Can the Market Makers See Your Stops?

11/13/2018
More
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....

What's the Best Time Interval for Day Trading

7/28/2018
More
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.

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

6/5/2018
More
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...

The Best Place to Put Your Protective Stops

4/12/2018
More
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....

The Best Leading Indicator

3/6/2018
More
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...

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.
