Winning Psychology: The Ten Top Tasks for Trading Success: Provided in the class is a working definition of Winning Psychology and show each of the tasks contributes to a trader's success. Most of these tasks are not carried out by the majority of traders.

Risk Management: A New Approach to Position Sizing: This unique method makes an impact! In a test, starting with $50,000.00 and using the normal method of position sizing (risking 2% per trade), the plan produced a profit of $10,000.00 i.e. a 20% return. Applying this method to the same results, produced a profit of $90,000.00! This increase in profit was accompanied by only a marginal increase in risk.

Written Trading Plan: A Plan for Trending Markets: The presentation will show the essential elements of a trading plan with an edge. It will demonstrate those elements with a novel twist to a traditional technical tool: the humble trend channel. The result however, is a dynamic plan for any timeframe - day trader, swing trader or position trader.

Morning Session:

Ray Barros:   Trading Success

Trading is a zero sum game.  For every winner that is one opposite loser.
There are 20% winners and 80% losers. Of the 20% winners there is another 20% super successful winners.
If you are the 80% loser category, most likely you are doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different result. You need to change your trading pattern and behaviour.

Nature of market is RANDOM and UNCERTAIN.

Trade-by-trade basis, everybody can win thru luck. Or even with a series of winning trades, but may hit by one big loss. So MANAGE RISK is one of the keys to success.

Need to change behaviour to go from point A to point B.

Need to acknowledge the weakness and acquire it knowledge to change it.

Know something is good but not enough. Must be willing to change and do it is the key.

Current Reality --> Explore Alternative --> Plan, Act, Review, Adjust --> Success

Need some motivation to get it thru and change. Motivation - Money, Income, Better Life Style...

Major key is to manage a series of losing period psychology. Control emotion as we have no choice to feel the stress due to anxiety but we have choice not to react to it.

You need to have a strong desire to change. Only when you want to succeed as badly as you want to breath then you have the secret of success.

It is ME that is in control of my trades!
