Quick trade ideas

Recommended Posts

Just a work in progress thread really, for shares where I think a quick 10% or so might be obtainable. Will see if it has mileage, else will ask a mod to scrap it if I cannot keep it going. I wont really be going into much depth, just the share, maybe a chart or two and the levels so we (I) know if it worked or not! No real  in-depth analysis here. Anyone else feel free to add. 

<No recommendations, just ideas to see how they play out>

First two

BUY BARC £1.948 (results imminent)

BUY BATS £42.00 ( daily chart looks favourable)

Nice  - as an FYI you can also easily 'quote' the section you originally posted to make it easy to follow for yourself and others on the Community. Example below. I like your idea :) .

sell crypto / bitcoin. Reversal of recent rally and no real news to pump. SEC recently rejected winklevoss ETF application.

currently 7664 but yes it seems to be bouncing off that trend pretty solidly - so i'd let it run if you can cover losses to maybe 8100 where I would add a stop.

Sold at 7583, now 7320. 

260 points in profit. Taking 10% (as dealing costs are negligible due to percentage value rather than flat commission so meh) and looking to close half of we go down to 6700. Stop moved to break even.

adding this to my message above - couldn't edit. Largest short position taken at the moment. If that changes this could whipsaw...

Market just hit 6700 so closing half (on top of 10% previously closed) for 883 points profit. 

Looking to square and reverse remainder at 5900 however stop on open trade moved to 7000 to 7200 every 50pts with 1/5th of size on each.

Oh yeh meant to update.

Square and reversed the rest at 5900 for 1683 points profit. 

After some research I have no idea where this is heading so closing the square now at 6320 for another 420 points profit. 

Not a bad trade :)

Nevertheless, I shall persevere. ?

Looking at an easy 10% here. So:

24/08/2018

BUY SOM £3.82 (Q2 results on 5th Sept) TGT £4.20

I like the strong candle here ahead of results.

(note this is price in GBP but you need to have a W8-BEN completed to trade as classed as US.. cannot remember why!)

Looking at fever tree. They've hit something stupid like 85 times earnings. Whilst there isn't much growth potential left in my opinion. Granted they have some nice new drinks out in the darker spirits arena trying to target and diversify - but ultimately tonic water still counts to 75% of their revenue which for me is way to much. Plus I saw Schweppes bring out a better priced but premium product the other day (first time I saw it anyway - with a date on it can't remember what they're calling it).

Setting up WO for a sell at 3650.

Oh god @cryptotradergoing against the grain is a tricky one pal hope it works out 

trade sensible now! Long term I’m inclined to agree - but what’s their market saturation looking like? That’s the best to check out growth. 

Side note. Have ya ever had their Madagascan cola and mix with a high quality dark rum? Oh my lord...

game changer

Wondering if we might get a quick trade here Ted Baker (TED)

31/08/2018

BUY TED £22.22 (trading below own historic avergaes and on par with wider market) TGT £33?

TED trading on f/c PE of 15.6, whereas historical average of PE 24.

Q2 results expected 8th October.

STOP under low £20.50, first TGT £26.50, if reached, move stop and target £33..?

Expecting this to resolve by end Dec, with direction known by Q2 results.

weekly, looking like bottomed-out. 200MA @ £26.65 (tgt1)

NOTE: I ALREADY HOLD TED as shown in chart

ted1.thumb.jpeg.035a22ce08db04a5e58470c9d83d3ea3.jpeg

Da **** just happened to bitcoin? Must be a large seller unloading and no fundamental reason for such a sell off. Potential for a reversal on this so bidding small size ✌?

I have mentioned RBG on threads elsewhere (I'll try and dig them out)

There are rumors (well cited) of more merger/takeover talk. Share s up 8% today. No RNS yet but it looks likely.

Last bid was rejected at 203p

Price today 123p

Target 203p+ if rumors prove to be confirmed.

NOTE: I have shares in RBGrbg.thumb.jpeg.ceca8b73e4c295595cc96c40e96d753d.jpeg

edit here are my references to RBG

Possibly nice retracement set-up in the offing, short on ITV?  Overnight order short just below today's low (currently 156.3), initially looking for 142.  Tempted to put the stop tighter than the obvious 164ish for this sort of entry?  Thoughts? 

Note interim XD 25th Oct.

    • Hi everyone,  so, those of you following my FTSE - Daily Trades thread may know, I'm looking for new strategies to tackle the market. Was starting to think about this today and made a few thoughts. First one I came up with in the process is the following and utilises 'Andrew's Pitchfork' a rather odd name for a simple principle.   Thought Process I was going back to the basics and starting to think about the fundamentals of trading: Buy low and sell high. Or go short high, and buy back low later. So the key of my new strategy has to somewhat depended on these fundamental trading principles. Next I was thinking, looking at a chart, in what region can the price considered to be "low" and in what region would I consider it to be "high". I was looking at a 5min chart and looking at the whole day. I was drawing one line at the low of day, one line at the high of day, those are obviously the extremes where everyone can agree prices are low / high. Then I draw a line right in the middle between the two, where the price is neither high nor low. Then I draw a line at 25% and one at 75% and said, if the price is between the low of day (0%) and 25%, I consider the price to be low. If the price is between 75% and high of day (100%) I consider the price to be high. In between (25%-75%), it's neither high nor low. If I'd somehow manage to always buy in the low range and sell in the high range (or go short vice versa), then this could be a decent strategy. The next problem I was facing is, I've done this analysis on the previous day, where we know high and low of day. How can this strategy work out for future price movements, where high and low of day are unknown. Andrew's Pitchfork This is where the Pitchfork comes in. The assumption I'm making is that if I extrapolate the 4 required levels (low of day, high of day, 25% and 75%) from the previous day to the following day, the strategy still works. This is because more often than not, prices move up and down around a certain level, without breaking away from it and moving onto the next level. (This obviously has to be proven with data - more to that later) The way the pitchfork works is exactly how the 4 required levels are drawn up. The pitchfork is defined over 3 points: High, Low and Mid-point. It then draws 5 levels on the chart: High (100%), 75%, Mid (50%), 25%, Low (0%) So how does it work The way I imagine it to work is the following: 1) Identify previous day's high and low 2) Draw the pitchfork in the chart with aligning its high and lows on the daily high and low. The mid point is exactly in the middle of daily high and low. This draws a horizontal pitchfork in the chart. 3) When the price of the asset falls below 25%, place a buy stop order at the 25% level. Once the price rises again and breaks through that level, the order gets executed. (vice versa with shorting above the 75% level) 4) Stop Loss is right below (size of the spread) the low of the pitchfork. Target is somewhere above 50%-75%. You have at least a 1:1 risk-to-reward ratio. Need to calculate target level by asset based on historic patterns. Does it work? Don't know yet. So far I've manually painted a few of those pitchforks in the chart for the past couple of days on FTSE100, NASDAQ, CL and NG and it seems it works more often than it doesn't. Cases where it clearly doesn't work is when there's a strong move to either direction, aka price breaks-out and moves to a different level than it was the day before. Interestingly when this happens, the strategy wouldn't necessarily always result in a loss, but sometimes the entry conditions would never be triggered in the first place. E.g. if we start the day already in the high region (above 75%) and then never fall below it - no order triggered on that day. On the negative side, huge breakout opportunities are missed with this strategy, so worth looking into a complementary strategy which works specifically for break-outs. Next steps Next, I'm trying to backtest the strategy. Will need to pull a whole lot of data and analyse. Hope to have that done over the weekend. Will update the thread accordingly. Data I'm trying to get: Win ratio, Where's the optimum take profit level, Time of day where this usually plays out (my idea is to hook this in with the ATR analysis I've done and trade this pattern at times of high ATR, aka FTSE, DAX in the morning, NASDAQ, NG, CL in the afternoon)  First success First successful example trade taken this afternoon on CL. You see nicely how the pitchfork is drawn on the chart and is derived by the high and low of the previous day. At 14.30 today the price dipped below the 25% level. I set the buy stop order at the 25% level, which got triggered at 14.35. The price afterwards makes a sweep move up to the 50% level, where my limit sell order gets triggered at 15.15. It would've been possible to play it up until the 75% level, but wanted to be safe, without having the data yet. Could've been luck - who knows.   What do you think of this approach?        
    • just to add to bigdeal's reply SBs can be either cash/daily funded bet or futures/forward which have a separate chart accessed from the dropdown box next to the chart title. for cash/dfb there is no expiry but you paid an overnight interest fee, this charge does not apply to futures/forwards which have a larger spread instead. see pic.
