Follow your rules — Trade your plan — Be disciplined and patient and most importantly never give up.
I have been a full — time trader since 1999, and I can tell you that there is no secret to success in trading. There is no revelation that you happen upon by chance or a technique or procedure that will guarantee a winning session.
I have spent thousands of hours at my PC analyzing charts, poring over earnings reports, and reading analysts’ predictions on can’t — fail stocks. As I was learning, I never lost a lot of money in the market, primarily because I cut my losses very quickly.
I eventually understood that, in order to play to win, I had to find my personal style of trading. In other words, I had to determine what works — and what does not work — for me.
I did not, however, learn everything about trading on my own. Over the past 11 years I have worked with and learned from traders who know exactly what they’re doing. They’re not household names, nor have they written books or marketed software that promises to make casual traders the next Warren Buffet. But these traders have made a career — in some cases a very successful career — by trading. In fact, they have told me their trading income is far more reliable than taking a chance on writing a book or leading seminars on trading strategies.
The thing is, once you have established your own method of trading, you’ll find that it’s difficult to give up the satisfaction of making your own money and being your own boss.
I have perfected my own method of trading, and it has proved to be very profitable. I believe that every trader can discover his or her own personal style, a way to consistently earn money.
I have designed this Web site as a way to help traders find their own method of trading, one that will make them successful. I have earned my success by hard work and talent, and I do not profess to be an expert teacher. Nonetheless, I and several other successful traders have assembled a library of valuable educational material that you’ll find free on this site. It’s a way for any hard — working trader to develop an individual methodology that will help create individual success. Just as I have.
