Bring a consistent you to markets to improve your trading

Mar 17th, 2017 | By | Category: General Comments
Trader wants to improve his trading consistency.   (Please assume Trader has some edge in markets.) Trader might double down on their efforts to perform better during market hours.  If I just focus better.  If I just take only A+ trades.  If I just wait for my trades more patiently.  If I just use this indicator.  If I just size up in my best trades.   If I just stop making those trades.  If I just give my trades more room.  And on and on and on....... What if the progress is not in the effort during market hours? We know markets are always changing.  We know that each trade is not quite the same.  This Read more [...]

I like this trading pattern in Mattel ($MAT)

Jan 26th, 2017 | By | Category: General Comments
I like this trading pattern in $MAT: a) stock gapping down b) stock with a negative news catalyst c) fight on the tape where the seller wins d) holding below VWAP e) no longer term technical support in sight f) staircase stepping down visually on our charts g) hold short for a real move We have this pattern today in MAT. MAT gapped down. It had terrible earnings: There was a huge fight on the tape at 27.45, where the seller won. It is holding below VWAP, which is 27.33. The next longer term technical support level is not until near 26ish. The chart is visually appealing. The point Read more [...]

A trading strategy newly stressed on the prop desk

Jan 25th, 2017 | By | Category: General Comments
A tight wedge pattern for Stocks In Play is favorite trading strategy newly stressed on our proprietary trading desk. Two chart examples of this trading pattern were seen just yesterday with ATI: and CSX: I prefer when these wedge patterns appear in a Stock In Play- something with a news catalyst behind it. Breakouts from these wedge patterns work best with these patterns when increasing volume enters the stock. I prefer buying these patterns when they are holding above VWAP. My observation is not enough active traders utilize this strategy.  Many developing and new active traders should emphasize Read more [...]
