Looking for potential trading setup / indicator to start


New member
Hi All,

I am new to trading, but an investor for a long time. I am trying to learn technical analysis(I know a little bit) and I enjoyed reading posts in this forum. I made few setups(ATR, M3 consolidation etc) and failed almost all trades(lost money too). I am trying to set up my dashboard and failing on the execution. I would like to request to provide a suggestion on below for my set up for intraday and short term stocks.

1) Scans for the day or potential stocks to watch before the start of the day and get alerts to trade
2) Continuous scan and alert on stocks?
3) How to identify entry-level and exists levels for security?
4) Breakout and Breakdown scans?
5) How to find momentum stocks that I entered to mitigate the loss?
6) Any options indicators.

Loss case I made using M3 Consolidation: As per the description on the indicator, I took weekly options when I see an indication for long after consolidation, but this I waited until the end of the options expiration and I lost the premium. I was wrong with this strategy.

I would like to collaborate with the new strategies that I come across in the future, but with an initial set up would help me to kick start.

Thanks in advance for your help on this!!
