TechniTrader Stock Trading "How to Enter Lower Priced Stocks?"

Recognizing Stock Bottoms with Strong Support

Many new Independent Investors and Retail Traders do not have a lot of capital to invest or trade in stocks.  One key Technical Analysis aspect is how to buy a stock just as it is completing a bottom.

Bottoms are wonderful technical patterns for any investor for long-term and for the beginner to novice Retail Trader. Also advanced Retail Traders with limited capital, will find bottoming entries far lower risk with significantly higher profitability.

Go watch the Candlestick Patterns Webinar, to learn which patterns work all the time and how many patterns you really need to learn.

Unfortunately all too often new Independent Investors and Retail Traders see a fast running stock nearing a topping pattern, and rush to buy it because it has been running up for so long. It looks as if the stock is never going to stop, pause, or correct. However, the longer the stock runs the higher the risk of a correction or at least a long sideways pattern. If you have a low capital base or are new to investing and trading, avoid high risk stocks that can suddenly wipe out huge chunks of capital and confidence.

Instead, focus on finding stocks that are completing their bottoms. This is when the stock will have the strongest support close by. By strong support I mean that the stock has an extremely low risk of moving below that prior bottom low. The sideways action of a bottom provides very solid strong support. Therefore if a mistake is made on the entry price you don’t need to worry about getting taken out at a loss, and can simply hold a bit longer and the price will move up.

Below is a candlestick chart example with a daily view of a stock that has been running.

This stock is at high risk for topping because it has not paused to consolidate or correct in a sideways pattern, and therefore has very little support.

Avoid choosing stocks that are talked about by gurus, recommendation services, the nightly news, and big name companies. Instead, choose a stock that is in a technical pattern coming out of a bottom. See the chart example with a daily view below.

If you entered this stock on one of the two green arrow days, the entry on either day was not ideal and the stock retraced due to short term traders taking profits. However there are 3 levels of solid support beneath your entry and this support gives you peace of mind. You don’t have to worry about the stock falling in price suddenly due to topping, and you are in the stock when it gaps up and continues upward.
