MOMENTUM TRADING COURSE
1) MOMENTUM TRADING STRATEGIES
Many people have the perception that momentum trading strategies are risky and hard. We’ve heard people say that this style of trading is like gambling but this couldn’t be further from the truth. We’d argue that the more that you keep your money in the market the more you’re actually gambling because the market is unpredictable. However, investing in the stock market regardless of whether it’s stocks, options, or mutual funds, without a proper strategy is like gambling.
Momentum trading is a routined strategy that becomes more predictable the more that you become comfortable. It’s all about the technicals. Once you learn the technical analysis of stocks and learn the proper risk management strategies then you’ll know how to become a successful momentum trader.
The best momentum traders in the world only make winning trades around 60% of the time but they know how to put the odds in their favor with proper risk management strategies.
Watch our Penny Stock Trading momentum trading course video to help you get started.
Read our Day Trading Strategies that work post.
2) HOW TO MANAGE RISK
Managing risk is one of the most important aspects to momentum trading. If you aren’t careful with risk management then you could lose a lot of money. It’s important to have at least a 2:1 profit/loss ratio on every trade otherwise you won’t be able to be a successful momentum trader long term.
Watch our video on Trading Risk Management and learn how to set up proper risk management techniques when trading.
Read our Trading Risk Management post.

MOMENTUM TRADING STRATEGIES – WATCH LIST
5) HOW TO CREATE A WATCHLIST
If you want to become a successful momentum trader then it’s important to create a watchlist that you track during the pre-market and also during market hours to find trades to make. In this momentum trading course video we show you how to create your watchlist using the ThinkorSwim platform.
If you don’t have the time to build a nightly watchlist then you’ll want to invest in Trade Ideas to make the process much quicker and easier. Each morning you could just click on the “pre-market movers” with Trade Ideas and you’ll see what stocks are moving in the pre-market, which will save you the time of building a nightly watchlist.
Purchase Trade Ideas Here! Make sure to enter “BULLISHBEARS15” (all caps) at checkout to receive your one-time 15% discount.
We still recommend building a nightly watchlist along with Trade Ideas because there may be potential plays on your watchlist which may be different than Trade Ideas, so having both will make you really prepared before the market opens.

6) LONG v SHORT
The stock market consists of a non-stop battle between the bulls vs bears. The bulls are the “longs” and the bears are the “shorts.” This video explains how to take both the long and short sides of stocks using our daily watch list.
Watch our Long and Short Positions video.
Read our Long vs Short post.
7) SHORT SELLING
Short selling is much easier than traders might think. The concept of shorting is extremely misunderstood amongst traders that aren’t familiar with the concept. Many people believe that shorting is risky and you could lose all of your money.
This is only true if one isn’t familiar with how shorting works. It’s important to have your proper risk management strategies and stop losses in place before entering into any trade.
If you follow the same process with shorting then this trading style could be more rewarding and less risky than making regular momentum trades once you master it. The top brokers for shorting are Interactive Brokers, Speed Trader, and Centerpoint.
In this video we break down the process of shorting a stock and we show you the process on how to short a stock.
Watch our Short Selling Stocks video.
