Trading Lessons from a Pick Pocket

Oct 4th, 2014 | By | Category: Health and Trading, John Locke, M21 Trading System, Options Education, SMB Options, Systems Trading, Trader Development, Traders Ask, Trading Ideas, Trading Lesson, Trading Psychology, Trading Theory
I had the pleasure of meeting Apollo Robbins last week in Boston. For those of you who don’t know him he is the deception specialist on the TV show “Brain Games” and heralded as the world’s greatest pick pocket. Not only can he steal your wallet and keys but he can literally remove your neck tie and take the glasses off your face, without you noticing, all during what appears to be a normal conversation. It’s really quite amazing. So naturally when I got to speak with him I started wondering about how he can do things like take off someone’s wrist watch without them noticing, and I bet you’re wondering too. The Read more [...]

Traders can identify the relative strength (RS) in a stock in regards to the VWAP. Is your stock actively testing it's VWAP trend-line but cannot Read more [...]

One talented developing trader we work with is struggling with making poor fade trades and controlling his risk.  I know many in the trading community struggle with poor fade trades and losing too much in lesser trades.  The exchange between this trader, his solutions, and my response might be able to help.

The $GPRO Short and Why the Market Doesn’t Care

Sep 29th, 2014 | By | Category: Trader Development, Trading Lesson, Trading Theory
*****This is a guest blog submission from Jordan Caroleo - @Jordar411***** — Editor’s Note Traders, including myself, were caught in a wash of trades in this breath of volatility pushing longs and shorts alike. One thing that I've heard and have seen were traders anxiously waiting to get short $GPRO. I stepped back, looked at the technical side and asked those traders "why is this a good idea? What is your reasoning?" On Thursday (9/25), I got a response that a traders thesis was "on basis of super extension, possible blow-off top this morning and today being day 3 of big ramp." I also had responses regarding the short Read more [...]
