Welcome!

Firstly, thank you so much for showing interest in our charting community. However you found us, we’re delighted to see you here, so that we can help you navigate the markets and make more informed investment decisions.

Launched on Monday May 3rd 2021, this site is the culmination of collaborative work between Northstar (Kevin Wadsworth) and Badcharts (Patrick Karim).

  • We both have a strong presence on Twitter, but found that we were getting asked many times for charts that we’d already done in the recent past.
  • It can be very difficult to find what you’re looking for on social media generally.
  • This site provides you with much easier access to all of our charts, searchable by category or tag.
  • Most high value actionable charts will be posted here and not available anywhere else.
  • Our social media accounts will continue, but this site will be the ‘jewel in our crown’ where we showcase our best work.
  • Our charting styles are distinct from each other, but, we feel, complimentary to each other.
  • We make no attempt to ‘synchronize’ our charts so that they tell the same story.
  • It’s better (we think) that our work remains uncompromised, giving you the benefit of both our perspectives.

As much as we would like to answer every question posted, it is, of course, not possible. We do read them though, and will answer as, and when, we can. If there is a common theme/question/problem/request, rest assured we will react accordingly.

As the site develops, we’d like to encourage a ‘community feel’, with members having discussions around the topics raised by the charts.

From time to time, either one of us will take a week or two away from the screen to enjoy some family time/holiday/vacation. The beauty is that with two of us here, the site will always be updated regardless.

We are both technical analysts (not financial advisors), so cannot give individual investment advice.

Please use our charts as they’re intended – to help you make properly informed decisions, helping you to weigh up the evidence and stack the odds in YOUR favour. That’s what it’s all about really – nobody knows the future with 100% certainty, but these charts, taken as a whole, should keep you on the right track – navigating the ups and downs of these turbulent markets.

Happy investing.

Kevin & Patrick

Risk and money management (with Performance Dashboard)

Beginners Guide – Risk and money management

 This is a dynamic dashboard. Indicators are updated LIVE as we update the Trade Tracker tables.

We learnt many years ago the importance of using proper risk vs reward and money management to better structure trades. Position sizing should equate to a max acceptable loss of your TOTAL net asset value, also known as NAV.

We created a new table for Trade Tracker, Swing Trades, Trade Tracker PLUS (which now includes Trade Tracker “Candidates”).

These tables have new metrics which can help you better understand the nuances in choosing a stock to play.

  • Risk vs Reward profiling
  • How this fits to the Star system
  • Estimated increase in per 100K NAV tranches (or loss)
  • And much more insightful information.

We now also have the ability to create dynamically updated charts and graphs based on those Trader Tracker tables.

Initial Position Sizing based on “Star Rating (Entry Date)”

  • 5 stars 2%
  • 4 stars 1%
  • 3 stars 0.5%
  • 2 stars 0.25%
  • 1 stars 0.25%
  • Swing Trades (any stars) 0.25%
  • Trade Tracker “Candidates” (any stars) 0.25%

Scale in process: Possibility to add more risk % on top of a position.

  • Any stars that gains a 5th star, NEW position size to fill out delta to 2%.
  • We’ll create an extra row in Trade Trackers to represent new entry date, entry price, stop-loss, profit-limit for the delta in risk % added.
  • We might decide NOT to add a position, and amounts of risk can vary depending on current weight of evidence.
  • Position size must be adapted to your NAV if you wish to use these metrics as guidelines.

Here is an example of applied risk and money management to structure a trade.

Notes about the Trade Tracker PLUS:

1- Give PREMIUM PLUS members some vision of what the possible risk vs reward setups would look like IF price closes above the final breakout line , usually this is 5th star, but sometimes the 4th.
2- Currently the LIVE Charts “candidates” and “ratios” are covered in this table.
3- Active positions are displayed in the Trade Tracker and not the Trade Tracker PLUS.
