ALL IDEAS FOR WEDNESDAY ARE "C=LIST" DUE TO A LACK OF LOW RISK SETUPS. OUR JOB IS TO LISTEN TO THE MARKET AND RIGHT NOW IT IS TELLING US TO BE DEFENSIVE
0000 : Review of Alpha Trends ideology for new subscribers. Order of Webinars is current trades, new ideas and then questions. Email questions are always answered before any live questions.
0516: New stock ideas. Meaning behind A,B,C list ideas. Define your risk dollar loss amount per trade. With this in mind,
A List=purchase a number of shares to allow for this amount of loss (100%) ,
B List= number of shares to limit loss to 50% of this value, Stock is tradable but setup not quite as good a A List idea.
C List= Stock not set up yet for a lower risk entry. Need more time to set up. Can stalk the trade but it may set up INTRADAY
with an entry. So limit risk accordingly.
Set stops under most relevant prior low of the time frame being used.

3319: When using the VWAP use high,low,open,close and then divide by 4 to determine the VWAP. The shorter the time frame the more accurate the line will be.
3436: How has Brian's strategies morphed throughout the years.
3709: When stock Gaps at the open, you say don't chase the gap. However, if you see a decent setup in the per-market data, make the trade your own.Remember that often morning gaps do not hold.
3900: Base trading of a stock on volatility and setup not the price of a stock. So will trade a 2.00 stock if appropriate.
4007: When to base entry on a VWAP or the breakout. Depends on: Where has the stock come from (how much energy has it just expended getting to where it is), And how to best manage risk.
4113: How to set up multiple accounts?
4228: Very long email. Will defer to later.
4240: DOW trade on 5/27/22.

4500: Do you trade ideas not on the list?
4552: Where to place stops. Does not use PUTS to hedge the position.
4833: No video to explain chart set ups on Think or Swim. Daily analysis DOES NOT use any scanning software.
5003: Counter trend bounces.
5130: $HUM. Good explanation as to how to evaluate a setup of a stock. Where has stock just come from? Where is it likely going to hit resistance? How much room to move?
5313: Using the 15 or the 30 Min TF? Uses them both.
5428: $DOW trade evaluation.
5533: Using Fibonacci levels. Noted on previous video that anything greater than 61.8% is a failure. Seldom uses these levels.
