Is a 90% return in ONE SINGLE trade in a week even possible?

Is a 90% return in ONE SINGLE trade in a week even possible?

Yes it apparently is.

Sometime last week, one of the participants with the username @minci in the SG Active Trading Tournament had a 92.80% return in ONE SINGLE trade.

Interviews with Top of the Tournament Leaderboard: Landon Lim

Interviews with Top of the Tournament Leaderboard: Landon Lim

Interviews with Top of the Tournament Leaderboard

This mini-interview series is to showcase some of the prominent participants of the tournament leaderboard and what propels them to be able to trade well.

This post was originally posted here.

leaderboardx

This is @LandonLim, who made the leaderboard and had a top winning trade on 14 Oct! View his winning trade here.

How many years have you been trading?

Landon: I’ve been investing/trading for 4 Years now.

What’s your profession?
Landon: I’m a Relationship Manager.

How did you start trading and what got you started?
Landon: I started investing/trading when I decided to grow my savings. However, I had no experience or knowledge, and I placed $10,000 on an illiquid penny stock for my first trade without understanding anything about the company or stock chart movement/signals. I managed to exit my position 2 months later with a paltry gain of $70 (0.7% Return).

Thankfully, that unwise trade did not turn sour for me as the share price has fallen 50% from the time I exited, and I would have undoubtably stopped believing in investing or learning about it.

Can you share more about your trading plan?
Landon: I am actually more of a fundamental investor by nature who also uses some technical analysis (TA) in his trades. For my own portfolio strategy, I shortlist the companies that I want to buy (using FA) and try to time the buys using TA to achieve better Risk/Return ratios.
However, for this tournament I’m purely using simple Technical Analysis, mainly Ichimoku Cloud/Moving Averages/Fibonacci Retracements/Trend Momentums/Breakout patterns/Support and Resistance levels/MACD Indicators/RSI.

How do you usually determine an entry for a particular trade?
Landon: A combination of the above methods that I’ve mentioned. However, buying on retracement support levels, breakout patterns, bullish Ichimoku Cloud signals, and oversold RSI have a greater emphasis.

How do you usually determine an exit for a particular trade? 
Landon: Usually when the volume seems to be dying, along with clear ichimoku cloud/RSI/Fibonacci retracement and Death Cross signals.

What would you say to new traders who want to trade well? 

Landon: Have a systematic trading plan and set your stop loss to a smaller % than your targeted gains. After that, it is just a numbers game, you just need to win more than you lose.

Also, Fibonacci Retracements. At the 61.8% levels. The longer the time frame, the better.

What is a Daily Leverage Certificate (DLC)?

Daily Leverage Certificates (DLC) are exchange-traded financial products that enable investors to take a leveraged exposure to an Underlying Asset, such as an equity index or a single stock (Full list of DLCs). Daily Leverage Certificates replicate the performance of an Underlying Asset versus its previous day closing level, with a fixed leverage factor.

There are two types of Daily Leverage Certificates – Daily Long and Daily Short which enable investors to take a long or short exposure to an Underlying Asset.

Getting Started: what can you do with a DLC?

Long DLCs allow you to generate leveraged gains when the Underlying Asset goes up. On the other hand, Short DLCs increase in value when the Underlying Asset goes down, allowing investors to achieve positive and leveraged gains during market downturn.

Example: 5x Long DBS 

5x Long DBS is at S$2. Buy 500 shares of this DLC with S$1000 when DBS is at S$25.

DBS goes up from S$25 to S$25.5, i.e. up 2%.

5x Long DBS will go up from S$2 to S$2.2, i.e. up by 2% x 5 = 10% compared to the previous day close.

Example: 5x Short Tencent 

5x Short Tencent is at S$1. Buy 1,000 shares of this DLC with S$1,000 when Tencent is at HK$300.

Tencent goes up from HK$300 to HK$309, i.e. up by 3%.

5x Short DLC will go down from S$1 to $0.85, i.e. down by 3% x 5 = 15% compared to the previous day close.

How to identify a DLC?

For example, a 5x DLC with DBS as an underlying would be known as DLC SG5xLong DBS, with the following ticker DOXW.

Read this for more details on how DLC works.
