“Your knowledge and ability to execute consistently profitable trades throughout the day is like nothing I have come across yet.” – Casey Phelan
Hit & Run Setups is an alert service that is focused on hit and run setups and other trading setups. See the description to the left and below.
Number of Setups per Session: There will be an average of 3-5 setups per session. These Hit & Run Setups occur often throughout the session but we will be focused on sticking to the quality setups, based on bigger picture context, giving each setup a better opportunity to result in a potential runner.
Risk: Risk on ES trades will never be more than 12 ticks or 3 points. Risk on CL trades will never be more than 22 ticks. Risk is specific to each setup and will vary, often being much less than the maximum designated risk. Sometimes 2 risk spots will be given. The first being aggressive risk the second being conservative risk.
Targets: Hit & run setups are designed to expect an IMMEDIATE reaction at the entry point with very little heat upon entry. Once 10 + ticks ITM for CL or 8 + ticks / 2 + points ITM for ES profits are expected to be taken with the option of positions going open risk off and looking for RUNNERS.
Market Context & Directional Bias: These are extremely important in everything we do and will be touched on throughout the session, thus helping to keep you on the profitable side of direction with a thorough understanding of current context.
Session Times: Main: 8 AM CT CL Pit Open - 10:30 CT European close. Secondary: If there is decent enough volatility the session may extend until the 3 PM CT U.S. cash close.
Why this Service: In my 20 + years of trading the one thing I've found that most people want is ALERTS (fish) vs learning how to fish. This is an opportunity to provide alerts (fish), while also teaching how to find these hit and run setups.
Trade Alert Examples: Trade alerts will look like this in Discord. L ES 4524.5 R 4522. S CL 77.28 R 77.37. For an alert with an aggressive risk and conservative risk it will look like this: L ES 4524.5 AR 4522 CR 4521.5
Learning: We have a channel in Discord dedicated to annotated charts showing the why behind each setup posted so you can learn to find these on your own.
