A favorite trade of Co-Founder and trading author of One Good Trade and The PlayBook, Mike Bellafiore. Learn a trade that can find you up $1500 in the first few minutes of trading.
BIG DAWG TRADE
Price volatility is a crutial component of trading. Should the trading day reveal a lack of volatility for a period of time. This strategy attempts to capture the inevitable break of the defined support or resitance levels.
This trading strategy covers which technical analysis tools are most relevant, and how to choose the indicators that work for you.
Learn how to determine the most likely direction of the stock in the first 45 minutes of trading and how to place excellent risk/reward trades with this knowledge. Great for trading stocks with fresh news.
All market participants have the same information when a new company begins trading. This results in clearly defined price areas of importance and cleaner technical analysis trades. An initial public offering can create a trading opportunity in a slow market environment.
2ND DAY TRADE
One of two of the best trades recommended for developing traders. This trade uses unusual price action, coupled with a news catalyst from the prior trading session, to find a follow-through trade. A slower swing trade for those who do not like fast-moving stocks.
ELITE TRADING 101
This is the first trade taught at our proprietary trading desk in NYC. All firm traders learn by cutting their teeth on this setup. This is a swing trade. This trade captures very large moves in stocks that have reported unusual fundamental news.
Areas of resistance can offer great levels to trade off of. The Return Pullback trade reviews the trading opportunity that derives from a stock which fails to clear the inflection level - displaying a breakout failure.
Scalping setups do not require large moves to be greatly profitable, and more often than other setups can offer a highly attractive risk/reward ratio.
Spotting breakout levels offer many trading opportunities no matter how the price action develops once approaching the area of resistance. Our Stuffed Trade setup reviews how to identify and take advantage of rejected new highs.
MULTIPLE TIMEFRAME SUPPORT TRADES
Learn one of the favorite trades of the professional big money proprietary trader. Big money short-term traders look for stocks holding up, prop them up, and squeeze shorts. Mastering this trade can bring an outsize return on trading capital.
DR. S TRADE
In-house psychologist, Dr. Brett Steenbarger, has formulated this trading strategy after recognizing a pattern that develops in stocks during the opening session. Unusual volume at market open can signal a developing trading opportunity.
MARKET PLAY TRADE
Some trading vehicles are tied to the overall market performance. Most notably SPY is commonly used as this captures the equity market as a whole, but the 'Market Play' trading setup can involve using one of many proxies to capitalize on market-wide movements.
Another highly effective trading strategy for active traders. Best for traders not afraid to embrace technology and make fast decisions
Catching a falling knife is a notoriously difficult trade that can result in large losses, drawing down as a company is trending lower. The Bounce Trade setup explains which signals to look for when timing entry of a downtrending stock.
GAP AND GO TRADE
Stock prices typically move away from their closing price either overnight or in the extended hours session before the open. The resulting price difference (gap) is the basis of the Gap & Go setup. Complementing the gap directionally, the morning session's characteristics are used to identify potential for follow-through.
LOW FLOAT TRADE
A favorite of beginning retail traders. Mostly because this trade is not as competitive as trading an AAPL when it has fresh news. A trade that requires extreme discipline and risk management.
Trading opportunites arise from thousands of stocks daily. Stock Filters allow traders to find opportunities that meet a set of criteria - that they may have missed otherwise. Stock filters help traders find the best stocks for them.
VWAP WITH SHARK
Our most commonly used indicator at SMB is VWAP (volume-weighted moving average) to support a trade idea. Learn one of the favorite trades from one of our better traders. Use a technical indicator that works very well for active traders to make better trade decisions.
