Mindpower – How to Stop Ruminating

That which you nurse grows.

If you have a problem or an issue that you are dealing with it can take over your thoughts and your life.

Break your problem down and de-tooth it.

Plot a solution into tiny building blocks. Break it down so it doesn’t seem so immense in your life and break it down to do something today.

Patrick Hollingworth

The Summit Ridge of Everest is the most remote place on earth.

Cold, haunting and lonely.

And in the mountains death is real.

Why does Patrick climb when most of us would be tucked up in bed asleep on our pillows?

The answer….  the sheer stunning natural beauty of planet earth and the privilege of being places few people have been.

The mountains also put you in touch with questions of death and recognition of the fragile state of human life. You also see the corporate rat race is not entirely real and you don’t have to go down that road if you choose.

Patrick’s advice from the highest peaks in the world is to give up your clutch for comfort and embrace opportunities for the unknown and adventures. Going out into the unknown makes you a better person on the other side.

Hear his views of the markets and why he never watches the movie Apollo 13. Louise Bedford looks at your trading Eureka moment.

Mindpower – Louise Bedford

TRADING EUREKA moments are precious and the relief which comes from them are sublime.

Louise explains what happens in the brain when these moments occur and why we should hang on in to experience one.

Perry Kaufman

Perry began his career on the space program working on the navigation for Gemini which was later used for Apollo missions and subsequently military reconnaissance.

He was also incidentally one of the guys who caused the Y2K problem.

But even in aerospace they had free time.

Perry used exponential smoothing (similar to moving averages) to determine the path of missiles and he took that technique into the markets to determine buy and sell signals.

He evolved into a trader, strategy developer and risk manager using algorithmic systems and is a renown and leading expert in the field.

In this interview from The Bahamas Perry speaks about:

  • trend following and moving averages
  • why currencies play follow the leader and why when the US raises rates other countries have to follow
  • breakout systems
  • accepting risk as a trader
  • highlights of his time aerospace and why he won’t watch the movie Apollo 13.

Rank #8: Treasure Trading

Podcast cover
Read more

Didn’t get a chance to make it to the one-day seminars with Chris Tate and Louise Bedford? Or do you just want refresher tips? Here are some of the key points shared by Chris Tate on how to be a successful trader. This episode will punch through any confusion you’re feeling.

Mindpower – Louise Bedford

Stop Procrastinating!

To get over procrastination break down that big project into tiny chunks and once you have started you are more likely to continue.

SHAME is a big reason people procrastinate. The best way to overcome it is consider the project done and associate good feelings with it.

Then truly you will be a high performer.

Chris Tate

We are treasure hunters ….  but often in the wrong way.

Good traders BUY NEW HIGHS.

But many people don’t grasp this concept easily. You will never be wealthy buying something that is going down.

In Chris’s mind most people are fossicking around in their grandmother’s underwear draw looking for shillings she collected when she was younger while the sensible people and good traders are looking in the right spot.

They have the right key to the bank vault.


The sheer simplicity of trading can bamboozle people because they expect it to be immensely complex.

But in reality all you need to do is listen to the markets and they will tell you everything you need to know.

And make sure you keep talking to other traders to get the support you need. They are the only ones who will understand your pain, your frustration, your growth and the errors you make.

In fact part of a traders resume is to be wrong. Trading is one of those professions where you are paid to be wrong and the traders who make the fewer errors wins.

And remember successful people have a directed given PURPOSE. Everyone is a beginner is something, the most successful beginners GET THE BASICS RIGHT.

It is time to be in the pilot’s seat of life and create your own luck.  Enjoy this episode with Louise Bedford and Michael Yardney on how the successful make their own opportunities.

Louise Bedford and Michael Yardney

Luck favours the persistent.

Luck favours the brave.

Luck favours the hard working.

Successful people create their own LUCK and their own destiny. They are the PILOTS of their own lives not the passengers.

Successful people have failed more often than the unsuccessful but they have survived…. they kept going …. they lived to fight another day.

Successful people have also tried the hardest. Talent alone is not enough, for luck to flourish you must relentlessly develop your own skills. It takes the right mindset, the right place, the right person and the right opportunity to create your LUCK.

Luck equals opportunity and preparation.

Who you hang around is also another big factor. You are also the product of the 5 people who are closest to you.

Michael introduced Louise to property investing and presented a whole new investment world to her.

Be prepared as an investor to create opportunities. Come to Michael’s Wealth Retreat June 9 -13 and link arms with an elite group of people who share the same mindset and immerse yourself into the principles of success.

Sharing goals is important too.

Tom Basso

It took Tom Basso 5 years to become profitable in the markets, but every year he lost less money and with every mistake he improved.

We discuss current markets as well as the EU.

And we talk about the world Tom has created on his website – A place to learn, a place to connect and a place to improve your craft.

Rank #15: Daily Versus Weekly Systems

Podcast cover
Read more

Louise Bedford has traded both daily and weekly trading systems. Which one is the best for you? Jonathon Barrett gives a global markets update and Niv Dagan talks all things trading.

Jonathon Barrett

The US economy is starting to slow down, and with a hawkish statement by The Fed on interest rates, there could be a recipe for profit-taking.

Oil has come under pressure as Nigeria and Libya continue to produce, Opec cuts don’t seem to be working and the US continues with its own reserves.

Louise Bedford

Do weekly trading systems outperform daily?

Louise shares some of her 30 years experience in the markets.

  1. In a daily system you won’t be able to catch long-term trends and pyramid into a position. However, for the experienced trader there are still gains to be had.
  2. There are more transaction costs
  3. Unless you develop your skills, daily charts are noisy and it is harder to see the overall trend
  4. It’s possible to overtrade.

Niv Dagan – Peak Asset Management

Peak Asset Management is a boutique investment firm based in Melbourne. Niv and his team provide private and institutional investors with access to attractive corporate opportunities.

In this interview he talks about:

  • why investors always want more

Rank #16: The Laughter Advantage

Podcast cover
Read more

Anthony Ackroyd is one of Australia’s best-known comedians and he features on this week’s episode of Talking Trading on the benefits of laughter and to how find joy in your life. If love conquers all but laughter makes it possible then Anthony challenges us to find the joy in every day life and nurture the humour which is already there leading to more success, health and wealth.

Anthony Ackroyd

Anthony Ackroyd is one of the leading comedians of his generation in Australia. He has graced most Australian television channels with his skits, improvisations and impersonations on shows such as The Comedy Company, Hey Hey its Saturday, The Big Gig and Good News Week. At one stage he was so famous he was the subject of a question on The Wheel of Fortune.

He is in short – One Funny Guy.

Exhausted from fame, Anthony set about applying what he learnt as a stand up comedian to help people as a Clown Doctor and now as a laughter coach.

Did You Know?

One minute of a good solid belly laugh is equivalent to 10 minutes on an exercise bike for aerobic conditioning and that every time you laugh you release:

  • A hormone which boosts your immune system
  • Dopamine or the reward chemical
  • Oxytocin which makes you feel closer to other people
  • Endorphins which make you feel more motivated and inspired
  • Serotonin which makes you feel more peaceful

And if that is not enough, the Japanese believe that laughter is spending time with the Gods.

Anthony’s favourite motto is love conquers all, but laughter makes it possible and he delivers three tools for creating happiness and laughter:

  1. Intention to find more humour
  2. Attention – what we focus on grows
  3. Interpretation – we learn to see the humour in all situations

Anthony is passionate about people adopting the laughter lifestyle and finding the joy that is actually there in life. After all, laughter is the shortest distance between two people and it is the sound of the soul waking up.

Rank #17: XX Rated Trading

Louise Bedford on gender in the markets and which comes first the chick or the dreg, Chris Tate on how to kick start a small account and Adam Talbot on the little things that make success.

Mindpower – Louise Bedford

Research by Harvard sociologist Rosabeth Kanter on her study Men and Women of the Corporation found that women tend to be pigeon-holed in a corporation and typecast into 4 categories:

  1. Mother
  2. Pet
  3. Seductress
  4. Iron Maiden.

But the research showed when more women were employed those gender-based differences dissolved.

We don’t have enough female traders.

In the Trading Game community 30% of traders are female but in retail CFD markets only 10% are women clients.

Let’s start encouraging gender equality with trading. Trading has true longevity for people, it doesn’t rely on the power of your body it relies on the power of your mind.

It a viable way of keeping money in your twenties and thirties and into old age.

This research inspired and encouraged Louise to keep speaking out. She really wants to see you succeed and share in your success as you upgrade your lifestyle and realise what you are capable of and step into your power and identity as a trader.

 A Little Trading – Chris Tate

If you had a small account of 5k what would you do to kick it off?

To start small Chris would get used to dealing in the markets and learn to acclimatise your responses.

The markets show people what they are really like – ill disciplined, lazy, frightened, and unwilling to do the things that make you successful.

How you respond will be the harbinger to if you are successful.

Book Review The Slight Edge – Adam Talbot mentoree of 2016

Adam reads this book once a year and the one book that has made the biggest impact on his life personal.

The message of The Slight Edge is the secrets to success are the little choices we make each day – the little things that are easy to do and also easy not to do.

Over time the compound effect of these little choices will lead you to the success you desire. Do the little things that matter ESPECIALLY when no one is watching.

In this interview with Chris Tate, we hear what are accurate expectations of a short-term trading system and how much cash flow it can bring. Louise Bedford talks about taking responsibility for where you are in life and your trading education.

Chris Tate

That is the thing about trading… No one is ever going to ring you up and say:

‘You have made too much money, STOP MAKING SO MUCH MONEY.’

Short-term trading adds diversification and cash flow to your portfolio.

However, there are realistic expectations for a short-term system.

You can only get what the market will give you.

You may buy the Aussie dollar for 79c but you are not going to sell it for $7.90. You can’t a have a life changing return from short-term trading. It is not designed for what a long-term system does.

You need to have to have the right tool for the right job.

In this interview with Chris Tate, we also talk about back-testing and how human bias can creep into the analysis, renaissance technology and Jim Simons, and the psychology of traders who make a lot and then lose a lot, and realistic returns of the markets over the past years.

Louise Bedford – Mindpower

Automate Your Pain

What do you procrastinate about? Usually it some activity that you think is a drudge activity.

So link your activities to push your day ahead.  The more you can link a habit with another the easier it will become for you.

Play your ‘A GAME’.

It is hard as an adult to accept responsibility for your actions. Yet to grow that is exactly what you need to do. Accept responsibility for where you are in life, if you don’t your circumstances will never change. You will always find someone to blame, some excuse to give, some reason why you are not where you need to be.

Be the best version of yourself.

There is no trading emotion that Chris and Louise haven’t felt themselves in the past.

Accept where you are in your trading education. If you have followed your trading plan that trade is never a failure.
