially\u2026 Two of my newest six-figure students, Jack Kellogg and Kyle Williams, perfectly outlined their plans on DECN in this week\u2019s TWIST episode.

So blessed to be part of your group.\u201d So many students report killing it! It\u2019s hard to keep up. Use these traders as inspiration. Know what\u2019s possible if you study hard enough. What\u2019s Next For DECN This morning I woke up to the news that DECN has been suspended from trading by the SEC. https:\/\/twitter.com\/timothysykes\/status\/1253678301236740098?s20 Remember, most of these stocks are garbage. Never believe the news these companies are pumping out, especially if it's about the coronavirus pandemic. Penny stocks are penny stocks for a reason. If DECN really had the testing kits it claimed it did, it wouldn\u2019t be trading on the OTC market. It was a great trading vehicle but never should have been a long-term investment. I sincerely hope none of you are stuck in this halt. It will open much lower ... probably on the grey sheets. Conclusion The morning panic pattern is a classic that I\u2019ve used for years. I think it\u2019s a great place for new traders to start because it can offer huge percent opportunities. DECN bounced 50% in fifteen minutes. You won\u2019t find that anywhere besides penny stocks. The pattern is simple and predictable. Most importantly, it's repeatable. Want to capture the next morning panic? Join my Trading Challenge.
