The SPF 15 minute candle method sounds good but I could pull off only 3 trades for 1day and would have to sit aside for 5 days before the next trade because of trading rules. Otherwise post $25000. Presently doing the RSI (2) with some success long and short.

Please excuse such a simple question from someone trying to learn day trading. I really like the idea of trading one stock but know that if you trade a stock frequently you cannot claim your losing trades for tax purposes ( Wash Rule). How do you trade one stock but avoid the huge taxes.

Thank you for helping new traders.

=====================================================

That's not the case.

The records of your trade establish a pattern. It would be obvious, even to the densest IRS agent, that your trades were not to avoid or evade taxes but just your normal trading style.

Thank you TRO for your info. I have been day trading SPX recently and everytime I take a loss my broker ( Fidelity) reports it as a wash sale. Since I dump my broker records straight into my tax software each year I think I'm losing a lot of money by the wash sale designation. Any way around this?

Use different tax software or speak with your broker.

Then again, learn to enter and exit with a profit!!

Q. is average true range same as average daily range. ATR/ADR?

A. NO!!!


Average True Range
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Average True Range (ATR) is a technical analysis indicator developed by J. Welles Wilder, based on trading ranges smoothed by an N-day exponential moving average.

The range of a day's trading is simply high − low. The true range extends it to yesterday's closing price if it was outside of today's range:

true range = max(high,closeprev) − min(low,closeprev)

The average true range is then an N-day exponential moving average of the true range values. Wilder recommended a 14-period smoothing. Note this is by his reckoning of EMA periods (see the EMA article on that), meaning an =1/14.

The idea of ranges is that they show the commitment or enthusiasm of traders. Large or increasing ranges suggest traders prepared to continue to bid up or sell down a stock through the course of the day. Decreasing range suggests waning interest.
======================
From StockFetcher:

Using the relationships between the high and low of a day compared with the previous close, the Average True Range is a measure of volatility developed by Welles Wilder. Typically used to identify oversold and overbought conditions, a low average true range indicates a stock which lacks volatility, while high average true range indicates potentials sell-offs of a stock.

======================
From StockFetcher:

The average day range computes a simple average of the day range over a given number of days. This value is also represented as a percent of the closing price.
