Football and Trading Success

Watching the Super Bowl, I couldn’t help but think how football is similar with trading. Not only similar but offers an opportunity to learn something from the gridiron that can aid you in changing your thought process and how you approach trading in general.

Medium Steak and Trading Bias

Back in the days where I would eat steak, I was a stickler for how I wanted it cooked. Out for dinner, I would order it medium but many times, it was difficult to get it right.  Well done, rare and everything in between would try to pass for medium.... Read moreread more

Take Some Off

I was on the phone last night with a friend who happens to also be a trader and I saw a trade set up in the AUDUSD. This currency pair has been a shorting machine lately but trading sideways since Dec 13. A few things lined up so I wanted... Read moreread more

Do these signs look familiar? Addicted to the dings, dongs and flashing lights coming from your trading platform? Index finger cramped and consistently bent from too many mouse clicks entering trades? Probably not even close to consistently profitable? Need to make back that losing trade fast? Then you have a...

Objectivity To Save Your Career

Objective Forex Trading For Profits from Netpicks on Vimeo.   In trading, I am a huge fan of keeping things objective.  Far too many of us can be swayed by fear/greed that can cause us to either take profits too quickly or worse, stay in a trade way too long. ... Read moreread more

Price As A Gas Gauge.

Price can tell you all sorts of things and you don’t even need an indicator to help you spot the obvious.  My car and just about every car out there has a gas gauge.  The gas tank, being an enclosed solid structure, doesn’t let you see how much gas is... Read moreread more

Don’t leave your mind on the beach

Whether you’ve just come back from vacation or you’re planning on going away soon, there’s one thing that should be on your mind and that’s “how will I manage to get back into the swing of things when I resume trading?” The number of times in the past where I’ve... Read moreread more

Stick To A Proven Recipe

I don’t bake. As a matter of fact, I don’t eat baked goods except birthday cake to help celebrate the day. My family has a history of using the same baker for our custom cakes since I can remember. Every time we get one, the quality and taste is just... Read moreread more

Winners Do It Different

Why is it every time I see an ad for trading, it always has the same type of feel? You know, “I burnt out 7 accounts before I found XYZ”. Seems every one that is pitching something failed, failed again and THEN found the elixir of success through some e-book... Read moreread more

Trading success is not confidential

When I was about 7, there was an abandoned construction site at the end of our street. There was a little shed made out of wood that us boys in the neighborhood decided to claim for our fort. We elected someone, his name was Alan, to be what we called... Read moreread more

Which One Are You

Over the years, I have been exposed to many different ways of trading. Some included indicators such as moving averages and MACD. Others were a combination of price action and market structure. Still others included order flow and opportune areas where liquidity will flow into the market. This is better... Read moreread more

Market Noise

Part of the challenge of trading is seeing market intentions for what they really are. Unfortunately (and kind of fortunately), markets rarely go from point A to point B in a straight line. If you’re objective is to capitalize on such a move, then you’re going to need some way... Read moreread more

Watch Structure In Action

In a previous trading blog post, I spoke about market structure such as support/resistance.  Around those levels are orders and one thing that big traders…those that actually move the market….can not do is simply trade anywhere on the chart.  They must trade where most traders place orders simply because when...
