BIDU Baidu Inc Stock Chart 1-15-20

Yesterday's melted candlestick (small body) combined with well-offered price action (lower lows and lower highs) created an opportunity to initiate a new long. 

BIDU Baidu Inc has declined for two days setting up a momentum trade. I'm game planning to be a buyer on a lower open looking for a 10 point rally.

My game plan is to enter the trade in two stages. My first entry is a test of the previous days low. My second entry is a push lower to the $137.50 area.

Because I am "working the order" I will be bottom heavy in my shares. Meaning I will look to buy a greater number of shares if my second entry target is hit. If the stock opens higher I am letting it go.

Have a great day.


PS. A quick lesson about managing your winners as they grind higher. If you believe your stock is near a top, or getting tired -- many professional traders will move up a trailing stop loss instead of exiting.

This means you continue to be in the trade as it moves higher, but get stopped out on a decline. Predictions of tops, capitulation and such should be traded with continued profits in mind. Using a trailing stop allows you to earn more but also be prepared for a decline.

A moving average crossover can help make this easy to manage as well.
