5 Essential Check List Before You Place a Trade.
These steps are going to form a basic checklist for both Scalpers and Swing traders.
1. The Trend, Your Friend
Before you place you trade the first and most important thing to consider is the trend of the market. The primary trend tells us who is dominant in the market.
There are basically three types of dominant trend which you must take note of before you actually place a trade, these include:
- Uptrends also known as the bullish trend. The uptrend form Higher highs and Higher lows. In a uptrend the buyers are dominant. The price momentum is upward.
- Downtrends also known as the bearish trend. The downtrend forms Lower lows and Lower highs. In a downtrend the sellers are dominant. The price momentum is downward.
- Consolidation: this is also known as a ranging trend. During consolidation no lower low or Higher high are formed. These shows that the buyers and the sellers and indecisive and the price keeps ranging sideways. This is not always a good time to trade..
Being a friend with the trend will make any strategy the best strategy, although this alone is not what you need to be successful.
2. Market Structure: crash and boom indices plays out according to different market Structures.
Finding areas of support and resistance both horizontal and diagonal will give you areas of entry and exit.
Support and resistance are areas of accumulations and and distribution respectively where price bounce off. They provide potential price for entry and exit.
Other market Structures such as double or triple bottom, double or triple top, Head and shoulder, Flag patterns, Divergence are very important to look out for before you place your order. Crash and Boom always respect market Structures.
Allow a well known structure to play out before placing your orders. Whatever structure you are not familiar with avoid it, this is how to stay on top of the game.
- Pullbacks: these are key reversal level where price retest to before price continuation. A trend is made up of Impulsive or corrective trend. The impulsive trend has the power to drive the trend and formed the dominant moves in the market. The corrective trend are the retest non- dominant trend. The corrections forms higher low for a bullish trend and a low high for a bearish trend.
3. Moving Average Crosses
Moving Averages helps you identify support or resistance as well as the current market trend.
Here, I will be recommending the 200 EMA, 10 SMA, 22 EMA.
The 200 EMA serves as Support and Resistance. When the 200 EMA crosses below the candles sticks it indicates an uptrend. When the 200 EMA crosses above the candles sticks it indicates a downtrend. When the 10 SMA and 22 EMA crosses each other depending on the trend of the market it gives us an entry for either a buy or a sell. The MA crosses gives us a close entry when when analyzing with a smaller timeframe and a trend confirmation when analyzing with a higher timeframe.
4. The Loading Strategy
The Loading Strategy is perfect for scalping. There is a little or no draw down using this strategy. The strategy was discovered by a guru Synthetic indices trader, Michael Essien, He calls it Extensive Exhaustion Point (EEP).
The EEP strategy uses RSI 6, on the following levels: 90, 85, 70, 50, 15, and 10. When the RSI oscillator reaches level 90 on 5 minutes timeframe you make an entry for a sell in crash, and when the RSI oscillator gets to level 10, you make your entry for a buy in Boom.
This strategy will make you some good money if you follow the the instructions in the video patiently.
5. Emotional Control.
This is the fundamental part of trading, you will not make money if you can not control your emotions.
- Do not trade if by emotions. Set a daily target for yourself and avoid the market once that target is achieved.
- Do not fight back the market if you made loses or if you had a bad day.
- Do not place a trade because you met the market buying or selling, always allow your strategy to play out before you make place your order.
- Do not be too exited to open risk. Use proper risk management when trading.
