What's The Best Stock Volume To Trade? Timothy Sykes Breaks It Down!

Today I'm gonna talk about what is the best volume to trade.. I get this question. All the time. Stick: around. ( upbeat music ). What's up Tim Sykes, millionaire, mentor and trader here? Answering your questions.

, So many people like ugh, So many people message me what is the best volume to trade. Now every stock every set up is slightly different.. You have to look at the catalyst, the flow, the marketplace environment, the time of day.

All this stuff matters. But for me I look at volume also., I don't wan na trade, a stock, no matter how good the news is. If the daily volume is only like 50 thousand shares., That means that there's, not a lot of activity.

. How do I say If you want a stock to move? If you want to play a stock, that is, you know, volatile. You need a lot of activity.. You need ideally some news, a catalyst whether it's, a press release or the stock is hitting a key level or ideally, a press release and a key level.

It does no good if a company just has a good news or a good story.. Every stock has this amazing technology. Oh this amazing product.. If people don't believe it if they're, not interested in trading the stock, it's, not gonna move that much.

, You can hold onto a stock for weeks months, maybe even years waiting for anything to happen.. You know most every single penny stock will disappoint. You., Almost every single management will lie to you and they'll, say everything's amazing.

. But if the stock is not moving it's, not amazing.. I want to trade stocks that are in play., So under 50 thousand shares on the day traded. I don't care. If it's, five dollar stock or a two dollar stock.

It's too illiquid. Liquidity is the word here.. I want a liquid stock., So I want ideally a stock trading. You know one million two million, maybe three or five million shares on the day.. That way, if I buy or sell five thousand ten thousand shares there's plenty of liquidity.

. I'm. Just a small fraction. You don't wan na be more than one percent of the volume, because then, if the stock is moving around a lot - and you have a big positioning, you might not be able to get in or out very easily.

. That's called slippage.. You might wan na try to sell the stock at five dollars a share, but because you have such a big positioning, let's say if you're, like 20 percent of the daily volume, you might not get five dollars a share.

You might have to get out at four dollars and 50 cents a share, because you have such a big positioning. You selling brings the price down., So I wan na trade liquid stocks, but I also don't wanna trade, overly liquid stocks.

. A lot of traders love these stocks that trade 40 50 100 million shares in a day.. Those are like the biggest marijuana stocks right now: CBD stocks. They're hot. Before it was bitcoin and crypto and blockchain.

Before that it was Ebola and police equipment and nanotech and biotech and medical I mean in mobile internet. There's, been so many hot sectors. In the hottest stocks. In the penny stock marketplace, low price stocks, trade 50, 100 200 million shares in a day that's too much for me.

, Because when it trades that much it's, a very choppy stock.. It's up it's down it's all over the place., A lot of traders who just trade. The volatility like that choppiness I don't.. I like clean charts.

If you've seen my DVDs, I like crystal clear breakouts.. I like crystal clear breakdowns., I, like simple stuff, one of my haters actually wrote to me and he was like & quot Tim. I'm. Looking at all your DVDs & quot, I'm.

Looking at all these charts & quot, They're, such for like child's. Play. & quot, Like lem me know when you're a man and & quot. You're ready for some real charts. & quot, And I was like & quot. I don't.

Think I'll ever be a man then. & quot. I prefer it easier. This is not some Olympic diving competition where you get a degree of difficulty on your dive. Like the South Korean judge, says it's a 9.9. I can't dive.

I don't even like putting my head under water. I, like simple stuff. In the simplest patterns in the simplest rules, work the best for low price stock.. So I don't like truly choppy stocks. I don't like the most popular stocks they gyrate too much.

I can't manage my risk.. I, like a few million shares traded per day.. That said, if I'm trading, a stock at let's, say 10 a.m. eastern and the stock marketplace has just been opened for 30 minutes.. It's very difficult for a stock to have a million shares traded in just 30 minutes.

, So some people are confused.. They're, like & quot Tim in your DVDs. You say you like & quot, a million or two shares traded per day. & quot. Yes, but when the marketplace is only open for a half hour, you have to kind of extrapolate.

What is it gonna trade over the course of the day.? In the first half hour it might only trade 50 thousand shares or 100 or 200 thousand shares.. By the day's ended it'll, still trade, a million or two, but people are confused when I trade a stock with a hundred or two hundred thousand shares near the marketplace.

Open. Near the marketplace, open it doesn't matter. If there's, not a lot of volume, because again you're. Looking at a small slice of time. Judge everything based on what you think the stock is gonna trade at the end of the day.

. Ideally, it's, a few million shares.. If it's only like five thousand shares at the day end there's, no play.. If there's, fifty million shares traded at day's end. Usually I'll stay away unless the catalyst is really great.

. I have a sweet spot that I've learned over the past two decades.. You too will learn what volume you like.. You might like stocks, that trade 50 million shares.. That's fine.. For me, I've found my sweet spot and I stick to it because it made me a freakin'multimillionaire.

. Today I'm going to talk about what is the best volume to trade. I get this question all the time. Stick around what's up Tim, Seitz, millionaire, mentor and trader here. Answering your questions. So many people like oh so many people message me what is the best volume to trade now every stock every setup is slightly different.

You have to look at the catalyst, the float, the marketplace environment the time of day all this stuff matters. But for me I look at volume. Also, I don't want to treat a song, no matter how good the news is.

If the daily volume is only like 50,000 shares. That means that there's, not a lot of activity. How do I say if you want a stock to move? If you want to play a stock, that is, you know, volatile. You need a lot of activity.

You need ideally some news, a catalyst whether it's, a press release or the stock is hitting a key level or ideally, a press release and a key level. It does no good if a company just has a good news or a good story.

Every stock has oh, this amazing technology. Oh this amazing product! If people don't believe it if they're, not interested in trading the stock, it's, not going to move that much! You can hold on to a stock for weeks months, maybe even years waiting for anything to happen.

You know almost every single penny stock will disappoint you. Almost every single management will lie to you and they'll, say everything's, amazing, but if the stock is not moving it's, not amazing. I want to trade stocks that are in play, so under 50,000 shares on the day traded.

I don't care if it's, a $ 5 stock or $ 2 stock. It's too illiquid liquidity is the word here. I want a liquid stock, so I want ideally a stock trading. You know 1 million 2 million, maybe 3 or 5 million shares on the day.

That way, if I buy or sell 5,000 10,000 shares there's, plenty of liquidity. I'm. Just a small fraction, you don't want to be more than one percent of the volume because then, if the stock is moving around a lot - and you have a big positioning, you might not be able we get in or out very easily.

That's called slippage, so you might want to try to sell the stock at five dollars a share, but because you have such a big positioning, let's say if you're, like twenty percent of the daily volume, You might not get five dollars a share.

You might have to get out at four dollars and fifty cents a share, because you have such a big positioning. You selling brings the price down, so I want to trade liquid stocks, but I also don't want to trade, overly liquid stocks.

A lot of traders love these socks that trade 40 50 a hundred million shares in a day. Those are like the biggest marijuana stocks right now: CBD stocks, they're, they're hot before it was Bitcoin and crypto and blockchain before that it was a bola and police equipment and nanotech and biotech and medical I mean in mobile Internet there's.

There's, been so many hot sectors in the hottest stocks in the penny stock marketplace, low price stocks, trade 50. A hundred two hundred million shares in a day that's too much for me, because when it trades that much it's, a very choppy stock, it's up it's down it'S all over the place, a lot of traders who just trade the volatility like that choppiness I don't.

I like clean charts. If you've, seen my DVDs, I like crystal clear breakouts. I like crystal clear breakdowns. I, like simple stuff, one of my haters actually wrote to me and he was like Tim. I I'm. Looking at all your DVDs, I'm.

Looking at all these charts, they're. They're, such they're, such for, like child's play like. Let me know when you're a man and you're ready for some real charts, and I was like I don't. Think I'll ever be a man then, like I prefer it easier like this is not some Olympic diving competition where, like you, get a degree of difficulty on your dive, like in the South Korean judge, says it's.

A nine point: nine, I you know I can't dive. I don't even like putting my head underwater. I, like simple stuff in the simplest patterns and the simplest rules, work the best for low price stocks. So I don't like truly choppy stocks.

I don't like the most popular Sox they gyrate too much. I can't manage my risk. I, like a few million shares traded per day. That said, if I'm, treating a socket, let's, say 10:00 a.m. Eastern and the stock marketplace has just been open for 30 minutes.

It's very difficult for a stock to have a million shares traded in just 30 minutes. So some people are confused or, like Tim, DVDs, you say you like a million or two shares treated per day. Yes, but when the marketplace is only open for a half-hour, you have to kind of extrapolate.

What is it going to trade over the course of the day in the first half hour? It might only trade 50,000 shares or a hundred or two hundred thousand shares, but the day's end. It'll, still trade, a million or two, but people are confused when I treat a stock with a hundred or two hundred thousand shares near the marketplace open near the marketplace, open it doesn't matter.

If there's, not a lot of volume, because again you're. Looking at a small slice of time, judge everything based on what you think the stock is going to trade at the end of the day. Ideally, it's, a few million shares if it's only like five thousand shares of the day end there's no play.

If there's, 50 million shares traded at day's end. Usually I'll stay away unless the catalyst is really great. I have a sweet spot that I've learned over the past two decades. You too will learn what volume you like, you might like stocks, that trade 50 million shares.

That's, fine. For me, I found my sweet spot and I stick to it because it made me a multi-millionaire leave a comment just below this video. Let's, see what you like. Let's, see what you think about this video, hey Tim, Seitz, millionaire, mentor and trader.
