Dear Traders, First and foremost, my thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by Ian. Ian, now once again a hurricane, is threatening to carve a new path of destruction through South Carolina on Friday when it roars ashore north of Charleston.After a big sell-off day, the market has stabilized today. CCL and NKE were the biggest losers of the day, both dropping significantly on disappointing earnings. You know the situation is bad...

Dear Traders, President Ronald Reagan once said that the “nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.” I do not think any investors these days are really in agreement with that sentiment. Financial markets are blowing up everywhere in the world, and governments are stepping in to support them. Japan has stepped into the markets to save the collapsing yen, and Europeans are scrambling to control...

An electronic online trading platform is a computer software program that is used to place orders for day trading. A trading platform is different from direct-access brokers themselves, but I often see traders confusing these two as one.  The trading platform sends and places your order at the Exchange so the direct-access brokers can clear the order for you.

As you read your tape, you are no longer looking at your charts. Rather, you are utilizing your Time and Sales, your Level 2, and your volume and price analysis in order to observe the market in real time. Each choice every other trader is making...

Mountains fascinate me. I spent much of my youth in the mountains, and I still thoroughly enjoy being able to explore the higher altitudes of our world. I began alpine climbing in college, and later I developed a passion for the financial markets. When I am asked by new traders and aspiring traders how they can become successful in the stock markets, it is perhaps not surprising that my responses usually compare trading to climbing....

In this webinar, Andrew will review his use of moving averages. He will explain how he uses them to determine his entry, exit, and stop loss; how he employs them to find trends; as well as how he utilizes them to identify important support and resistance levels. ...

Do you know exactly what you need to do to make profitable trades, but find yourself repeatedly getting in your own way? Do you become overactive in the market, revenge trade, ignore limits, or hesitate to take on risk because you are afraid to make a mistake? These are all ways that your mind and emotions can sabotage your trading process, even if you are the most technically skilled trader. This webinar will explore how...

In this webinar, Dr. Reid will provide you with a method that can be trusted to instill the courage you need to take only those “A” trades, despite any doubts and fears you might experience as you sit at your trading desk.
