I use daily range statistics in my forex trading.

Thought I would apply that to stocks.

It helps to know how much "milk" each "cow" should give..LOL!

Combine this with the GAP STATISTICS and BUY ZONE and you'll have a pretty good idea just how much "milk" to squeeze.

Hey Alf:

I switched to scalping RIMM instead of AAPL because RIMM's hourly candle range is almost always over $1.00

The first hour of the day is usually over $2.00

Really makes it simple to have a nice payday when stocks move like that every hour.

But aren't you more of a swing trader?

"But aren't you more of a swing trader ?"

---------------------------------

Typically 1 to 3 days...at least that's the goal.

I do (often) hold for longer if I catch a trend...AND...I WILL get in and out the same day if PROFITS dictate that action.

On a "darker" note...sometimes I'm forced to hold longer than I would like if a trade goes against me and I have to "manage" the trade...AND...sometimes I WILL get in and out the same day if LOSSES dictate that action.

THERE !

I said it !

LOSSES !



Regards,

alf44
