Swing Trading Examples

Swing Trading
A. Trade in direction of the markets trend - use the SPY index as the gauge of the markets trend
B. Risk reward is 3 to 1 Example: purchase 100 shares of XYZ at 20 with a stop at 19.50. Your exit goal is 3 times the reward, 1.50, at 21.50.Minimal trade management - let the trade play out.
C. Trade in the direction of the stocks trend with 9,20,50 ema trending in the same direction.
D. Setup 1: Entry is off a Buy/Sell Zone on a pullback with ema support. The pullback candle shows intra-day rejection of this Buy/Sell zone in the form of the daily candle forming a wick by the end of the trading day. Stop placed below the low of the wick.
E. Setup 2: Stock gaps up or WRB through a zone and trades away from the 9ema. Wait for stock to trade sideways/consolidate - will look to enter near the bottom of consolidation when the ema's catch up and a daily candle wick occurs within the consolidation. Stop low of the wick or under consolidation.
F. Entry for trades is anywhere between the top of the daily candle wick and the mid point of the daily candle wick. Trades can last a few days to a few weeks. 

ABBV: 2 solid setups off sell zones - Both with Daily Wicks off sell zone's - entry bottom of the wick with stop above High of the candle - trading with the trend

CSCO: solid setup Long off a strong Daily wick that formed a buy zone. Stop below the wick entry was 2 days latter as daily bar shows wick rejecting the buy zone. Trade was a loss that turned into a winner. Losses happen - money management as just one trade.

LVS Swing Long off a buy zone - see strong daily wick on the entry candle off the buy zone that formed 6 days earlier - Note LVS is in a trend - keep the odds in your favor - trade with the trend

CELG: Setup 2 - gaps, sideways consolidation with rejection wicks with 9ema support.
