Two Trading Mistakes to Avoid

Sep 29th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments
Hello Mike - I completed reading your book last week and have to say the lessons I've learned from it are extremely invaluable to me in my quest to develop into a consistently profitable trader.

However, I don not understand the following (2) phrases from your book and wish for you to explain them to me: 1.

Learn To Trade Before You NEED To

Sep 11th, 2014 | By | Category: General Comments, John Locke, SMB Video Blogs, Trading Ideas, Trading Lesson, Trading Psychology
Whenever market conditions are similar for an extended period of time it’s not that difficult to come up with a trading methodology that works remarkably well. When this happens I’ll see two things.
