    WEB
    CNU
    AAD

    I took those ones yesterday that I posted in the potential breakouts thread.

    All triggered and negative yesterday. I'm hoping that the market pushes up today.

    I prefer strong bull trends to trade stocks but figured thee may be some small profits to make in the next week or two.

    Hi Pav,

    Did you get more of a feel that our market (even though many had thought we were due for a bit of a bounce) was heading up (short term) because of your FTSE trading and watching the DAX?

    If your thoughts are that our market might be ok for just a week or two, have you or do you move your stop loss to B/E sooner than normal or do you stick to the same routine?

    With this in mind I thought with AAD & CNU moving upward do you make a move on them today to B/E in case this is as far as the market runs or do you give it the same space as normal?

    Thanks Pav .... Debtfree :)

    It's not the initial stages of the trade that will change as much as the ongoing trade management as it moves into profit.

    Stops certainly moved a little now but I'll trade as usual but be more aggressive taking profits if the XAO looks bearish.

    Hey Pav,

    CNU is dual listed on the NZX/ASX exchange and is alot more liquid on the NZX listing which may be of use for anaylsis. Not sure if it's relative to your trading but thought id just let you know.

    All 4 are looking good.

    Interesting to see if 1 or 2 of them takes off.

    CNU doing brilliantly. This is my best.

    IFM doing well.

    WEB looks like a shakeout bar today.

    AAD a very large drop. Possibly a big shakeout bar if it closes near the high but I'm not convinced.

    Have renewed my ASX stocks date for the first time in 9 months!!!! wow.
    The trades I took in December were ones someone ran past me.

    I'm excited to have a look at these again. I love trading stocks.
    The breakout momentum strategy is a good one and I need to get back into the swing (whether I take trades right now again or not).

    The thing I love about this is how low effort it is.
    Scan....select charts I like and put on watchlist.... place setups... move stops each night... simple.
    Unlike futures where you are making decisions at the screen this is much more passive.

    I'll take a look and see if I come across anything and if I do I'll post.

    I'll be watching the XAO market direction closely.


    Some selections.
    1. Speculative. Good setup.
    2. Speculative. Avg. setup.
    3. Micro setup.

    First chart that I posted was this one. Bouncing around a bit. Risky one.

    Interesting one that I took yesterday. It pulled back later in the day.

    Watching a bunch including:
    AGI
    GOR
    SBM
    RSG
    AJX
    SXY
    MNY
    AGF

    Some are better than others.
    Some have some nice accumulation bases which have formed.

    Too much effort to post all the setups and cover up the names on the charts.

    I'll look to contribute more heavily to this thread if things really get interesting in the next week or two.

    Hopefully that will spark some interest.

    This looks great on the weekly. Entry risk (with where I would put the stop) is about 29% on the initial position so sizing would be important but the high volume this week makes it interesting...

    I am very much contemplating running a live stocks portfolio as Tech (with myself) had done a couple of years back.

    I will sit down this evening and work out whether I have the time to maintain this. It will be pretty much what I am trading anyway. The only time consuming part will be posting the charts before each trade as well as updates.

    I am seeing good opportunity in the market and now.

    I will determine my available capital and position sizing.

    I may start a new thread exclusively for that.
