April 25 11:50AM

“transform trading from blu to megatron, I’d like to.” – Gary W.

Reply from Ken: Lol Gary, right. And a side tip, it’ fun to watch high-energy action movies (and concert videos) to get motivated for trading. Think of your trading like going from A to B, from where it’s at to where you need to be… the trick is getting trained by an actual trader who can show you the “stepping stones” to get across the river, from one side to the other in your trades.

Takes time, lots of small shifts — that’s what I’ll be covering in the webinar. The best part is, many of the techniques I share are near-instant fixes that are easy; not complicated new trading setups, nor any special software/indicators or other bs like the vendors pitch.

Tip #2: make a quick list of “More Of/Less Of” that you want to do in your trades, such as “more of, only buying new 2-day high breakouts, less of trading on days where the S&P is inside the prior day’s high/low” for example.

April 25 11:37AM

“Discipline is a serious issue which affects my trading. By maintaining so, i would have been 25% profitable rather than seeing my account Red.” – Raja G.

Reply from Ken: Hi Raja, you’re right about discipline… you’re ahead of the pack because at least you KNOW your numbers (25% more), which many traders don’t. One of the tactics I’ll be teaching about is how to use dollar-cost stops vs percentage/chart pattern ones — and this technique alone has been a huge help in my own trading because it helps a lot with discipline.

Listening to trading coaches out there, I hear a lot of soft fuzzy crap that doesn’t work for a real trader. Actual traders know, it’s all about the money, about our P&Ls and how to trim small stops fast, and add to winning positions… and that “good exits feel early”, as I’ve published in my industry articles. This is just one of many quick and easy transformational tactics I’ll be revealing in the webinar — see you there.

April 25 11:33AM

“I really need Ken’s help to transform my trading.” – Jeff E.

April 25 11:30AM

” to have 100% believe in method and myself and follow my rules exactly.The method is first and there is much rubbish out there. A good mentor is a invaluable asset” – Mark B.

Reply from Ken: Hi Mark — you’re right; having a process, a method to follow is useful (like this flowchart I developed for daytrading; applied to various swing and other tactics). You are so RIGHT about the rubbish out there. Be sure to require PROOF that people selling trader training are in fact real traders (most aren’t, they’re con men and their affiliate armies) and CREDENTIALS from trading vendors before buying. Right now anybody, from a laid-off autoworker to a fast food person can hawk trading stuff, and that’s not right. Then they get this MLM-type affiliate approach to get dozens of their bs friends to cross-pitch junk to their lists, to unsuspecting traders.

You’d be shocked to realize most trading vendors aren’t even actual traders, and are therefore unqualified to teach you, because they CAN’T TRADE. Most are phonies, talking about charts but can’t and don’t actually trade. Ask for Broker P&L screencap examples of real trades they’ve done (like mine) before buying from them. Don’t get sucked in by a bunch of emails and fancy websites and opt-in forms on “namesqueeze pages” (that’s where they make you enter your email before seeing some bs video, just so they can flood your email box with a bunch of bs hype emails later)… stop the madness. Learn from a real trader, with video testimonials from traders they’ve helped (like I show) and industry articles and more… not the phony wannabe vendors. Because you guys (and ladies) deserve better. /rant

“entry and exit techniques that filter out the “heat”” – Russ W.

Reply from Ken: Hi Russ, I like the way you put that. And the market does deliver heat, all the time. One of the tactics I share in Transform Your Trading is specific entry/exit filters to put in place before (and after) each trade entry, to help potentially avoid getting shaken out of trades that go against you, and how to make that part of your everyday trading approach.

April 20 5:50PM

“Ken, I always have the most trouble trying to juggle multiple trades. You seem to make it look so easy. tell us what the trick is.” – Dave V.

Reply from Ken: Hi Dave, what makes it easier is simply setting up buy-stop orders Before the market opens each day. So if I see 10-15 different stocks (or ETFs or whatever I’m trading) that I spot a specific chart pattern in that looks tradable, I’ll put in a buy stop order above the premarket trading range, so I get automatically filled during the opening hour. That way I can a) focus my energy on position sizing and trade management vs scanning and b) approach trading with better discipline and followthrough since I’m not frantically looking for what to trade, but rather How to trade it once my initial small-size “pilot” trade has been filled. Good question, thanks (I get that one a lot).

April 20 9:08AM

“Discipline, discipline, discilpline to follow my trading plan and placing stops to eliminate the emotion and stress in my trading!” – Wendy M.

Reply from Ken: Hi Wendy, I understand. Quick tip for everyone: instead of just using chart pattern only based stops (for example I like to stop out of a long swing trading position if it hits .35 under a 2-day low in my stock trades, or .4 for intraday trades), I’ve found that I like using DOLLAR cost stops instead. That’s what I do in my longer term swing accounts especially; for example if a swing trade is against me by $100 then I place a stop very close to the current trading range, to limit my risk.

That helps with discipline a lot. For example if you say ahead of time before every single trade, “no matter what, I’ll never take more than a $100 stop-out” (and combine that with position sizing), then that can potentially make a big difference, and to help you avoid second-guessing yourself based on chart patterns alone. Test it out, with papertrading. Good trading. More to come in the webinar.

“I’d like to know that I have my charts set-up correctly, there must be differences between daytrading, swingtrading, and that I have the the times correctly set. What indicators work best for each daytrading and swingtrading.” – Janice J.

Reply from Ken: That makes sense, Janice… especially because many traders don’t know the correct chart setups and patterns to use. For example, there are some specific chart entry and exit signals that work better on a longer time-interval chart (15-to-55 day), than on shorter 2- to 5-day charts.

Knowing the difference, and being able to combine those signals properly to help decide where to enter, is an important skill to acquire, and a personal transformation in how to approach your trades, that I’d encourage traders to learn more about with the training I’ll be delivering.

I hope in this webinar you will share a few more names of people, books or techniques that helped you in developing your mental skills as a trader.” – Sam S.

April 12 7:28AM

“Knowing how far to expect a V reversal to run is something I would like to learn, if it’s even possible to determine in advance to some degree.

Is it going to quickly complete the “cup” pattern or stop at the first sign of support or resistance, such as one of the floor trader pivots, the previous days close, prior horizontal support resistance, etc.? See AMZN on 4/10 and 4/11 as an example, since it was ‘all over the place’ both days.” – John U.

Reply from Ken: Great point, John… being able to decipher the “V” reversals (aka cup patterns, which I have used for thousands of actual trades over the years since the late 1990’s), is one of the most important skills a trader needs to acquire.

Tip: check sector charts when in question about a specific underlying stock, as well as tier-1 lead stocks in that sector. So for example when deciding to pull the trigger on AMZN, it’s worthwhile to check other internet- and retail-sector lead stocks (GOOG/BIDU/WMT/SHLD etc) to see what Their chart patterns are doing, then using that data to help decide how aggressively (or not) to trade the same-sector stock you’re looking at, like AMZN. More to come in the webinar, thanks for posting.

” Looking forward to listening to another one of your webinars Ken. I never fail to pick up a “new trick” from you. This is what I’d like to learn more about for this particular webinar: Re Daytrading, how are daytrades influenced by overall market action? For example, I’ve notices that when futures are up on a day that is historically down (stocktraders almanac style) I tend to get thrown out of both my long trades and short trades, as first the market bolts out of the starting gate up (there go my short trades) and then the market comes flying down (there go my long trades). What clues will tell me when it is best to exit the longs and when best to put on the shorts. Thanks for your help Ken.” – Helene I.

“Need a rule based trading plan to trade with confidence. Some successful traders recommend stocks under $30 while other successful traders will insist on stocks over $30. Perhaps we need to find an approach to trading that fits our individual circumstances, goals, and personality… PS: The rationale for trading stocks under $30 is it is better to risk say $10,000 for 1,000 shares of a $10 stock than $70,000 for 1,000 shares of a $70 stock if you are looking for a specific short term gain in a day trade….Need a trading plan to trade confidently. Thanks.” – Stephen C.

Reply from Ken: Hi Stephen – personally I like stocks between $5 and $70; and that’s one thing I’ve taught for years, is to look at the ATR/average trading range of the stock, relative to it’s price, to determine whether or not the leverage makes it worth trading. For example I don’t trade GOOG since the intraday point range isn’t enough, given the price of the stock. Or for ETFs, I prefer FAZ over SKF (financial short ETFs), and I prefer trading the QQQ over the SPY, since those have the same charts, with better leverage in FAZ and QQQ, compared to SKF and SPY. Good point; that’s an example of the kind of transformation/change that traders can consider testing out, is range/leverage points like that.

April 10 4:39PM

“I am often too slow in my decision whether to enter or not and then the good entry point is gone and I do not dare to enter any more. It is like wanting to enter at the perfect moment but rarely making it although I patiently wait for it and when it comes I doubt and dare and wait and then it is gone. How do I overcome this?” – Karin D.

Reply from Ken: Great question, Karin. What I found works best for me is to be more eager to re-enter on new highs, and trade everything lighter size. That way I minimize front-end risk on the first trade, while also not missing out on the inevitable breakout that would’ve occurred without you, eg the secondary later move that may occur later. I use buy-stop orders so these secondary fills are automatic. Don’t worry about getting the ‘exact’ entry price, the big goal is to make profits by being right more often, net, than wrong from your P&Ls. Otherwise pullbacks and false breakouts will chew up your trading account with stops. I’ll cover more in the webinar – thanks for the comment, makes sense.

“Need to find better system for entrys and exits that is more consistent.” – Lee C.

Reply from Ken: Right, Lee — gaining consistency in trading and having the confidence to enter, based on the entry signals that make the most sense, is important. To get there, it helps to gain the skills to make changes from what you’re doing now, to what you should be doing a better job of, instead. I call these “replacement skills” for traders… I’ll show you how that works in the upcoming webinar… thanks for posting your comment. Consistency is a big challenge for most traders, agreed.

Reply from Ken: Hi Dan, thanks – glad to hear it was helpful (the TradingWeekAhead.com video posted a week ago)… will do re training for trade management and other topics in the upcoming webinar; I’ll see you there. Quick tip: many traders tend to over think a “trading plan” and put too much time into overanalyzing things. I’ve found that traders who do best tend to keep things simple, but know exactly how to manage their money once in a trade more successfully. I’ll cover that in the webinar, too.

” I need to change the pattern of several small wins and one big loss that wipes out the wins.” – Patsy G.

Reply from Ken: Hi Patsy, that’s a common challenge — been there, done that myself, many times in years past. The strategy I found that works best is to DECIDE on a maximum dollar stop, Not a chart-pattern based stop, and always use that. For example if a long stock swing trade gets .35 cents under a two day low, that’s a good chart-pattern based stop… but I like to instead say “if a swing trade gets over $50 against me, that’s a caution that I need to keep an eye on it, but if it gets to $100, then I need to take the stop out right now (either a full position stop-out, or a partial stop)”. I can always re-enter later on a 2-day high breakout if it comes back to life. That way, you keep the losses as small as possible, while still staying “alive” in the trade. Great question, thanks. More to come in the webinar.
