  • Why the Pros Get Their Trades Filled Before You!

    20/11/2018 Duration: 17min

    3 places your orders can reside: Your computer Your broker’s server At the exchange Some advantages/disadvantages of each: Your computer: Good: protect you from trading blind if your computer or internet service goes down for day traders. Bad: slower fill Your broker’s server: Good: Faster than on your computer. You’ll get you filled even if your computer or internet connection goes down. But that may be good or bad! May want this if you’re a swing trader. May not want this if you’re a day trader. Bad: Slower fill than if trade went straight to the exchange. At the exchange: Good: Fastest fill because you’re earliest in the queue of a First-in-first-out type of system. Bad: But may be trading blind if have technology problems on your end, and then you can’t get out quick. Or if market conditions change and you decide you no longer want to get filled.

  • Can the Market Makers See Your Stops?

    14/11/2018 Duration: 12min

    Can market makers see where you place your orders so they can "run your stops?" The specifics will vary depending on whether you’re trading stocks, futures, Spot Forex or Options. Not only human market makers, but also, and perhaps more importantly, market making algorithms that are programmed to run stops. It's not most accurate to think of them running stops, but rather seeking liquidity. Yes, they may see them if they show up in the order book. One temptation is to work without stops. Another temptation is to use “soft” stops. The difference between hard stops and soft stops. Do major funds cares about your or my small orders? If you place your stop where a lot of other traders obviously will (at major support/resistance), then that could be a problem. Don't treat support/resistance as lines, but as zones. Rules vary depending on your broker, software, market you’re trading, the exchange, and especially the type of order you’re placing. For example, a stop order may be treated differently than an

  • Rande Howell Interview: Mastering Trading Psychology

    09/09/2018 Duration: 01h03s

    Rande Howell Interview: Mastering Trading Psychology This interview with Rande Howell from "My Trader's State of Mind" is one of the most insightful and interesting I've ever heard about trading psychology. Rande Howell, Trader Psychologist, has more than 15 years of practice as a licensed therapist and performance psychology coach. His work centers on how to break the fear-based, self limiting patterns to which the brain adapts us for survival and how to reorganize the self to a higher level of functioning. This is accomplished by learning how to manage biological fear (and its impact on thought) and thus access much more empowered parts of the self that shift our capacity for positive performance. Rande’s work teaches you how to change the way you understand and work with your biology; which allows you to succeed in regulating your emotions and breaking out of life-limiting patterns (really important in trading success). His emotional regulation training has been used to treat violent prisoners, break th

  • What's the Best Time Interval for Day Trading

    28/07/2018 Duration: 19min

    WHAT'S THE BEST TIME INTERVAL FOR DAY TRADING? THE 5 RULES: The size of your trading account. Can’t risk more than 2% of your trading account on any one given trade. This is from entry to protective stop. If holding overnight, then is risk of your hedge. Keep going smaller in time interval, and find what the risk is on 80% of those trades and if it’s more than 2%, then you have to go to a shorter time interval. Avoid the noise. Make sure your patterns and trade setups are happening consistently and that it’s not too short of a time interval. How much time do you need to see your setup, analyze the setup, and execute the trade with confidence. This may change over time as you get more comfortable with your trading method. Your psychological need for trade frequency. Shorter time intervals give you more trades. Getting bored and distracted is a big problem in trading. The average daily volume of the market you’re trading. The more volume it trades … The more volume it trades

  • How the “Little Guy” Can Make Big Money in the Market!

    05/06/2018 Duration: 21min

    The other day, I was asked “How can a little guy like me make money in the markets? Is it even possible?” I understand the question. In a world where power is controlled by: Big government. Big business. Where big money talks and can even buy you justice in the courtroom. It can be hard to believe that people like you and me stand a chance. People root for underdog. David vs. Golliath. Mom and Pop shop vs. Walmart. Rocky Balboa vs. Apollo Creed. In trading perhaps the Institutions vs. the Retail Trader (you). On numerous occasions I’ve had people “How can the little guy make money in the markets?” You feel they have unfair advantages. That the markets are “fixed.” The markets are manipulated by the big money. Bottom line – you’re making excuses for yourself. So we seem to have it in our nature to root for the little guy or the underdog. Study done by Joseph Vandello of the University of South Florida: We tend to assume that the underdog has better personal character. This

  • The Best Place to Put Your Protective Stops

    12/04/2018 Duration: 16min

    Trading is a business of probability. Every trader will take losses, so we need to use protective stops. Many traders take profits quickly but hold on to losing trades - it's human nature. We take profits because it feels good, and we try to hide from the pain of losses. 3 BAD TYPES OF PROTECTIVE STOPS: Above/below support/resistance. This can be previous highs/lows, pivot levels, Fibonacci, etc. Too obvious: Stop running. S/R aren’t lines but zones. Percentage move against entry. Meaningless with regard to the chart and price action. HOWEVER, #1 rule: Must be within your money management rules: No more than ½ of 1% of your trading account. Volatility stops  ATR Parabolic SAR Some traders use this technique because they say you have to allow room for the “noise of the market. Seems logical, except for one huge problem: It violates one of the most well-known rules of trading: “Cut your losses short and let your winners run.” So how do you keep that rule and still allow for the noise of the ma

  • The Best Leading Indicator

    06/03/2018 Duration: 18min

    Many say there’s no such thing as a leading indicator. They even take pride is saying they only use pure price action and volume. I’m not sure why they think that’s so impressive: They say that all indicators are lagging and that they only plot what’s already been done in the market … and that’s true. But that’s also true of price action. And that’s also true of volume. So what is the leading indicator and why is it a leading indicator of what the market is likely to do in the future? The answer: Momentum is a leading indicator. Here’s why: Not magical, but mathematical. Example of you walking North (you could turn around and go South in one footstep) vs train going north (because of its momentum, it can’t turn around in the distance of one human foot step) In Chicago Floor example. What IS momentum? Velocity times mass. Speed of orders and volume of those orders. But volume of individual orders to find the whales. Is momentum always a leading indicator? No, nothing is, and

  • 17 Real-Life Tips To Becoming a Successful Trader

    18/02/2018 Duration: 24min

    Improving your trading with a New Year's Resolutions, or any other time! Marcus Lemonis, star of CNBC's "The Profit," doesn't wait until the beginning of the year to make resolutions: "I don't know that I make specifically New Year's resolutions. I think I typically make a new resolution when something bad happens or I have a failure or something doesn't go the way I think it should," "I almost have this reset and I don't use the calendar year as a time to do that. I use a mistake that I've made or a decision that I made that didn't go right as a time to do that." According to Psychology Today, New Year’s resolutions can make some people feel depressed, unnecessarily stressed out, or disappointed in themselves. WHY? Because most use New Year's resolutions as “goals” and big ones because they have the target of one year in advance. That's too long to wait for a reward, in order to keep a person motivated Should your goals (resolutions) be "big" or “realistic?” You need BOTH. Your long-term goa

  • Day Trading vs. Swing Trading: Which is Best for YOU?

    27/12/2017 Duration: 22min

    Which is better? Day trading or swing trading? Each has advantages and disadvantages. Here's a comparison chart to help you decide which may be a better fit for you: DAY TRADING DEFINITION: In and out during open outcry hours. Use intraday charts. SWING TRADING DEFINITION Hold 2-14 days. Use daily and weekly charts. DAY TRADING ADVANTAGES: No overnight risk. Overnight you have peace of mind. Can compound your money faster.

  • Trading Grasshopper: Empty Your Cup!

    13/12/2017 Duration: 21min

    When learning a new trading method, stick to it exclusively without adding anything else you’ve previously learned. I see this when students send me their charts and there’s lots of other stuff on the charts. Therefore they are not trading my method. They’ve created their own hybrid method and I haven’t tested that. Educated Amateurs Step one is to “unlearn” Beliefs in mind:a. Trade in direction of trend of the longer time frame. b. Overbought and oversold. c. Trend is higher highs and higher lows Habits in Behaviors Common saying told in martial arts circles of people who’ve studied martial arts and then go to a new master.

    Is Bitcoin the Next Big Thing? CLICK HERE FOR THE FREE BITCOIN SPECIAL OFFER In the last episode I invited you to write me with your questions and the #1 question that came in was about cryptocurrencies. When you think of cryptocurrencies, most people think of Bitcoin. But there are 1,000s. I’d say 95% of them are ripoffs, or at least junk. Ethereum and Litecoin and a handful of others may have some future, but the big daddy is Bitcoin and that’s what the world is rallying around. I wasn't an early adapter of Bitcoin years ago, but now my opinion is that Bitcoin is not only here to stay, and we may be at the BEGINNING of a financial revolution: The CME Group, set a date this morning for the start of bitcoin futures trading – Monday, Dec. 18 The Chicago Board Options Exchange plans to launch its own bitcoin derivatives trading early next year.

    TECHNICAL ANALYSIS HERESY OF THE DAY: Don't trade in the direction of the trend of the higher time frame. What do I mean by multiple time frames? The traditional teaching. Why that isn’t “optimal” Why you could get away with it in the past. Why you can’t get away with it now. My “heretical” teaching.
