Be careful with Tail Bars and Loose Charts – Example ASML

If you’ve followed our trades, you know we like to buy when conditions are right.

One of our strategies is to buy a stock/ETF near the close if it is closing near the top of its range on a pickup in volume. That action, coupled with good fundamentals and a good chart pattern, etc. typically follows-through in the next market session.

Always bear in mind, charts have personalities. When a chart contains an abundance of tail bars accompanied by whippy, wide and loose bars and patterns, leave it alone until it settles down and acts right.

Always – Always – Always conduct your own review before initiating any trades. Never simply take our word for it; not only do mistakes happen, but our risk tolerance may not be the same as yours. Never treat the Key List as a “buy list” or a tip service. We are first and foremost an educational service; please always do your own research and trade with care!
