Welcome my friend to our very first podcast.

Sometimes new podcasts begin by introducing themselves and telling their story. Let’s take a different approach and jump right into the meat and potatoes – my apologies to you if you’re a vegetarian.

So what’s THE #1 secret to becoming a successful trader?

No magic moving average
No magic price pattern
No magic market
No magic time frame
No magic indicator

So what’s the secret? You’re probably not going to like it, but I’m committing this podcast to sharing with you what you need to hear, not necessarily what you want to hear. Yeah, I’m sure I’ll make less sales than my competitors, but you know what, I’ll have fewer, but more successful traders than them, and that’s my goal. A small group of wildly successful traders.

And you know what, you may even decide you don’t want to trade after hearing this. If so, well God bless you and the horse you rode in on. I’ve just saved you a lot of time, money and disappointment.

Okay, enough of that, let’s get to it.

The secret to successful trading is the same secret to success in anything. I’ve heard this quote from a lot of famous people, so I’m not sure who said it first, but here’s what it is:

“Successful people do what unsuccessful people are unwilling to do.”

The operative word …

In training traders for a couple decades now, I’ve identified 10 mistakes they tend to make over and over. In fact, I used to make these same mistakes, so I recognized them in myself from my early years of trading.

But it all comes down to behavior. Behavioral finance if you will.

Some people complain that most traders don’t make money, and that’s true. But that’s true of any business.

SBA
NFL

So what are the things that unsuccessful traders aren’t willing to do?

Get an REAL trading education. Not free on the internet.

Go through the process of mastery

“just give me a simple system that can just make me $100/day.

Going from $0 to $100/day consistently, it 100x harder than going from $100/day to $1,000/day.
Process of mastery:

Bruce Lee: Before I learned Kung Fu.
In trading I’ve come full circle

No proprietary indicators, expensive software, etc. Reduced it all down to just 5 steps.
Masters use “feedback loops”  – track your mistakes.

I’ve help traders turn their results around by not adding things, but by simplifying things. By subtracting things.

Don’t make it harder than it has to be. Trading may not be easy, but it is simple.

This is a follow up from the last episode where we discussed the fact that OB and OS levels on indicators such as stochastics, RSI, and other bounded indicators are NOT actually OB and OS. In fact they’re the exact opposite!

This is also true of Bollinger Bands. Yet I see traders using them as a type of OB, OS signals, essentially using them as Support and Resistance Levels.

BB are not S/R levels.
Most purely they measure volatility.
Here are 3 ways to trade Bollinger Bands correctly:

Can be used to look for a directional move. If price bars hit the upper BB that’s a bullish signal, not a resistance level.

What’s best is when at the same time the LOWER BB line is angling down. In other words, the 2 BBs are moving away from each other.
BB squeezes are good. Volatility Cycles.
BB breakouts are good.

But wait for a momentum shift against the move.
Scalp trades
Work because so many traders got in, more are not willing to come in now because they’re “late to the party.”
Filter: But only trade them in the direction of momentum on the next higher time interval.

Ideally I like a 1:3 ratio between the 2 time intervals.
I’ll do a separate episode on how to trade multiple time intervals.

When learning a new trading method, stick to it exclusively without adding anything else you’ve previously learned.

Therefore they are not trading my method. They’ve created their own hybrid method and I haven’t tested that.

Rank #9: 12-Time Champion at the World Traders Challenge: Interview with Fausto Pugliese from Cyber Trading University

Podcast cover
Read more
In today's episode I interview my friend Fausto Pugliese from CyberTradingUniversity.com

Fausto Pugliese was one of the original Day Traders of the early 1990s and one of the first independent traders to take advantage of the Direct Access Trading technology boom in 1987.

He acquired a wealth of knowledge from years of hands-on experience, beginning in the trenches, working side by side with some of the most practiced and successful traders in the industry. After spending considerable time mastering the art and discipline of day trading, Fausto chose to start his own company to share some of his highly-sought-after wisdom.

Fausto is the 12-time champion at the World Traders Challenge, and is the author of "How To Beat Market Makers At Their Own Game – Uncovering the Mysteries of Level III."

Here are just some highlights from the interview:

Why he likes day trading.
How to get an edge in trading using Level III.
The difference between Level II and Level III.
It makes a huge difference to have the right type of brokerage firm.
Why trades pre-market.
Why you must invest in the BEST tools to be successful in trading (hint: not the "free" tools).
High Frequency Trading (HFTs).
The biggest fallacy is that no one makes money trading, because many people do.
Why it's important to be a self-empowered trader and not rely on others for trading signals.
Why you need to watch "Iceberg orders."
Fausto's favorite book:

"How to Beat Market Makers at Their Own Game" by Fausto Pugliese.
"The SOES Bandit" by Harvey Houtkin.
Fausto's favorite quote:

"Losing money is a good thing because you know you lost it and you won't do that again."

What do you think of when use the terms “overbought” and “oversold?”

Can’t go higher or lower.
That’ WRONG.

Not only is it wrong, but the truth is exactly the opposite.
This is one of the reasons you’re getting stopped out all the time.
You think all types of conspiracy theories:

Brokers trading against me.
Market makers know where my stops are and are taking them out.

No, the actual reason is that when you trade OB, and OS signals, you’re actually trading AGAINST the dominant momentum of the market!
Common indicator:

Most oscillators are bounded. Common examples are RSI and stochastic:
Stochastic

When the indicator gets below the OS line and crosses above it.

Because after gets above OS then, it’s out of the OS territory and into bullish territory.
When K crosses above D.
The heresy of this:

The extreme levels actually are strength signals in that direction.

When it gets “OB’ more likely to go up after that.
When it gets “OS” more likely to go down after that.
Professional traders know about stochastic pops and stochastic poops!
WHY is this?

These particular indicators, such as RSI and Stochastics have 2 important characteristics:

They’re bounded.

Remember, indicators are math equations.
Mathematically they’re only allowed to go from 0 to 100.
They measure “momentum.”
Momentum is the strength of the market.
So … let’s take stochastic for example. The first time that stochastic goes from the top of its range down to 0, is actually the MOST bearish momentum signal that George mathematically allowed the indicator to map on your charts.

BUT what happens in many people’s trading experience is they’ve been taught to BUY, thinking it’s bullish, when actually it’s not only a BEARISH signal, but is the MOST BEARISH signal the indicator can give you.

Then the market continues down after they buy, they get stopped out, and then the figure their broker is trading against them or the market makers are hunting their stops.
NO! It’s simply that they’re trading against the dominant money flow of the market.
Another one to be careful of is Bollinger Bands and on the next episode I’ll give you the inside scoop, and the way most traders trade it exactly wrong too.

Many traders will tell you that the psychology of trading is more important than the trading method you’re using. WRONG!

Others say trading psychology is equally important to the trading method you’re using. AGAIN, WRONG!

Your trading method is the most important thing because …

Having said that, it’s not either/or, it’s both/and. But it’s isn’t a chicken and egg scenario. You need a statistically viable trading method BEFORE your trading discipline even comes into play.

You could be a perfectly disciplined trader, and keep your rules with absolute 100% perfection, but if your trading rules don’t give you a probability scenario over a large number of trades, you’ll be a perfectly disciplined losing trader!

Rank #12: Day Trading vs. Swing Trading: Which is Best for YOU?

Podcast cover
Read more
Which is better? Day trading or swing trading?

Each has advantages and disadvantages. Here's a comparison chart to help you decide which may be a better fit for you:

DAY TRADING DEFINITION:

In and out during open outcry hours.
Use intraday charts.

SWING TRADING DEFINITION

Hold 2-14 days.
Use daily and weekly charts.

DAY TRADING ADVANTAGES:

No overnight risk.
Overnight you have peace of mind.
Can compound your money faster.

DAY TRADING DISADVANTAGES:

Requires a good attention span.
May need a larger account if trading stocks.

Ask your broker about the pattern day trading rule.
May be more stressful while you’re trading.

Need to be “quick on the draw” and make decisions fast.
Can lose money faster!
Can rack up commission costs faster.
Can’t do it during your “day job.”

Exceptions:

Spot Forex.
Trading before work.
Need better (more expensive) technology.

Computer
Internet connection
Software
Execution platform
SWING TRADING ADVANTAGES:

Can do it whenever it fits into your schedule.
Can take time to analyze the charts and other factors and make decisions in a more relaxed manner.

May be less stressful during the day.
Good attention span not required.
Don’t need the best technology so less expensive overhead cost.
Can profit big from overnight moves.

SWING TRADING DISADVANTAGES:

Potentially make less money in the same amount of time (assuming success).

Trading options can help you compound your money faster.
Exposure to overnight risk.

Overnight you may have trouble relaxing when you’re not watching your positions.
Smart to hedge with options.
May need a larger account because of the larger risk per trade based on the range of daily bars.

Rank #13: Is Bitcoin Really the “Next Big Thing?”

Podcast cover
Read more
Is Bitcoin the Next Big Thing?

CLICK HERE FOR THE FREE BITCOIN SPECIAL OFFER

In the last episode I invited you to write me with your questions and the #1 question that came in was about cryptocurrencies.

When you think of cryptocurrencies, most people think of Bitcoin. But there are 1,000s. I’d say 95% of them are ripoffs, or at least junk. Ethereum and Litecoin and a handful of others may have some future, but the big daddy is Bitcoin and that’s what the world is rallying around.

I wasn't an early adapter of Bitcoin years ago, but now my opinion is that Bitcoin is not only here to stay, and we may be at the BEGINNING of a financial revolution:

The CME Group, set a date this morning for the start of bitcoin futures trading – Monday, Dec. 18
The Chicago Board Options Exchange plans to launch its own bitcoin derivatives trading early next year.

John Deters, chief strategy officer of CBOE told CNBC:
"We've really come to the conclusion recently that that cryptocurrencies are here to stay."
CBOE Futures Exchange announced it’s filed a product certification with the CFTC to offer its own bitcoin futures trading. It too hopes to be underway by the end of the year.
LedgerX won CFTC approval to offer swaps and options on Bitcoin.
The New York Stock Exchange began a real-time index that tracks the valuation of bitcoin.
In an announcement on Wednesday Nasdaq said it will launch bitcoin derivatives products in the first half of 2018.
PayPal cofounder told FOX Business that bitcoin is "very underestimated."

PayPal announced a partnership with Coinbase to allow merchants to accept Bitcoin in place of US dollars.
Amazon.com has registered at least 4 cryptocurrency-related web domain names, including "AmazonBitcoin.com"
Bitcoin is uncorrelated to any other asset. Funds may add some bitcoin as a non-correlated hedge to smooth out volatility in their portfolio.

So yes, I'm now personally convinced Bitcoin is not only legitimate, and here to stay, but I believe we're at the very BEGINNING of what could be astronomical growth.

BITCOIN SPECIAL OFFER:

If you think it’s right for you, then you may be able to earn an EXTRA 10% on Bitcoin!

I setup my Bitcoin account through Coinbase because they are the leading Bitcoin platform and the first regulated bitcoin exchange in the United States.

Coinbase is also the company that the NYSE uses to base its valuation of the NYSE bitcoin index because of Coinbase's commitments to transparency, security and regulatory compliance.

HERE'S HOW YOU GET YOUR 10%:

Buy or sell $100 of digital currency (or more) through Coinbase, and you and I each earn $10 of free Bitcoin!
(yes I have a financial incentive, but you get the same benefit I do).

If you buy or sell more than $100, you still only get the $10 of free Bitcoin, so the "10 percent" is based on a transaction of exactly $100.

That’s a high percentage, so as the price of Bitcoin goes up, Coinbase my end this promotion.

Also please note this offer is not available in all countries.

Bitcoin is VERY speculative and may be very risky. I'm not giving any specific recommendation as to whether you should invest in it or not. If you do want to invest in it, then only use money that you could afford to lose. You also need to know that bitcoin is extremely volatile. It’s made short-term swings of 20 to 30% or more so if you don’t have the stomach for that, it may not be for you.

But if you have an extra $100 and you're already thinking about dipping your toe in Bitcoin, then this may be a good extra bonus to get you started.

There are limitations, so please be sure to read those once you get to that page.

Feedback loops.

Need a person outside of yourself. Here are 3 ways to do that:

Can be a friend.

They hold you accountable, but not necessarily better than you to actually help you.
Can be a trading room.

You watch their trading, but you really need someone to watch YOUR trading.
Makes you dependent.

Only security is to have a skill you own.
Be self-empowered.
Can be a coach.

Only way this works well is if they look at YOUR trades and give you the feedback.

Write down patterns on 2 things:

How you felt.

Confident.
Stressed.
Anxious.
Mad.
Just a little uneasy.
What you were thinking.

Self talk specific phrases:

“This looks good.”
“This has to work.”
“This looks toppy.”
“This can’t go any higher/lower.”
“I’m gonna try this.”
“Let’s see what happens.”
Look for patterns. Once or twice means nothing.
It’s very personal, you have to find YOUR patterns.
You normally have a general awareness of these things, but we want to bring them from the back of your mind to the front of your consciousness.
Friend: Every time he took a trade: “Yeah, this probably won’t work.”

Next episode we’ll finish this 3-part series on trading psychology with the most powerful technique I’ve ever found for turning a trader around from being non-profitable to being profitable.

Some say don’t use indicators because they’re all lagging. These are the people who usually brag about being purists because they just trade price action and volume.

Price is not leading
Volume is not leading
In trading we’re trading what’s happening NOW – specifically looking for the balance of supply & demand at the moment you take a trade and then continue to monitor that supply demand, bar-by-bar, and when it changes, you exit.
Trading with guys in Chicago and traded their method with my indicators.
So how could I do that? What advantage did my indicators give me over them.

First let’s be clear what they they don’t do:

They’re not magical.
But they aren’t “Money Makers!”
So no one indicator makes you money.
They’re not magic, they’re math.

So never wrong.
They map things on the chart, create easy to identify patterns, that are easier for the average person than reading pure price action or reading the tape.
We all get same readings. Software that identifies price patterns are notoriously problematic.
Benefit is we can create rule based trading system with them.
Trade objectively
Take guess work out and stress out.
Trade with precision and accuracy.
So let’s bottom line this puppy. Money in trading technical analysis is made by watching 5 non-correlated energies. Of money flow.

Non-correlated is the key. Not just 5 indicators.
What the indicators are mathematically measuring is the Money Flow in the Market in Real Time.

We’re not pretending to predict the future. We simply align our positions with the dominant money flow of supply and demand. You’ve heard, the common advice about living our lives: “go with the flow.” Good advice.

In trading, we do the same thing, but we “Go with the money flow” of the smart money. I call it “hooking your wagon to the whales.” And indicators give you a mathematical measurement of the dominate direction and strength of the money flow right now – at the time you take your trade.

Because it plots or maps the dominant money flow on a chart for easy pattern recognition, it’s easier for beginning and advanced traders to use, reduces the subjectivity of reading pure price action and in turn reduces mental overwhelm and stress.

Improving your trading with a New Year's Resolutions, or any other time!

Marcus Lemonis, star of CNBC's "The Profit," doesn't wait until the beginning of the year to make resolutions:

"I don't know that I make specifically New Year's resolutions. I think I typically make a new resolution when something bad happens or I have a failure or something doesn't go the way I think it should,"
"I almost have this reset and I don't use the calendar year as a time to do that. I use a mistake that I've made or a decision that I made that didn't go right as a time to do that."
According to Psychology Today, New Year’s resolutions can make some people feel depressed, unnecessarily stressed out, or disappointed in themselves.

WHY?

Because most use New Year's resolutions as “goals” and big ones because they have the target of one year in advance. That's too long to wait for a reward, in order to keep a person motivated

Should your goals (resolutions) be "big" or “realistic?” You need BOTH.

Your long-term goal is your resolution.
Your short-term realistic goals are habits.
Long Term:

Big goal required for inspiration (not motivation) to fill you with the energy of EXCITEMENT. How excited are you about that goal? Does it get you pumped up with energy? Or are you okay if it doesn’t happen?
Short Term:

Trading examples:

Improve your win/loss ratio.
Improve your risk/reward ratio.
Cut out a bad trading habit:

Over trading.
Removing your stops when they’re hit.
Taking profits too soon.

Rank #20: Using Multiple Time Frames with Trend is a Terrible Idea!

Podcast cover

TECHNICAL ANALYSIS HERESY OF THE DAY:

Don't trade in the direction of the trend of the higher time frame.

What do I mean by multiple time frames?
The traditional teaching.

Why that isn’t “optimal”
Why you could get away with it in the past.
Why you can’t get away with it now.
My “heretical” teaching.

Use momentum instead of trend on the higher time frame to confirm your trade on the lower time frame.
