Welcome to "my" world of SIMPLIFIED TECHNICAL SWING TRADING. Stock trading has been my hobby for 25+ years and I use technical swing trading to manage my 401K/Roth IRA accounts for retirement.
This board represents stocks I track/trade and continue the watch list that was started in 5/17/15 to teach my supervisor who lost her husband unexpectedly and since has been used to teach different groups of people new to stock trading how to set BUY/SELL points based on basic technical indicators (Will be migrating more content to IH board in time from wordpress blog site) - https://stocktradingmodel.wordpress.com/
Following criterias will be used for this board:
- Listed and OTC stocks priced below $3
- High volume stocks (with exceptions)
- Stocks approaching or undergoing rebound (according to Swing Trading Template
The technical indicators used on the Swing Trading Template with faster 5/30 Moving Average graphing (Instead of slower 50/200 MA default) provide usable more realistic practical triggers to track and determine BUY points for stocks undergoing Dead Cat Bounce/Reversal/Rounding Bottom/Cup and Handle/Breakout Up/Covering Short Position/Short Squeeze and SELL points for Pull Back/Short Position/Rounding Top/Reversal/Breakout Down
Here are some Investopedia definitions used for technical swing trading that range from BUY to SELL and SHORT to COVER:
Dead Cat Bounce (Even dead cat can bounce if it falls hard/high enough) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/d/deadcatbounce.asp
Technical Rally (Share price rising against company fundamentals usually caused by Short Positions Covering) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/t/technicalrally.asp
Reversal (Stocks move up and down and sideways and up and down, etc.) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/r/reversal.asp
Rounding Bottom (The Swing Trading Template is used to BUY at the bottom of the rebound for higher trade return) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/r/roundingbottom.asp
Triangle (Share price swing narrows) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/t/triangle.asp
Triangle will lead to Breakout Up/Down - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/b/breakout.asp
Cup and Handle (After initial rebound and profit taking, if continued upward, will form trading channel) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/c/cupandhandle.asp
Trading Channel (After 5MA crosses above 30MA and continues to rise above 30MA within SUPPORT/RESISTANCE lines) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/t/tradingchannel.asp
Rounding Top (Time to SELL) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/r/roundingtop.asp
Profit Taking (Locking in profit. You don't make money until you SELL) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/p/profittaking.asp
Priull Back (Share price falling) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/p/pullback.asp
Short Selling (Making money while share price falls) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/s/shortselling.asp
Short Covering (Usually causes Technical Rebound against company fundamentals) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/s/shortcovering.asp
Short Squeeze (Shorts covering in a frenzy panic to stop loss) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/s/shortsqueeze.asp
Buying or going Long (And we repeat the cycle of BUY/SELL) - https://www.investopedia.com/terms/l/long.asp
HOW TO USE STOCK SCREENER TO IDENTIFY REBOUNDING STOCKS:
Usually on a weekly basis, I will run the stock screener to identify stocks that may be rebounding or about to rebound.
Currently I am using FinViz with following filters and sorted by price - https://finviz.com/screener.ashx?v=141&f=geo_usa,sh_avgvol_o500,sh_curvol_o1000,sh_price_u3&o=price
- Price under $3
- 500,000+ average volume
- 1,000,000+ daily volume
HOW TO SET BUY/SELL POINTS USING TECHNICAL INDICATORS:
I will then do a technical chart review (using the Swing Trading Template) for each stock and if a stock is about to rebound, I will add to the watch list as WATCH. If a stock is rebounding, I will add as BUY. (Since OTC stocks carry potential for large gains, I also include them in my watch list)
* Revision to watch list 12/3/18 - Adding "BUY with Caution" and "SPECULATE" to watch list to provide greater flexibiity. BUY with Caution will be used for stocks about to rebound with potential to drop which will invoke moving to WATCH if rebound doesn't continue (In comparison, BUY will be used for stocks showing definite strong rebound activities). SPECULATE will be used for stocks with questionable technicals but have potential for very large short-term gains.
Here's an example of swing trading template applied to 6 month chart of Yahoo using 5/30 MA – http://stockcharts.com/h-sc/ui
- WATCH indicated as 5MA (Blue line) fell below 30MA (Red line).
- BUY indicated as 5MA rebounded and MACD (Black line) crossed over signal line (Red line) and histogram went from negative to positive along with RSI rebound from 30.
- HOLD indicated as 5MA crossed above 30MA and stayed above 30MA.
- SELL indicated with RSI at 70 with price/MACD peaking and 5MA fell towards 30MA.
MANAGING 401K/ROTH IRA WITH MUTUAL FUNDS:
Simply putting money into 401K/ROTH IRA without managing could cause you to lose hundreds to thousands of dollars each day as fund balances grow. You can use technical charting to manage mutual funds to reduce loss of account balance each month (Also consider using funds with lower cost/fees).
For Large Cap Index mutual fund - Run DJIA chart and when BUY is signaled, move money into fund then when SELL is indicated, move money to cash.
For Small Cap Index mutual fund - Run Nasdaq chart and when BUY is signaled, move money into fund then when SELL is indicated, move money to cash.
Hope you are successful in your trades and if you benefit from information on this board, please "Pay It Forward" to someone deserving in your life in need and start checking off items on your bucket list.
