Short term traders can actually make money if their winning percentage is only 50% – IF they pay attention to the basic arithmetic of trading.
Trade only when the potential profit is at least two times the risk – and preferably three or higher.
Be realistic about the risk – in trading futures it is […]
I use my SRVs in FOREX just about the same way as when trading futures – with one small difference.
I have noticed that the SRVs that turn price oscillations and send them in the opposite direction often do so at a price that is a bit short of the actual SRV value. That is, […]
Short term trading is all about price oscillations – generally short term price oscillations.

Okay, I will admit that a lunatic got a gun and killed people – but am I the only one that noted that […]
I am convinced that concentrating on a single market is best for most traders – particularly futures and possibly FOREX.
Like the old adage, it is best to be a master of something rather than a jack of all trades.
I attended a TradeStation seminar today and it was fun, but I could not help […]
Just yesterday I posted about a great way a technical trader can use fundamentals on certain occasions to gain a trading edge. As I said yesterday, they do not happen frequently, by Viola! – we had another occur one just today!
I has trading the 10 year USA Bond this morning and had knocked a […]
