Mr. Charts started this thread I ran a scan 9 mins after open and saw SPLS and using this method jumped on board for +14c per share.
Exit was when buyers came in.
I wasn't looking for a target gain or being greedy wanting more, just concentrating on getting out if it went against me and letting it run till there was a sign of a potential reversal.
Method, method, method.
Repetitive, repetitive,repetitive.
Profitable, profitable,profitable.
Satisfied,satisfied,satisfied.

All my other set ups work as they always have since I gave up my profession to trade for a living in 2000.

Good trading to you,
Richard
Thx Richard, that's interesting.
Keep up the good work.

Mr. Charts started this thread BBY was on my pre-market alert list due to the news and the huge gap down.

This chart is not ideal, but the tendency was upwards and when it broke to a new high it did so on the rising candle method in this thread. In other words after a weak uptrend it became quite strong. I went long at the point indicated and exited at the time of the screen image for +30c per share.
Stocks do not have to start out strongly, they can become strong as this one did.

The other point is that most people seem very reluctant to buy a gap down stock, or short a gap up stock. They seem to have the false idea (and there are very many myths and misunderstandings in trading which stop people from consistently making money) that if price gaps up strongly it is likely to move up after open, and vice versa. Absolute rubbish, just like that hairy old chestnut that gaps have to close. Anything can happen and usually does.

Hi Richard,
It's been a while since you started a 'serious' trading related thread and this strikes me as being an excellent topic - although some thought might need to be given to the thread title! I'd be very interested to hear your thoughts on this - and others would be too, no doubt.

Go on - you know you want to!

Tim.

Mr. Charts started this thread Hiya Tim,
I'm pretty busy at the moment but will think about it.
Shakone started a similar and excellent thread recently but it never really got going and didn't get the attention it deserved.

Mr. Charts started this thread Here's one from yesterday that failed using this particular method.
If the stock doesn't do as it should do and starts to reverse I simply exit. IMHO one of the vital parts of trading is to keep the losers small.

Mr. Charts started this thread Now here is NSR from today found pre-market as a huge gap down stock.
It was a fast mover !
Another key for me is to make a decision and execute it immediately, no er-ing and argh-ing . That's difficult when you start out, but like with most things you get better and better with practice.
Concentrate on limiting the losers to small amounts and the profits take care of themselves.
+103c per share
