Stock Trade Idea Disclosures:

📈 Methodology: Technical Analysis of Volume Spread Analysis. Volume Spread Analysis (VSA) is a form of technical analysis that attempts to look into price action in relation to volume. VSA is the study of the market forces of supply and demand and the manipulation of those forces through the psychology of crowd behavior.

🎯 Stock Target Profit (TP) Revision Policy is revised daily: Changes of the TP stocks are based on the previous high or price resistance at peak levels usually at 1 month-high, 3 months high, 1 week high. Eg. if there is a change in 1-week high overnight, TP will be revised to this new price.

Stock price and volume are updated during the trading day but the TP is updated after market closes.

  • R1 = resistance 1 refer to the shortest timeframe TP at 1 week high or 1 mth high whichever higher price.
  • R2 = resistance 2 refer to the longer timeframe RP at 1 mth high or 3 mth high whichever higher price.
  • S1 = support 1 refer to the shortest timeframe Cut Loss (CL) level at 1 week low or 1 mth low whichever lower price.
  • S2 = support 2 refer to the longer timeframe Cut Loss (CL) level at 1 mth low or 3 mth low whichever lower price.

Limitation of Algorithm

  • Reduced Effectiveness in Trendless Individual stock chart and overall Index Stock Markets: Without clear trends, it will affect the responsiveness of the Pentagon Guider® System in plotting the RED and GREEN Pentagon indicators.
  • Increased Signal Noise: Increased noise/randomness in daily or weekly timeframes complicates analysis in trendless conditions.
  • Stock charts that have Insufficient Volume: Example, trading with continuous bar of zero volume will give raise to inaccurate Pentagon Guider® System indicators.
  • Stock charts with less than 6 months period of trading bars - provide insufficient data for Pentagon Guider® System Algorithm to compute/calculate.

Risk inherent in the use of technology algorithms.

  • Stock Market Adaptability Risk: Pentagon Guider® System will have limitation to adapt quickly to sudden, non-trend-based stock market movements, which could lead to potential losses.
