it's a big mistake to keep wanting someone to show you how to trade, there is no 'one size fits all', there are as many different way to trade as there are traders. everyone know something, no one knows everything. you need to learn as much as possible and develop a method that suits you, your preferences and your limitations.

I agree with that he said about taking lots of little profits going in and out, while retaining the possibility ot sustaining a big loss every time you go back in.  And that's exactly what happened to me.  (I lost all my profits)

So my take away once again is to hold on to a winning position and ride it out.

 

At a certain point one gets tired of hearing 'how to trade' and wants to see someone put it into action, it might not be the way you'd want to do it yourself but it can stimulate you to come up with new ideas.

what happens to you is you over trade, jumping in repeatedly when price is just bouncing sideways and then holding on forever in the hope of a big winner that keeps turning into a big loser instead.

Instead of doing that look at the video. they are discussing 3 trades. 2 level breaks and 1 reversal. in each case the trigger and the stop loss position are obvious (other side of line or prior high/low). at no point did he say hold the trade open even if it's no longer valid because price has returned back into the range.

most new traders are not interested in learning about boring topics such as position sizing and risk management, but would rather proceed directly to making money quickly, which is impossible.

Correct ...  hence the fallacy of using short-term charts :D

There you go, Mark Douglas' 'Trading in the Zone'.  I'm skimming through it now - 'All you need is a positive mental attitude!' (Or, you can quit trading and make money selling books to desperate punters.)  Thanks, that's really f*king helpful mate :)

Struggling to get through Douglas' book, even by skimming.  A little bit of common sense sprinkled with huge dollops of absolute tosh.  F*king horrible.  But not as horrible and boring as 'The Intelligent Investor'.  That is some seriously hardcore boring cr@p right there. :D

The 5/20 swing is particularly good, especially when you filter it with something like RSI > or < 50 :D:D:D

I'm seeing lots of Youtube ads from traders wanting to give me free secrets to success in trading!

I guess they are so successful they just want to give something back to the community.

Sharing, caring souls these traders :)

Website claims 75% or so of clients lose money but the actual success rate of day traders is about 4.5% (so a failure rate of 95.5%) according to this guy:

https://vantagepointtrading.com/whats-the-day-trading-success-rate-the-thorough-answer/#:~:text=Some traders I talked with,% to 4.5% success rate.

this doesn't seem to have anything to do with technical analysis? it looks to be just an advertisement for someone selling a trading course.

Quite a good little video (10 min) looking at trading supply and demand and is very similar to the way I like to trade. So initially looks at the key  S/D areas or levels then highlights micro S/D levels to swing trade with trend as price travels from one key level to the next.

I found that one a bit hard to follow (looked like another one of those benefit of hindsight shows) and also now starting to get into a confused and demoralized state of mind.

🤔 yes, as I've mentioned before, if when demonstrating a pattern on chart structure you select random price action that doesn't actually show what you are talking about people tend to get even more confused.

🧐 this is not surprising, your entries seem based on spotting a particular pattern and assuming it will automatically play out and are then surprised when this usually doesn't happen. A mentioned previously on a few occasions you should be looking for a combination of aspects to converge on top of appropriate chart structure that has positive expectancy from your own testing.

    • Start the conversation The US election is scheduled for Tuesday 3 November 2020, when all 50 states and Washington DC will cast their votes. The vote spans six different time zones, so the first exit polls will be available at around 11pm (EST) when West Coast voting closes. In the UK, that will be around 4am (GMT) on Wednesday 4 November 2020. The election is likely to create opportunities for traders, with price movements expected across a range of forex pairs, indices and commodities in the run-up to polling day. Volatility related to the election could continue until congress certifies the result on Wednesday 6 January 2021, or even until the winner is inaugurated on Wednesday 20 January 2021. What should traders expect to see during the US election? All US markets tend to experience increased volatility in the run up to a presidential election, including USD forex pairs, indices and commodities. That’s because many investors will attempt to lock in positions before the result is announced – using polls to gauge public sentiment. The aim is to take full advantage of the price moves that occur when the country’s political direction is confirmed. At the top level, early indications suggest that the following could be on the cards if one of these two main candidates win: Donald Trump A Trump win could see an escalation of the trade war, potentially causing problems for some US exporters and having a negative impact on the value of the dollar. However, this effect could be offset by reassurances that tax cuts and deregulation will continue – boosting the US economy. Joe Biden A Biden win could see tensions in the trade war cool, providing a boost to US exporters and the dollar. However, these effects could be offset by tax increases for high-income households, and more limited deregulation.   How will markets react to the different candidates? Market commentary by IG Senior Market Analyst Joshua Mahony Stocks Markets hate uncertainty, and historically the perception has been that a new president might bring policies that could be harmful for stocks. This happened in 2016 when analysts were confident that a Trump presidency would spark a market collapse. But, we are now seeing that same fear creep in as people consider a Biden presidency and the potential uncertainty it could cause. Biden is openly more left-leaning, and his policies are expected to be geared towards human needs rather than those of investors and traders. This sentiment isn’t helped by suggestions that Biden would reverse Trump’s tax cuts, and it is likely that markets will rise alongside the potentially increased chance of a Trump victory as we approach the election. USD The value of a currency is supposed to reflect the health of an economy and its future prospects. Many are expecting Biden to be less focused on the markets than his Republican opponent, so the dollar could weaken in the event of a Biden victory. However, this effect could be offset if Biden is able to improve relations between the US and China after years of market anxiety. In this scenario, it would be the Chinese yuan which may benefit the most, with the trade war having sparked huge upside for USD/CNH. Keep in mind that if the wider markets fall on a Biden victory – including US stocks and indices – the dollar would likely rally in the short-term to reflect a risk-off move as investors turn to USD. Gold The prospect of a more expansive fiscal policy under Biden, and from a government which is happy to embark on substantial spending programmes, could provide a boost to precious metals. There’s a caveat here too, because in the past precious metals have also followed the same patterns as the stock markets during times of crisis. So, any collapse in equity markets that may come from a change at the White House could drag gold lower in the immediate period. Plus, while Trump has finally seen the kind of stimulus he would have hoped for, a Biden win could result in a more substantial stimulus package if the Democrats gain a foothold in Congress.   How are you trading?
