Trading what everyone is watching

11/18/2018
More
I discuss the current environment in the stock market and the attention the inverse head and shoulders pattern is getting.

Beware of the “smart” crowd

11/14/2018

Position sizing: the double edged sword

10/14/2018

An old lesson came back to bite me in a big way at an inopportune time. Position sizing continues to be my greatest strength and greatest weakness but at this stage of my career the downside of that is less tolerable.

What’s your max loss?

9/24/2018
More
You must determine the point where you are going to exit your trade before you enter. Sometimes the more complex your strategy the more you can rationalize not doing that in your head. You can also rationalize that when you are trading well and it doesn’t seem important at the moment...but it IS!
