Trading Your Way: Develop Your Personal Trading Plan

tradingyourway.jpg "Trading Your Way: Develop Your Personal Trading Plan" outlines and provides a framework for developing a personalized trading strategy. It can be a starting point for a new trader or provide alternatives for experienced traders looking for a different approach.

The author is a trader and has included material that has helped him in developing his own trading plans and strategies. He refers to many other books, web sites, and material that will help you to increase your knowledge base. This book will help you to identify and resolve many of the problems traders face such as, effectively executing trades, maintaining sound money management rules, and overcoming psychological barriers.

No one can predict what the market will do from day to day with any certainty. If we could, we would all be multi-millionaires. Trading is the study of probabilities based on market analysis and reality or mass perception. New traders don't realize how difficult it is to be consistently profitable. Statistically, approximately 85-90 percent of new traders go broke within the first year. They fail because they fail to plan and develop the required mind-set.

From a young age we are conditioned to evaluate and analyze our surroundings before we take a step forward; it's part of our survival instinct. We make choices based on our analysis of a situation. If our choices are consistently successful, we become more confident in our ability to analyze and make positive choices. This mind-set becomes a part of us and the natural way we think. If you have had success in other areas of your life, it's easy to think your natural mind-set will create success in trading. Unfortunately, in many cases it guarantees failure. With this natural mind-set, you are not psychologically prepared when your analysis is wrong and the trade goes against you. Without the right mind-set, a sound trading plan, and good money management rules, you are like a deer caught in the headlights, wondering what to do next.

Trading requires many elements working together to bring consistent profits. "Trading Your Way: Develop Your Personal Trading Plan" will explain how these elements are used together to develop a comprehensive trading plan and the required mind-set to trade your plan. You will also learn how to use the "Trade Manager Pro" software to manage your trades, your portfolio of trades, and the associated risks that come with trading.

To become wealthy at whatever you do, you have to be in a place that provides the opportunity to make substantial amounts of money. The financial markets provide that opportunity with billions of dollars changing hands every day. Learning how to capture some of that capital through trading can increase your ability to provide consistent profits. Approximately 80 percent of the millionaires in North American increased their wealth through the financial markets.

Our goal is to help you develop an affordable trading plan by teaching you the fundamentals required to trade successfully and be consistently profitable.
