A trade on its way
Silver prices moved as anticipated and provided entries for the weekly player as well as the shorter term swing trader. “Silver-Opportunities” from last week´s chartbook manifested as predicted. A trade is on its way.
The following 60 minute chart shows the weekly entry (1) on very low risk. Support held for 2 days and we exited at break even levels, anticipating lower entry levels. Holding this position with a bit larger stop, from a weekly perspective, would have worked out just fine as well. We are simply very risk averse.
The day trade entry followed shortly thereafter (3). Prices advance quickly form the entry levels and provided for risk mitigation, what we call a financing point (4). With our Quad Exit Strategy we took half of the position off the table (profit taking). At this point the stop was moved to entry levels. On Friday the 8th of March, prices advanced further and our next target was met (5). We took another 25% of the position size off the table.
This exit provided for a profit of over 2 percent (5).
The precious metal sector often is moving in conjunction, therefore we had similar setups for gold. Like the silver trade, we posted the Gold entries and exits in real time in our Telegram channel as well. This was a mutually successful trade.
This 60 minute chart shows the very low risk participation on this Gold trade:
We now find ourselves in the ideal position of participating in the market:
- extremely low risk entries
- early risks mitigation through partial profit taking
- next target met for substantial profit taking
- 25% of position size remaining within the market for potential larger profits at zero risk
In addition of these benefits having money exposed in two instruments within the same sector provides an additional hedge.
It is these opportunities that we seek after, where prices move rapidly away from entry levels initially, and the larger portion of the position size is exposed only briefly. Taking care of risk this way allows us to participate in the market over and over again. Stable, smooth equity curves with hit rates supporting psychology and continuous profit accumulation, are the results of disciplined market participation.
No one knows the future but with good preparation one can find oneself well positioned:
