BIG Setup and Trade Plan

Today’s Featured Trade Idea is BIG.

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.

BIG is working on a Rounded Bottom Breakout and has consolidated for a week right above the b/o level (proving it is Support). I will be looking for a Consolidation b/o buy area with the first Target defined by Weekly Resistance about $46.90. The second Target set off Weekly chart is $50.19-ish, but we’d have to break the 200sma to reach that. So I’ll bank on this trade making its gains between the 2 Targets.

TV20/20 tells us that BIG has at least a month until earnings and has a number of Bullish conditions in its favor. Be aware that it also tells us we need to reach above Target #1 to make this Trade Goal ($350 profit), but can make 2.5:1 Reward/Risk at Target #1 and if we follow this plan $485 if both Targets are reached.

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
