Hello Traders,

For 2013 I would like to wish all of you discipline and patience in your trading! 


FOMC is now behind us and stock index futures look a little more vulnerable than before. My experience sugessts that many times, the bigger move and the direction of the move will take place the day followingn the FOMC, so I will close attention to market action tomorrow.

In between some good “trading , reading material ” to share with you:

What’s your trading blood Type?

This article was published by the Stocks, Futures, & Options Magazine in June, 2004. We think this article is timeless and whether you are beginner or advanced trader, you will enjoy it.

Perhaps the greatest luxury I have in this business is the ability to observe the experiences of many traders with different personalities, life schedules and risk capital, each trading in a variety of markets. What most astute brokers realize is that, over time, as some individuals prematurely exit winners while others desperately cling to losers, it becomes quite possible to match different “blood types” of those traders with their correct “trading diets.” Clearly, we’re not talking the medical blood type here, but in the figurative sense it makes the right point. With practice, it’s not too hard to determine blood types (type of trading best suited to the individual) based on the personality of the trader, and then prescribe a diet based on that individual trader’s capital, experience, risk profile and schedule.

Discovering Your Blood Type and Trading Diet

Just like a diet, where there is no right plan for everyone, in trading there is no single plan for all traders. Before deciding whether to “cut out the carbs,” “add more fiber,” or simply avoid certain markets, do some self-assessment, starting with personality. For example, are you hesitant or impulsive? Patient or short-tempered? Identify strengths and weaknesses, and then let someone close to you help pinpoint those personality pros and cons. Have a tough skin; it’s for your own good.   download the “What’s Your Trading Blood Type” PDF.
