Stock Trading Lessons for Beginnners – Module 3 – TRT-POV


Stock Trading Lessons for Beginners is part of the Continuous Education element of my advocacy, Responsible Trading.  In this connection, I am pleased to share these with you. All these lessons are shared without cost to you.  All of these are free.

For your proper guidance, whenever I post the video from Cloud9 Media Limited, the title of my article will end with – Video.  Whenever I post my own, my article will end with – TRT-POV.

Ok, let’s go to  Module 3



After viewing this video, you should now  know the following:

1. Why do you need to identify a trend
2. The different kinds of trend and what distinguishes one from the other
3. Support and Resistance and what Role Reversal means
4. Trendlines and how to draw them



1. A trend is the core of all of technical analysis. Knowing the trend gives you an edge in your trading.

2. In addition to the 3 directions of trend, a trend has 3 degrees:

a. Major trend – anything over six months

b. Intermediate or secondary tend –  three weeks to three months

c. Near term trend – anything less than two to  three weeks.

3. Prices move in a series of peaks and troughs, and the direction of those peaks and troughs determine the trend of the market. The  peaks and troughs also represent Support and Resistance.

4. Once a Resistance or Support level is broken, its role is reversed. If the price falls below a Support level, that level will become Resistance. If the price rises above a Resistance level, it will often become Support.

5. A trend line is always straight. The price should touch the trend line at least 3 times to confirm that the trend line is valid.

3. After posting this video, I expect you  to view and try to understand the topic discussed and  to compare what I am sharing with what you have  learned. plus your own personal research.   We will repeat the whole process until we finish the whole course.

4.  Learning is better when done in short durations with breaks in between. The learning curve looks like this.

Rate of learning starts slowly then gradually builds up where it becomes fun and enjoyable. After reaching a certain level it  decelerates to the point of boredom.

If you divide your study periods into shorter durations with breaks in-bteween, you are going to double the point where learning is fun and enjoyable and you will be able to retain more materials in your brain.
