 2ND ANNUAL TRADER AND INVESTOR SUMMIT.

Well, I just wanted to give my closing thoughts, as the jitters from #TISummit wash away. According to the blog post, here, by @timothysykes , we had “nearly 800 people attending our Trader & Investor Summit (see #TISummit posts on social media) from over 25 countries,  [thus making this conference] our biggest and best yet.” This is quite incredible considering last year we had roughly 300-400 people.

Why Trading Psychology Does Not Matter

In this crazy world of trading people say a lot of things and do non of it. One common focus for most trading gurus that teach others how to trade or people on CNBC is they focus on Psychology. Psychology for normal everyday behavior is nice to understand but when it comes to markets, psychology has no place. People in trading focus on trading psychology because they either do not trade real money, or they have no methodology to speak of. In this webinar I explain why trading psychology is trivial, what to watch out for when selecting a trading mentor, and why people focus on it so much.

 WHY OCTOBER IS NOT SO BEARISH.

Considering today is October 19th 2016, I figured that I would do this blog post to dispel the myth of October being a bear month. To start things off we will look at the history and the phobia of October. We will be referencing in this next part some work done by Yale and Jeffrey Hirsch. In one excerpt I think he captures the essence pretty well.

 5 LESSONS FROM ONE OF MY STUDENTS CROSSING OVER THE 100K IN PROFITS.

Finally a student who has crossed over a big milestone threshold in my opinion, and will actually let me talk about them. =) In the past I have helped two people get accepted into hedge funds, and helped another student in not only learning about trading but helped them apply AI concepts to make millions in the market. However great these feats for me have been, I cannot disclose who they are. Finally I have someone who is willing to allow me to talk about them, and I am very pleased to be able to.

In my short time as a trader/educator, I have seen many things. Some of them are good and some of them are bad. This blog post may be a re-hash of things you have heard or read about before but hopefully I can add my own perspective on them. I would recommend reading  5 B/S Clichés after you read this post.

 REVIEW OF MY TRADING AROUND EQUILIBRIUM DVD BY TIMOTHY SYKES.

But no matter how good or bad you’re doing in trading, and no matter how good or bad your current strategy is performing, successful traders NEVER stop learning and NEVER stop adapting and looking for more patterns and strategies that are working…at ANY time a strategy or pattern might stop working as well as it did in the past, so you must always be on your toes just in case. That’s what makes consistency difficult to achieve.

 REVIEW OF MY QUANT 101 DVD.

A few days ago, I wrote an important, but typically unpopular, blog post called “3 Ways To Use Stats/Data To Make Better Trades

I mention it was “typically unpopular,” because it seems as if anything other than blog posts with big, exciting titles like “How To Make $50,000 In A Day [MUST WATCH FREE VIDEO]” and “11 Steps To Becoming A Millionaire,” are routinely ignored by you readers…no different than the probable reaction to this useful, but likely unpopular blog post, since it doesn’t have the word “millionaire” or some big profit # in it…and that’s sad.

From -2K To +100K: The Amazing Story Of Pietro(Pie)

Increasing size has been difficult for me, every time I do it I have a big losses, so I downsize and I make a nice trade so I increase my size again and I loose…

From everything above, the most important one is number 3. I didn’t put this number to match the inflection point, you can see my trades and comments at that moment. At this point I’ve gain much valuable information with Triforce and started to approach the markets in a very different way. And looking back, thank god I did.

My Trading Journey Part 1

When I first got interested in markets about 12 to 13 years ago, I never knew how deep the rabbit hole would go. It started out of pure curiosity and turned into a real passion. There are very few things in life that you will be passionate about, maybe even one or two. I happen too have two passions the market and psychology. Fortunately they go hand and hand. However, it took a lot of different, jobs, books, and life lessons to understand what my true passion was.

How A 600 Dollar Watch List Returned 24K In 2017

The seasonal trades that I have been reviewing on my Watch List since 2017 have been well documented and you can see in real time how everything played out over the year. This is to just nutshell and solidify the years profits. Does not mean that subscribers took all these trades but this is the maximum potential if they did. Each trade was given days/weeks before they happened and subscribers could decide if they wanted to take the trades or not.

How A 1K Dollar Watch List Returned 61K In 2017

On Profit.ly under the Platinum subscription, you can find investor indicators, which are a set of Algos, that I designed to trade both the E-Mini S&P500 and the Ten Year Note. It is a complete system that has been running live for almost three years now and has had excellent out of sample performance. For those of you that want to automate my strategies, I made a version for Tradestation. See how I have them setup in Tradestation and to see the result synopsis of the real time trade alerts given for one whole year in 2016 before I ever put them on Tradestation for full automation.
