TechniTrader Beginner Education "How to Start Trading Stocks Successfully" by Martha Stokes CMT

Beginners Learn the Basics of Trading Stocks


Trading Stocks is becoming an alternative career for many people. It offers a variety of opportunities and advantages that working for a corporation does not. The first step in learning how to start trading stocks successfully, is to understand what you need to do to trade a stock for short term profits.

This requires finding a stock that is poised to move up in price, but that also has what is called a “low risk entry.” What is meant by a “low risk entry” is how the price has moved in recent days. There are patterns in a stock chart that tell you, when a stock is ideal for buying with a low risk. Risk is calculated by the use of a Stop Loss, which protects your capital and profits should the market suddenly go down.

You also will need to learn how to read a stock chart with accuracy. A stock chart is merely a historical set of data that shows how the price moved, and how many traders or investors bought the stock during that period of time.

How to start trading stocks successfully is being able to read the candlestick charts correctly, which will tell you Market Participant Groups that are buying the stock and this is critically important information.

Below is a chart that is showing what is called a “bottom,” or when a stock stops a Downtrend. This is when it begins a recovery returning to moving in an Uptrend, which is what traders want to be able to identify in order trade stocks for short term profits.

The chart also shows resistance, which is where the stock will either stop moving up and move sideways, or retrace which is a brief period of price moving down.

Charts do not predict what a stock will do. However, they are a necessary and highly useful tool when considering a stock to trade. Certain patterns will indicate that the giant Buy Side Institutions using Dark Pools are buying giant lots of the stock in an accumulation mode.

They want to buy millions of shares of a stock to put into their portfolios, to create the Mutual Funds which individuals invest in. However as an example, they cannot buy 10 million shares of a stock all at one time. So using the Dark Pools they buy the stock in increments over an extended period of time, and this creates a specific candlestick pattern on the chart.

When you see this pattern, it is time to buy the stock for a short term trade because the Dark Pool buying creates an underlying energy. They are pulling so much liquidity, meaning stock from the market that it alerts Professional Traders and High Frequency Trading firms, which quickly move the stock up in a fast momentum run.

Summary

When you understand why certain candlestick patterns form, who is controlling price, and how to calculate the best entry for the lowest risk then trading becomes easy and fun.

Learning how to Trade Stocks successfully does require a solid Stock Market Education. If you want to be trading quickly for extra income or as a career, then you need to take a Stock Trading Course.
