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.

Volatility  by NeverLossTrading.png

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.

Rule Based Trading

Your Edge – High Probability Trading

Presenter:  Thomas Barmann

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

Sign up here…click.

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.

Inertia in Trading

Newton’s first law of motion – sometimes referred to as the law of inertia: An object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

nerwtons-las-graphic

Unfortunately, Newton’s law of inertia accounts for many traders and investors, who never progress to the next level; boxed into their own paradigms:

  • I only trade /ES Futures and SPY.
  • I am trading from a 1-minute chart.
  • I am only participating in upside opportunities by trading from an IRA.
  • I am not profitable, but I only trade 3:1 opportunities.

Unfortunately, it is our human nature to repeat behavior patterns; even so they did not lead to the desired results.

When at times, we are telling new students that one definition of insanity is:

“Doing the same over and over and expecting different results”.

When this is said, everybody has a good time and smiles, until realization kicks in:

  • Who is telling you that you can only trade /ES and SPY: Do those prices even move?
  • Why to consider a 1-minute time frame: You are trading in the middle of volatility, with the odds in your disfavor?
  • You can trade both strategies, long or short from any account; you just need to know the applicable trading strategies?
  • How do you know in advance a 3:1 opportunity arises; however, if this worked for you, why do we have a reason to talk?

Did your system invite you recently to the following long opportunities?

SPY Daily NLT Top-Line Chart, November 1 – December 9, 2016

spy-november-1-to-december-9-nlt-top-line

In our mentorships, we teach you the details of how to enter with multiple trading strategies when the spelled out price threshold: Buy > $221.40 for example is surpassed in the candle following the signal candle. Why is that important?

You want to trade confirmed directions, where institutional leaders initiated a move and the market follows. This way you can work with buy-stop and sell-stop orders, allowing you to pre-program your orders without the need for sitting in front of your computer at trade entry and exit.

Take a look at the NeverLossTrading Price Move Model:

Price Move Expectation

How does it look at lower time frames?

SPY 2-Hour NLT Top-Line Chart, November 18 – December 9, 2016

spy-2-hour-chart-november-18-to-december-9-2016

The 2-hour chart displayed five confirmed directional opportunities, four of those lead to the desired result and one to a stop: An 80% attainment rate.

Consider putting an end to your trading inertia:

  • Only those traders that are up for a change have a chance to make money.
  • You need to trade with clear cut rules at system specified entries, exits, and stop or adjustment levels.
  • Understand when and how to appraise the odds of every trade situation and only risk your money when the odds are in your favor.
  • Have a system, follow the system, and act upon multiple time-frames, multiple trading instruments and multiple trading strategies.

The Power of Trading the Right Hour

Based on history, the number twelve has a high importance in human life; however, in the last two centuries we started to focus on the decimal systems and consider that everything works 24/7.

Watch the video…click or read on:

clock-with-trendcatching-chart-and-tb

When you cut your trading day into two hour increments, you divide the day into 12 trading opportunities for six days of trading.

Why six trading days?

The futures and FOREX markets open Sunday and close Friday.

Let us show you a couple of examples how this looks on a chart and later explain why the 2-hour time frame is powerful for you (has to do with signal to noise).

NASDAQ E-Mini Futures on a 2-Hour NLT Trend Catching Chart

nasdaq-futures-trend-catching

The above chart shows 10-trading opportunities in four days, seven winners (70%) and three losses (30%) by just following the signal mechanically: Certainly high probability trading; however, we also teach in our mentorship how to appraise trades situations individually, risking more when the odds are in you favor and allow ourselves to not trade if this is not the case.

In the left upper corner of the chart you see SPU: our measure that defines bar by bar how far a price move most likely reaches after institutional engagement is found. The expected price move distance is marked by a gray dot on the chart.

Further you are getting an indication if you are in a trending environment: blue for up, red for down. To help you entering your bracket order, a target and stop point are expressed bar by bar, with an appraisal of the reward to risk ratio:

Our NeverLossTrading dashboard to simplify your actions.

The bottom study: NLT Balance of Power shows you if Buyers dominate (blue) or Sellers (red), spelling out additional trading opportunities with buy and sell bubbles, that are either confirming the upper chart signals or producing own directional price indications.

Instead of trying to catch the entire price move from the beginning to the end, the NLT Trend Catching system supports you by dissecting trends into price increments, so you can trade multiple times in a directional price move.

How does this work with stocks?

TSLA on a 2-Hour NLT Trend Catching Chart: October 5 – 17

tsla-trend-catchin-october-2016-1

On October 5th, late in the day, we receive a short signal and we are catching a very nice move to the downside, producing a $8 price move. Then we further participate on the second wave of the price breakdown with a signal on October 7th, 2016. In the days of October 10 – 13, we receive no signal confirmation and no trade, to then be active again on October 14th and 17th, to harvest on the breakdown. In total, we are producing five winners out of five potential trades in total a price move of about $18 in nine days:

A 9% return on cash, an 18% return on margin and humongous return on Option trading capital if you follow our specifically developed option trading program.
