An ideal swing trade



Set up method to scan for these kind of setups. In a year you will find hundreds of these kind of setups. This kind of setups is inherent to how market operates.

Stocks do not move for long period of time but when they move they just walk they sprint. This phenomenon is more pronounced on stocks with established momentum profile. A surge of buy interest in short period of time creates these kind of  powerful momentum bursts.

If you set up a method for finding and trading these kind of setups on daily basis you don't need to worry about the economy, deficit, Ben Bernanke or any other macro thing. If market is in uptrend you will see hundreds of such setups. If market goes in to correction , these kind of setups automatically dry up as number of stocks making positive range expansion drops. At the beginning of new bull move, you will see proliferation of these kind of setups.

Once you establish a scan for these kind of setups, these start showing up as soon as market opens. By first 15 to 30 minutes many stocks breakout. If you enter early you can profit from the move during the day. As the day progresses you will find more and more setups. Some people prefer to buy in last 1 hour of close as that allows them to study and prioritize these setups. Some enter next day. But the ideal entry is as soon as possible. A Stockbee member has done an exhaustive study on this and his studies show entering in first half an hour is best. Earlier the better.

Not every setup you will find works perfectly like CNTY. Here is a recent setup that I traded that did not work out. In the case of ZLC the stock had a breakout, I entered on breakout as it was in my breakout anticipation list for sometime. Stock made 10% plus move after entry, I did not take profit expecting more upside, next day it reversed hard and stopped me out at entry price. But that is part of the game.



In these kind of swing trades you want to put as close a stop as possible. Because the entire logic for buying the setup is that the strong momentum will continue next day or in next 2 days and stock will never revisit the breakout level. If that happens the momentum burst has failed. 


This kind of swing trading setup is just one of the ways to swing trade. There are many other ways to do this also. But the most important thing is to select one good setup like this and perfect it and trade it for extended period of time over 100 or more trades and then you develop expertise in it. Then you can do this blindly day in and day out. Mu 12 year old daughter can do this effortlessly. She started learning this when she was 8 year old. On the members site she has done videos explaining this. Why she can do it is basically this is pretty mechanical stuff once you get a hang of it.


This kind of swing trading is relatively easy to master and offers you thousands of opportunities. You can control your risk very well and don't need to know fundamentals of stocks to trade. You do not need expensive software to trade this. You don't need to subscribe to any service or attend expensive thousands of dollar worth of courses to master this. As long as you are motivated and willing to put in efforts for sustained period of time till you can develop expertise in this, you can learn this no matter your age and sex. Becoming very good at it and controlling risk and developing your mind to not get frustrated by failed trade however for some takes years.
