Recently I have been thinking about my trading goals for the next couple years. As I work through college and stay relatively busy I need a trading system that adapts to me. I decided focusing on these 3 markets and trading them with leveraged ETFs would give me the greatest odds at a profitable, low maintenance trading strategy.
Starting next week, I will be creating 3 posts, one for each of my selected markets. During the week I will be updating the posts with a snapshot of market movement, new drawings/levels and a brief directional opinion. Please know these are just notes for my own trading and should not be considered advice. I will be keeping a daily directional counter on each instruments to see my theoretical accuracy in each of these very different markets. I believe markets are the purest so I look at them for overall bias and translate that to the price of whatever I choose.
As I get adjusted into these markets I will begin to post entries.
Trading plan details: $5,000 initial deposit with an estimated $750 on a single position. No more than two positions at any time. Margin for these ETFs are roughly 100% of trade value and the account minimum is $2,000. So basically, I can only afford to trade 1/4 of the account using these high leverage ETFs. The $750 position size should get us close to 1% move in the underlying market equal to 1% fluctuation in account balance. This strategy is very focused and is almost day trading but these positions are not limited to close at 4. Trading small account means I need low commissions of which I have found $1.00 per trade. Unconfirmed at the moment but I'm working on it.
Anyone have any experience with a trading strategy like this?
