FIRST, there is actually no predictable pattern or stuff like that. Why? Because price moves by simple trial and error method, nothing less and nothing more. All the bets are tested on real market. And that is why the supports and resistances all over the charts, either intraday or the positional trader's chart. Price actions are not predictable. No pattern is a predictable pattern, no matter what. No technical charts and their signals going to work to meet any reasonable expectations because they all depend on some secret ingredient : predictable pattern. SECOND, stoploss is actually a fixed loss, not something that stops loss. Fixed loss is not the wisest idea at all. THIRD, when i say physics i mean the momentum on the chart. Of course the momentum can take off or die. The beauty is whenever you enter a trade on a fresh momentum it will make an attempt to take off. And then the take off may succeed or die. The dead momentum is mostly above the conventional stoploss. The dead momentum is a signal to exit the trade with minimal or no loss, unlike the fixed loss by stoploss theory. FOURTH, this posting basically is about transformation from dead patterns to live momentum. Sounds more practical? Well, its actually a blend of practicality and art. There is some amount of creative imagination needed to choose your momentum. FIFTH... considering that stock trading is one of the most risky and nasty ruthless business... ROI anything less than 10% per month is not worth it. If someone tell you 2% is a decent one... just kick his ass. This view point gives clue whether we are successful in trading or not. If someone tell you he is a successful trader, ask what is his ROI per month. SIXTH.....LEARN, UNLEARN and RELEARN. And never stop this learning process. "Let go" OR "Be ego". (SEVENTH, if you are psychology savvy... the general trading psychology is... "Trial & Error method or approach") LAST but not least... 99% of traders cannot appreciate this post. That makes me truly Elite. I have no intention to be with the crowd. I will not be surprised if no one likes this post. Any business (including stock trading) demands two aspects : knowledge and creativity.
