Volatile Trading Strategy

We will be discussing the two approaches to trading volatile stocks, trending following and buying stocks when they are near support or oversold.

Trend Following Strategy
Trending following is one of the oldest and most popular strategies that many traders use. The main goal of this strategy is to buy high and sell higher. We want to trade stocks on the right side of the trend, or to ride a trend. When buying stocks, the longer term uptrend should be up. When shorting stocks, the longer term uptrend must be down.

The time period is based on your trading style. For example, long term has a different meaning to a day trader than a swing trader. For day traders who get in and out of a trade during intraday, the longer term is the daily stock charts. For swing traders, the longer term is the weekly stock charts that we will utilize. For investor, long term could mean months, if not years.

For our purpose, we will be using swing trading to demonstrate our strategy. Day traders can apply the same strategy on a different time frame.

To determine whether a stock qualifies for our watchlist, we will first check if the stock is in an established uptrend on the weekly stock chart.

For example, the stock COUP is in an uptrend which qualifies for our list of stocks to trade. However, the stock is now trading far above the existing trend line, so we will not chase the stock. A better entry point to buy the stock is to wait until it drops and approaches the trend line or wait until a new trend line is established.



Oversold Trading Strategy
To use the oversold trading strategy, we will be using daily charts instead of weekly. The goal of this strategy is to find stocks that have been beaten down and we try to get into trades that are now trading at a bargain compared to their recent high.

When the general market is down, most stocks will go along with it. We do not want to randomly select a stock to trade. We will to find stocks that are oversold, and is showing signs of recovery based on technical indicators.

DIS is one of stocks that triggers a buy signal back in March after it had been beaten down badly in the months prior to March. The RSI indicator is in the oversold area for a month (RSI below 30).



On 3/19/20, the RSI indicator crossed above 30 which is the first sign of strength that the stock may be recovering. However, we should not based our trade based a single indicator.

On 3/25/20, the MACD indicator made a bullish crossover. Both the RSI and MACD are now showing signal for an entry. This is when we would pull the trigger and enter a long position on the DIS stock.
