Don't just start trading, make sure your approach aligns with your mindset

 

It happens to many new (and seasoned) traders. You convince yourself that you need to participate in a particular trade only to find it doesn’t work. You start adding indicators and making it more complicated. You throw money at it, but still, it’s just not working.

Some instruments just aren’t great to trade and sometimes you need to find a trade that better resonates with your approach to the markets.

Today, I had a chance to speak with Pablo Lucena who is an experienced trader but has found some serious traction with my Apex Program. We cover a lot of information, but here are some of my favorite topics:

  • Building tools for the trade
  • How to trade stock options
  • Relative Value Trading Strategy
  • The most important information for managing options positions – Scalping Gamma
  • Changing your approach to trading
