The following charts were all posted in real time in our telegram channel. We would like to take you through a progression in time in the precious metal sector. We will show how to evaluate, while within a trade, the quality of ones position. This for the reason to possibly readjust points for exits and stops. Measuring health allows for fine tuning ones performance and maximizing profit.
With the quad exit we are looking for various signs of the health of a move, to decide where and when to apply changes. As a beginner you preferably plan a trade ahead of time and do not change Your plan once your money is exposed. The reason for this advise is that under stress we tend to follow intuition for solutions. In a counter intuitive environment intuitive decisions are the worst choice. Once nimble enough to not follow intuitive behavior one can progress in adopting to market behavior and measuring health.
So whas signs are we looking for?
Let us examine the last reload situation. We went long Thursday the 1st of August 2019.
Daily chart Silver/US Dollar 8/1/2019, fading a retracement in the direction of the trend:

When others sell it might be time to step up and buy.
Monthly chart, silver in US Dollar – August 1st 2019, larger time frame confluence:

One always needs to know if larger players are with the direction of your trend or not. This determines likelihood of follow through on ones trade .
Silver in US Dollar – August 1st 2019, weekly chart, mid term market participants are taking a pause:

As much as the weekly chart is not necessarily supportive for our short term daily reload trade, it is also not quite against it either.
August 1st 2019, 60 minute chart, silver in US Dollar, immediate reaction of price:
Silver in US-Dollar, 60 minute chart as of Aug 1st, 2019
One of our core philosophy principles within the quad exit strategy is immediate risk mitigation through profit taking. As such the action/reaction principle is imperative. Prices quickly advancing after our entry in our desired direction, is the first and may be most important sign of health for a trade.
Measuring health, daily chart, silver in US Dollar – Financing target reached:

Once risk is of the table and one plays with the markets money, emotions change and one observes the market level headed. The next goal reached for truly being able to perceive the move is healthy.
Daily chart Silver/US Dollar 8/4/2019, no need to respond:
Silver in US-Dollar, daily chart as of Aug 4th, 2019
Since we financed into momentum and made ourselves feeling like a winner there is no restricting fears. This allows for sitting through a deep retracement the next trading day with ease. Prices progressing aggressively in the desired directions, the day after, is a sign of health and no early profit taking is required.
Gold in US Dollar – August 1st 2019, larger time frame confluence:
Gold in US-Dollar, daily chart as of Aug 4th, 2019
This is especially substantiated with gold breaking to new highs at the same time.
Measuring health, daily chart, gold in US Dollar, 8/5/2019 – Gold breaking its range and approaching the $1500 mark:
Gold in US-Dollar, daily chart as of Aug 5th, 2019
Looking for relative weakness/relative strength is a extremely helpful way to measure the health of ones instrument within a sector. Tides can change quickly.
Measuring health, daily chart, silver in US Dollar, 8/5/2019, gold stronger than silver:
Silver in US-Dollar, daily chart as of Aug 5th, 2019
While gold nicely held its range breakout and even advanced-silver bounced of the triple top distribution resistance zone. At this point considering taking partial profits from a health barometer perspective is possible depending if it is a reload position or a core potion.
August 6th 2019, daily chart, silver in US Dollar, our money on the right horse:
Silver in US-Dollar, daily chart as of Aug 7th, 2019
Already the next day silver pushed strongly through its range. It is this kind of rotation that shows that big money is at play and that we are exposed to the right instrument within the sector-health rating AAA+++
Measuring health, daily chart, silver in US Dollar, 8/9/2019, confirmation:
Silver in US-Dollar, daily chart as of Aug 9th, 2019
It is important to review ones trade in context after it is closed out. The chart above shows weakness after our exit (prices actually closed below $17 for the week). With aggressive exits on reload positions we protect capital exposed over the weekend which represents risk.
This runner produced a return of 5.86% (we posted all entries and exits in real time in our telegram channel)-this in less than a weeks time. Money exposed through time equals risk. Making good profits in short periods of time is efficient (since it frees up capital for new opportunities) and represents low risk.
Can silver run a lot further? We certainly hope so! We still have a monthly time frame exposure position.
The idea is not to pick tops and bottoms, the idea is instead of holding on for dear live which requires wide stops, to rather pick sensible target points. This allows for efficiency and in most cases with some practice, produces exits much more ideal than getting stopped out on trailing stops. By measuring the health of ones move throughout the trade one can fine tune such targets and reduce risks even further.
