Spot on – Plan your trade and trade your plan

“Picking the sweet spot” was the headline of our last chartbook. A sweet pick it was ; we truly called it this time, all the way to the shape of the candle stick that would provide the formation building bar. A bullish doji in this case. We don’t mean to boast our skills here, far from it. For a trader it is important to be humble and stay emotionally neutral, not to say a bit of padding ones back can’t be useful for maintaining good confidence, an essential ingredient for good market play. No, we are pointing out of how essential it is to try to create a vision of the future. Should “luck” allow for a match of foresight and reality, it is all about: Spot on – Plan your trade and trade your plan.

Why is this a trading principle?

Well think of it like this. No matter if you are a monthly player, a weekly player or time frames much below these time horizons, execution itself is always just a mouse click. A fraction of a second determines the difference between an exposure of capital. And as such an emotional exposure to a world of uncertainty. All the circumstances that lead up towards this last moment of making this step into a different world are influencing the precision of this moment of execution. Like in the world of competitive sport for example. An analogy often used to compare trading to. It is said that the race is won before it started. Focused visualization is common practice in all Olympic disciplines among the best in their field. Great traders do alike and a precursor is detailed planing of ones trades.

Imagining various scenarios like we did in last weeks chart book and leaving little to chance is providing the foundation necessary. In the heat of the battle the strategic plan is clear and supports focus in lower time frame execution. This is especially important in the choppy environment that the summer doldrums provided, which is very distracting.

The chart above is identical with our previous chartbook. We assumed a turning point and assumed the way it be turning and timing as well. Do we know the future? Of course not. What we do know so is that a certain future will be of interest to us since it will allow for us a low risk entry point and a possible reward scenario that fits our criteria.

Only a few hours after our last weeks chart book publication, the first criteria on the daily time frame had manifested. Just as we hoped a washout move to the downside had created a candle wick in favor for an entry. We missed the low of the day prediction by 100 points and provided our first entry possibility as seen in the last chart of this publication in real time in our Telegram channel.
