Day Trading Mind Traps

“One way our brain helps keep us safe is to protect us from an awareness of our weaknesses. The brain believes that it is better to be falsely confident than recognize the real risks. This protective mechanism tends to work against us in trading.” Kenneth Reid, Ph.D
MINDING THE MIND
The mind can play tricks on us. Intuitive Trading is an attempt to mind read the market, which makes us susceptible to whipsaws. Hindsight Bias causes traders to underestimate the difficulty of trading, while Competency Bias causes us to over-estimate our abilities. These are mental banana peels that set us up for a fall.
INTUITIVE TRADING
Intuitive trading is a natural response to excessive randomness and non-linearity in the market. But making informed guesses is not the same as formulating a rule-based pattern-recognition system that gives a trader a true edge. Without a rule-based plan, intuitive traders expend a great deal of energy mindreading the market, which will not improve your odds of success. In fact, professional traders make a good living exploiting the emotionally-driven behavior of intuitive amateurs.
Feel free to reach out to your current Cannon broker or contact person if you like to expand on the topic.

Some Days are Just Losing Days!! Sept. 28th Futures Trading Levels 9.28.2022

Some days are just losing days!!

 

Don’t fight it. You will have losing days. I have been in the futures industry for 22 years now and never have I met a trader who did not have a losing day…and I will never meet one….impossible.

 

Understand it and accept it. One of your hardest jobs as a day trader is to make sure a losing day does NOT become a disaster…Our human emotions and our brain is not programmed very well to learn how to lose. Yet one of the key differences between traders and those who try to become “traders”…is that traders first learn how to lose. They understand losing is part of trading. The others, refuse to take a losing day and will make many mistakes along the way to make a “normal losing” day into a disaster. That may be carrying positions overnight when they normally don’t, reversing, pyramiding and many other mistakes that they would normally not make. That turns a “normal losing day” (maybe for an account of $10,000, a normal losing day would be down $700?) into one of those days where they wipe out half of their account, if not more.

 

Have realistic expectations. Under the statistics of your own trading. Keep notes.

 

Sometimes we need to learn how to lose before we can excel in trading.

As always, plan your trade and trade your plan. Please contact your broker or Cannon Trading with any questions.

Adjust your Trading to Volatility & Futures Trading Levels 8.31.2022

August 30th, 2022 Filed under Day Trading, Future Trading News, futures trading education | Comment (0)

December is now the front month for bonds, ten years, Silver, Copper, most grains, metals and softs.

ASP unemployment early in the session and later Crude oil inventories.

Also tomorrow is the last trading day of the month.

 Last Friday Powell 8 minute speech injected volatility back into the markets.

Few pointers below, hope it helps.

 

*While I have no idea were the market is going from day to day, minute to minute, week to week etc. I do know that in the past, some of the sharpest and largest rallies were short covering after a large sell off. More often than not market sell offs and volatility like we are seeing do not end up as V type of action but more like U or W when it is all said and done.

 

*Expect the unexpected…

 

* Have an idea of what you are looking to do, keep in mind possible risk and have a game plan. Now more than ever, plan your trade and than trade your plan!

 

* Think money management, hedging risk while you are still trying to figure out how to profit.

 

* Know what is going on, reports, current margins, current limits and more.

 

·    Consider short term options instead of futures and/or MICROS

 

*Trade smaller. The bands are much larger. Watch the VIX.

 

* DO NOT assume anything…if you are not sure, contact us and we will try our best to assist with the combined, vast experience we have here as a team.

 

 

My colleague, John Thorpe, Ex floor broker, contributed the following on the VIX and the VVIX:

 

We recommend all stock indices intraday traders to keep an eye on the VIX for directional clues and study, many of you have access through other means to view this critical trading barometer, VIX now trades 5 days per week ,23 hours per day. if you need to add the VIX data to your trading platforms , it’s 3 bucks per month, penny wise and pound foolish if you don’t. Contact your broker on how to add the Volatility Index traded through the CBOE to your trading platform

If you are looking for other reference material please contact your Cannon Broker for lists of solid, informative and helpful trading tomes
