Axelum Resources Corp. (AXLM) is trading at 4.32 apiece, down by 14 percent, as of 2:56PM on October 7, 2019.
It opened at 5.29 per share, registered an intraday high of 5.30, and an intraday low of 4.19.
The total turnover value is at P780.6 million. Foreign investors only registered a Net Foreign Buying worth P1.5 million.
What happened to KPPI and AXLM is a perfect example of the usual disclaimer, “Past performance does not guarantee future returns.”
It’s not an apple-to-apple comparison but you get what I mean as far as trading IPOs is concerned.
It is for this reason that I treat every trade as a unique trade.
When things like this happens, it’s all the more that you appreciate knowing how to respect risk management in your strategy. Use a trailing stop always.
Last Price: 4.28
Most Traded: 5.29 – 4.87
Most Voluminous: 5.29 – 4.87
This 5.29 is a standalone dominant price point. Removing it from the range, the dominant range will be 4.50 to 4.90. This is closer to the intraday low than the intraday high. This means the descent in price is more likely to continue. This is far from what I saw on KPPI’s first day in the Philippine Stock Exchange.

If you did a test-buy on AXLM, I suggest that you stick to your trailing stop. Be reminded that the descent in price is more likely to continue.
If you don’t have AXLM, continue staying on the sidelines for now. Do a test-buy once the dominant range is already closer to the intraday high than the intraday low. Then, calculate your trailing stop the moment you entered a new position. You can use this Trailing Stop calculator.
