Short term trading strategies

Proper short term trading strategies can be a great way to create a healthy portfolio if you have the knowledge. Gaining the knowledge is the first step to learning how to trade on the open market. Following the right tips can help you obtain that independence you seek.

Thing is, in day trading, it's always better to start the day's trade with all your plans ready. But the market is so valatile in a day, that it can turn everything upside-down in moments. You must always be having the plan B ready, to keep all your profits going with the market-volatility. That's why it's always safe if you have enough knowledge on all the possible trading technques, and start the day's trade with good enough R&D's done on stock-picking.

The following are several basic short term trading strategies by which day traders attempt to make profits. Besides these, some day traders also use contrarian (reverse) strategies (more commonly seen in algorithmic trading) to trade specifically against irrational behaviour from day traders using these approaches.

Some of these approaches require shorting stocks instead of buying them normally: the trader borrows stock from his broker and sells the borrowed stock, hoping that the price will fall and he will be able to purchase the shares at a lower price. There are several technical problems with short sales - the broker may not have shares to lend in a specific issue, some short sales can only be made if the stock price or bid has just risen (known as an "uptick"), and the broker can call for the return of its shares at any time. Some of these restrictions (in particular the uptick rule) don't apply to trades of stocks that are actually shares of an exchange-traded fund (ETF).

Day traders employ certain short term trading strategies to increase their profits. One of the most important is leverage. We've discussed leverage several times in the website, but it's worth mentioning again. If you'll recall, leverage is the process of borrowing money to make more money.

Let's say a particular trade results in a 10 percent return. If you have $50,000 in your account, then your return will be $5,000. But if you borrow another $50,000 and add it to your account, then your return doubles - you make $10,000. Leverage enables you to increase the dollars returned to you without increasing the performance of the trade.

Where do day traders find this money? They generally borrow it from their brokerage firms, using a special account known as a margin account. The margin account is different from a trader's cash account and requires an initial investment of at least $2,000. Once the margin account is opened, a trader can borrow up to 50 percent of the purchase price of a stock. This is also known as buying on margin.

Both leverage and selling short carry certain risks, and both can result in a day trader losing his assets and being asked to pay back those he borrowed. One of the biggest dangers is the margin call. A margin call may be issued when the value of a trader's margin account falls below a preset limit known as the maintenance margin. To satisfy the margin call, a trader must deposit more money into his account. If he can't do that, the broker will start selling the trader's securities until the maintenance margin is once again attained. Under most margin agreements, a firm can sell a trader's securities without waiting for him to meet the margin call. He may not even be able to control which securities are sold.

To reduce the risks associated with trading on margin, day traders use stop-losses. A stop loss order is an order to sell a security at the market price as soon as it hits a predetermined level. The advantage of a stop order is that a trader doesn't have to obsess over a stock's performance, knowing he has a measure of protection. The disadvantage is that the stop price could be triggered by a short-term fluctuation in a stock's price. Still, a stop order is an important tool for day traders, as is a "mental" stop-loss: a maximum amount that a trader is willing to lose in a day.

  1. Fans are taken right to the music

    - Pretty much everyone looking for music on the web knows this, so MySpace is one of the first stops when looking for a particular song. It's a no-frills way to hear the latest single from a band.
  2. Standardized site for clubs/press to link to

    - Regardless of how fancy and flashy your official website might be, Myspace makes it relatively easy to access all your basics. Many clubs and press outlets still prefer to post links to MySpace over the band's official site.
  3. It's an actual web presence

    - Sure, Facebook is a bit cleaner and has more buzz in the social media world, but MySpace does not require users to sign up in order to access the content. This makes for a quick and easy web presence that anyone can check out.
