What's Your Process?


Recommended Posts

To have a system is very important, you need to know what you are going to do in any eventuality in advance or you will just panic and blunder into mistakes, you will continue to repeat the same mistakes over again unless you plan. This is my trading style and the time frames are in accordance with it, no doubt you will have your own process with your own appropriate time frames.

Just the basics. 12/04/10 (Friday) On Dow.

I've taken away my usual auto support/resistance levels as they have since updated and changed but the daily pivot levels are similar. I used to use Fib levels long ago but a while back I tested Fib levels against strong support/resistance levels with daily pivots and round numbers. The S/R, pivs and round numbers team won easily.

I start with;

1/ Daily chart; (pic 1) shows uptrend continuation with current weak pullback.Yesterday's candle (11/04/19) was a second doji (signalling indecision).

Possible scenarios; Pullback failure and uptrend continuation or price seeks stronger support lower down (not rocket science), ps, do you like my 'this is the top' joke.

2/ H1 chart; (Pic 2).

00:00 - 7am. Price moving above daily pivot (Orange) and is looking for resistance; most likely scenario - move up to test R1, possible alt scenario retest pivot. Plan - look for a pullback to buy on the 5 or 1 min chart on the way up to R1.

3/ M5 chart;  (see pic 3);

A - no pullback in move to R1. Very bullish.

B - weak attempt to pullback at R1. Plan - buy pullback failure with stop below R1.

C - weak attempt to pullback at R2. Plan - bail if move down strengthens.

D - support found, Plan - move stop to support as price moves through R2.

E - weak pullback, support found. Plan -  move stop to support as price moves back up past prior high. 

F - strong push though R3, this could be an exhaustion bar, no matter what I wouldn't want to see that big candle upended, Plan - move stop to below R3 after the test. - Stopped out.

G - support identified and retested at R2, Plan - look for new long entry.

    • Hey @pravid17 I hope you're well.  In the leveraged trading industry there are brokers who don't hedge client's exposure and brokers (like ourselves) who do hedge client's exposure.  In a perfect world the exposure of short clients would net off the trades of long clients however this is not always the case. Our hedging model allows us to take an exposure in the underlying market for the remaining exposure which doesn't offset - This way we don't need to hedge every trade, worry about profits of our clients and results in lower costs for hedging in the underlying market (commissions, interest etc.). So say 60% of IG customer exposure in the ASX was long and 40% of exposure on the ASX was short. The 40% would net each other off but there's a remaining 20% of customers who need to be hedged to cover their positions. We go into the market and hedge this.  We make our money primarily through our spreads and overnight funding  with other fees making up a small proportion of our revenue. I would like to remind also that IG is regulated by several bodies globally, including top-tier regulators like the UK's FCA, Germany's BaFIN, Australia's ASIC - This should be quite reassuring from a dealing execution and transparency perspective.  I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other question 
    • A survey from Reviews.org, which featured 1000 Americans, found that as many as 1 in 4 US subscribers may quit the service in the next year.    Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 23 September 2022  There was an interesting breakdown, but the main reason was affordability. Only 18% said they would move to a cheaper competitor. IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor looks at the numbers. Netflix subscription woes Netflix Inc (All Sessions) could be in for a rough time ahead over the next 12 months if a new survey is anything to go by, which was conducted in the US. Out of the 1,000 adults that took part in this survey undertaken by Reviews.org, around 25% of those that were covered said that they would be cancelling their Netflix subscription within the next 12 months. Now, it says with that 25% of US subscribers to Netflix considering leaving, not to join a competitor, but mostly because of pressures on household bills. This is how it is split: rising cost of subscriptions - 40% inflation - 20% a lack of content - 22% spending more time on the services of others - 18% So you can see, a minority said they were going to other services, such as those provided by Disney Plus or Amazon Prime. The cost of Netflix has risen dramatically this year as its basic plan increased by 11% in January and its other plans by 20% to 25%. Now these were the first price increases for three years, so that itself is relatively new for a lot of subscribers. Netflix share price Let's take a look at the Netflix share price. You can see on the far left hand side of this chart the COVID lows at $290.39. We saw a whacking great increase there of 141% to the top and the record high in Netflix shares back in November 2021. And that was when subscriptions were rising, people were paying more for their services, and it was all humming beautifully. And then all of a sudden people started questioning the numbers of streaming services they were undertaking with some deciding to withdraw from Netflix. All of a sudden the big drops started coming through with profit warnings and sales warnings. We've recently hit a new low of $162.50. Since then there has been a little bit of an increase. We're currently trading at $232.75, but we are down by a margin of 1.75% in today's session, which reflects this news that we could well see a relatively large drop in subscribers for Netflix in the US within the next 12 months.
