Opening/Placing Trades – Reacting to real time Trade Alerts

In this session, we will show you how to take proper action on the trade alerts you receive on our private Discord channel. When you get an alert,  you may or may not be in front of your computer. But the trades I pick are not meant for you to copy them at the same exact moment. There is a time window of possibly hours and even days that you can react to the trade alert and put on a position which is similar to the one I posted. In fact, if you wait a little, you might even get a better fill or advantage over my own trade.

Stock Selection – Finding the right stocks to trade

Although, I have shared my watchlist with you, we will go through the process of creating your own watchlist. Selecting the right stocks you trade is as important as learning our trading methodology. Stock selection is not about getting “secret stock tips” from some online forum. The process has to be diligent and meticulous.

ThinkOrSwim: Settings Alerts to monitor your Trades

Alerts on ThinkorSwim is a powerful feature. Some people like to have more control over how their trades are closed. TOS can send you push notifications when your position goes up or down in value and hits a certain threshold.

Instead of using stop-losses or trailing stops, to automatically close your trades, you can get notified when it is time to take action.
