How to Avoid a Blown Trading Account

I’m writing this article at the start of January 2019.  In the last few months I have observed many traders lose massive amounts of their accounts.

Interestingly though, many of these same traders had previously made some extraordinary gains prior to when the stock market declined starting around October 2018.

In the video I talk about the main reason this unfortunately happened.  I hope this hasn’t happened to you, but if it has then maybe there’s some takeaways here for you.

And if this didn’t happen to you or you aren’t trading yet, maybe what I show you could help prevent losses for you in the future.

How To Catch A Falling Knife And Profit More Than 65%Of The Time

 

My Typical Trade Walkthrough

 

Today I am going to share a very recent trade.  From this article you will see how I trade a strategy to make consistent profits from daily charts.  I will show you why and how I Enter the trade, where I place my Stop loss, and why and how I Exit the trade. 

 

What Type of Trader am I?

 

I design strategies to meet my objectives and beliefs.  My strategies consist of a set of rigid rules defining how I enter and exit trades.  Additional rules include where I place stop losses, position sizing (part of my money management) and how many trades I can have open simultaneously.

However it is down to my discretion as to whether or not I actually take the trade.   For example, If there is a very sharp drop in the general market, I may have lots of buys signals.  But I have learned to recognise market conditions that would not be favourable to my strategy.  Jumping in and buying this big unusual drop in the market could quite often be like trying to catch a falling knife.

Let’s get on to an example of a recent trade: Continue reading

How Stock Trading Legend Nicolas Darvas Saved His Fortune (And How You Can Too)

 

I have recently designed a new Short Selling strategy for stocks.  I am ready to start testing RS27 in realtime.  However, it has been nearly 6 weeks and I have not taken a trade using this strategy yet.  The reason is the main market conditions are not right.

I have stated many times that certain strategies work best (and worst) in certain market types.  I understand the mechanics of how this strategy works and I also know form experience that this type of strategy doesn’t work well in Choppy Volatile markets.  It performs better in quieter, trending markets.

Trading Strategy RS27 – Jan 26th 2015 Update

 

To Recap…

We’re heading into the last trading week of the month.  Today I’m going to give you an update on one of the new strategies I have implemented this year.  If you haven’t already read about it then you can get more details in an earlier post here.

Briefly explained, I am testing a short-selling only strategy for stocks trading on the American markets.  It looks to profit from short term down moves lasting from a few days up to a few weeks max.

Downtrends are identified, I then look for brief rallies which become very short-term overbought which I then short sell into.  Profits are taken as soon as prices become oversold.

Identifying overbought and oversold conditions is done by using an oscillator called Relative Strength Index or RSI.
