  1. Hi there Continuing my example of preliminary analysis for day trading per attachments. Please feel free to send comments and discussions for benefit of out BBT Forum team. This is record for end of day data showing entry and exit points and other notes. This is a live document during trading hours and mark-ups and notes updated thereon to suit. The graphical analysis/design is based on Fisher ACD method for ORB trades. For this analysis I have included the Central Pivot Range, hence Fisher ACD/PR method for ORB trades. The CPR helps in identifying potential trading bias (bullish or bearish) as well as major support/resistance point. I am posting mark-ups for AAPL and INTU. I have also included examples from analysis on Trading View....more flexible than my regular trading platform. Please note this is not an investment advice. Please seek investment advise from your own investment advisor.

      Thanks Peter. Have a great day.

  6. Hi there Please see my reply/post to Silviu earlier today, ref ORB. , for some helpful comments. Thank you.
  7. Hello Silviu Some more food for thought: Attached is my understanding/summary of graphical design for ORB trading per Fisher ACD Method for potential AAPL trade today. Good reference book for ORB trades: The Logical Trader - Mark B. Fisher. Please note this is not an investment advise.

  8. Hello Silviu Some food for thought: If I knew in the weekend that I will be trading AAPL and MRNA on Monday morning using ORB trades, before the trade I would do the following based on my Day Trading Plan for ORB trades: 1. Determine trade bias for the market 2. Determine trade bias for the sector 3. Determine trade bias for AAPL and MRNA 4. Determine overall trade bias for each of AAPL and MRNA 5. Mark-up support and resistance levels Per my analysis, trade bias was: AAPL - Bearish MRNA - Bearish This means I will only take short trades for ORB on Monday morning for AAPL and MRNA. Attached are graphical analysis for AAPL and MRNA. However, for AAPL, after market open, I see the trend and momentum are up/bullish, but my bias is for bearish trade, therefore I would not take an ORB trade for AAPL. Also, for MRNA, after market open, I also see that the trend and momentum are up/bullish, and again my trade bias is for bearish trade, therefore I would not take an ORB trade for MRNA. So in short, I would not have taken any ORB trade for AAPL and MRNA last Monday. For me it is a good practice that if the bias analysis for the day based on market alone is bullish, then it would be prudent to look for and take bullish trades, This can be done done ahead of time in a more relaxed manner, ie end of day data analysis for trade next day. Also if I want to trade one or two selected stocks, then I can also do trade bias analysis for the stocks as well. This process favors high probability of success, ie trade with the market. Also, if I do ORB for stock in play in the morning, I would make it 10-min ORB (x2 5-min candles). This gives me time to prepare graphical analysis, calculations and selection from two or more stocks before placing the trade. My suggestion is to get yourself a mentor who can help you to prepare your Day Trading Plan with ORB. Good reference book for ORB trades: The Logical Trader - Mark B. Fisher.

  9. Hello there Attached please find the sample swing trading plan with exhibits and notes per some of my earlier posts. I hope easier to navigate now. Thank you. Sample Swing Trading Plan - Presentation.pdf
  10. Hi there I am sharing a sample swing trading plan for intermediate-term swing trading with a strategy to enter a trade upon breakout from a chart pattern. This is for discussion purposes only. Please feel free to send comments/discussions so our BBT Forum can benefit from same. The sample plan is based on information from instructor training, textbooks, Webinars, other swing trading plans, and information available on the internet over last few years. One good point up front is to keep things simple and this seems to be working for me. This is a sample base Stock Trading Plan that can be detailed to suit individual requirements. In summary, the plan generally consists of: 1. Prepare a Watchlist of stocks with good fundamentals: growth and revenue 2. Fundamental analysis of each stock in the Watchlist 3. Technical Analysis of each stock in the Watchlist: Trend, Trend strength, momentum, and comparison to market, sector, industry and sub-industries 4. Graphical analysis/markup: chart pattern formation, buy point, base top, base bottom, projected target price, projected target time frame, stop loss exit point, partial and final profit exit points 5. Risk Management 6. Miscellaneous routines and discussions Initially the routines seems time consuming but after time it gets better. Please note this is not an investment advice.

Stock Swing Trading Plan - Draft - Sample.pdf
  11. Please note one key component I did not mention earlier is that stocks on my watchlist have to have strong institutional trading. This is also a very important criterion for screening/scanning. Therefore, the shortlist that I have has good growth and has institutional trading. This suggests to me that when when market, sector, industry, sub-industry moves, the stocks on my list will be prime candidate to be leaders, and this will be captured on graphical analysis as price action approaches base top with good volume.
  12. Hi there I will cover the scan/screening and review of watchlists in Sample Trading Plan (to come). However, in one of my submittals I had identified that I use three watchlists. The main/master watchlist is screened for quarterly. Try to keep the list to around 50 or less. I then shortlist this list after reviewing the fundamentals of each stock. This is my working list for the quarter. I try to keep this list to 25 or less, this is more manageable. I review the working list end of each week to select stocks that are in the process of forming a base and the price is moving towards the base top/prospective buy point. I can start preliminary graphical analysis at this time, followed by calculations for reward/risk potentials and selection if have several candidates. Once I have bought the stock I will move it to my current position list for daily review, i.e. trade/position risk management. Yes, before I enter the trade I will look for favorable market and sector conditions via price movement in S&P 500 E-Mini Futures and S&P 500 Index and SPY/QQQ/XLs. This is just a cursory graphical review to see that the stock, sector and market are moving in the same direction. However, because I am swing trading, I am anticipating price move for a short period of time i.e. Rally-Base-Rally, get in and get out fast ....... after the move has started and before retracement. That is why I review the positions daily and even intraday to take advantage of short uptrend moves. In a good move, you can scalp as well intraday or overnight with more that 2% move.....no harm in scaling-out and taking some profit. This also reduces some risk from a pullback and potential no bounce, and a hence stop loss exit. Please remember the current discussion is for intermediate-term swing trading. I use the same watchlist for short-term swing trading as well but the technical/graphical analysis and chart set-up is different. Great to know you are also having fun with swing trading. Food for thought: Design you trade. Trade you design, Keep the trade simple. Take responsibility for your design. Please note this is not an investment advise.

  14. I am sharing an example of a preliminary analysis for swing trading per attachments. Please feel free to send comments and discussions for benefit of out BBT Forum team. The graphical analysis was prepared with drawing tools commonly provided with trading platforms. I have seen questions from our Forum members on what platform to use. The idea is once you have a Trading Plan and know what you need for your trading analysis then you can look for these tools in your platform. So in the end your trading platform is compatible with your Trading Plan, Please note this is not an investment advice. Please seek investment advise from your own investment advisor.

  15. Update: Adding Preliminary graphical analysis for XLU for short-term swing trading. This is an example of a graphical analysis for a short-term swing trading or early entry for intermediate-term swing trading. The idea is that the institutional buyers will be active at the intermediate buy point. We only make profits when we sell, so why not sell when others are buying.
