A few posts back, I discussed ‘echo trades’.

Find a stock in a clearly defined uptrend, wait for a pullback, and when the uptrend shows a continuation, jump on board.

Since that post, I have put into place a better method of trend analysis.

The following graphs of Regeneron (REGN) should be a good illustration.

As in all my illustrations, Green vertical lines indicate Buying points. Red vertical lines indicate Selling points and Blue illustrates Close position.

The weekly graph represents the long-term direction. In this case, REGN since June 2021 has been in an upward trending direction.

The trading decision however should be made in a shorter time frame. In the following picture of REGN DAILY, it should be clear that, although the long-term direction is up, the shorted term direction has been down. The long position created in August was closed in September.
