on the process of doing some tests. just a question although im not sure how it can be answered but will try to ask anyway and appreciate any feedback. unsure how to determine when to enter either a position for the first time or back into a position. should i be looking at the tickets to determine an entry point or is this something that comes with experience and beyond the scope of my knowledge at this point? for example only: lets ABC is trading at 30 and say i buy1000 shares of ABC at 30. i want to exit if ABC is down 1%, so i place a stop. i exit position when ABC hits 29.7 with my stop. now im down 1%. am i now looking at the tickets to determine an entry point for ABC? do i look at volume? chart+trends? this is assuming no major news or announcements on ABC between yesterday's close and today's opening. i dont see much discussion about entry points, but im pretty new here and i apologize if its here somewhere.
