THE FIVE OUTCOMES TO A TRADE!
My mentor taught me the first four. Marty Schwartz taught me the fifth one "Stay Neutral". Close the trade at break even if the move you expected did not develop. Losing control of a few trades can break your account, greatly affect your mental state and your ability to make proper decisions.
BE PATIENT, STUDY, PAPER TRADE UNTIL YOU HAVE CONSISTENT PROFITABLE RESULTS
Making money trading is feasible for many but trading is not for everybody.
Take your time to learn, invest in your education time, effort and get the experience needed in various types of markets prior to putting your hard earned money at risk. It is up to you which route you take.
CHANNEL BREAKDOWN Without blackFLAG FTS
Channel break down or channel break up provide awesome trading opportunities. Learning to trade those breaks will make a huge difference in your trading performance. The issue is when and where to enter. You can always guess but if you are wrong and the market bounces against your position, you may end up bailing out at a loss. Also, when guessing your entry point, you do not have a good location for your stop loss. How big of a Stop Loss will you use?
CHANNEL BREAK UP AND BACKTEST
Another important lesson of Trading Channels is the Backtest. Breaks do happen and also, most of the time, they get tested at one point or another. So, one must be prepared to take profits and allow the backtest to occur. You may reenter at a later time. Some traders enter at the break and hold on to the position during the backtest. The backtest may be way deeper than the original entry causing the trader to close the position at a loss to then see price bounce in the original expected direction.
Sometimes the backtest fails to find support and the drop continues. If you placed a stop when the trade was entered, you are then taken out at the maximum loss per your entry. If you failed to place a stop and are not managing the trade, then your loss could be significant.
UNDERSTANDING PRICE ACTION AND CHANNEL DYNAMICS
Study the following charts to get an idea as to how a channel trend is broken, then back tested to then fail and continue in the direction of the initial break down. When trading without blackFLAG FTS, this information is priceless. Learn this, and you will have a chance and making money trading futures. Most of the times, price will revisit the original or close to the original point where the resistance was after the break.
