I know this question has probably been asked 1000 times, but I want to know when a good time to sell a stock that has risen around 4% off it's recent lows...

The wife has just begun to day trade with oodles of capital, and with real time streaming IRESS data.

What are some of the triggers one should look out for when/if the stock peaks during the day and/or over some days?

Maybe watch for if it fails to go up on good news.
Or, after it has risen, a surge of volume with little further upside price movement (check out some of tech/a threads/posts re VSA for further elaboration on this sort of idea).

A few ideas for day trading and longer targets..

uptrend line break (both daily and one minute charts)

>=70% RSI_14 (both daily and one minute charts) + old support/resistance line often becomes a self fulfilling prophecy target

>=70% RSI_14 (both daily and one minute charts) + close above upper Bollinger Band line often becomes a self fulfilling prophecy target

yesterday's high + 1*average true range

Pivot point analysis mentioned by Tech/a previously http://www.traderslog.com/pivotpointanalysis.htm

Do some google research on "Safety in the Market's" critical pivot points too.

Stocks may pause or reverse at some of these points. But if the strength is there to push through, maybe buy in again on Fibonacci retracement levels.

Good luck, mate.
