Trading Wisdom - One Liners


  • Look at your trading as a series of probabilities, do not focus on any single profit or loss.
  • Want what the market wants.
  • Do your homework. Come prepared to each day’s trading.
  • Never take a trade on the open in the direction of a that day’s gap.
  • Don't risk too much of your trading capital on any single idea.
  • Remain flexible.
  • Believe what you see. If the market’s going up or down, it’s going up or down.
  • Anything can happen. The wildness lies in wait.
  • Verify your trading methods or systems.
  • Caveat emptor ("Let the buyer beware.") when buying a trading system or hiring a mentor.
  • Your own personal psychology will express itself regardless of your chosen method.
  • An opinion isn't worth much, your own or someone else’s.
  • Watch how the markets react to the news.
  • Learn from your mistakes.
  • Stay in the now. Don't trade yesterday, today. Don't trade tomorrow, today.
  • Don't worry about a missed opportunity. Another one is on the way. Besides there were several that just passed of which you were totally unaware.
  • If you don't risk, you can't make money. If you lose all your trading capital, you can’t trade. Find balance.
  • Markets don't go in a single direction. The trend will wobble on it’s way to its destination.
  • The trend is your friend. Unless you're a counter trend trader, and then only it’s end is your friend.
  • Tomorrow’s another day, a whole new trading opportunity. Be optimistic.
  • Forgive yourself. Take the lesson, and move on.
