I scan for trades and then choose the best potential candidates based on their score and historical average return. Then I look at each in my charts to see which have the best technical setup to be on-track for this year.
Waiting For The Move
I watch the TradeMiner seasonal trade(s) closely and when a trading trend is set to begin I wait for it to take off in that direction. I may miss out on some of the potential profit, but get the added certainty it is heading in the seasonal direction I was anticipating.
I use TradeMiner to buy options instead of the actual stock (or a futures contract). I risk less money on each trade with a larger potential gain % when I am correct.
Counter Seasonal Pull-back
I don’t buy (or sell) on the exact date the seasonal trend historically begins. I watch a few symbols at a time and when one goes counter to its seasonal trend initially those are the ones I tend to jump on once they turn and start to move in their normal historical seasonal trend direction.
I am part of a membership site that gives potential trade setups for stocks and options based on technical setups. I never take any of their chosen trades without first making sure the trade agrees with the historical seasonal trend and market cycle from TradeMiner.
