TA Challenge: Left-side vs right-side trading. Which trading style suits you?
Left-side trading: Attempts to forecast market shifts
Left-side trading is about making your move near the relative highs or lows, using forecasts to decide when to buy or sell. Those who trade on the left side look to buy just before the market drops to its lowest level for the period observed or sell just before it reaches its highest. They lean on deep market analysis, records of past market behavior, economic signals, and fundamental analysis to try and act just before trends take a turn.

Right-side trading: Go with the flow
Right-side trading, on the other hand, is about patience, waiting for a clear sign of where the market may be headed. Right-side traders rely heavily on technical analysis and ride the market's trends and momentum. It's about joining in as the prices begin their ascent from the bottom or stepping out as they descend from their peak. It's a strategy less about forecasting and more about acting on what's happening in the market right now.

3 | Pros and cons to weigh
Left-side trading
✔️ Pros: Left-side trading gives traders the potential advantage of entering the market before others, which can lead to considerable gains if they accurately identify a market reversal. This strategic positioning can possibly yield impressive profits.
❌ Cons: However, pinpointing the exact highs and lows of stock trends is demanding and requires deep analysis. The chances of making such precise predictions are minimal, and the associated risks are high. Setting technical stop losses is also complex, as it's influenced by personal risk preferences and the particulars of the trade, often leading to sub-optimal stop losses. Most investors tend to cling to their positions, waiting for the market to shift, which may be a lengthy process.
Right-side trading
✔️ Pros: Trading with the trend on the right side rather than the left generally lowers risk as it avoids the need to identify market turns. It's based on following clear trends and the market's momentum, which can lessen the stress of misreading the market's direction. After the trend is verified, traders can usually set a definitive stop loss level, which is essential for managing risk.
❌ Cons: The trade-off is potentially lost profits from the initial stages of a market turnaround. Also, abrupt market shifts can cause quick financial losses. Additionally, poor liquidity in various market scenarios can alter the timing and expenses associated with entering or leaving positions.
4 | Which one is for you?
Left-side trading is intricate and ideally suited for teams in institutions or market-making entities. It might not be ideal for individual retail traders because of the expertise and attention it demands. In contrast, right-side trading is less complex, with straightforward stop loss and entry points for more stable potential returns. Each style brings its own set of characteristics. The best fit depends on the individual trader's skill and investment goals.
5 | Key indicators for each trading style
Left-side trading
This tactic is referred to as left-side trading because it involves placing trades before the cyclical market tops or bottoms. Early moves can be informed through fundamental analysis, while oscillators like the RSI and KDJ, along with the Fibonacci tool, can be used for additional analysis.
Right-side trading
This tactic is termed right-side trading since it involves entering trades after the cycle's highs or lows. This approach often uses trend indicators such as moving averages and MACD, as well as chart patterns, for deeper analysis.
