This strategy requires a good and rapid trading platform.
How to enter the trade
- Set the chart too 1, 3 or 5-minutes intervals.
- When a price surges up, wait until the consolidation period (be patient).
- Don’t chase the stock
- As soon as prices are moving over the high of the consolidation candlesticks, enter the trade.
- The stop loss must be the break below the consolidation periods.
- Sell half of your position and take proit on the way up.
- Bring your stop loss from the low of the consolidation to your entry price (breakeven).
- Sell the remaining positions as soon as your target hits or when the price is losing steam and the sellers are gaining control.
- Do not short a bull flag
- Good traders know that it is risky to enter a trade when the price is increasing significantly. That’s called “chasing the stock”.
- Amateurs jump in or out when stocks begin to run, be carefull.
- Scalpers rarely like to buy during consolidation (during that waiting and holding phase). This usually drop quickly and brutally so it is important to jump in only when there is a confirmation of breakout.
- Waiting for the break out is a way of reducing your risk.
- Scalpers get out quickly.
