Training for Trading Success

Jul 25th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments, John Locke, Trading Lesson, Trading Psychology, Trading Theory
Think back to the last time you experienced the opportunity to watch a world class performer, someone who really put on an amazing show. It doesn’t matter whether it was a musician, a sports athlete, an actress, a doctor or a business owner. When you see one of these performers in action, you can’t help but admire their skills. It truly is a work of art. And it makes me wonder, “How many hours, days, years or even decades of practice and performances did it take to be able to perform at that level?” How many times have they tried to master their skills and failed before they finally got it right?” And more importantly Read more [...]

Harness the Power of Your Emotions

Jul 18th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments, John Locke, Trading Lesson, Trading Psychology, Trading Theory
As humans we make decisions based on emotions. Of course we sometimes use logic change our decisions but our initial decision, and the one we are most likely to act upon, is always based on emotion. This is because our emotions are much more powerful and react much more quickly than our logic. Therefore, our emotions quickly send us down the path that we unconsciously think will give us the most pleasure or the least pain before we even realize what’s happening. This is why we often do things we logically don’t want to do. You see many of the challenges we have with emotion isn’t the emotion itself. The emotions are doing Read more [...]

The Power of Focus

Jul 14th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments, John Locke, Trading Lesson, Trading Psychology, Trading Theory
Most traders have no idea of the amount of progress they can make when they focus all their resources on mastering a single style of trading. Controlled focus is like a laser bean that can cut through the biggest challenges that have been blocking the path to your success. When you focus consistently on the improvement of any one trading system, you develop unique distinctions on how to make that system better. A major reason so few traders achieve the results they desire is that they never concentrate on their power. Instead they dabble their way through trading trying a little of this and a little of that making no real progress Read more [...]


Properly Setting Your Trading Goals to Lower Stress

Jun 19th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments, John Locke, Trading Lesson, Trading Psychology, Trading Theory
As traders we often set some sort of performance “goals”. We might say something like “My goal is to make $5000 per month trading”. There are problems with that goal, the biggest problem being that we don’t actually have control over how much money we make in any given trade. We might have a lot of influence on how much we make. We could utilize a variety of resources such as a good trading plan and proper position sizing but ultimately the underlying asset has to do certain things in order for us to reach our goal. Things we cannot predict and things that we have no control over. Therefore, we do not have full control Read more [...]


How To Remove Your Emotions From Trading

Jun 15th, 2014 | By | Category: Bruce Bower, Trader Development, Trading Lesson, Trading Psychology
Investors and traders around the world are always wondering “How do I remove the emotions from trading?” We’ve all experienced the downside of emotions –panicking and closing out a trade at the worst possible moment; being too greedy and taking on an excessive amount of risk; or just watching our overall emotional state fluctuate with the markets. The natural reaction is to blame our emotions, believing that they made us or caused us to trade worse than we should. And if our emotions are going to hurt our trading and make us look bad, then we want to suppress them and distance ourselves from them. One of the most Read more [...]
