  1. Types of Trading Styles

TGS generates signals for 3 types of traders, viz.

a. Positional (for few weeks)

b. Swing (for few days)

c. Intraday (for few hours)

Positional signals are generated on all F&O stocks with a stop-loss of 1.5% to 6%. Positional signals are suitable for those who wish to take positions for a few weeks. Positional traders are interested in making profits from the primary trend rather than day to day fluctuations. Stop-loss revision mechanism is slow to capture larger price momentum.

Swing signals are generated on all F&O stocks, 3 Indices, 4 currencies and 9 commodities with a stop-loss of 1% to 5%. Swing signals are suitable for those who wish to take positions for a few days.  Swing traders are interested in short term trends and price momentum. Stop-loss revision mechanism is fast to en-cash substantial gains from price momentum.

Intraday Signals are generated on all F&O stocks, 3 Indices, 4 currencies and 9 commodities with a stop-loss of 0.05% to 1.5%. Intraday signals are suitable for those who wish to trade and exit on the same day.

The signals are generated after 30 minutes of market open. No new signals are generated 30 minutes prior to market closed and timeout exit occurs 15 minutes prior to market closed.

  1. Types of Signals

TradeGuide generates actionable signals on multiple assets like equities, commodities and currencies.

The signals are classified as follows:

Buy (Green)

Buy Exit (White)

Sell (Red)

Sell Exit (White)

Exit Signals Window displays a consolidated list of buy/sell exit signals.

  1. What is TradeGuide Trader Test?

It is very important for a trader to know his trading style-whether he is a positional (few weeks), swing (few days) or intraday (few hours) trader. TGS Trader Test enables identification of one’s trading style. It analyses a trader’s personality on 7 factors and gives a complete snapshot of his/her strengths and weaknesses.

In every window, the following columns can be found.

Only a few default columns are visible. To Add /Remove columns, right click to see the full list.

  1. Signal Generation

There are 6 ways you will be notified on signal generation:

Refresh, Show All, Full Screen and Save Layout.

  1. Trendicator

TradeGuide Signal has one more unique feature called ‘Trendicator’. This shows the current trend of the market in the short, medium and long term. It can be understood by seeing the number of open positions in each trading style and their buy/sell percentage.

  1. Advance Charting Tools

Open colorful chart for any stock by double clicking on a stock name. The chart is divided into three parts- Green indicates buy signal, white indicates ‘No trading zone’ and red indicates sell signal.

The yellow and purple lines on the chart are trailing stop-loss. When price hits the trailing stop-loss, exit signal is generated

Trading Planner can be accessed by clicking on the tab next to ‘Signals’. It allows you to create and personalize your trading plan.

    1. Prefilled Order Window Setting

In the Signal Tracker, we saw that a prefilled order window opens when a signal is generated. Here you can choose for which signals and trading styles you wish to open an order window.

    1. Exit Method

In Exit method, there are three ways of defining exit under TradeGuide Signal:

  1. Risk Reward Method

Using Risk Reward Multiple (RR) e.g. If Risk: Reward is 2 times and entry stop loss is set at 3%, the trade will exit when there is a profit of 6% i.e. 2 times of stop loss.

  1. Profit % Method

If you decide that you wish to exit at a fixed profit%, stop loss being irrelevant, set the target percentage where you wish to exit.

  1. Trend Following Method

Under trend following, the trade exits when the system generates an exit signal. If this method is used, the target in the signal tracker will show as ‘0’. By default, this method is selected.

    1. Position Sizing

A very important part of the trading plan is Position Sizing. An organized trader always knows how much he has to trade.

If you use a dealer terminal, position size can be set individually for all your clients by entering their client code.
