Risk Management on A Trade

On Thursday we had shares of Western Digital $WDC on our swing trade idea list. The daily sheet showed that we wanted to “buy above 5804 w stop of 5639, raise the stop quickly once the stock is above 5850.” The trade was explained in much more detail (as always) in the video.

Let’s […]

Election Over, Now What?

Now that the US Presidential election is behind us, it is a good time to review our approach ahead of the event.

Most importantly, here is what we did NOT do:
