Recap of training

From the coach:

Why do human beings like things to be complicated?

  • Yes.  Trading is simple.  Why aren't more people doing it then?  Fear  and the belief that nothing in life comes easy.
  • Much of the roadblocks in a traders results is in the very beliefs that they hold.
  • Keep your trading strategy simple.  Buy and sell by watching price only.  Indicators are only meant to be training wheels.  Take them off.

Drawing tools are still the best indicator

Ask the coach:

How do I stay consistent with my profits?


1.  Stop chasing the holy grail strategy.  Choose two commodities & two indices to trade.  Study & learn them. 

2. Trade your simulated platform in the same manner that you would trade your live account. Use your simulated platform smart.

3. Emotional mastery is the key to your success as a trader. Ask yourself this question prior to trading that day; "Why am I taking this trade?

4. Watch your habits.  Is your daily routine calming or rushed?
