How to calculate stop loss with crypto

Reddit Stock Market

24/05/2021 - 01:07

I'm not sure if this is the right subreddit to post this; if it isn't please tell me which is the correct subreddit for this. I'm used to putting stop losses at under 2-4% for normal non volatile stocks in the stock market. I started investing in crypto a few months ago and don't know how to calculate where to put the sl, I've read 15% is fine, or calculate it with something related to the volatility, which I did not understand. Could someone please tell me how do I calculate sl or tell me a website where they explain this, because I couldn't find a webpage where they explain it well. Thanks in advance.   submitted by   /u/jasomniax [link]   [comments]

  1. Question about risk and profit management (30/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi all, I've got to ask you about opinions and suggestions on my current risk and profit management. I've been using it about a while to a success but now I'm thinking that it might be tweaked a little. So basically I have four Risk Percent thresholds of possible losses: 10%, 20%, 30% and 40%. Each of these is correlated to Decimal Amount of profit (reward part of risk and reward), 10% is 0,25; 20% is 0,5; 30% is 1 and 40% is 2. When setting stop loss/take profit I first set my entry price. From that I calculate stop loss by doing simple equation: SL= Entry - (Entry * Risk Percent). After SL is calculated I calculate take profit: TP= [(Entry - SL)* DecimalAmount ]+Entry So what do you guys think about it? I was thinking that I might be taking too little profit, especailly that I'm more of a swing/position trader. What would you guys suggest?   submitted by   /u/badwolfus [link]   [comments]

  3. Help with options stop loss and target (10/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    So, I’m currently on Robinhood, but I’m switching to TradeStation/Trading View link up. I’ve practiced for about 5-6 hours on the bar replay feature doing a certain strategy, and I’m wanting to start implementing it. Id like to do it with options, but I need to be able to set a stop loss and target based on the stock price, not the options price. Is there a way to do this on that platform? I’m not going to do optionspricecalculator on both the target and stop loss on different dates. Thats too much. I just need to be able to set a stop loss and target for an option, on the stock price. Thanks so much!   submitted by   /u/bopoff-entirely [link]   [comments]

  4. Whats the difference between Limit Price, Stop-Limit Price,Stop-Loss Price? (21/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Are all able to be used for both buying and selling? From what I know, limit pricing for buying means you set a price and if the market price falls to ur limit price or below, it will help you to buy the stock. As for selling, if the market price rises to ur limit price or above, it will help you to sell the stock? Assuming there is enough liquidity in the market. Stop-Loss Price is to set a price whereby if the market price drops to that level, you will want to sell the stock no matter what. So let say I set it at $90, and the market price plummeted to $85, and there is only liquidity at $85 but no one wants to buy at $90, it will help me to sell at $85? Does this mean no matter how much the market plummet to, as long as the market price drops below $90, at a price with enough liquidity, it will help me sell? How does Stop-Loss Price apply when buying? Stop-Limit Price is just Stop-Loss Price with a limit pricing? So if I set my Stop-Loss Price at $90, at any price below or at $90, it will trigger the Stop-Loss Price? But can I put my Limit Price both higher or lower than my Stop-Loss Price? So if I put my Limit Price at $92, once the market rises back to $92 or above from $90 and below when the Stop-Loss Price was triggered, it will help me sell my shares? What if the price never goes back up to $90 and above? Does my stock never get sold? So shouldnt I set my Limit Price at $88, whereby once the Stop-Loss Price is triggered at $90, it will help me sell my shares at $88 and above? Also, how does this apply to the context of buying? Thank you!   submitted by   /u/pieceofshitzo [link]   [comments]

  5. Should I use stop loss orders for my overvalued stocks? (30/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    New investor here. I never experienced a bear market yet and I am wondering how to prepare for one. My idea is to use stop loss orders in all my overvalued stocks. So for example I have $XOM at 40 and it is now around 58. I am happy with selling it at 50. Should I place a stop loss order at 50 in case it crashes?   submitted by   /u/Chrys [link]   [comments]

  7. Setting up order to both protect from loss and capture profit at exit point (11/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Is there a way to set up one order to both sell at a stop point or at a limit? Say for example I bought a stock at $10. I'd like to set up an order that will essentially do a stop if it drops to $9, protecting me from loss, and a limit if it hits my exit goal of $15. Numbers are random of course. I assumed a stop limit did that, but I tried it today and discovered that's not the case. It seems like it'd be a pretty desirable option. But it looks like I can only do one or the other. I can't set up both a limit and stop on the same shares, and a stop limit doesn't do that either.   submitted by   /u/Necrosomething95 [link]   [comments]

    We are looking at none other than BTC ethererum. ???? remember crypto is something you can trade round the clock, 24/7?. With that said BTC is seeing some selling pressure today, after turkey’s central bank banned the use of crypto assets in the country, citing unforeseen as the main reasons! BTC is trading ????3% lower today, and further volatility is to be expected, the same Goes for ethererum, which is trading ???? 3.5% lower at the moment.

  9. Best Practices (17/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hello fellow investors. I have a question regarding best practices regarding stop loss and trailing stop loss orders. Im obviously new to the wonderful world of stocks but i have absorbed as much information as possible over the last few months. Ive seen some different opinions regarding stop loss and trailing stop loss orders. A few books ive read (Peter Lynch) say never set a stop loss order because you are out of the game for that position if your stock price doesen't increase immediately and you sell. Reading some different online articles ive seen setting a 10 to 20 percent trailing limit order can help prevent losses. So.. I have a Sofi account and a Fidelity account. Started on Sofi but im opening more positions on Fidelity as I learn what to do and what not to do. Right now as a beginner I have about 2k in 7 positions in the biotech and fintech sectors. They are doing well in my opinion, meaning they are mostly in the green so far. My theory is; to always buy into a position on the uptick, and to set a stop loss order a few cents above my cost average asap. Then monitor the price of the stock and if its gets above 15% increase then remove the stop loss order and set a 10% trailing stop limit order for the stock. It makes sense to me because i'm protecting my original investment, and once I see enough gains from a position I can lock it in with a trailing limit order in the hopes that the position will stay green. I'm just looking for any opinions on whether or not this is a good / bad strategy since i cant stare at the charts all day! Thanks in advance for any guidance!   submitted by   /u/Apex057 [link]   [comments]

  10. Trailing Stop Before Placing A Trade? (01/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Does anyone know of a platform that will allow you to place a trailing stop loss before entering a trade? I currently use WeBull, and you have to create a separate sell order after the buy order has been filled. You can set a stop loss with your buy order, but it stays stationary and can't move up unless you manually do so. My goal is to use a trailing stop when scalping a stock during violent move, so I secure some profit. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.   submitted by   /u/ThisSiteSucksDick [link]   [comments]

    Hey guys, Can someone help me fully understand a trailing stop loss order. My question is that if I put a trailing stop loss order on a stock of mine at for 10% for example, and in pre-market the stock drops 15%, will it simply not fulfill my order or will it execute the order at the market value of -15% at the open?   submitted by   /u/fckRnbaMods [link]   [comments]

  12. Trailing stop loss/buy question (27/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    New to trading and had a question regarding trading software/apps. While I've seen plenty of software which will allow you to create a trailing stop loss which will monitor a stock price, and sell it if the stock takes a down turn based on predefined parameters, but I'm having a tough time finding out if anything can do the opposite. Say you own shares of a stock and have a trailing stop loss on it. The stock reaches a peak and declines in price to a point that triggers the stop loss. I'm looking for something that will then monitor the stock as it is declining, then once the price begins rebounding, will automatically buy me back in on the stock if the stock price reaches a predefined parameter. What would such a function be called, a trailing buy? Maybe I'm just not using the right terminology.   submitted by   /u/starmandan [link]   [comments]

  14. How to set a stop loss (07/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    My entire portfolio are things I plan on holding long term, primarily ETFs. My most volatile funds are a couple of the ARK funds (W, G, and F). Because everything I have are long term holds, I've never considered using stop losses. But I feel like I should with my ARK funds. First of all, is it worthwhile if I'm planning on holding them for 5+ years? If it is worthwhile - Do you set stop losses to sell every share? Or do you set the stop loss to sell just the profit you've made and keep your initial investment intact?   submitted by   /u/jmur5074 [link]   [comments]

  15. Help calculating position size (18/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I was watching a video linked below where someone tests out a strategy 100 times. His max loss was $100 on each trade (with a stop loss), and took profits at $150. What I'm curious about, is how he calculated how much buying power to put into each trade to equate to a $150 profit. Assuming the underlying rises a few pips, he would essentially have to be trading a large amount of money to be able to reach his profit, but that means that his stop loss would have to be extremely tight..   submitted by   /u/gflovesautomatic [link]   [comments]

    So I have been trading for a few years but mainly but it and leave it until I see some money. But here lately I have been more actively trading. With that said I have been having some success but have made two fairly big errors. Sold to soon... lost money ($MOS), and Waited to long... lost money (#RKT). I know about stop loss, but it seems I would lose money sometimes when its just drop period shooting up. What are some strategies that you guys use. Such as some calculation on when to sell like 30% up or stop loss that moves up? I am trying to figure out the best moves.   submitted by   /u/AnaxDet [link]   [comments]

  17. Got screwd over today by that sharp drop? Stop using Stop-loss/limit orders. Institutionen are using it against you! (23/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    In today's day and age stop loss orders are not your friend, they are used against you by institutions using algorithms to kick you out. Today many stocks dropped over 10% and went back up within a couple of minutes. Guess who is laughing and pocketing your shares? Stop loss used to be a good idea when there were no smartphones. Nowadays you can check your stocks 24/7, you can set price alarms and check/reassess the risk. And if that's not enough, hedge your position with a options. Unless you are a scalper and day trader, today's market will screw you over with deliberate attacks by algorithms and institutions. They buy oder flow and other order information from your broker for a reason!

  20. Buy/sell orders for dummies (i.e. for me) (10/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Trading newbie here. I've been researching the various buy/sell orders that a trader can utilize. Market and limit orders are obviously very easy to understand. I also understand stop limit orders for the most part...it's the stop loss orders that I'm having trouble grasping... Isn't a stop loss order essentially the same as a limit order? If I set a stop loss order to sell for $10, then it will become a market order and sell for the next available price once it hits $10. If I set a limit order for $10 then it will only sell at $10. I understand that market orders can be slightly different than a limit order (price-wise depending on when the market order executes), but apart from that wouldn't the two basically be the same? Just looking for some clarification on non-market/limit orders. Thanks in advance!   submitted by   /u/dsmall434 [link]   [comments]

  21. Should I be using stop losses on some stocks? Pros, cons (14/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    One of my largest holdings is AAPL for example. It makes up about 11% of my portfolio and I'm in at a $91 cost basis. I don't believe it will go that low anytime soon, but I guess you never know. If it did though, to me if rather add more shares " at a discount" than sell I guess. Anyways the cons I can see is that since its held in taxable, I will incur some short term gains, but that may be better than losing ( maybe temporarily) though some principle amount. Would someone with a relatively long term horizon need a stop loss? So do you set it typically above your cost basis or at some number below that where "you don't want to lose anymore money" , for example. Wouldn't most long term buy hold type investors just ride it to the bottom or say 70% of your principle amount or something? Then if the stop loss does trigger, you have to make the decision when or if to buy back in. What if it shoots right back up way over your stop loss? Now you're incurring capital gains plus buying back in higher, so you've lost.   submitted by   /u/apooroldinvestor [link]   [comments]

    This could be a really unintelligent question, but with a lot of discussion about how much longer this bull run can last, can’t investors just use stop losses to insure themselves against a market crash?

  24. Take Emotion Out of Trading (08/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Across the many invest/stock subs there is a lot of meme stock posting going around. I am not against this by itself, as there is money to be made, but be smart, especially those who are new to this. We have all been there, bought a stock at $10 it goes up to $20 and you're like, it will never fall, then it goes to $15 and you say, when it is back to $20, then I'll sell. You end up selling at $7 for a loss. When stocks have these crazy runs, just 'stop-loss limit sell orders. For example, I'm currently in $CLOV, bought in at $11.65. It's currently trading at $16.10 at the time of post. I have a 'stop-loss limit' order at $15. Meaning, if the stock drops to that level, it sells automatically. Of course, it could drop to that level, I sell, and then it rockets to $25, but ignore those. This will guarantee I can ONLY make a profit. I HIGHLY recommend you use these automatic sell triggers to prevent yourself from believing STONKS can ONLY go up. Guarantee you make a profit and while you may be sad when you sell a little early, you will love it when you don't take a loss which I guarantee most of these meme stocks will turn out to be in the long run. tl:dr Use stop-loss limit orders to not get screwed over when the bubble burst. Enjoy the ride and I hope you all become super-rich one day (if you're not there already)!   submitted by   /u/SpeedoManXXL [link]   [comments]

The positions in the market are quite correlated to nasdaq, I am not sure which etf I should go with and which etf will should have best risk/reward ? Have been bleeding on some growth stocks and ark, cutting the loss there does not feel the right thing now, but concerned if market correction comes they will go down more.

  26. please stop telling new investors to invest in crypto. (23/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    as a new investor, I've been really dabbling into everything and learning. and you know what's the most fucking annoying thing? when I ask a God damn question about something completely unrelated to crypto and someone tells me to "just buy doge/bitcoin/ethereum/etc" . like bro I'm fucking NEW. first off I never asked about crypto and second off shut up. we all know about crypto. we know. we get it. but here's the thing. telling new investors to "just buy bitcoin it's the future!11!11" is how you make people lose money. hopping on trends and putting your money on a literal fad/trend like doge (I feel like the hype is more emotional than logical), is literally just the most ignorant thing ever. on top of that crypto goes 24/7 and is super volatile. meaning you could buy ethereum, see a +.05% profit, and go to bed. you wake up and since you're new and don't even know stop losses exist, you wake up and see that it dropped significantly in such a short amount of time. as a new investor you're more likely to panic sell here. on top of that, if you try to HODL thinking it'll go up, if you put money in something like a fad/trend because "bro it's the future!!1!11" and people dip out the trend, it only goes more and more down. telling new people to invest in such a highly volatile and scary thing, especially when stuff like doge which felt like a fad in the first place, is beyond aggravating. stop it. when a new investor asks a question just answer their question. it is super aggravating for me especially because I get so annoyed by people that just tell me "bro bitcoin bro bro doge bro!!" when you're like less than a few months into everything.   submitted by   /u/FlamingOrange [link]   [comments]

  28. Help understanding/setting up "trailing stop loss $" for profit protection (21/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi all, first off thank you very much in advance for your help. ​ No options/margin; just pure stock cash account situation. Here's what I want to accomplish... Say there's a stock that I want to buy which is trading at $100 and I want to sell that stock when I have at least 3% profit (sell @$103). Also I have zero concern about protecting my investment and so do NOT want to use stop loss for loss protection (i.e. I am willing to wait until the end of time for the stock to return to $100+ if it goes down before it hits $103) I could put in a limit order at $103 and call it done. If/when it ever hits $103 it would trigger my limit order and sell and I could take my 3%. However, I also believe that there's a decent enough chance that the stock may continue upward once it hits $103 and so I don't want to cash out early if it's headed up. At the same time I want to cash out if it begins to go down once it's hit $103. I'm using e*Trade and what I think I want ("trailing stop loss %") doesn't exist. The closest they have is through their power e*Trade platform and is called "trailing stop loss $". When that order type is picked there are 2 values that are required; a "trailing amount" and a "limit offset". Searching their help documentation got me nowhere. The "trailing amount" is whatever the $ amount is to trail by (ok, got it). The "limit offset" has me confused as I've no idea what to set it to for what I'm trying to do because whatever I set it to (be that $1 or $10000) it makes no difference in the calculated estimated amount I would receive. So in my bought @$100 and selling @$103 to take 3% profit example think I'm supposed to set it up as sell order="trailing stop loss $" with "limit offset"=$103 and lets say I want to protect at least $2 of my $3 of profit so I set "trailing amount"=$1. But then the word "offset" throws me because what's value is it offsetting from? Zero? Again, if anyone knows and understands how this works and if I can accomplish what I want to do your help is greatly appreciated. Thanks again.   submitted by   /u/NorjackNC [link]   [comments]

  29. Trailing stop loss vs. Hold and add (12/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I recently opened a position in VOO and QQQ, but the bears on reddit/twitter/stocktwits are keeping me at the edge of my seat. Let's say the market crashes tomorrow. Am I better off setting a trailing stop loss at say 8% or should I ride the wave all the way down and add shares along the way? I should add, I don't have thousands of dollars to YOLO once the market is in free fall. Regardless of what happens tomorrow, I plan to purchase 2-3 shares of VOO or QQQ per month. Appreciate the insight.   submitted by   /u/911live911wire911 [link]   [comments]

  30. Afraid to set Stop Loss or sell stock because of the Wash Sales Rule. (28/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Fairly new, this thing is driving me a bit nuts. Example: I fractional purchase a stock every day for 5 days. I pay $1 each time. This creates 5 separate lots, or instances of trade for the record books. Stock goes up by $1 every day. So $100 to $105 in 5 days. I set stop loss at $102. Stock price drops to $102 next week, and stop loss is triggered, selling all my shares. So I gained in total ($2) but lost money on the lots that I bought at $103, $104, $105 per share. Wash rule gets triggered, if I ever get back into the same stock at another bargain price in the next 30 days. I recently noticed that I just stopped purchasing stocks if it’s not at a dip and below my initial purchase cost basis, and am avoiding setting stop losses. I wouldn't get Wash Sales rule if I were to hold forever, but I would like to get in and out of the same stock often and take advantage of the dips, and insulate myself from massive crash this way. Is this not good? I feel like wash sale, GFV, free riding, pattern day trader rule all are trying to discourage me from doing this.   submitted by   /u/thsndmiles30 [link]   [comments]

  31. Best way to determine a stop loss point (07/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I'm trying to figure out how to determine a good price to put a stop loss on. My first instinct is to set it to the purchase price of the share so that in theory I never actually lose money.

    I usually keep a percentage of cash in my IRA mostly out of fear of a correction, especially now. I was thinking instead of putting it into say QQQ or MSFT with a stop loss. Is this a win win or are there drawbacks?   submitted by   /u/apooroldinvestor [link]   [comments]

  33. Stop Loss Order Advice (06/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Everyone is predicting the next market crash, which is bologna because no one can predict the next crash, but that doesn’t mean setting some stop-loss orders isn’t a good practice. Regarding index funds (S&P and total market), what percentage drop would you think is indicative of a larger crash beginning? I’m thinking a 10% drop in something like VOO could be a strong indicator it could be getting worse but I’m newer to investing and want to get some advice from some people who have experienced crashes before. Thanks!   submitted by   /u/chrism-6 [link]   [comments]

  34. There could be a feedback loop between crypto market and the stock market (23/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I think we all agreed about the moving of the us stock market has great impact on the crypto market, but how about the opposite? Before people don’t think crypto market can influence the stock a lot, but now things are changing. If we look back to what happening in the last few weeks or months, we can clearly see the connection between stock market and the crypto market are fundamentally changed, because those crypto companies like $riot are actually in the stock market now, not only a concept sort thing. And also companies like $tsla are publicly admitted they invested in the crypto. So the moving of the crypto market will directly influenced the price of those companies and the influence the whole stock market. This totally changed the big picture. We can imagine, since the us stock market only opens in the the certain time, but the crypto markets is 24/7, and also the other big players Chinese and Europeans are totally in different time zone, the impact between those traders are delayed, so it’s possible making a feedback loop. Think about if a investment institution invested in $BTC a few days ago. Then the stock market start moving down. Then they have to dump some $BTC to make up the loss, then drive the crypto market down, then at night the European Chinese might consider dumping a bit to avoid the risk as the market going down. The. The next morning the institution sees the BTC going down, he might need to dump some stocks to make up the loss of the $BTC. So the trend might be enhanced by this loop, up or down, either way could be. And that might explain the moving of the market in the last few days and foreshadowing the future. This is not a investment advice, only my personal thoughts.   submitted by   /u/MoeNancy [link]   [comments]

  36. Setting stop loss limits (11/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I need to set up stop loss limits and looking for some advice on what you think the best way to go about it. I have bought some stocks and have had the bottom drop out of them, Nikola and Workhorse are a couple of my biggest drops. Being new to investing, I wish I had found this group for advice a year ago. For now, I have to suck it up and wait for them to recover, not sure Nikola ever will, but I'm trying to protect my other stocks. So, this leads me to the following questions, is there a rule of thumb to follow? -Do you use a certain percentage or dollar amount and how do pick that number? -Do you use the trailing limit or a flat number? Thanks in advance.   submitted by   /u/Jamin_Jimmy [link]   [comments]

  37. How to set your stop loss? (24/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Hi there. I've been investing since 2012,but always bought etfs and forgot. In 2019 I started to pickup single stocks for fun However I applied the wrong approach (etfs one) and it has killed my portfolio as some stocks went down 90% and I never sold them cause etf approach dont work on all stocks. Also I've noticed that time in the market is ok only for etfs, but with single stocks timing your entry is everything. I invested 240k in lukin coffee at 48 and lost 80%. (wrong name cause ticker cannot be memtioned) However the 10k invested at 3.5 became 40k so far. If I have invested the 240k at 3.5 I would be a millionaire now. This is just one of the many examples. I never used stop loss on etfs, but I noticed it must be used on single stocks. I was invested in TAL and PSTH and stop losses avoided me huge losses, protecting my portfolio. However as I've just started to use them, I dont have a strategy in place and set them quite randomly at 25-30%. Does anyone uses a strategy or is willing to share how they use stop losses and what parameters must be followed to set them?   submitted by   /u/emilstyle91 [link]   [comments]

  38. This cant be legal right? Etoro closed position below market. Advice requested (25/02/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    On Tuesday as the market dipped, I took a leveraged CFD position in an index on Etoro, watched it climb to a profit, but as I prepared to sell, Etoro had a technical issue which kept me signed out for give or take an hour. When it allowed me back into my account the trade was at a big loss, far below my stop loss. This was obviously worrying as the downside risk of my trade had increased a lot; but I still had faith in my decision and watched it climb back into a profit, before I had the chance to sell, Etoro had MORE technical issues, this time locking me out for the entire evening/morning. When It allowed me back in my trade had been closed just hours before, when the market was well above my stop-loss level. I started emailing Etoro for help and they claim to have retroactively closed my position for the price that the stop-loss would have activated. Key points: The same technical issue that stopped me from selling in a profit, stopped their stop-loss from closing my trade They closed my trade without my consent, and I did not receive even close to market value at the time of my trade being closed If we are able to retroactively pick a point on a chart where I should have sold, but didn't due to ETOROs technical issue why at the point of maximum loss and not maximum gain (or at least where I tried and was signed out)? I have tried to contact Etoro support, but they sent one canned response saying what they did, and have stopped answering. I understand I entered a risky position, I am ok with the risk of losing due to the market, but it seems like Etoro made it impossible for me to do anything but lose the maximum amount here. I am using Australian Etoro if it makes a difference. Where can I go from here? Any advice?   submitted by   /u/tnucracso [link]   [comments]

  39. How does crypto tracking work? (16/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    I'm new to crypto and have been reading as much as possible about it, but this doesn't make sense to me. From what I understand, one of the benefits of crypto is that it's transparent and tracable. Yes, I can look up any transaction I want, but how do I know who it belongs to? The transactions are completely anonymous, so I'm not understanding how this is beneficial. For example, if someone was using crypto for nefarious means, how would anyone track that back to the source? How would we know if a politician was the one doing shady stuff with crypto? How would we know if it was a billionaire using crypto to manipulate the market? Thanks in advance for replying to this. And I'm a huge nerd, so if you have any books or resources that dive into this, I'd appreciate it.   submitted by   /u/mstzbootman [link]   [comments]

  40. Is it smart to sell a good stock with solid DD and catalysts when the market sells off? (12/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    What is your approach when you're holding a stock with Solid DD and upcoming catalysts but it breaks your mental stop loss and continues selling off gradually, either because the market in general is selling off or another reason—but the company's fundamentals, DD, and catalysts have not changed? I have a group of small caps stocks that have been doing this, and I'm down about 30% on most of them. I kick myself for not selling them when my stop loss was reached, but I also fear that if I sell I may miss the rally, or I may buy a fake breakout only to see another dip. How do you approach these situations?   submitted by   /u/philematologist [link]   [comments]

  41. Are tech growth stocks being manipulated for stop loss harvesting? (27/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    My tech stocks portfolio is in big red, some titles (e.g. CCIV) even -60%...NIO keeps going down, with some bull traps happening in-between. My intuition tells me that the big institutional banks are trying once again to screw retailer investors over... They know many of us have piled into these types of stocks in the previous months They are pissed at the GME 'rebellion' So what do they do? They cause panic selling and stop loss harvesting, by asking their friends at Bloomberg to push news about 'these companies are too overvalued', driving prices down and down They put some bull traps in-between to fuck us over even more In the meantime, the buy the dips, and when they decide that the sell-off is over...they bagged a lot of stocks with potential at a discount   submitted by   /u/brucewayneineurope [link]   [comments]

  42. I don't understand the hate towards crypto (31/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Im 29. I talk about crypto with my older cousins and relatives. Literally all of them simply ignore crypto while investing in stocks. They say they don't trust it, it's not going anywhere, blah blah blah. I hear this all over besides within my family and I genuinely do not understand it. Instead of doing research which could lead to big gains, people are simply idnorimg crypto all together. If you're in this subreddit and you're ignoring crypto, I'm genuinely curious as to why? It makes no sense to me. I've made more money in crypto than any stock I've invested in. Yes I'm new to stocks in general, but crypto has changed my life so far.   submitted by   /u/NickG8971 [link]   [comments]

  43. Would you use this TradingView Risk Management Indicator? (28/02/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Last week, I published a post titled, Setting a Stop Loss for the New Day Trader. It stirred up a few comments, which motivated me to develop a TradingView indicator to show the stop loss and risk/reward, and also show position size based on predefined values for capital and level of risk (in percentage). There's nothing proprietary about this risk management system, but what makes this indicator unique is the Risk % and position sizing. Most traders stick with a basic 1 or 2% Risk Rule, where they will not risk more than 1 or 2% of their capital on any one trade. I went further and applied four levels of risk: 0.25%, 0.50%, 1% and 2%. How you apply these different levels of risk is what makes this indicator subjective and unique. Here are some common ways on applying Risk %: If the stock is extremely volatile and has a better than 50% chance of hitting the stop loss, then risk only 0.25% of your capital on that trade. If a stock has low volatility and has less than 20% change of hitting the stop loss, then risk 2% of your capital on that trade. Risking anywhere between 0.25% and 2% is purely based on your intuition and assessment of the market. If you’re on a losing streak and you want to cut back on your position sizing, then lowering the Risk % can help you weather the storm. If you’re on a winning streak and your entries are experiencing a higher level of success, then increase gradually increase the Risk % to reap bigger profits. If enough people show interest, then I will publish this on TradingView as a public indicator with the source code open to everyone. I welcome all feedback! Thanks. ​ Processing img yeh7ygtagak61...   submitted by   /u/TheDrivenTrader [link]   [comments]

    Experts tell MarketWatch that the average crypto investor who uses a centralized exchange like Coinbase COIN or Kraken to buy and sell crypto assets should expect the IRS to know exactly how much money they made on those transactions, if the bill becomes law.

  45. Interested in buying my first crypto ever, advice and help needed. Have no idea what to do. (26/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    So I own various stocks but no crypto whatsoever. I really still don't understand what crypto is despite my many attemps to understand it, which is why I haven't taken the plunge and purchased any yet. Mainly I don't quite understand the differences between market securities and crypto, and how they differ both in the nature of the return they provide as well as just sheer technical differences. I'm interested in some crypto ETFs, but I genuinely have no idea where to start. Can I buy crypto through my investing account? Do I exchange it the same way I would if buying foreign currency? Sorry if i sound like i'm a noob but that's only because i am a noob. Any passionate crypto fanatics out there want to ELI5 how I can select a crypto, and go about actually buying it? The things I'm most confused about is just how to actually purchase it, and how it differs from purchasing a security, or if it's just the same?   submitted by   /u/stonkonlygoup95 [link]   [comments]

  47. Question about trailing stop buy, want to know for sure on how it works (19/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I want to make sure I understand how this works, I always use a sell trailing stop so I know how that works, but I never used a buy trailing stop. Lets say stock ABC is at $100 per share, I want to buy one stock at a buy trailing stop at 5%. Stock goes up $105, does that trigger a buy? or will it force it to always be under $95? (for that maybe thats considered a "buy trailing stop limit"). I know with a sell trailing stop at 5%, it will follow it, as in Stock goes from $100 to $120 and decides to do down 5% so it will be $114 and it will trigger a sell. a Buy trailing stop is confusing me a little since I am trying to think of it as doing the opposite   submitted by   /u/Galion- [link]   [comments]

  49. Complicated wash sale tax question (loss and a future loss) (07/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I’m trying to figure out how much I should set aside for taxes for 2021. Please, only helpful comments and no mean comments. As this was my biggest lost on one trade but I did learn a valuable lesson on sizing and risk management of averaging down. I do not trade this ticker anymore. Let’s say my tax bracket is 25%. Say I have two brokerage accounts. One is td ameritrade and the other is webull. 1) My td ameritrade I am positive p/l for the year. Let’s call it +$25,000 with no wash sales for simplicity. 2) My webull account is overall negative loss p/l of $-10,400 (see below for breakdown) In my webull account, total $15,400 loss on common shares. Offset by a $5,000 gain on other securities so a net loss in the account of -$10,400 for the year. Sales below: Feb 12- I bought 100 shares of XYZ. Kept buying shares throughout the day and ended up with 2000 shares XYZ with a $40 average. Feb 12- same day, I sold 1000 shares at $35 for a loss of -$5000. Then I sold another 1000 shares at $30 for a loss of -$10,000. Total loss -$15,000 Feb 12- also same day. I bought and sold options contracts in that ticker. Some for loss some for a gain. Feb 16- bought 1 share. Sold 1 shares for a loss. -$100 loss. Bought 100 shares. Sold 100 shares for a loss. -$100 loss. Total -$200 for the day. Feb 19- bought 100 and sold 100 shares for a loss. $-100 loss for day. Feb 22- bought 100 and sold 100 shares for a loss. $-100 loss for day. Feb 16-22- bought and sold multiple contracts, some gains some losses. My question is- I know the concept behind a wash sale and if I take a loss, buy same security back, the loss amount would be added back to my cost basis of said security and the examples I’ve seen are all added back to a gain. 1)What happens if I took a loss multiple times after buying it back again and again? I did not buy back the initial 2000 shares but only rebought and sold 301 shares (based on this example) within the 30 days. 2)Will the -$15,400 loss in webull be a wash sale? Or only a portion $(400) of it would be a wash sale since I only bought back a portion? Even if I sold the 301 shares I rebought at a loss? 3) Will the options contracts I bought be considered into wash sale? 4) Can someone please provide an example with how much I would be taxed on (estimate) between both of my brokerages given the information at the top? My concern is having to pay taxes on something I lost again and again on. Any value estimate of total or advice I get from Reddit should under no circumstances be used to calculate my potential tax liability Thanks for all your help reading and answering.   submitted by   /u/teatrouble [link]   [comments]
