This lock-up method requires investors to understand a simple method of judging the oscillating market. For example, according to the arrangement of the moving average system, if the moving average system is unclear, it can be defined as an oscillating market. In the volatile market, if there is a long position at the bottom of the box, when the market reaches the top of the box, an equal amount of short positions can be opened to lock in the original long position profit. If there is a short position at the top of the box, when the market reaches the bottom of the box, you can open an equal amount of long positions to lock in the profits of the original short positions.

But it should be noted that the number of locks in the oscillating market should be limited, because the market will not be endlessly flat, and once the trend is clear, it should be unlocked in time.

Everything has pros and cons. It is best not to lock the position, but it may not be undesirable to lock the position. Both orders will charge a cost fee. Generally, it is not recommended to lock the warehouse. Although the lock is simple, it is difficult to unlock. However, once the market breaks (falls below) the key resistance level (support level) in the market, it must stop the loss (or lock the position).
