Chess and Options Trading: a Perspective from Pete in Indonesia

Mar 30th, 2011 | By | Category: General Comments
I received  an interesting email yesterday from a nice gentleman from Indonesia  (SMB gets lots of inquiries from all over the world) who has expressed an interest in SMB's  options training course that we will be launching in May. Pete has studied options trading through literature and has experienced  some early success. What I found so interesting about Pete's email, was the wisdom of his recognition that, while not impossible, it is pretty unlikely that someone can sustain success in options trading (or any other kind of trading for that matter), without the guidance of a mentor who can work the student  through the many Read more [...]


Traders Ask: How Do You Detect Overconfidence?

Mar 30th, 2011 | By | Category: Mike Bellafiore's (Bella's) Blogs, Traders Ask

The Shake, GMan, the Newbs and ETP

Mar 29th, 2011 | By | Category: Mike Bellafiore's (Bella's) Blogs
50.50 was the important technical level we were hawking in ETP. Stock In Play. We have our level. ETP opens below, does tons of volume just below the level, and then holds above 50.50. Long right? Easy right? Well if only trading were that easy. Yes we want to be long. But can we stay in the long while responsibly controlling our risk? This is always our challenge. And we must control our risk before anything else. So some newer traders set their stops below 50.50. This is the right area for these stops. But there was more than one way to set this stop. There was a way that gave back all your profits. And then there was the Read more [...]
