Ideal trades


Today is developing like sideways days with fairly decent range. So far, around 12:00, we are at 340 points and I would like to show you how ideal trades today should have looked like.

First trade, I took this one, was at 9:15 and it was break above opening range. Entry was above 29410 (point 1). That was break of mid point between pivot and R1. Market quickly relied to R1 and made high of the day at 29600 (point 2). Close could be in that region, so potential profit of 180 points was on cards. Let’s be honest and say it was 150 points with slippage and brokerage.

Second trade, if you are more aggressive, could have been around 29540 on 9:55 bar, with stop loss above high of the day, with risk of 60 points (point 3); or if you are less aggressive 10:20 bar where we closed below 20 exponential moving average (point 4). Market slowly ticked down and tested 50 exponential moving average. You can see how volume increased at that point. Marked did close below once, but just for following bar to close above (point 5). One could have closed position there, but at that point we didn’t know if market will drop further. After that, market bounced back and tested 10/20 exponential moving averages, which was followed with drop again, but on much smaller volume than what the case was on first test of 50 exponential moving average. At 11:10 market traded below 50 ema, to close above it (point 6). This was back test of low made at 10:50, but on much smaller volume. Ideal place to close that short was break of high of that doji, around 29400. So, that could have been possible profit of 140 or 80 points, which is a very nice profit.

That very same point was nice place to go long and that long would still hold, with stop being close below 10 and 20 exponential moving average. In meantime ALSI tested R1 again so that long could earn you some 200 points.

I made first trade, marked with arrows. Then, I made second trade of less aggressive type, but I’ve missed that clear bottom and I’ve closed trade for 20 points loss. Not being focused to spot that low caused me to lose about 100 points on short side and I’ve missed opportunity to be long for some 140 points so far.

Someone could say that it is easy to see in hindsight, but those clues were on chart, as market developed.

Trade with trend!
