The number one issue traders have is entry and exit. By putting together a simple plan that focuses on good risk to reward you can increase your chances of successful swing trades considerably. Successful entry and exit are what separates the 10% that win trading stocks from the 90% that lose. My alert service uses Skype, text message and email to detail swing trades in real-time making it easy for people to follow my buy and sell strategy.
The following small caps had 300 trades or more on Friday November 18th, 2011 and managed to make gains in a choppy market. I’ve detailed precise trading ranges to consider with one major theme consistent on all charts and that’s tight stop losses with considerably better upside potential before major resistance. As mentioned above, good risk to reward is what I constantly preach and look for before I ever alert a real trade to my subscribers. The market caps on these stocks ranges from $15 million to $640 million.
In this post I’ve only looked at the technical analysis. Additional considerations should include solid fundamental analysis before making any trade – something I do before any real trade I send to my subscribers. Items such as recent news, upcoming earnings dates, short interest and overall market conditions are a good place to start. Keep in mind, if it’s under $1 it’s certain to have quite a few problems so over staying your welcome is often a recipe for losses.
