The Rule When Trading on Tilt

Jul 30th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments
A peak into our trading desk in NYC........ There are three guys I really like on our desk that have a chance.  They work. They care. One has surpassed the monthly PnL number that signifies a real chance to make it by 4x.  Another was first in his class to hit that number (can't share number....compliance).  The last has hit that number 2xs in one day.  So these guys have ability. But......they all struggle with trading on tilt.  A bad day can become worse. So our Floor Manager and I met with all three in our conference room today. "Does anyone in this room not believe they suffer from trading on tilt?" Read more [...]

It was done without leverage or options, and primarily in swing trading stocks under $3.00 which had fallen 80-90%. I bought the positions at their support levels shortly before their going into Read more [...]


Finding and Increasing your Trading Edge

Jul 25th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments
One trader on our desk offers a best practice to emulate. This trader had been gross negative 3/4 past months prior to June.  He is a hard worker, focused on the markets, disciplined and well-trained.  He is one of the guys who can make it. Yet, while I wouldn't say it was a large deal that he was not yet positive consistently given his youth to trading others in his class are already consistently profitable.  He could do better. Prior to the start of June, I chatted with him in my office about his edge.  He brought everything else needed to be a CPT. Bella: Where do you have edge? He responded in specificity.
