@iJasonR you'll find that various sources can have different dates, times, or not even listed. That's why you should always check mulitple sources.

@Palmer How do you go about getting this list? Is there a scanner that you use?

@jfavila03 I scan for increasing volume but the key to swing trading is the daily chart setup. If its looking to break resistance especially with news. Ill ride it for a few days to see how it goes. My day trades have been on point but swings are tricky in these markets

Nice post but we removed links to outside profiles as remember I received several complaints about you in the past

Great post and it got me thinking. Maybe the best way is to make a "real" watchlist during the premarket? That way you can see what is currently "in play" and also check for news/daily chart/hype whatever but at least you know it's doing something since it's active premarket.

When trading /ES using Ichi, do you use trailing stops? If so, how do you calculate them?

Personally I don't use trailing stops. I do use OCO order. I only tried one contract so on in OCO order I have a stop and a profit target. If you want to use a trailing stop it probably should depend on if your swing trading day trading or what you want to do personally.

@cwood by best looking charts, do you mean highest upside potential? and how do you search for earnings winners? videos aren't too descriptive

@PhilipHegarty7 best looking chart would depend on your strategy. In my case i look at support and resistance. Both intraday and daily in comparison to the closing price. Since I am long biased i look to see that price closed near high of day with strong volume. If the closing price is too far from the high it doesnt make my list because it may take a while to form another breakout.

@PhilipHegarty7 By best looking charts, I mean the charts that fit proven price patterns. I have posted a lot of repeating earnings winner patterns on here. I use a website dedicated to low priced earnings winners. Send me a direct message if interested, can't post external links on profit.ly anymore.

Ha! My broker trades and I asked him the same thing this morning. As for me I do allnof the above. I read book after book. Ive watched hundreds of hours of you tube videos. Several Sykes videos. I read blogs. I do google searches for other setups. I only use one setup that seems to work for me. But it never hurts to learn another

@AirplaneJane I'm reading up on trading futures. What I'm struggling to understand is what happens when the contract expires and it's time to settle? If I buy 1 contract for the Emini S&P, will I be required to to fulfill the terms of the contract? Excuse me for sounding naive.

jfavila03 Jul 05, 16 11:57 PM

Yes it does. Thank you both. I wouldnt want to be in the hook to perform on the contract.

Im also wondering about profit/loss per contract. The emini s&p has a value of $50 for every point. If I go long 1 contract and the price goes up 1 full point, my total profit would only be $50? Or is there more that I am missing?

TraderDunn
TraderDunn Jul 07, 16 6:09 PM

Yes your profit would be 50 dollars. If it goes up 10 points 500$. And he is right you would have you exit your position. I didnt know if the link helped you out or not

IF you trade oil /CL or Gold /GC these are the big contracts. There are mini contracts of these too.

@TraderDunn When trading futures, what happens on the settlement date of the contract? Are you then required to act upon the contract you are holding? So if you bought 1contract for the Emini S&P future, would you be required to buy the entire value of the contract?

And how I search to find my stock , I go too finviz.com and go to the screener and I look for 52 week high, it help me because normally when a stock is making is new high or his new low , it's because the stock has a big or downtrend moove and that's what you want to look for.

@AirplaneJane Can you give me some advice on entries on swing trades? When it comes time for me to buy, i end up getting stopped out before the end of day. Meanwhile my picks end up reaching my profit levels over the next few days. I'll use the 5 min chart to time my entries. Im thinking perhaps moving to a higher time frame to help recognize the trend better. I try and go for a 2:1 profit to loss ratio. Im still paper trading my swings. Any advice would help. Thanks in advance. Jay

Jay definitely use a daily chart over a year period to help you see support levels if you are going long. I think for swinging it is important to see the big picture because the longer term holders are looking at longer term support and resistance as well.

@Willthetrader i do take float into account. I tend to look at daily gainers, PM gainers, 52 wek high. All with a news catalyst. I also look at Ichimoku breakouts.
