Elements and process for a strong trading strategy


Recommended Posts

Find a strong trend, wait for consolidation /contraction, trade the breakout of strong resistance on increasing volume, apply stop under volume.

A strong trend
indicates that there is strong underlying demand for an asset, such as a stock, currency, or commodity. This can be a good sign for traders who are looking to enter the market and take advantage of the trend.

Consolidation
refers to a period of time where an asset's price is range-bound, or moving within a relatively narrow price range. This can be caused by a lack of supply or demand for the asset, or by traders taking a wait-and-see approach. During consolidation, the asset's price may form higher lows or lower highs, indicating a lack of supply or demand, respectively. Lower volume during consolidation can also be a sign of a lack of supply or demand.

A breakout
is a price move that occurs when the asset's price breaks through a level of resistance or support. This can be a sign of increased demand or supply, and is often accompanied by higher volume. When entering a trade on a breakout, it is important to place a stop loss order at a reasonable level to manage risk.

Volume
is an important factor to consider when trading, as it can provide information about the level of supply and demand for an asset. Higher volume can indicate increased interest in the asset, while lower volume may suggest a lack of interest. It is important to carefully manage risk when trading, and to have a clear understanding of your risk tolerance and risk management strategies.

Risk management
is an important aspect of trading, as it helps traders to minimize losses and protect their capital. There are several strategies and techniques that traders can use to manage risk, including:
Setting stop-loss orders: A stop-loss order is an order that is placed with a broker to sell a security when it reaches a certain price. This helps to limit potential losses by selling the security before it falls further in value.
Using risk-reward ratios: A risk-reward ratio is a measure of the potential reward of a trade compared to the potential risk. By focusing on trades with a high risk-reward ratio, traders can potentially maximize their profits while minimizing their risks.
Using risk management tools: There are various tools and software that traders can use to help manage risk, such as risk calculators and position sizing tools. These tools can help traders to determine the appropriate level of risk to take on for a given trade and to manage their overall risk exposure.

Keeping a trading journal: Keeping a detailed record of all trades, including the reasoning behind each trade, can help traders to learn from their mistakes and improve their risk management strategies over time.

    • The start of China's annual National People's Congress saw a muted response, with the Hang Seng index falling over 2% after Beijing set a modest 5% growth target for 2024 without any major fiscal stimulus measures. However, mainland Chinese shares rose amid suspected state-backed buying of exchange-traded funds tracking the CSI 300 index. Global markets are bracing for an eventful week with Fed Chair Jerome Powell's testimony, the US jobs report, the ECB's policy decision, and the UK budget. Investors are continue to search for cues on the Fed's future rate hike path, with the Atlanta Fed president suggesting no pressure to ease policy amid sticky inflation risks.   
    • Gold Elliott Wave Analysis - is it heading toward 2200? Function - Counter-trend Mode - Corrective Structure - Zigzag Position - Wave 5 of (5) Direction - Upwards for Wave 5 of (5) Gold has exhibited a bullish trend in the current week, surpassing the crucial level of 2100 and inching closer to achieving a new all-time high. By examining the daily chart, we can discern the formation of a promising bullish pattern. The fourth wave denoted as wave (4) in red, concluded at 1616 in October 2022. Subsequently, a bullish diagonal pattern has been unfolding as part of the fifth wave, known as wave (5), which belongs to a higher degree wave 5 in blue. The recent rapid surge in price can be attributed to wave 4 of (5) finding support at the significant level of 2000. As a result, wave 5 of (5) is currently progressing rapidly, and it is highly anticipated to follow a three-wave structure towards the next noteworthy level at 2200, easily surpassing the 2100 threshold. Transitioning to the H4 time frame, our analysis predicts a three-wave subdivision, identified as blue wave a-b-c, for wave 5. Considering the impulsive nature of the upward movement from $1984, we believe that it will ultimately complete the first wave, namely blue wave a. At present, blue wave a is in the process of concluding its third sub-wave, (iii) of a. Subsequently, sub-wave (iv) may retest the key level of 2100 before sub-wave (v) ultimately concludes blue wave a. In summary, based on our analysis, the recommended strategy for traders is to consider buying the dip in Gold at this time. Traders have the option to either trade the conclusion of wave (iv) for (v) of blue wave a on the lower time frame or await the completion of blue wave b at significantly lower prices. Following this, blue wave c of 5 would be expected to propel Gold towards the 2200 mark. This analysis presents potential opportunities for traders to explore strategic entry points and benefit from the bullish momentum of Gold. Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo
