Hello Traders,

For 2014 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading!

I wrote a good article a few years back about day trading money management and one of my points was that it is my personal opinion that if a day trader sets a daily target profit and walks away when he or she achieves that target, they will fare better in the long run.

I might be wrong but think about it, if you are trading a $10,000 account and have a daily profit target of $500. How many times were you there intraday? Would your account equity be in a better shape now if you walked away each day when you made $500 ( in addition to implementing a daily stop level?)

The profit level will be different for each trader based on account size, trading style, aggressiveness level etc. but from talking with many different clients and observing many different clients I think that setting daily profit  AND daily money management will help most traders financially as well as emotionally.

If you want to read the full article and you are a client, simply email me your name and account number and i will email the PDF to you. If you are a prospect, please share with me your trading experience and software you are using and I will be happy to email it to you as well.

Knowing What You Don’t Know in Trading Marketsby Jim Wyckoff www.jimwyckoff.com  

 

The headline of this educational feature may be a bit confusing, but I will explain what I mean shortly. First, I want to reiterate that trading futures, stock and FOREX markets is not an easy undertaking. It disgusts me that there are a few unsavory people in our industry that portray trading as an easy, get-rich-quick scheme, or as some endeavor for which there are “secrets” to be learned from those who hold “trading secrets.”Folks, the plain truth is that there are no trading secrets and no easy paths to quick success in trading markets. Beware of anyone who tries to tell (or sell) you such.One of the biggest obstacles to success in trading markets is a lack of knowledge and understanding of the process of trading. The “process of trading” includes understanding financial leverage, market behavior and trader psychology. Understanding the process of trading can be achieved with perseverance and a willingness to continue to learn.It’s not coincidental that trading markets is similar to most other human endeavors: Hard work and experience are required to achieve notable success. A person who enjoys classic automobiles would not attempt to tear down and successfully rebuild an engine without having some previous experience, or without having learned about the workings of an automobile engine-including knowing about the tools involved in the operation.I have written numerous times that learning about different trading tools, different markets and different trading strategies provides a solid foundation on the road to trading success.Ironically, I believe a major advantage of being an experienced trader is knowing what you don’t know about markets and trading. Yes, you heard that right: Knowing what you don’t know.

What do I mean by this? I mean that there are certain elements of futures trading about which I do not “know,” and never will.

I don’t “know” what markets are going to do in the future. Some may ask, “How can you be in this business and not know what markets are going to do? How can you be a successful trader and not know where market prices are going?” My answer is that market analysis and trading (at least the way I see it) is not a business of bold predictions, but one of exploring market probabilities based upon market knowledge, price history, human behavior and trading experience. The fact that I “know that I don’t know” exactly what a market will do gives me a trading edge. Why? Because I will exercise more caution and think about and plan for what could happen if a trade turns against me. I know that some trades will indeed turn against me and that I need to have the capital to trade another day, so I won’t “put all my eggs in one basket.”

I prudently place protective buy and sell stops on trades because I do not “know” what the markets will do. I would rather absorb a small trading loss and be termed “wrong” about that trade, as opposed to risking trading with no protective stops and seeing a small loser turn into a big loser–all in the “hope” the market will turn around so I can be proven “right.”

(Do you see what I mean when I discuss human behavior? Most of us don’t like to be “wrong,” and will make decisions so that we are not wrong. In trading, sometimes the decisions traders make to avoid being “wrong” are not prudent decisions for those wanting to be successful traders in the long run.)

One sure fire clue I get that a trader does not have much trading and market experience (and needs more!) is when the trader tells me he or she “knows” a market is going to do something. What can be even worse is when a trader thinks he or she “knows” what the market is going to do, and then makes a trade that turns out to be a winner. That type of psychological reinforcement of a flawed trading characteristic only sets up the trader for a bigger disappointment at some point in the future-likely sooner rather than later.

Traders absolutely must respect the markets. Only the markets are 100% right. Traders who think they “know” exactly what a market will do are not showing the markets respect.

That’s it for now. Next time, we’ll examine another important issue on your road to trading success.

Benefits of Trading Futures Online

April 7th, 2014 Filed under Commodity Trading, Future Trading News, Future Trading Platform, Futures Broker, Futures Trading | Comment (0)

Full-service walk-in brokerage firms have been the traditional institution trusted within the investment world. Currently, a new way of trading has been edging its way to the forefront – online futures trading. Trading online has provided many new possibilities for would-be investors, and in today’s day and age, there is almost a necessity to find more comprehensive, faster, real-time ways to interact within the commodities markets.

The internet puts any given market and its activity into electronic format, which gives investors quicker access to trading positions. Futures trading, particularly, is a type of trade in which an investor takes a position on a contract with a set price of an underlying commodity, and agrees to either buy or sell the underlying asset in raw or currency form at a set future date. Below is a comprehensive explanation of the specific benefits of trading futures contracts with these added benefits. By taking them into consideration with an investor’s knowledge of various markets, traders can put their strategies into context and take unique positions with their investments.

  • Reduced Commissions: Brokers put a tremendous amount of work into studying market trends, negotiating trades, and processing orders for clients, so it comes as no surprise that their invested time and effort costs the investor a great deal. By trading online, traders can cut commission costs by fifty to seventy-five percent. An investor can expect to pay out five to ten dollars per trade while trading futures online, as opposed to the forty to seventy dollars per trade with a full-service broker. There is also an option for broker assisted accounts in which an investor pays a slightly higher rate of fifteen to twenty dollars per trade with trading advice and broker suggestions. Either way, the savings over time are valuable.
  • Learning Curve: An investor can learn a great deal through online trading by taking more control in day to day decisions. Many brokers can assist a trader with the basics of futures trading, however the ability to take a more proactive approach to trading futures is an investor’s biggest asset. If an investor makes a bad trading decision, albeit costly, the decision can acclimate a trader to market temperaments and provide valuable experience as to the responsibility involved in reaching their trading goals.
