Please Note: These are short-term trade ideas that we normally close in a day or two. Some of the trades are held longer based upon the price action. If there is abnormal price action then act accordingly to either lock-in the profit or limit the loss. We do send out alerts if there is any abnormal price action. Remember to check this site for alerts and further updates.
  • We usually avoid taking a position if there is big gap-up or gap-down.
  • If there is a gap-up or gap-down then if in the first half hour there is a snap-back or pull-back to our original entry then we take that unless the price ran away too much and then snapped-back or pulled-back
  • If there is no snap-back or pull-back in the first thirty minute then we wait for the ORB (Opening Range Break - a break above or below the first thirty minute candle - in the original trade direction
  • If the entry is based upon the ORB then the stop is usually beyond the other end of the bar.
  • Remember to position size based upon your risk-tolerance
