How and When to Buy a Deep Market Correction, Part II:

In How and When To Buy a Deep Market Correction Part I. I showed a simple and objective balanced swing technique to find a Change in Behavior (CIB) in the deep pullback. In this lesson, we ground the teaching by doing step-by-step practice in stocks, currencies, futures, and Bitcoin. We finish with lining up live examples in some weekly stocks.
Practicing this simple technique will teach you to follow a deep pullback rather than trying to predict it. Make your own observations and discoveries about ways Change In Behavior can be applied.

Design Your Own Trading Methods: Part 3

Design Your Own trading part 1 was about understanding the swing cycle and its process. Part 2 was learning some definitions and making some distinctions so we can map. In Part 3 we explore the 3 basic ways there are to trade, range trading, breakout trading, and swing trading. When talking about methods or setups, it’s important to approach the subject in an effective manner. No setup works in a vacuum and no setup has statistical probabilities. The only edge you have is your understanding of the market at the time of the setup. This understanding comes from learning the language of price and being able to map your market and the personal experience you develop from this frame of reference.

Simple Swing Trading-Part 3

In Simple Swing Trading Part 2, we took our swing and placed it into several contexts. In this video, we learn ways to follow the market with a single CIB (Change In Behavior) line in the pullback phase. We allow price flow to tell us where the buyers or sellers are and when that changes so we can manage risk. This is much different from the nervous experience of trying to predict where a swing should land. One of the things I try to get across in this video is the uncomplicated nature of following (as opposed to leading) price flow.

Structuring A Trade Plan

In recent live sessions, we have been going over how and why to structure a trade plan so that we are not making ineffective emotional decisions on the fly while under pressure. In this video, I demonstrate making a precise trade plan on SAP. Use this example as a guide to designing your own trade plan where you:

Know our method and design precise rules for:

  • Entry: Know what gets you in
  • Initial stop: know where your stop goes
  • Money management: Know your position size and trade management after in trade
  • Exit: know what gets you out

Simple Swing Trading-Part 2

In Simple Swing Trading part One, I went over the components of a swing and described what simple swing trading is. In this video, were going to take our swing and learn how to see it in two different contexts that will produce the swing. The first will be the first pullback after a breakout of a range. The second will be a balanced reaction leg. In both, we wait for a pullback and a swap of price as a confirmation. I talk about confirmation parts of the swing in “Learning To Read Price Action Part 3″ and” Left and Right Side of a Pivot Entry”.
