Keeping a record of trades, so you don’t overtrade
Use the plan to change and adapt to different scenarios.
Every time you deviate from the plan (that you know works), you’re increasing the risk of you making money.
Our job as traders is to reduce the risk taken and increase the profits received.
Back to the above example, you see a quick spike and you want to trade it for easy money… Well, on the other side that is liquidity for someone getting out of their position – if you get in too high, which is most likely, you will suffer a swift loss.
In trading, you must let to opportunities scream and shout to you – do not go fishing for trades, this is where you will force a trade and enhance the odds of losing your money.
When you know something is working, stick to it.
Even if it means you can see the set up forming for a perfect trade but must wait for a day before it has completed.
It is better for the market to tell you to trade than to tell the market you want to trade.
If you are in a losing position and you keep moving your stop loss to avoid the losses, you’re just going to get margin called – which will affect your capital and your emotional trading terribly.
Trade when you see confirmation, not when you think it will be confirmed.
This is very important.
You must wait for the market to confirm your trading idea before you deploy capital. The markets will stay solvent more than you can.
Trade your own game!
To put it bluntly, no one cares about you and your trading account apart from you.
Don’t listen to what the news is telling you, what is on CNBC or Bloomberg, what analysts are spewing out, what people on internet forums are doing because at the end of the day – they may trade differently to you and affect your trading.
Stick to what you know and only read official data released by central banks and governments.
Only use social media or internet forums to socialize and look at sneezing panda videos.
Here are some extra tips:
You must accept that you will lose trades. This is normal. No one trades at 100% accuracy. Even with a 10% win rate, you can be profitable
Don’t focus on winning or losing trades. Be objective and trade to your plan and strategies. This is your edge, so don’t change it!
You will often hear “Never love a stock. Never hate a stock”. As a professional trader, you are neutral and don’t care about the asset. The objective of each trade is to make money. You do not invest in the Euro because you love Spain and have treasured memories there.
Control your emotions, like point 2, you can’t eliminate the emotional side of trading but if a loser is a loser then cut it short!! If you miss a trading opportunity, do not chase it!
Start slowly. Trade a couple of times a day, week, or month and ALWAYS review each trade. Ask yourself – did I follow my plan?
The Secret Behind The House’s Edge In Vegas
Why do you think 90% of people lose in Vegas?
It’s down to human psychology…
Let us explain.
So if you are on a ‘hot streak’/winning, you are more than likely to maintain the amount you bet. So if you are betting $50 a time and winning, you will stick to $50 stakes.
Why? Well if you are winning, why change it?
Whereas if you are losing, or switched from winning to losing, there is a higher chance of you to increase your stake size.
So if you were staking $50 – and you lost a couple of times, most people will bet higher to recover their losses.
This is because people want to walk away from a casino or Vegas saying they won money when the casino’s know that inside of us all is a little voice that encourages to bet more when we lose and keep things the same when we win.
We are risk-takers when we are losers and we are risk-averse when we are winning.
It makes no sense, but it’s why the house always wins.
What Does This Have To Do With Forex?
Taking risk remains the same psychological battle as gambling.
We have the tools to not only manage this battle but to also switch it around.
Our downloadable tools help you to protect your portfolio whilst you are “cold”/suffering from losing trades and enhance your profitability for when you are “hot”/winning trades more regularly.
This alone will improve your trading performance as it is the exact tools used by institutions.
Trading Mindset Quiz
A bit of a deviation from the more technical focal point of the course, however, psychology play a large part in your trading. Take the “Trading Mindset” quiz to reinforce today’s lesson.
Another well-used method for risk management is understanding how to scale a trade in and out. We call this pyramiding too and this is the reason…
As you can see that the base of the pyramid is the largest initial position followed two more opportunities to scale in.
The advantage of applying this method is that you instantly reduce the risk by testing the market direction with an initial 50% position size.
If you get the wrong timing of the execution, or the trading idea isn’t valid – you will learn just as much with 50% as you would with 100% trade size. This is a common tactic used by longer-term investors.
This method is also applied to trading but on a more rapid timeframe.
The 25% position deployments are usually when either the market pulls back, penetrates a near-term support/resistance level, or any other confirmation indicator gives the go-ahead, giving us a better price and confidence that the trading idea is validated.
Once you are fully scaled into a position, you also at 100% risk. However, by this point, the market has validated your ideas 3 times – which is very encouraging.
With full position deployed – it is time to talk about scaling in more capital.
Now that you are in a validated trade, thanks to Mr. Market, you can scale your position greatly using the same metrics as pyramiding your trades in.
This is how you can truly capture a trend and consistently profit from it and makes one good short-term idea into a hugely profitable long-term trade.
By applying the 50/25/25 rule you’ll be waiting for 3 areas the market validates your trade. Meaning you can scale in quite quickly. However, you can adjust this to as you feel comfortable. You could even use a rectangle for riskier trades – 25/25/25/25.
Let’s take an example:
As you can see in this example by using breakouts from the support we were able to scale all the way down to 175%.
Although at 175% scaled into the trade, this was the absolute bottom and we got stopped out.
Let’s take a look at how it compared between scaling into a trade and opening a full position from the start.
As you can see from the results by pyramiding and scaling into a trade we captured an extra $362.5 profit whilst risking the same.
Scaling into trades is best when you are in a trade for a longer time period as this builds your position over time, whilst reducing whole market risk.
Scaling out of a trade is the same principle, however, instead of adding and building on to your position, you take away your underlying investment and let your profits run a while longer.
The aim is to scale out and locking in profit over time.
So if you were at 100% invested risk, you can lock in your profit by either:
A) Moving your stop loss higher
B) Partially selling your position to reduce the amount invested.
A is used more frequently than B due to its simplicity plus it will keep the pip value the same going forward.
B is used to move the capital from one position to invest in another, it frees up traded capital.
Both have the same end result.
