What Does this Trader Do Now?

Oct 27th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments
Hello Bella, I read both those books and started a few more. The myelin concept got me thinking that I should be reading more every day so I don't fall into the habit of being lazy with reading in general. Then on the flip side part of me thinks I should limit the reading and focus more on reviewing trading footage and charts. What time allocation do you recommend for a rookie trader like myself hours per day wise amongst: 1)reading investing and accounting books 2)reading trading books 3)reviewing charts and trading footage 4)reviewing trading journal and trading notes 5)working on financial modeling and valuation Read more [...]

Choking and Trading

Oct 25th, 2014 | By | Category: Bruce Bower, General Comments, Trader Development, Trading Lesson
The most painful sports phenomenon to watch is choking. I can get almost nauseous when I see a skilled, highly practiced athlete fall apart in the last minute. Imagine- he’s been ahead the whole way and yet manages to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. We know that the stress in these situations is huge but no one wants to choke under pressure. A couple of days ago, I was fortunate to attend a lecture by Sian Beilock, a professor of psychology at the University of Chicago and the author of Choke. The book is about how our brain reacts to stressful situations and how we can mitigate the pressure that comes with it.  Her Read more [...]

Oct 24th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments
There are three things you need for every trade. Below we discuss a short trade in $YELP. More importantly we discuss how intraday traders must not just be right with direction, but also with time (or seeing the catalyst for the trade) AND while controlling your risk/reward. If you are just right about direction your results will be inconsistent, you will not be scalable, and at times you will place yourself in a position of weakness. *no relevant positions Read more [...]

One Good Trade Review

Oct 22nd, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments
*****This is a guest blog contribution from Jeff Williams, a hedge fund manager, PMP, and PMO Director***** — Editor’s Note One Good Trade is a great book! I bought the Audible.com version, as I do a lot of driving. Good narration. This book is not a step-by-step guide on how to trade and it doesn’t advertise itself to be, so ignore bad reviews by people looking for how to enter and exit trades. What this book does is provide an insightful and engaging story of life on a proprietary trading desk, a “prop desk.” Think of it in terms of a documentary with strong character development that draws you in. I hated Read more [...]
