As i have measured this ‘risk’ for thresholds and daily target moves, it is critical to minimize your loss and protect daily profit. You can always do this with market data. You do not want to over trade as I call it. I have shown many examples of achieving a profit level but find you can lose within a few minutes. So why do that? You can now figure why pro readers or the gurus finish their trading within a hour. Now you know why.
In this video, you will find how I am able to quantify the risk. I set different trading ‘modes’ based on the risk results I see. It helps to meet the trading goals I mention above. Some people have difficulties to figure this out. Uh…are they pro traders? Probably not. Let’s put it this way I have learned how many 7-8 digit traders who lead desks do it. This is it! Also, it is very effective and simple. Plus you get more time off if you wanted.
As for me, I am not going to argue with folks who do not generate logs nor analyze them to understand the nuances of the asset class they want to trade. Nor do they focus on trading execution on this same market data. All they do is base it on hunch or do some back test in a severe negative period like 2008/2009. Seriously, they will be surprised when they see how their strategy/algo does against current market data. If you want a conversation, show me a current set of logs of your market data with real trades. Until then, you most likely will wasting all involved with their time.
NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
