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 [...]


Why You NEED VWAP For Your Intraday Trading

Oct 3rd, 2014 | By | Category: Trader Development, Trading Lesson, Trading Theory
*****This is a guest blog submission from Jordan Caroleo - @Jordar411***** — Editor’s Note One of the best studies I use during the course of my trading is the VWAP. VWAP = Volume Weighted Average Price. What is this? Basically, the measure of average price throughout the day that is specific to volume. This is crucial for intra-day traders (and longer time-frames alike) because of the number of ways you can use it for confirmation. 1.) Relative strength in regards to VWAP. 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 [...]


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 [...]


Be Careful What You Wish For

Aug 15th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments, John Locke, Trading Lesson, Trading Psychology, Trading Theory
Whenever I’m considering working with someone, I always ask a series of questions. One of the questions I ask is “Why are you trading?” I bet it wouldn’t shock you to find out the number one answer is “I want to make more money!” which is the wrong reason by the way but I accept it and continue on. My follow up question is “Why do you want to make more money?” There are often multiple responses to this one but after further questioning , for most people, it boils down to two things, “I want money because it will make me happier” and/or “I want money because it will make me secure” . Again, both poor Read more [...]


Less is More

Aug 8th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments, John Locke, Trading Lesson, Trading Psychology, Trading Theory
As I sit here looking at the 400 emails I’ve gotten this morning, I’m reminded of the massive amount of information we need to sift through on a daily basis and how all that information affects our journey as traders. I grew up with the belief that” knowing everything I could know” about a subject was a good thing. After all, the more I know, the more successful I can be, right? Therefore when I decided to be a trader, I wanted to know everything. I really dove into it. And I’d like to tell you that I learned all there is to know about trading and instantly became a successful trader. But alas, the reality is quite different. Read more [...]
