    Short term share trading, ranging markets

    does anyone trade shares (short term, end of day) in horizontal (ranging) markets successfully? bedford (author) reckons one could opt to not trade them when the market is going sideways while Hull suggests his 'breakout' method. I'm guessing it's harder to make profits during these times, or...

    Short term snap back trade

    A tactic I've used for a few years, I did not invent it but I have added my own twist to it. Accuracy is so-so but gives great risk to reward ratios. Trades the short term move on end of day bars. Counter swing trade for those brave enough to jump in on it. Not easy when you are going long very...

    Avoiding capital raisings in short term trading

    I've had a few too many this year where I get caught with the unexpected capital raising, resulting in a sudden decline in share price while the instos get their fill of cheap shares. Can someone suggest a way of filtering out possible cap raising candidates? I don't want to have to trawl...
