Strategy making a definitive buy

This is by far my greatest weakness; knowing when to buy & knowing it won't get stuck. By that, I mean will it continue to go up throughout the day or just a short uptrend leading it to downtrend? This awful weakness of mines leads me to miss many good opportunities finds on occasions. Sometimes the volume-volatility can lie to me. For example... I had two choices I could have bought today: $ABIO & RWLK. One accelerated in volume than the other. Who's to say or can determine which will boom through buying hands or not?

let me share my thoughts with you and hopefully that will enhance your trading future endeavors.

first: the first 15-30 min are tricky, you can have volume, volatility and strength and you will pick the price direction and the very next candle will reverse direction and your whole day will go in vain.

here is a tip that may help you catch good moves: the squeeze

plot a squeeze indicator that will show u compression. establish ur resistance and support, if price action fires out of the squeeze and breaks out either Support or resistance then you are likely to catch a good move. i myself miss a lotta good moves because of frustration or because i focus on the wrong stock with the wrong move. let me know what do you think

I used to to apply the ttm squeeze but it has its flaws and lags price movements tremendously.

I noticed that there is a script in this page called volatility study, it shows squeezes and the bands compressing the price.

Here is what i use myself: http://tos.mx/fOmNOe

this bb based. When the bandwidth reaches the bulge and start moving up together, the likelihood of the move to be big increases. When the bandwidth is lining up with the squeeze then, the price is in squeeze mode.

When it comes to the price direction: then u gonna have to detect whether strength, volume ans intensity are all lined up and the whole combo will give ur move. Easy to say, hard to detect. Thx

there is one called time based volume. simple to use. i am using it on daily basis.

there is one called better volume but i found a bit complicated with too many definitions and colors that can turn out not to be accurate or may lead you to the wrong direction of the trade.

btw, what your trading setup ?
