Trading Means Anticipation

A successful trader has a systematic way to anticipate the future price action of an asset based on the momentary price constellation.

Not successful traders are reactive and start to enter a happening when it is right at the point where it ends, reverses and takes your money.

If this happens to you and your account balance is telling the truth; consider, if you are not making a change, your results will not change either and you have a high likelihood of losing all you have.

Make a difference:

The following example shows the concept painting opportunities for a swing trader, who only wanted to go long:

How to Stay Engaged in Your Trading

As a trader or investor, you want your money to work for you. Hence, you constantly have to find assets with preferred trade setups on your preferred time frames to trade.

Unfortunately, long-term investors have a big disadvantage over the day trader or swing trader by trading for less return and accepting a higher risk. Check our WebPage post and feature presentation: Learn to Trade it is Never too Late

Here is an overview table, how we keep you engaged as day traders with a 24-hour schedule, where you pick and choose the individual element and time frames:

NeverLossTrading 24-Hour Time Table…click for active links 

Stay Engaged in Trading

It is a challenge for every trader to constantly scan the markets for opportunities:

  • From the about 40, 000 stocks traded in the US, which ones show an institutional initiated price move?
  • Do all stocks provide favorable trade conditions, given their volume, share of institutional holding, bid/ask spread, holding options or not, their P/E ratio or P/C ratio?
  • Which Futures or Forex contracts indicate the desired trade setup and how to trade them best?

New traders at times limit themselves by only trading a couple of assets, but what to do if those do not show a price move, you might miss participating in a chance that arise in gold or crude oil.

Many questions that you have to answer on your own or you decide to rely on a subscription service or trading-system-inherent-market-scanners, which help you to find those opportunities.

There are various subscription services available for:

  • Day Traders: Stocks, Options, ETF’s, Futures, Forex
  • Stock Traders: Stocks for Short-Term Trading, Swing Trading, Long-Term Investments
  • Long-Term Investors: Receive a 1-5 week perspective for, Stocks, Options, Futures, Forex

The choices is yours, but in any case, prepare to have a heat seeking finder, telling you which assets have strong individual price moves to pick them and to trade when they move.

The repots you can obtain vary from simple reports listing symbols to trade to very detailed reports that relate to:

  • Defined entries, exits, stops, returns, options prices and more.
  • Others just list the symbols of interest and you work out the details on your own.

Check for solutions: Learn to Trade it is Never too Late

We hope, we can inspire you to bring up the discipline to follow the steps explained in our publication.

Budget Your Trading Success

Formulate your goals and it is easier to reach them.

A Budget is an estimation of income and expenses over a specified future period of time.

Do you have a budget in place as a trader or private investor, giving you a set of goals compromised by a financial plan and action plan, formulating:

A)   The reasons your goals are believed to be attainable:

85% of all financial markets are dominated by institutional investors. Learn how to spot and follow institutional money moves right from your chart: Our software is painting the pictured for you.

B)   Action steps to be taken for reaching those goals:

Learn to trade at key reference time frames, with focus assets, where it is easier to only trade when the odd are in your favor.

How much can you or do you want to invest or risk in one trade? Get a feel for a potential return on risk and how a financial plan for your trading shall look like for different assets and time periods.

If you have all this in place, you are set and done, if this is not the case, you have two choices: Start from the scratch and build it all up on your own (took us 30 years and 30,000 hours) or experience budget planning as a pre-stage of the NeverLossTrading mentorships:

High Probability Trade Setups

By institutional investors dominating all financial markets, our computers and programs help us to identify price constellations, which lead to a price continuation patterns and we differentiate two major trade patterns:

  • Momentum Trades: Frequent trading for smaller price move increments.
  • Trend Trades: Focusing on following a trend by staying in the trade for a longer period of time.

The first documentations of price constellations, which formulate a pre-stage of a price move, were found in Japanese Candle Stick Patterns: Three white soldiers, harami, Doji constellations.

By our base hypothesis, high probability trade setups are found when a rate of performance above 63% is achieved over a longer set of data and for multiple time frames. When programming and testing candle stick constellations, they lead to a positive expectation but not to the required significant statistical evidence for high probability trade setups and thus did not get considered in our concepts.

The introductory high probability trading concept in the NeverLossTrading series is

By a sequence of two same color candles, a price threshold is formulated and when it is surpassed in the third candle, a high probability setup for a price continuation pattern is reached.

The momentum target for this trade is formulated by the Price Move Approximation, which formulates the expected price move from entry.

The stop is set at the high/low of the trade initiation candle (second same color candle).

The entry price level is the high/low of the trade initiation candle ± 2% of the Price Move Approximation. A trade setup is reached, when this threshold is surpassed in the third candle.

For following a trend move, you stay in the trade by trailing the stop below the low of two candles back or until the second opposite color facing candle occurs.

SPY Daily Chart with Constellations, January – April 2014

SPY Candle Color Price Threshold

The chart shows and measures momentum price developments. In the period between January 15 and April 15, 2014 we had:

  • 6-Winning trades setups (86%).
  • 1-Losing trade setup (14%).

No doubt about it, this is high probability trading.

To support you in finding stocks with two same color candle setups, we developed the NLT Continuation Pattern Alert, where we report those to you at least three times per week. Here is an example of the April 7 report and the stocks that were listed:

TradeColors Win Loss April 7  2014

The concept shows you how to short such market constellations out of IRA or other cash accounts.

For today, April 15, 2014 the following stocks produced a two candle color constellation:

  • SO: Up for $0.56 or 1.3%
  • COP: Up for $1.06 or 1.5%
  • SBAC: Down for $1.94 or2.2%

When produces such high probability trade setups, why would one use a different NeverLossTrading concept?

NLT Top-Line and NLT HF-Concepts have a higher productivity rate by giving you earlier entries and a higher participation rate for trades and thus allow for higher and more frequent returns.

With our current promotion, we first of all give you a $500 discount until the end of April and in addition allow for an easy upgrade to a NeverLossTrading system by discounting the tuition you already paid.

Trading Requires Preparation

In this week’s educational letter, we focus on trade preparation.

Professionals are Prepared – Trading is a Professional Business

A)   Trading Time Table

You trading day opens at 6 p.m. ET (all times mentioned are Eastern Time). Volumes are low at this time; however, there are days, where the market makes an adjustment move in the first 30 minutes after 6 p.m. ET. The next time period to check is: 8:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. After this, the markets usually halter, until they move again around 2:30 a.m. (London Session). All financial markets usually take a rest at 5:30 a.m. and restart at 7 a.m.; with more heavy trading volume until noon. At around 1 p.m. the market participants then decide if they want to confirm the morning direction or not; ending the day at 4:15 p.m., with an extended our session for specific instruments and restarting their day at 6 p.m.

Your second trading time table comes from considering economic news events that pertain to the asset class you are trading: Futures and Forex traders consider an around the clock time table. Find an example at our news section…click here: Major news events are highlighter in red (“High Importance”). The best way to tackle news events as a day trader: Stay out of the market over the event and to re-enter when the market forces found a new directions, which usually takes between 10 to 30 minutes. If you are holding stocks over highly important economic events, stock earnings or news announcements, we recommend protecting against a potential downside risk by adding options.

Stock and option traders usually stick to the US-economic-news, where this weekly calendar gives you a very good overview of the most important events…click here.

B) Prepare for the Assets You want to Trade

There are assets that trade with-, independent from-, and others that trade against the overall market development. This always gives you the opportunity to either go long or short with favorable instruments.

Why does this matter?

Markets or asset prices fall five to eight times faster than they rise and thus short selling strategies should be an essential part of your way of trading.

Trade where markets move: Fish, where the Fish are.

Either Build yourself a scanner, which is in tune with your trade setups or subscribe to a scanning service that provides you with an overview of assets on the move. Sticking strictly to one asset or a limited number of assets, reduces your probability for market participation and compounding interest.

NeverLossTrading Alerts informs you on multiple levels with assets, which showed institutional attention:

C) Approximate the Risk and Minimum Movements to Trade

Calculate the expected price move of an instrument per time unit observed and only trade when the odds are in your favor.

Example: CSCO moves about 11-cents per hour, which is below the minimum price move expectation, we would recommend to trade a stock or option on, even so the stock is highly liquid, exchanging a minimum of 3-million shares per hour. On a daily time frame, the price of the CSCO share moves about $0.33/day and fulfills the minimum requirements for a trade to take.

Win in the average series of trades, where the individual trade matters less than the overall performance in executing your trading plan, striving for continuous improvement with the help of our mentorship programs.

Stock Trading in Times of Ambiguity

What are the key elements of successful financial market investments: Trading?

All successful traders look for patterns in:

  • Price action,
  • Momentum,
  • At times volume.

By observing and comparing those parameters, they predict where the observed price will move to next. Most often, they use a combination of indicators with specific settings and follow a back and forward tested set of rules, telling them when to buy and when to sell.

Hence, they apply a Trading System!

In summary: Every trader is either building and honing a system or buying a “ready to trade” one. There is no doubt about this. Unfortunately, most trading systems are neither well documented nor provide a clear guideline to follow and successfully execute them. This is where NeverLossTrading is making a difference and we want to share some key elements of how you can sponsor your self-development as a trader.

1.    Professionals are Prepared

To cope with uncertainty, preparation on multiple levels is required. Trading is a professional business – every time you invest or trade, you face uncertainty and an institution (market maker) accepts and fills your order. Regardless if you trade part time, occasionally, or frequently, you need to be prepared.

Helping you do so, I set myself down and just publishes a new Kindle Book: YOUR TRADING CAREER AS A PRIVATE INVESTOR” by Thomas Barmann, available at Amazon for a step price of $2.99.

This book shall give you some hints for the base preparation to develop yourself in the trader you want to be.

2.    Trade Preparation at Times of Ambiguity

When markets stop trending and rather go sideways, uncertainty increases and you have two choices:

  • Stay out of the market.
  • Drop down to a lower time frame.

SPY Sideways Range from October 18 to November 8, 2013

Sideways Range of SPY

Helping you to find security with institutional attention at lower time frames, we developed two new tools:

2.1   Pre-Market Mover Reports (Free Report…click here)

At days like last Thursday or Friday of last week, the day-over-day progression was little; however, intraday, we had tremendous opportunities for trading the waves of sub-day-time-frames. Prepared to trade stocks on the move provided fantastic results.

Pre-Market-Mover Trade Opportunity Results for November 7, 2013

November 7. 2013 10-Minute Results

By the SEC regulations, we want to make you aware that past performance cannot be taken indicative for future results.


2.2   The Last Trading Hours Movers Report (NEW)

Institutional investors leave their trace in the second-half of the trading-day by either confirming or reversing the price movements of the morning-session. Hence, we developed a scanning program to identify stocks with NLT-Indicator-Observed-Price-Moves for the afternoon hours and in particular in the last trading hour. Both, the second-half-of-the-day- and the last trading-hour-alert can provide an underlying indication where a stock might start to trade the next day.

See the stocks from the November 8th afternoon session, which show an indication for a potential stronger price move in the upcoming trading session of November 11, 2013.

The US Economy And Outlook Based On Stock Market Earnings Reports

On Monday, April 11, Alcoa Inc. (NYSE: AA) the aluminum producer started out the first quarter reporting with excellent results:

– A first quarter profit of $308 million, or $0.27 per share, from a loss of $201 million, or $0.20 per share, in the year-ago period.

– Income from continuing operations attributable to Alcoa, as adjusted, for the first quarter was $317 million or $0.28 per

– Revenue rose 20% to $5.96 billion from $4.89 billion.

– Analysts, on average, expected the company to report earnings of $0.27 per share on revenue of $6.32 billion.

“It was an excellent first quarter as we improved profitability across all business segments, set profit records in our midstream and downstream businesses and grew substantially,” said Alcoa Chairman and CEO Klaus Kleinfeld.

The outlook Alcoa painted for 2011 and beyond remains very positive due to the world’s growing population, increasing urbanization, and aluminum’s advantages as a light, strong and recyclable material.

What was the reaction of the stock market?

We write this article on purpose prior to the market opening and can say: the market dropped 0.6% in value, measured by the S&P Futures.

Stock market futures are traded basically around the clock and the international markets and those participating, let the price drop rather than buying into it, which would result in higher prices.

We use as a key measure the S&P 500 Emini Futures Contract and postulate: If the overnight price of this futures contract drops by 0.6% the stock market in average will start 0.6% lower into the day.

The S&P 500 as an index represent the 500 biggest US-Shareholder-Companies based on market capitalization.
What is our trading tactic based on this:

– Short term we are rather trade to the downside if we break below a neuralgic price level of 1308 for the S&P Emini contract.

– Long term we are in cash, waiting to get long on a clear signal for a market turn around based on assumed high earnings reports.

What does this mean for the overall economy?

“We see clear signs of recovery and look into a stronger economy for 2011”

Stock Market: What Do Bank Earnings Tell Us?

Banks are the perfect place to show book money:

When the banks built accruals for potential bad loans – earnings went down;

and now Banks release  over-accruals – and earnings go up.

This is basically what we saw in Citigroup today.

Banks show their real attainment in the development in the revenue numbers and this is where Citigroup came short (see our article:

JPM (JP Morgan-Chase-Manhattan) already announced on October 13, 2010 lower revenue numbers, but better earnings. Why is that?  All banks are very restrictive in lending money, they enjoy a beautiful margin by the low fed rates and with that do not need to find new business to show profits: profits come from book money: margins, reserves.

With a restrictive – but for the banks comfortable – lending policy, we will not see bigger growth for the economy in the near term future and with that no release on employment numbers.

Based on the sound profits from all corporations in the 3rd quarter earnings release, we have the following investment policy:

–          Short term we go with the market and trade towards the upside and we are looking to buy into a market retracement we are waiting for.

–          Midterm we get ready for getting short in Banks and our candidate to pick is JPM (we collected a lot of material that indicates a 4th quarter write off from the trading  side of JPM).

Good trading.

Stocks Market: Solid Earnings and Home Builder Confidence Increase

Today, Monday October 18, 2010, the National Association of Home Builders said that its home builder confidence index moved up to 16 in October after last month’s reading of 13. The upward move also defied forecasts for the index to remain at 13. The increase came as market conditions, sales projections and consumer prospects all showed gains.

Further, the Federal Reserve reported that industrial production unexpectedly declined in September. The headline number showed a drop-off of 0.2 percent compared to the 0.2 percent uptick recorded in August. The fall surprised economists who had forecast an increase of 0.2 percent, while the figure also marked the first fall in production after six months of increases. The report also showed that capacity utilization inched down to 74.7 percent in September from 74.8 percent in August. Initial forecasts looked for the figure to remain flat at 74.8 percent.

We continue a slow grinding economic development with high unemployment rates and solid corporate earnings. Just compare to our last quarter report:

Overall the market continues positive based on strong earnings reports:

In earnings news, Citigroup Inc. released third quarter results showing net income of $0.07 per share compared to a loss last year, while edging out estimates for $0.06 per share for the quarter. The firm was able to turn a profit following a significant reduction in provisions for credit losses. Revenues for the quarter came in at $20.74 billion, short of revenue estimates of $21.15 billion for the quarter.

Halliburton Company reported third-quarter net income of $0.60 per share, above EPS estimates for $0.55 for the quarter. Total revenues were $4.67 billion, also beating expectations which called for $4.63 billion for the period.

Hasbro Inc. posted third-quarter net earnings of $1.09 per share, topping projections for $1.04 per share for the quarter. Net revenues rose 3 percent to $1.31 billion, also coming in above estimates which called for $1.29 billion in revenues for the quarter.
