Trading 102: Learn to Lose

Important NOTE: With The Recent Volatility Across Markets, We Have Seen Margins Increase In Some Markets As Well As Wild Swings And Extreme Volatility In Many Markets. For Some, It Can Cost The Full Account Value But Doesn’t Need To. These Volatile Times Require MAJOR Adjustments In How You Approach Trading And Risk Management. I Hope This Article Helps And I Encourage You To Utilize Our Brokers And The Knowledge They Have To Assist You.. Contact Us
Many different factors go into trading. Too many to discuss efficiently in one blog post. Some relate to trading techniques, other to money management, mental aspect, risk capital and much more.
But one that sticks in my eyes is the inability to accept a loss. I see many clients who can make money and have days where they make money but when they lose, they lose much more, sometimes even losing control and losing a big portion of their account.
I am not sure how a trader can embed this into their trading mind, BUT in my opinion if you train your brain to expect losses, understand losses and that losing days will happen, you will increase your chances of surviving in this business, which in return will actually give you a chance to succeed….
Losses are part of trading and as long as your losses are part of the plan and are quantified in advance and you can adhere to your rules, then you have a chance. I think it’s easy when traders are winning…making money etc. Much harder when you lose or down. your brain starts playing tricks on you…it tells you to double down, maybe reverse even though your analysis does not say so….all of a sudden you start pulling trades out of instinct, fear rather than a calculated plan that has solid risk/ reward. If a trader learns how to lose, to accept losses, to have realistic expectations, then he/ she can avoid having one of those terrible days when traders can lose almost of all their account.
I went into this subject and detailed day-trading money mgmt in an article I wrote a few years back for SFO magazine.

Market Pick Review for the Week:

Gold Weekly Chart below for your review. Click for larger image.
Gold has benefited from inflationary pressures as well as downside volatility in Bitcoin and crypto currencies. Safe heaven helped the yellow metal complete a nice weekly bar. A daily close above 1888 can trigger another leg up towards 1939. First support at 1838.

Trading 201: (Day) Trading Futures vs. ETFs, Stocks
By: John D Thorpe, Cannon Trading Senior Commodities Broker
According to the Wall Street Journal, assets in Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) have grown to roughly $2 trillion dollars since their inception. Exchange Traded Funds were created to compete with the $20 trillion dollar Mutual Fund Market as it was the only market in which you could achieve broad class diversity outside of individual stocks. ETFs were also designed to overcome the drawback that mutual funds could only settle on the close of daily business at their Net Asset Value (NAV). Previously, broad diversification across market sectors could only be purchased or sold at the close of the business day based on the equity, bond or raw material elements included in the weighted averages of every component of the sector mutual fund—thus, ETFs came into play.
The first Exchange Traded Fund, the Spider or SPDR, was the S&P 500 depository receipt which was designed to track the S&P 500 stock market Index and began trading in January of 1993. No longer could an investor achieve broad market exposure on just the close of the business day, but could now buy and sell the broad market at any time throughout the trading day. Market makers and specialists provided liquidity for ETFs and continue to do so today.
During the May 2010 so called “Flash Crash”, the NYSE cancelled all trades …..
Gold Snap Shot by Mark O’Brien, Senior Broker:
As can be the case in any asset, what starts as a moderate correction can turn into a dramatic washout. In the case of gold futures today, its ± $85 intra-day sell-off – easily slicing through $1900/ounce down to the mid-$1850 area – almost certainly involved margin and other money-oriented liquidations. As an added catalyst, look to the disappointing non-farm payroll numbers. Further soft U.S. economic data would point to lower inflationary concerns and tamp down on bullish sentiment for the precious metal.
The case for any price reversal will look for continued dollar weakness and the overall sentiment that demand improvement for commodities across the board will continue tracking its established 3-4-month uptrend as the markets look through current events.

RTY chart for January 5th 2021

RTY = Mini Russell 2000 has been a leading indicator in my opinion for direction of stock index futures past few months.
Will be interesting to see if the sell off today was a start of a trend reversal or just risk hedging ahead of Georgia tomorrow. As usual in trading, few hours/ few days will tell the story….

Gold Daily Chart below. Sympathy rally with Bitcoin?
End of the year rally?
Need to see a close above 1900 to get a bit more excited about this one.
Time will tell.
Quick educational tips:
1. Look for high volume markets with a thin spread, so orders are filled quickly and it has high volatility, so there are opportunities for 2 to 4 good trades during the day. The Emini S&P500 Index Future is a good example of this type of market (Each point is worth $50, split into 4 ticks of $12.50 and there are 4 contracts a year, traded on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange).
2. Try to minimize risk to 1% of your capital per trade, then your capital can absorb 100 consecutive bad trades. Even the best systems can expect 20% -40% loosing trades, so the 1% rule gives you room to maneuver.
3. $10-$15k is the minimum recommended risk capital you should have per Emini S&P500 contract traded – then if you lose $1000-$1500 it only represents 10% of you capital, which is recoverable compared to a $3k account where the same loss equals 50% of your account, consequently you are more likely to lose the remainder of your capital rather than recover the loss. If you don’t have the higher risk capital, limit yourself to the MICROS – 1/10th the size.
4. Limit the hours you trade – the more you trade, the more exposed you are to human weaknesses, frustration and more. Just like an athlete you need to preserve your trading (playing) time….

Gold WEEKLY chart for your review below.
This Sunday night I got the first weekly sell signal since the end of 2017. You can see the little red arrow along with the current bar marked in red. Just because a signal happened, does not mean we will see a sell off but for me personally it is a good probability that the pressure is stronger to the downside. I like some of the option plays one can do using vertical put spreads.
The chart above includes some proprietary studies/ALGOS.
These ALGOS along with a 15 minutes one on one session is available for a free trial.
