Why do you get “Clipped” in a trade? Here is the reason!

Why do you get “Clipped” in a trade?

Traders basically can have two personalities:  Aggressive vs Conservative  Which one is better?    The answer of why a trader gets “clipped” in a trade is answered by answering this question.

First, what is the different between the two different trader types.     The Conservative has a lot of rules and wants high probability trades.   They are willing to be patient for all the rules to come true. The aggressive trader wants to relax on some of the rules because they aren’t too patient.   They want trades!

In January 2015, we introduced a concept called iMTF, Ichimoku Multiple frame support/resistance.  Below is an email we received Dec 18, 2015 at 12:10pm EST for a 3 time frame MTF.   Price was at the MTF support off the 240m, Daily, and the Weekly.

The email covered two of the three zones i.e. the swing traders and the long term traders.  However, we had to validate if the third zone, the day traders were thinking the say way.     The highest probability trades is when the day traders, swing traders, and the long term trader all have the same …

Taking a look at the 7 and 6 time email alerts for Futures for the week of DEC 25

Coffee 6t ALERT

Typically a 7x and 6x email alert is high probability for a trend to begin. But it can also be a high probability to reverse. I’m using a 3 step trading plan. 1st I find an email alert. 2nd find the major iMTF. 3rd find my stop by using ATR 26/50. Look for 3:1  reward/risk for pullbacks and 1:1 reward risk for break  outs. Lets take a look at this past weeks email alert.

  

    

 

Take these multi time email alerts and look for Ichimoku Multi Time Frame (iMTF) support/resistance  to find low risk pull backs. You can see how important it is to identify the iMTF. So when looking at the email alerts,  the first thing I want to look for is the iMTF. If there is no iMTF then I don’t take the trade. If there is an iMTF,  then I place a trade at that iMTF. If price does not pull back to the iMTF then this means the sentiment is strong and then I place a break out order. Use the chart to give you clues to what price wants to do. Also don’t forget about reversals. If price breaks the iMTF then …

Fed Decision done…Now where do we go before end of the year?

Fed Decision done…Now where do we go before end of the year?    The Fed announcement was last week on a Wednesday.    We posted an article at the beginning of the week (Article) where we showed how all the Global markets were at major support/resistances.   It was key to see where price closed by the end of the week.

The only big news was the US Fed rate decision so MAYBE that was going to be the key announcement that influenced all Global markets.   Either way, we could not determine anything on Wed when the announcement was made because we need to wait for the price to close at the end of the week.     The weekly charts gives the trader the long term project for the market being analyzed.

For the entire year, we have used the CBOE Market Volatility Index to gauge where the US stock markets were going to go on a weekly basis.   We have continuously posted social media articles, blogs, newsletters, etc for our entire thought process on using it.    No other instrument this year has been able to forecast better than the VIX.    We have looked at …
