  • YNDX, PRAA Show Value Of Buying Stocks At Low Risk Buy Points

    The best technical pattern to know and trade from in uptrending markets is the Pullback Off Highs pattern.

    Rather than go straight up, stocks will often do the bunny hop dance -- two steps forward, one step back. It's those one steps back to areas of support such as lateral support, the 50-day moving average or an upward trend line that offer you the best opportunities to buy leading stocks at lower risk buy points.

    Both YNDX and PRAA are good illustrations.

    Both issues are in overall uptrends, above the 50-day moving average and have pulled back areas of support as shown by the blue lines. The buy point as a break above the pink consolidation line. Buying them there was your chance to enjoy the ride as both issues start what could be another two steps forward move to at the very least a retest of prior highs.

    In this case, this is exactly what both did and we use lock in our gains! Not bad for 2 days worth of work amounting to $850 in gains for those that know how to trade and profit from Pullback Off Highs set-ups.

  • Why We Locked In Gains On NFLX

    We locked in gains on NFLX today. Why?

    Take a look at the chart below of ESRX:

    Now take a look at NFLX, look familiar?

    Rather than hope NFLX goes up here we took what we know and ran with it. What we know is that we have a 10 point gain or more than $500 in profits. What else we know when we operate from a "Trade What We See " stance is that it has a bear channel here. So we took the money and ran.

  • Profits Come From Preparation

    Success in the market is all about being prepared in advance vs. being a deer in a headlights when the market decides it wants to pullback.

    While the indexes continue to pullback, leading stocks continue to act well and many are pulling back in a constructive manner setting up for low risk entry points:

    As you can see, ACT is quietly consolidating recent gains as it pulls back to lateral support (blue line) and trend channel support (green line). These two areas of support also correspond with the 50-day moving average. The multiple support levels make this trade relatively low risk. Should ACT continue its pullback and then start to move higher, we'll issue a Trade Trigger email alert. The same can be said for the remaining stocks on our watch list that like ACT are pulling back in an orderly manner towards low risk buy points and could trigger a long side trade this week.

    Will you be prepared in advance to profit from buying leading stocks at low risk buy points?

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, but may initiate a long position in ACT over the next 72 hours.
