Short term setup on BABA (risky trade)

NYSE:BABA   Alibaba Group Holdings Ltd.
Today we have a quick setup to share on BABA; in the title, we said it is a "Risky Trade" Why? Because the stop is super tight, and the volatility can trigger the setup and then go towards the stop loss in a matter of 4 to 5 candlesticks (even less, you never know)

However, with all that said, let's take a look at this idea.

a) The price is on a clear support zone , and we can see the next resistance zone at 270.00. That provides us a trading zone from 245 to 270. We want to be able to catch that bullish movement in case it happens.

b) As you can see on the previous 2 green arrows, every time the price came from below that level, that support level worked as a lunch pad towards 270.00

c) Can we assume it will happen again? We don't have any clue at all. However, if we have, let's say, a 50% chance on this setup, we are risking 1 dollar to make 3 dollars. And that's a bet I would take 100 times. Even if the real chances are 30%, I will keep taking this setup with a risk/reward ratio of 3.

d) Ok, with all that boring statistic explained, let's go to the planning. We will set Stop Limit orders at 245.23 / Our stop loss will be at 237.86 / Break-Even level is the horizontal yellow line (if the price reaches that level, we will move our stop loss to the entry-level (risk-free) / Take profit will be at 267.47

e) How much money will we set on this setup? THIS IS IMPORTANT: The reason most people blow their accounts is that they put at risk whatever "their hearts feel" (this is a bad idea). So, to answer the original question, we will be risking 1% of our Capital. Do you understand that? that means that we will keep having 99% of our Capital to trade if we fail miserably on this trade. Risk Management is critical, REALLY IMPORTANT!

f) Finally, if the price does not reach our entry-level and goes below the stop level, we will automatically cancel the setup. And if we have a stop loss, nothing to say, that's part of trading, deal with that.

g) EXPECTED TIME OF THE SETUP if everything goes as expected: 1 to 2 weeks


Thanks for reading guys! Protect your capital
Order cancelled: The setup was not executed, and the price went below the stop loss. The setup is canceled.

Interesting idea. Especially with BABA and its recent sanctions. We're interested to see what other traders say.
