Not many good patterns at the moment as they all gapped down last night, but here are a few i'm watching....

The first one is Yelp, after a triple top its pulled back to the Trend Line, so an opportunity for a short.

I swing blue chip stocks too off the weekly chart most of the time so count me in!
I also find swinging much easier, and more reliable, plus higher rik:reward ratios.

This is what I found also. Day trading for myself at least required too much of my time and was too stressful.

Iím using the same set ups as I did but on a longer time frame. I have all evening to do my scans, can set up trades before the market opens with stop limit orders and attach my exits.

I trade mainly the long side as Canadian tax law treats short trades as income and long as capital gains. I use the reverse ETFs to play the short side.

I do 2 initial scans for my main watch list. I scan the market for stocks in an uptrend and also a scan for strong fundamentals. I combine these 2 lists then scan them for set ups.

A set it and forget it system. The market takes me in to a trade and once in I will manage the trade once a day by adjusting the exits.

I attempt a 1 to 3 risk to reward ratio and experience around 37% wins.

Hi Deadog

Yes I swing trade in ASX with primary instrument CFD and some equity where cannot get the stock thru CFD broker

I trade both short and long and am essentially position trader (EOD) . Time Frame daily whilst using weekly for primary trend reference. Have been trading for 4 years and am part time trader only. Spend couple of hrs most nights but give myself a break Tuesday night (don't bid Wednesdays).

Discretionary trader but to defined rules around capital and money management, R/R, set entry, exit points, and run initial stops etc . Time in varies -- one strategy I have max period of 6 days where others I will decide to trail or force exit. Turn over about 100 trades a year but am not beyond going to cash (out of market) for a couple of months if I sense better to be out for a while.

Happy to converse share strategies thoughts etc

I use MTPredictor, Bullcharts as my main software

Mainly am into ES. But every couple of days or weeks I do get into swings at the same time. Swings are either into equities or volatility. I don't use an DM tools...so have an eye for few equities or something which makes a big move per my criteria playing for 5-30% move in my favour. Also am quick to cut my swing if I realize that swing entry is not good.

Cheers

The site is mostly futures. But I swing trade a lot personally and in fact am doing it more and more vs day trading futures (because of time constraints, and because it is so much easier).

Generally there is a individual thread for each instrument being discussed.

Mike

So as a beginner, should I start with stocks instead of forex?

I would say yes.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
