does selling count as a trade in the 3+ trade system


HarryJ

Question

Hi, to avoid the £10 charge per trade on US stocks, 3+ trades are needed to be placed each month. Does a sell count as a trade? i.e. I could buy 2 stocks, sell another and it would count? And can you buy and sell the same stock in the same month, and if so would that count as 2 trades?

Very basic question, but want to be 100% sure. 

Thanks

    • Yeah I can see that - from experience if the 50% level is going to work it'll go through in 1-3 attempts at most which means you can afford a tight stop, but you can use the swing low point, whatever suits you
    • I guess i do it because i see the low point as relative safety and assume the market won't go through it, but this can make the distance from my entry to the low point quite large and hence potential R smaller.  I'll take a look back to see how a % of ATR might have faired. cheers
