Hello Traders,

For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading! 


A few different ways to enter a trade…..A good client of mine told me that in the “out of trading world” he has always made his money by entering at the right price. Made me think about trading and the different ways one can enter a trade. Below is just a quick highlight/ food for thought and over the next few weeks I will expand and put up an article with chart examples:
1. Enter a trade at the market. You get in at the best price possible and the nice thing you make sure you are in if you want to be at this trade.
2. Place a limit order to sell higher than current market price or to buy lower than current market price. Plus side, you will enter at a better price than where the market is and this may give you better chances for a winning trade. The down side, you may miss a good trade because the market never came back enough to let you in…
3. Enter an order to buy on a stop if market goes higher or sell on a stop if market goes lower. I actually like this method for a few entries/market conditions as it provides what I call price confirmation. Example: You like to go long when RSI drops below 20 and stochastics are crossing over, signaling a buy signal. Rather than go at market, i would place a buy stop 2 ticks above the last bar high and let price action show me that there is actually momentum to the upside. What I like to refer to as price confirmation for my signal. I like using this entry when looking at counter trend set ups. What you gain is higher confidence ( in my view ) for price to move in my direction, on the other hand you are giving up a few ticks on the entry….
