Looks like good advice :)



I want you to be totally honest and really think about this...What are 3 main reasons why trading is "burning a hole in your pocket" ?

I think that you mostly know what you should be doing but I suspect that there is probably only just a few things that if you could zero in on it would be the difference that makes the difference in terms of the few mistakes that contribute most to dollar losses.

The past year I haven't been losing $$ but I still have in a way.
I've been losing time. Time is money, money is time. Time with Wife, Kids, family, ect. because of having to continue working 10hrs a day and spending large amounts of time studying the markets. (instead of myself)

1. Fear of losing (not being right/failing)
2. Greed (wanting it now)
3. Psychological damage from over leverage before having a "set in stone" trading plan and confidence I will act in my own best interest no matter what the situation.

ONE class with Insanity Industries Trading School (the homework), Opened my eyes to something M.O. posted a couple years ago about re-investing profits, and making space. Adding profit to either stop size OR lot position size.

I've found IT.

A much read, underlined, and highlighted yet long lost quote by Mightyone. 3/2009
I present to you THE Trading Bible!

[quote="MightyOne"]Prices rise and fall by HUNDREDS of pips every day and some how most
every one cannot figure out how to make even 1% per day.

I just dont get it, I really don't :?

So I am going to lay out the frame work for profiting in a such a way
that can be accomplished by anyone:

1. Which way is price likely to move in the long term (more on this later).

2. How small can I make my stops (you would be surprised)

3. Risking 1% per trade/chart enter with the momentum of the small time frame.

4. Exit all when you feel that price is likely to reverse and add that profit to your SL amount less commission.

EXAMPLE: 10 pips = 1%: You make 15 pips on a short and exit as the market starts to reverse. The next trade you risk your initial 10 + the 15 gained from shorting less 1 pip for commission to re enter.

5. Price starts heading in the long term direction and again you get an entry to short on your small TF. You short with your 25 pip stop and the market starts stalling at +7 so you exit (you are at +32).

Price retraces 45 pips and you believe price is again heading south so you short again on you small TF with a 31 pip stop.

7. YOU CAN ONLY EXIT WHILE IN PROFIT OR GET STOPPED OUT!

Price retraces 27 pips and then turns around and plummets 74 pips.

What time frame are your trading? What does that chart look like?
How many bars has it been since you first started shorting?

Trade NO MORE THAN 2 bars of any time frame!

8. You either reach your goal and make 7, 15, 26, 52, or 80%+ on your account or you lose 1%.

By reinvesting profit, having an unwillingness to let price trade to your stop while you are were profit at some point, and by sticking to a goal knowing that PRICE DOES MOVE HUNDREDS OF PIPS EVERY DAY (just about) then you will reach the goals you set out to attain and your losses
will cause you great laughter!!
Think and grow rich PRO :wink:

Maybe a Daily candle is too small for YOU, How about jumping on a weekly "Wick" and taking the body for a ride......Hint: Tuesday!

M.O. taught me how to trade in May/2009. I was NOT listening:

Ask you self what the largest advance was (that is relevant to you) that returned to the lows. If price advances larger than the largest advance that returned to the low then chances are price will not return to the low.

After making a larger correction price likes to test an area that falls around 50% of the correction distance above the prev. high.

When price connects to form a larger correction then price should hold above the prev. high and then hold at the first test area above the prev. high.

AND:.................

Losing money does not mean anything until you are forced to size down.

Breaking even is not a goal!

What you have in your account, after being crippled, is 100% of what you have in your account.

If you have $300 in your account it does not matter that you lost $900 because you have $300 in your account and that is what you need to focus on (and turn into a million :wink: ).

The only way up is up :roll: M.O.
