KRG Trade Setup and Plan

Normally, Hit and Run Candlesticks does not post featured trades on Fridays.  However, I’ll offer a bonus trade idea for today anyway.  Just remember that Friday is payday!  We should be primarily focused on existing postions, taking profits and deciding if weekend headline risk changes whether a potions should be adjusted or closed.

Today’s Featured Trade Idea is KRG.  This stock has printed an Inverted Head and Shoulders pattern, which is also a Rounded Bottom Breakout pattern.  It has broken through the neckline and Resistance on Wednesday.  It then retested that level Thursday, holding it as Support.  On positive trading, we can use a stop fairly tight below Support and Target prices from Support/Resistance levels off the Weekly chart.

While this stock is a REIT (be aware for tax purposes), it will offer a very low Risk for a reasonable position size.  This offers a good Reward/Risk Ratio, while allowing us to remove all risk (by raising the Stop above Break-even) if Target #1 is reached.  If the stock reaches the second Target, the Trade Goal will be achieved.

Hope to see you in the trading room at 9:10am Eastern.

Below is my analysis and a potential trade plan made using our Trader Vision 20/20 software.

The KRG Trade Setup – As of 5-31-18



The KRG Trade Plan


Notice how Trader Vision 20/20 does the work for you, by allowing you to define your risk in terms of “Position Size” (Dollars invested in a trade), “Risk to Stop” (Dollars lost if stopped out) and in terms or Reward/Risk Ratio.  It’s easy to look at all the various scenarios using Trader Vision.  So you know…

  • How much money is at risk if Stopped Out?
  • How much will be gained if we sell the entire position at Target #1?
  • What does that mean in terms of Reward/Risk Ratio?
  • How much will be gained if we sell half the position at Target #1 and the remainder at Target #2?
  • What does that mean in terms of Reward/Risk Ratio?

Knowing all these scenarios really takes the pressure off a trader, making it much easier to control your emotions during a trade.  It also logs all this information so that down the road you can see exactly what you were thinking.  These are some of the benefits of TV20/20
