Interviews with A Finalist of SG Active Trading Tournament: Justin Tay

Interviews with A Finalist of SG Active Trading Tournament: Justin Tay

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

This post was originally posted here. 

Today we have Justin, who is a Top 10 Finalist in the ongoing Final Round of the SG Active Trading Tournament, trading under his moniker @gangel. He has risen to the Top 10 by beating 2,000 other participants of the tournament.

gangel

We asked the following questions and this is what he had to say:

How many years have you been trading and which markets do you usually trade?

Justin: I have been trading for 6 years, mainly focused on SGX. Just started US market and HK market recently due to the higher liquidity.

What’s your profession?

Justin: I am currently in my final year of my PhD studies. I am also a licensed pharmacist and work part time in one of the retail pharmacy chains.

Wow, that’s impressive! How did you start trading and what got you started? 

Justin: I started trading under the influence of my dad, who gave me a small start up capital to trade. He taught me some basic trading tips like price action and volume. From there I went on to learning how to do some basic chart and learn about some indicators. Some of which I have adopted ever since.

So what’s your usual trading plan like?

Justin: Usually I will decide on how big I want to trade, whether I have the capital to pick up or just playing contra before entering a trade. I like to make use of the GTM/GTD function so that my lots will be in the front of the queue. I also tend to queue slightly below the resistance zone so it has a higher chance of getting filled.

Then how do you usually determine an entry for a particular trade?

Justin: I do so by identifying support zones either through trendline support, moving average support so forth or wait 1 day bounce off from support zone for confirmation. On top of that, I will also try to look for signs of reversal with some of the indicators to convince myself to go in for the trade.

How do you usually determine an exit for a particular trade?

Justin: I do so usually by identifying resistance zones, either by historical high or trendline resistance. or when the tides change very suddenly.

As this tournament focuses on trading Daily Leverage Certificates (DLC), what is your experience trading DLC? 

Justin: It’s like a double-edged sword: it can magnify your profits or losses very quickly.

Finally, what would you say to new traders who want to trade well?

Justin: It’s really important to start from the basics of support and resistance, learn how to read the graphs and prepare to stop loss if the trade do not go in your favour. Once the price has moved up from your entry price, can consider doing a trailing stop loss strategy to reduce your losses.

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.
