We Entered $HOOD At $20.90 Today

Our trade idea for $HOOD was waiting for a 4H candle close above $20.90 to put a Limit Order in at $20.90. We are looking to allocate $80 to this trade.

During after-hours last night we did get a 4H candle close above $20.90, however with our strategy we don’t enter plays or “count” the candle closes that signal entry criteria during After-Hours or Pre-Market.

We Update All Of These Plays In Real-Time In The Discord

In the video at the top of this article you can see that we had a trade idea option for $HOOD at the $19.62 level, but the price never got that low.

It did however break above $20.90 and close a 4H candle above $20.90. So I set a limit order to buy 4 shares (as close to $80 allocation as I could get as my broker doesn’t allow fractional shares on Limit Orders). The order didn’t fill during Regular Market Hours.

Typically we would wait until Regular Market Hours to take trades with this strategy, however in this instance we decided to leave our Limit Order open during After-Hours, strictly due to some smaller timeframe analysis and overall bullish sentiment we have on $HOOD. That being said, the safer entry would be to wait until tomorrow’s regular trading hours to set a limit order at $20.90.

So right now we are in $HOOD at $20.90 entry, using 4 shares (our entire intended position. Some strategies have you buy in slowly to positions and average down, however this strategy uses high conviction Technical Analysis and Position Size Management techniques to mitigate risk instead of the buying in slow/averaging down technique. Our targets are $23.74 and $26.67 with a stop loss at $19.59.
