The unexpected bullish surge in US stocks over the winter caught many traders and investors by surprise—but not those of us who knew the signs to look for and prepared accordingly. When we store a varied selection of trading and investing strategies in our toolbox, we can embrace all market conditions by selecting the most profitable tools at important inflection points in the cycle. In this presentation, Ian Murphy will share his trading screens to outline two stock market strategies that have been tried and tested in real-life trades and have continuously proven their worth. Recent entry and exit points will be explored in detail with the aid of marked-up charts, and time permitting, Mr. Murphy will answer questions from attendees.

2023 was highly profitable for equity traders and investors who applied the most appropriate strategy at the right time in the market cycle. There is no reason 2024 should be any different, and now is the time to prepare for the opportunities that will undoubtedly arise in the coming year. In 30 compact minutes, Ian Murphy will introduce his two favorite daily swing trading strategies which can be profitably applied to stocks, ETFs, and futures in nearly all market conditions. He will also demonstrate two weekly trend-following strategies and explain why these four tools remain his chosen source of profit. Real examples of open positions will be shared from his screens, and time permitting, this will be followed by a Q&A session. 

Currently Ian's favorite method for generating profits, this pure play on the US stock market requires attention for just one hour a week on Friday afternoon and is ideal for part-time traders and investors. The strategy is based on stocks making new yearly highs and lows where the signals to enter and exit positions are simple to identify and require no special skills or trading platform. In this 30-minute FREE presentation, I will give a comprehensive introduction to the strategy and share some recent real-life trades executed on my own account with the aid of marked-up charts.

Introduced in 2019, this daily swing trading strategy has consistently offered traders a steady flow of bankable profits. A pure play on the US equity market, the strategy can be traded with a geared ETF which tracks the S&P500, or by leveraging the power of E-mini futures. This offers the huge advantage of not having to screen lists of stocks looking for something to trade. During this comprehensive session, Ian Murphy will introduce the strategy and explain why it remains one of his go-to money-makers with real-life examples of recently closed trades.
