How to build a ‘hot-rod’ trading system

Trading is a very personal endeavour. What suits one person perfectly might torment and irritate another because it doesn’t fit their trading ‘personality’. But when you can chop bits from one system and slot them straight into another there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. In fact, there’s no reason why you can’t build your […]

My thanks to Andrew!

Thanks very much to Andrew David, as ever, for his football insights in last week’s eletter. Andrew was instrumental back in the day, when I had no grey hairs and did not look like an apprentice sumo wrestler, in the evolution of www.delayreacttrade.com, my football trading service.

7 steps to winning the internal game of trading

I was flicking through an old trading journal of mine the other day. It’s a bit tattered around the edges but those pages contain absolute pearls of wisdom.

How to get faster results from your trades

How to get faster results from your trades

An email arrives from a particularly peeved trader. Two sentences he wrote say it all… (1)‘ It’s almost magical the way I can see several promising trades but choose only to trade the two that stop me out, while the others usually go on to win.’ Now doesn’t that sound like a familiar story? If you’ve […]

A new type of race card

My publishers have organised a risk-free 30 day trial of a new type of race card, the GeeGeez Gold race card. It is a comprehensive race card with a great visual representation of a horse’s form by going, class, course, distance, and field. Green for good Orange for Ok Pink for not so good.   […]

How to kill a trading account in 5 easy steps

How to kill a trading account in 5 easy steps

Autumn 2006. It was a Friday. Rumours were flying… there were big stop orders sitting 32 ticks below the current T-Bond price and the big players were going to go after them. All I had to do was jump in and get involved too. It made sense on the chart and I could smell the […]

‘Spreadsheet Millions’ method proven to fail

‘Spreadsheet Millions’ method proven to fail

Have you ever done the infamous ‘Spreadsheet Millionaire’ exercise? It’s where you layout a foolproof master plan that proves just how quickly you’re going to trade your way to a million. All by averaging ‘just’ a 2% daily return. Because how hard can it be? That’s only, like, one winning trade a day. Sounds easy, […]
