Trading and Investing in Times of Volatility

Since the beginning of 2018, the US-stock market gives traders and investors a challenge that was not present for a long time: increasing volatility.

There are different ways of expressing volatility: Commonly the VIX (CBOE Market Volatility Index) is taken as the volatility measure; however, besides a short spark in February, the VIX still dwells below 20, which is considered low volatility.

On the other hand, we do not need to rely on what the index says to understand if volatility increased or not. Just take a monthly chart and look at the size candles of the core stock market index, then you see what is happening:

NLT TrendCatching Chart for SPX (S&P 500 Index), October 2016 to April 2018

SPX Monthly Chart April 2018.png

The chart shows you multiple buy signals along the up move until the S&P 500 reached its high in January 2018. In March of 2018, a first sell signal occurred.

How to read the NeverLossTrading Trend Catching Chart:

  • With the NLT system, you trade or invest when the formulated price threshold is surpassed in the price-move of the next candle: Buy>$2519.40 was indicated end of September 2017 and confirmed in October 2017, leading to going long in the index and we closed the position when the price reached the gray target dot at $2590.40; concluding a 71-point price move. End of November 2017, another price threshold was formulated and confirmed in the next candle and came to target. The last buy signal on the chart: Buy>$2877.90 was final and no more confirmed.
  • By the change in color, a momentum change came on the chart, resulting in a first sell signal: Sell<$2585.90.
  • The bottom study: NeverLossTrading Balance of Power Indicator, tells you in blue that buyers were in command (blue bars), until in February 2018, when sellers were more dominant.

All NLT charts auto-adjust and signal directional trading opportunities, regardless of the asset or time frame you choose.

Back to volatility:

When you look at the size of the 2018 monthly candles, you recognize that they are significantly bigger (top-to-bottom) than all the candles we have seen in the prior months: telling you that volatility increased, and as a trader or investor, you better have strategies on hand to deal with times of higher volatility.

Why do we make this point?

In times of higher volatility, when keeping the same risk tolerance, your risk of getting stopped out in your trades increases; thus you need new trading strategies to cope with the new risk gauge to bring your trades to target.

When trading or investing, we make assumptions, predicting potential directional price moves, while we cannot influence if the price gets to our target; however, we can control the risk by the trading strategy we apply: Meaning, if you prior operated with a 2% stop, in times of volatility, a 5% stop might be needed to follow the predominant price move.

If the increased volatility brings you outside of your risk tolerance, you have multiple choices to still trade and invest:

  • Decrease your position size.
  • Reduce the time frame you base your trading decisions on.
  • Choose option strategies that allow a limited-risk and directional reward opportunity.
  • Change to trading strategies that function best at times of volatility.

The last point might be a bit ambiguous, so let us throw an example.

E-Mini S&P 500 Futures Index on 4/13/2018 with NLT Top-Line and TrendCatching Signals

ES April 13 Ranges

Each price move captured on the chart resulted in a $250 gain/risk based on one futures contract. Just add up the realized directional opportunities of one trading day and you see; how a change in trading strategies can accelerate your opportunities to participate in directional price moves of the underlying multiple times a day.

This is where we come into play and help you to have the trading strategies, systems, and systematics on hand to cope with every trade environment.

IRA Trading and Investing

What do you do with your retirement money?

Experience what is needed by reading on or by watching the video…click.

Most leave it up to a funds provider to manage their financial future.

The performance measure for fund managers is to meet as close as possible one of the key index measures:

  • Large Cap: DOW or S&P 500
  • Small Cap: Russell 2000

The past two years provided strong overall stock market growth, but what will you do if the performance measure points sideways or down?

Thinking Money Introduction to NeverLossTrading

Then, you will not meet your expected returns and the planned time to reach retirement; or the lifestyle you had planned for is not the same.

Take your financial future into your own hands and learn how to trade or invest!

The difference between trading and investing is only the perspective of how long you expect to hold a position in an asset: Stock, Options, Future, and FOREX.

The system (knowledge), attitude, and behavior needed to produce success is the same!

With the right knowledge, attitude, and behavior, you can make money and reach your investment goals regardless of the markets are going up, down, or move sideways.

Creating trading and investing success is not based on a single decision, it is based on:

Take your financial future into your own hands and trade the markets based on modern algorithms that spell out trading and investing opportunities by following institutional money moves. Analyze the markets in seconds and trade or invest in what you see!

Ford Motor Company 1/16/2018 to 2/16/2018, Daily NeverLossTrading Chart

F Daily Chart

The chart spells out clear directional trading opportunities and trading targets to be reached after a specific period of time, with clear-cut entry conditions: Sell < $12.10; Sell< $11.11.

When the price-move of the next candle reaches the desired price threshold, you go short in the asset.

Wait a moment; you cannot do such in an IRA!

Yes, you can make money when the price of an asset goes down; you just need the knowledge of how to legally and in compliance with the IRA rules, you can participate in such price moves.

Imagine you were able to realize a price drop in less than a month, giving you a 15% return: as you see it on the above chart: This is more than the DOW grew in 12-months in 2016.

When you can imagine this, and then think about the opportunity to leverage your trading success and limiting your overall risk.

How does that sound?

We deliver the system, knowledge, and training needed to get you there. NeverLossTrading is in the trader and investor education business since 2008 and we are open to work with you and teach you in one-on-one sessions at your best available days and times, what is needed to turn yourself into the trader or investor you want to be.

In case you like to invest/trade by a longer-term perspective:

The entry conditions of the NLT-signals were met in the next price candle and came to target, letting you harvest and overall a 22% return in four months; which is about what the DOW grew in 2017 in twelve months.

We are here to teach you and let the chart tell when to buy or sell!

In addition, you will learn multiple trading strategies and how to repair a trade when it goes wrong; which gave us our name: Never Stop Loss Trading, but we shortened it a little.

What it takes to be a Trader or Investor

If you want to know what is needed to turn you into the trader or investor you want to be, listen well and read the following documentation.

At times, we play a high probability game, where we let people bet on a draw of marbles from a bag. In a bag of 20 marbles and we put marble back after the draw, keeping the same ratio:

  • 13 green marbles that win.
  • 7 red marbles that lose.

Thus, you have a high chance of winning; however, watch the video or read on to experience what happened in reality.

Bag of Marbles Intro

The shocking results:

Starting out with a paper money account, after 20 games, 60% of the people had less money than they started out with; 30% in average even went broke.

Statistically, how many people should have made more money than they started out with?

To answer this, we rely on the Bernoulli-Experiment, which gives us after 20 draws an expectation that 87.8% of the participants, using a 65%-probability to win, should have made more money than they started out with.

Why did this not happen?

Making money requires risk management (appropriate risk per trade), money management (position sizing) and more. If you do not have those skills in your repertoire, you most probably end up not having a chance to produce the returns that you expect.

However, the financial markets do not offer you easy and equal opportunities. The pros are prepared to take your money.

When you trade or invest, the ones who accept your trade are prepared to win; minimizing your chances for positive results. Institutions dominate the game and when you want to enter into a professional business, you better be prepared.

This is where we can help you to turn yourself into the trader or investor you want to be.

We provide you with high probability trading systems: ≥65% likelihood to project strong directional price moves, with the required training and coaching to let you act as mechanical as possible, playing par-to-par with the pros, with the odds in your favor.

Let us pull up a chart and see if you would be able to follow those signals:

E-Mini S&P 500 Futures, February 2, 2018, 20-Minute Chart

ES 20 Minute Chart for February 2, 2018

One of our key slogans is: Let the chart tell when to buy or sell!

Do you use a system and does it provide you with the same (clear cut entries, exits, and stops)?

When you learn to trade and invest the NeverLossTrading way, you get this:

  • Follow high probability trade setups to the up and downside, with pre-defined entries, exits, and stops or price adjustment levels.
  • Learn one-on-one at your best available days and times.
  • Apply a business plan for trading success:
    • Financial plan: Expected return based on the number of trades or investments per time-unit.
    • Action plan: How to prepare for your trades to conveniently even act when conditions are met; without the need of being in front of your computer at entry or exit.
  • Getting all signals, scanners and more installed into a free real-time database.
  • Make risk management and money management a daily action, preventing drawdowns and appropriate risk acceptance.
  • Apply multiple trading strategies based on the actual setup…and more (see below).

Does that only work for day trading?

Absolutely not: Our systems identify price move potentials at:

  • Pre-stages of a price move.
  • Initiation stages.
  • Continuation stages.

AAPL January 1 - February 2, 2018

However, the system alone does not necessarily get you to where you want to be, and this is where we help you, with one-on-one training and coaching.

We hope you see now that many gears have to cut into each other to give you the chance to take money from the financial market’s long-term.

In a short summary: Answer for yourself if you already have everything in place, starting with a high probability trading system: Probability to predict future price moves with a higher than 65% likelihood, considering the following:

Overview of what it takes to be a Trader or Investor

System and Trading Strategies

Now that you see what it takes, the question is: Are you able to create this on your own or do you rather trust into a primer education provider (we are in business since 2008), who can help you to shorten your fairway to success: It took us more than 10,000 hours and more than 30 years of experience in putting it all together.

In case you do rather want to buy and hold positions, we can help you too. Take a look at the following chart:

How to Decide When to Trade or Invest

Is fundamental analysis the basis of your decision making? Are you in the position to outsmart the world’s best analysts, working for companies like Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, J.P. Morgan (just to name a few)? Let us be casual, you are most likely not!

As a result, technical analysis is the logical choice.

At this point, we immediately want to bridge over:

Imagine, one of this big institutional investment firms starts an action to collect or distribute an asset. In this case, other asset holders and market participants will recognize the action and either trade with or against what they notice. If you had an indication on hand, that such situation is there, you would be in the position to observe if specific price thresholds are surpassed to trade with a developing directional price move.

Click here to watch the video…click.

Rule Based Trading

This is exactly what we do with the NeverLossTrading concepts. We do not squeeze the real market action into a mathematical formula like moving averages; we measure the action of now and formulate resulting price moves for all asset classes and time-frames and only act:

  • When the directional price move is confirmed.
  • When the odds are in our favor.
  • At pre-formulated entry-, exit, and stop levels.
  • With a plan-B, in case the trade goes wrong.
  • For a pre-formulated maximum time period.

With such system on hand, your chart is telling you, where the momentum and the trend are going and you can act by our key slogan:

Trade What You See! Let the chart tell when to buy or sell.

Chart-1: AAPL Weekly NLT Trend Catching Chart July/August 2017

Reward Risk Time on AAPL Weekly Chart

Chart-1 shows a long-setup at the candle that closed on July 21, 2017 with the following components:

  • Buy>$151.74, if next week’s price development surpasses this threshold.
  • Stop or trade repair (plan-B), if the price drops to $147.20.
  • Exit at target of $157.07 or after three bars (in the example: three weeks).
  • Reward/Risk: 1.3-time the reward to risk (favorable – odds in your favor).

How did we come to predict such price moves?

Prior to a price change, we measure the underlying change in supply and demand and from there:

  • We extrapolate a price point to enter into a directional trade (buy-stop or sell-stop order).
  • Our system pre-formulates the exit point: target.
  • In addition, a stop or trade adjustment level is pre-formulated at entry.

Bringing those components together, we focus on high probability trading with attainment rates >65%, together with the imperative to apply a time-based exit: closing the trade if the expected price target is not reached after 3-bars.

You might say: That sounds like tape-reading and in a way, it is; however, with the most advanced algorithms, real-time data, server technology and vector graphics. A single person could never replicate what our computers can do.

Even so, we specify trading as mechanical as possible; we value the human element:

  • By teaching you pattern recognition and quick observation of key supply and demand levels on the chart.
  • By always trading with a plan-B, allowing you to repair trades instead of taking a stop-loss.

Thus, you are applying algorithmic trading with human interaction: a strong combination.

By teaching one-on-one and by providing longer-term coaching, we focus on your individual wants and needs; helping you to turn yourself into the trader or investor you want to be.

Chart-2: AAPL 30-Minute NLT Top-Line Chart August 14 – 17, 2017

AAPL 30 Minute NLT Top-Line Chart for August 14 2017

Chart-2 shows, how to trade short-term price developments with a two-tier target setting (the system works the same way for longer-term trades). Aside from placing the stop at the base of the red-line at entry, you can also trail your stop by following the red line, participating in the price-move from the beginning to the end.

To keep this short: If you like to trade long-term or short-term price moves, we can provide you with the system and algorithm that supports your trading style.

We tune our systems, training time and coaching, to fit your individual wants and needs; helping you to turn yourself into the trader or investor, you want to be.

We offer several systems and always teach one-on-one. We are in business since 2008 and dedicate our knowledge, passion and time to those we commit to. If you like to be one of the NeverLossTraders, call us or schedule an individual demonstration at:

+1 800 866 455 4520 or contact@NeverLossTrading.com

When we work together, it is not only that you learn to read charts by our indicators and patterns, you will experience the following:

  • A business plan for trading success: Financial plan (which return to expect at your best available time) and an action plan (what to do when and how).
  • How to repair trades that go wrong, with the potential to turn losers into winners (this is where our name came from; however, Never Stop Loss Trading was lengthy).
  • How to hedge and leverage your holdings, making the additional income you deserve and prevent draw downs.
  • Trading or investing with multiple strategies and only when the odds are in your favor.
  • Option trading strategies, capturing risk and escalating returns at all asset classes.
  • Clear cut trading plan, with chart-based entries, exits, stop or adjustment levels.
  • Learning at your best available days and times.
  • Coaching until you get independent and free.
  • High probability trading at or above 65% probability for success.
  • Clear cut documentations for every system and trade setup (NLT Tutorials).
  • Recorded learning session for an easy repeat on any device until the learned sits.

This and more is what you find in the NeverLossTrading mentorships.

Your Edge – High Probability Trading

Presenter:  Thomas Barmann

Date/Time: Thursday, June 8, 4:30-5:30pm EDT

By sharing proprietary content, there will not be a recording.

Description:

If you can estimate how a far a price move will reach and why – and you put this in relation to where to place a key action stop that considers the statistical volatility of the observed asset, identifying a price level where it will be a pain for institutional investors to get the price, then you can develop an edge for trading the financial markets by trading with the odds in your favor.

Successful trading is based on finding and following repetitive supply- and demand patterns: The price change you see is a result, not a variable and hat we want to demonstrate, is how you can find and participate in directional price changes before they happen.

Prediction connects the subjective and the objective reality: This means, you can test what we show you in the real world: For you to compare how well you predict trade entries and exits today and how, what is shared with you, might make a change for your trading future.
