Have you ever noticed the one thing about all the information you find out there these days about trading, you know – the various setups, strategies and systems. Well, they all seem to put a lot of focus on the actual ‘Entry’ and nobody seems to talk must about the other part of that equation – Which is the ‘Exit’ right?

We at Tekton couldn’t agree more with this statement, trading is truly an ongoing journey to learn about what works and what doesn’t in the Markets and in the process you will learn a heck of a lot about yourself as well.

Is the trend your friend?

Is the trend your friend?

Articles
No doubt you have heard that at some point in your trading carer or from others who trade, so we thought it would be appropriate for us to take a closer look at this saying and see if it really holds up. Even though a lot of trading educators and ‘gurus’ tell you to trade with the Trend, they never clearly define a Trend. OK then, What is a Trend? Well, let’s keep it short and sweet

“There is no “Secret Formula” that will grant us 100% Win Ratio.” But the Good News is that, depending on the type of Strategy or System you are trading, you can have a Win Ratio of 40% or less and still be profitable.Trading by plan lets you know when to get into a trade and when to get out. (It isn’t an angel’s voice whispering in your ear every time you’re about to get greedy, friends. It’s the plan.) If you’ve got a plan, it’s easier to stay objective and avoid revenge trading if things go south, as they will from time to time. And you’ll keep your mind focused and decluttered. No emotion allowed when you’re trading, remember? (Unless you’ve just won a trade and it’s party time.) So, discipline, good. Gut instincts, bad. The problem is, to practice your craft, you’ve got to actually get in there and play the market. And that means exposing yourself to a whole bunch of psychological obstacles you’ll need to be able to deal with effectively—pressure, fear, anger, uncertainty, etc.—if you want to come out on top.

It’s true. The best traders stay disciplined by sticking to their trading plans. Trading by plan lets you know when to get into a trade and when to get out.

Not only does trading discipline keep you from doing stupid (i.e. greedy, angry, reckless) things, being consistent with your strategies also teaches you a lot about how the market works. And that’s how you build up the confidence you need to make a business out of trading. So, discipline, good. Gut instincts, bad.

No one ever said that conquering the markets was easy. But being successful definitely isn’t impossible. It just takes a lot of hard work and even more discipline, no matter how much natural ability you have.

Fear sucks. We know. We’re traders and we’ve felt our share of it. Am I going to lose a ton of money on this trade? Am I exiting when I should be? Will my order actually be fulfilled? Or how about this one: When I close my eyes at night to catch my seven hours of zees, did I miss out on the one trade I should have been on top of?
