Mar 17th, 2017 | By | Category: General Comments
Trader wants to improve his trading consistency.   (Please assume Trader has some edge in markets.) Trader might double down on their efforts to perform better during market hours.  If I just focus better.  If I just take only A+ trades.  If I just wait for my trades more patiently.  If I just use this indicator.  If I just size up in my best trades.   If I just stop making those trades.  If I just give my trades more room.  And on and on and on....... What if the progress is not in the effort during market hours? We know markets are always changing.  We know that each trade is not quite the same.  This Read more [...]

Impossible Market Timing?

Mar 12th, 2017 | By | Category: Steven Spencer (Steve's) Blogs, Trading Lesson
Wouldn't it be great if we had a tool that gave us a heads up when market was making a short term top? What if that same tool could be used to time the bottom in market pull backs as well?
