Why That ‘Trading Psychology’ Book Won’t Fix Your Problems

I hate to break the bad news to you, I really do, but seriously, that ‘Trading Psychology’ book won’t fix your problems. You’ll get temporary results at best, because the ‘tricks’ are just bubble gum and bandages.

Do You Find Yourself Taking Too Many E-Mini Trades? You Might Be Overtrading

This article is really about high probability and low probability e-mini trades. The failure to distinguish between these two types of trades is often the cause of overtrading. Overtrading tends to chew up profits because you incur an inordinately high level of commissions. I will say this; your broker will love you, as he gets paid by receiving a portion of the commission charges to your futures trading account.

In Fast Moving Markets, Why Are You Using Lagging Indicators?

In recent weeks we have seen a good deal of volatility in the markets. I suppose I should point out that it is not uncommon to see volatility at any price level. Volatility is part of the environment in which we work. Knowing the market is volatile, I would assume most traders want to be entering trades at the earliest possible time, once the trade setup is confirmed. Further, I suspect most traders seek to exit before the market backs up and reduces your profit or moves fast enough to have the trade go into negative territory.

The Randomness Principle, Tight Stops, and E-Mini Trading Failure

If ever there was a topic that will send experienced traders to arguing it is how to measure and account for randomness and setting stop loss/profit target levels. I also couldn’t talk about randomness without recommending reading Dr. Burton Malkiel’s “A Random Walk Down Wall Street.” Dr. Malkeil emphatically argues that past movement cannot be used to predict future price movement. Needless to say, you will not find this tome in most technical traders libraries.

E-Mini Scalpers, Probability, and Why Great Set-Ups Fail

We all have our favorite “go to” set-up and when that set-up presents itself I sometimes start counting my chickens before they hatch. Generally, after taking what I believe to be the perfect entry and watching it nose-dive the wrong way I start mumbling to myself, “that trade always wins, what’s up with it losing?” It is important to understand that even the best trade has the potential to fail miserably.
