How to Trade Trading Stocks

Trade with the trend is a powerful strategy to capture gains and make money in the stock market. Traders enter long positions when they spot stocks that are trending upwards, and exit the position when the trend is broken.

Traders use trend lines to determine whether or not a stock is in an uptrend.

What is an Uptrend
Following figure shows how an uptrend looks like. To form an uptrend, the following conditions must be met.

1. Each time a stock rally must reach a higher point than the preceding high.
2. Each time the stock decline must reach a higher point than the preceding low.
3. It is called higher highs and higher lows.

Traders use trend lines to determine when is a good time to get on a trade. On an uptrend, a trend line is drawn by connecting two or more nearby bottoms or higher lows. A trend that connects more dots is considered stronger than a trend that connects only two dots. The longer the trend, the better it is because the trend would be considered a proven trend.

Trend Following Strategy

Trend following strategy is a powerful strategy that many traders use to trade stocks. One strategy to trade trending stocks is to use multiple time frames and to trade only the stocks with an uptrend in the longer time frame.

For example, if you are swing trader, you will most likely use daily charts. To use the multiple time frame, you would want to check if the stock is in an uptrend on a weekly chart.

For day traders who use intraday charts to find entries, you would use a daily chart to ensure the stock is in an uptrend.

Swing Trade
Let's take a look at a real stock example for swing trading. We will be only trading stocks that are in a longer term uptrend. The weekly chart for AMD is in an uptrend connecting four higher lows which meets our condition of an uptrend.

We will then use the daily chart to find an optimal point for entry, preferably nearing the trend line of the weekly chart with a price point around $45 per share.

Stock to Watch
Let's study the chart of the Microsoft stock. The stock has risen nicely for the past few years and it has shown up on our stocks to watch list constantly. The weekly chart for MSFT is pointing upward so the long term trend looks promising.

However, the stock is near its resistance and it may pull back temporary, so a better buy entry might be to get in when the stock drops to its trend line or after it break its all time all to ride the momentum.

At this point, the best course of action for short term traders is to watch this stock and not take any action. We do not want to chase a stock even though the stock is still trending up, we want to buy and sell at optimal points when our risk and reward ratio is good.

Day Trade
If we were to day trade a stock, we want to check if the daily chart of the stock is in an uptrend. For example, the SHOP is a stock we would day trade with because the it's daily chart shows a long term uptrend. By limiting ourselves with only the stocks that are in an uptrend, we increase our odds of picking a winner than a loser.

Profit Taken
There are a few strategies for profit taking. One is to ride the trend, so we will stay in the trend as long as the stock is still within the trend line on the longer term chart. Another strategy would be to set a percentage target, as soon as you hit your price target, you would sell the stock and move on to the next trade. A third strategy is to sell half of your positions to lock in a profit and then let the other half to ride the trend.

Stop Loss
We should always use a stop loss to protect us in case the trade doesn't work out the way we wanted it to. Since we want to always place our trades near the trend line, we need to set our stop loss a few percentage point below the trend line.

What is a Downtrend
Downtrend is exact the opposite of an uptrend. Many traders use downtrend to short a stock, and some traders use downtrend to pick up bargains.
Following figure shows how a downtrend looks like. To form a downtrend, the following conditions must be met.

1. Each time a stock declines to a low point, it must be lower than the preceding low.
2. Each time it rallies must stops at a lower level than the preceding rally.
3. It is called lower lows and lower highs

On a downtrend, a trend line is drawn by connecting two or more nearby tops or lower highs as shown below. The longer the down trend, the stronger it is the trend.

To short a stock using the trend trading strategy is to go short whenever the stock rallies to the lower high or when it touches the trend line. We also need to have a stop loss to cover our position in case the trade goes against us and goes above the trend line.
