The happening, we share with you in this educational newsletter is a situation where stocks in one-day find a strong change in ownership, mostly associated with news announcements. In the following charts, we highlight this happening by a Cyan Volume Bar, which highlights extraordinary high volumes associates with a big price move of the stock.

After recognizing the happening, what are potential trading strategies?

Strategy-1: Trade with the Strong Upside MoveNeverLossTrading Strong Cyan Bar Up Move

This is the easiest strategy to follow. A stock produces positive news, opens higher with extraordinary volume and the price move is followed through by other institutional investors. We then use our genius and trade along with the move.

The target for the trade shall be set at 2-SPU’s (two Speed Units = 2 x the expected daily price move at the cyan volume bar).

Another way to trade this situation is to trail the stop; however, after a 3-SPU-price-move, following the trade initiation candle, there is an 85% chance for a retracement where you might sacrifice already booked profits. Hence, profit taking is the right measure.

Strategy-2: Trade with the Breakout

Even so the stock reported better earnings, the stock price broke down. Our Strategy:

  • Mark the high and low of the breakdown candle
  • Trade along with the price-breakout from the price range defined by the high/low of the breakdown candle.

In case the price breakdown gets followed through, we also trade along with the new price move for 1-SPU or 2-SPU’s.

Strategy-3: Trade Exhaustion on the Top

Cyan Volume Bar Exhaustion Move

The price shows a strong upwards price move and produces what we call a trend exhaustion candle. This candle ends the uptrend, produces new owners, who quickly run away from the stock when prices fall. Our trade strategy again is easy: We trade along with the price move, when it breaks the low of the Cyan Bar Candle.
