AKRX Setup and Trade Plan

Today’s Featured Trade Idea is AKRX.

You can read more about this trade in Rick’s blog post here.  Members can also see his detailed review in the trading room at 9:10am Eastern.  For now, here is my analysis and a potential trade plan made using our Trader Vision 20/20 software.

AKRX printed a Trader’s Best Friend type signal Friday and is working on a Pullback Opportunity (PBO) pattern, inside a Rounded Bottom Breakout (RBB) pattern.  The Reward/Risk is not ideal to the J-hook breakout point, but if we can make it to the top of the gap-down candle body (2/27) we could have a nice trade.

Trader Vision tells us to check the earnings date! The last date we show was 3/1/17, but I find no better date elsewhere.  TV20/20 tells us we have a nice set of conditions, but as planned, that first Target does not offer a great Reward/Risk. However, if AKRX can reach the 2nd or 3rd Targets, this could be a nice trade in an otherwise terrible day for setups.

Note how Trader Vision 20/20 does so much of the work for you.  Knowing the ratio of Bullish Conditions to Bearish ones as well as the overall risk of the position size, risk to Stop out and the Reward possible at each Target price can help a great deal with controlling our emotions.  Knowing the dollar impact of every scenario ahead of time, allows us to make calm decisions during the trade.  It really takes the pressure off.  No guesswork.  No surprises.  No emotional roller coaster.

Trader Vision immediately simplified the process…immediately it provided that information and guidance to me. I knew what I would risk for how much reward, I began taking trades off at the 1st target, 2nd target, I was no longer holding all my trades for the homerun. I also began implementing the stop losses if and when they were reached, not just hoping the stock would recover.  It then became easier to see what patterns were working for me and which were not.  It provided a much more relaxed and stress-free environment. –Joan G
