Today’s video discusses the need to eliminate distractions and negative influences in trading and life, as well as learn from those at the top of their game. I also pose the question “Is Trading Right For You?”

This weekend’s edition focuses on today’s MATD trade (again!), why I continue to consider it to be among the highest probability patterns, my current goals, and trading career ebbs and flows including the current resurgence of my own passion.


P.S. Due to time constraints, we’ll begin our trade of the week comparisons next week, so please keep them coming!

This weekend’s edition discusses the concept of “How Bad Do You Want It?, recent MATD sequences, confidence vs. cockiness, why trading like a jellyfish is every trader’s optimal goal, my current $10 million path, and ends with a motivating challenge for all of us where we’ll compare notes at the end of the week.

Links referenced in the video include a recent humbling Chronicles review, and scorecard Excel & PDF files.

Sat PM Blog Postscript: Thanks to Charles from Ohio for sharing the following movie excerpt from Coach Carter which we’ve also added to our motivational video library.  May we all live by these words:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Have a relaxing weekend and invigorating week.


The Weekend Trader – Surrendering Our Will

This weekend’s edition is admittedly a bit contemplative and includes the need to surrender our will to the market, reconnecting with so many good friends, expanding on some of the Chronicles book excerpts – including one day early in my life when I faced an unrelenting illness, hit rock bottom, and considered taking my life – and discussing Friday’s early trade errors, distractions, and readjustments.
