Intraday Trading Strategies
The topic of Intraday Trading Strategies can be expanded upon in many different ways. In this section you will find examples and analysis of charts showing common characteristics that I have seen over and over again throughout many years of trading.
If you are here to find a "Holy Grail" method, for free, I'm sorry but that's not what you'll find.
This website is designed to help you learn from stock trading experiences I have already been through, that I feel may help other traders. I personally feel that reviewing various scenarios enough, will allow someone to be prepared to act when they see them again in the future.
Many of the examples accessed from this page occur frequently, and as such, I will have more than one post about the same topic. This can be used to an advantage as if it has occurred frequently in the past, it may occur and act similarly in the future.
When developing your own Scalping or Day Trading Plan, I hope you find the examples I have given to be helpful. I know that for myself, when I am watching a real time chart I can see patterns and common characteristics occurring in real time before they are completely developed.
I have also found that no matter how many times you see a pattern occurring, it will not always produce the same results. For this reason, learning to Cut Losses Short and the use of proper Position Sizing, is critical to successful trading.
Below you'll find a list of several Intraday Trading Strategies related pages that you'll find on this website. Keep in mind that these are not the only one's available. I am continuously writing about different intraday opportunities as I come across them.
