His advice for technical traders is great but it is still a bitch to apply everything he said with discipline.

good traders don't use time based periods they use range per bar based periods so they focus on price size in ticks and not how many ticks were generated in a given time which is very inaccurate...especially when deciding on stop losses...
Great info! Thank you for your time.

I'd say the best set of videos that I've found so far. I can see why he's successful at it. Almost no emotion in his explanations. Just facts.

Also, anyone who 'coaches' people on trading technique clearly isn't trading successfully. Why would he bother getting other people rich when he would rather be making himself rich?
Holy Moly (1 year ago)
I disagree. Do you remember seeing videos about a 110 year-old living in Turkmenistan, or whatever, asked what he puts his longevity down to? No exercise, a gallon of wine a day, 60 cigarettes, etc.? It's selective, reverse logic. If you cherry-pick someone who has succeeded at something, and then ask him how he did it, his explanation is valueless. There is no reason to suppose he was anything other than lucky (because you cherry-picked him after the event).

I take about 2 to 8 trades a month depending on the situation of the trend. You can make about 200 to 1000 pips a month depending on the trend

When you care more in how to manage drawdown of active trade in progress, instead of giving importance in making profits, then you start understanding what the trade is about. You start understanding the importance of time-frame, the size of each partial bet to place (position trade) vis-à-vis your capital size, and how long you should wait out or in to enter or to exit a trade; how and when to pyramid your position, and then, loses and profits will behave as you expect to behave and you can keep your emotion totally out of equation. Drawdown oriented trade with correct risk management are what you should focus on for a higher probability trade. Temporary losses (pullbacks) during a trade are natural outcomes to manage. Nobody can avoid pullback losses; but how you handle pullback losses make all the difference I share my above belief with you based on my experience in trade.

Any platform as MT4 for example has specific to trace any kind of "study" like MACD, average, etc. So go there and find MA and select exponential ones. The "testing very small lot" will serve you to not place stop-loss when you are trading in real money against money market brokers because they are going to trade against you. It is like playing poker showing your card to opponent. Trade with broker house that charges commission but do not trade against you. Good trade, and remember: trading activity is not exciting, it is boring. If you want excitement go to cassino.

+Takashi Murakami Thank you for your reply. Yes, I've started a demo account and first I was stressing too much looking at short-term changes:-) Now I have some demo trades open that are more weekly/monthly, like a short for SPX500 that I opened in mid-Dec and that is working well. I think soon I will be ready to put some cash on it, but not too much, just play money. I like what you say about testing the waters with a tentative amount and then adding on. Makes sense. I need to read up about EMA curves, I don't know what they are. Thank you again!
Takashi Murakami (1 year ago)
+k. g First thing is that there is no one instrument (fundamental or technical) that will allow you to say what will be the next market move. Therefore the best for you if you are a chart trader is to trade with longer time frame (daily, weekly, etc). Of course do not expect to start winning money from the very starting of enter position but you should be sure that there is a trend (long trend) and you are trading in direction of this trend. In order not to stress with 1, 2 days of price going against you, you should place a amount that you can afford to see the loss without affecting you. If you are correct, the trade will be in your side after some days (or weeks) and you will know that. It is the time to increase your bet increasing lots to your previous one. Then you should know where to exit by taking profit in the coming days (or weeks). There is a lot more to write to you but it is not possible to give you my +15 years of trading experience. In order to have a instantaneous view of market move in your chart, trace several EMA (exponencial moving average) curves using Fibonacci numbers (3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, etc). Shorter the time frame bigger the EMAS to use. Hope it will be useful. Bye.

You sounds very knowledgeable. What resources would you recommend to a beginner trader? I've started a virtual account on eToro and I am keen to learn properly how markets behave and how to construct one's strategy.

This is an extremely useful video, as he is explaining the practical core aspects of his trading strategy. For any noobs out there that did not understand, he's talking about trend trading. He illustrates with 3 chart timeframes, Daily, 240min and 1 hour. He identifies his general trend with the weekly and daily charts, then checks price action on the lower time frames. So price may pullback or retrace on a smaller timeframe like the 1 hour. Then you place your pending order/entry order and wait for price to come to you. Hopefully, the price should execute your and then take you back in the direction of the larger trend. Of course, you should confirm this with your offline chart analysis. Patterns, your levels (trend lines), Fibonacci or key indicators like the RSI or Ichimoku.

This is are the type of people you can refer to as expert or great trader sharing from their wealth of experience, and a struggling trader will benefit immensely by listening to all the video for this interview over and over again.

thanks for UKspreadbetting their effort on catching and sharing the ideas of experts.
Adrian Bräysy (2 years ago)
with pending orders, I find it works quite well to trade reversals. that way you can place it where the price has to go for it to count as a reversal.

great video, all professional traders have a lot in common, i think those are the things that separate them from the rest.. i will never stop learning, i know i will get there..

Keep it tight, keep it close, smooth scalp helps - no mention of channels despite all markets form channel patterns. Never leave your screen saver on when trading. Mechanical mistake.

Hourly is the time frame he uses to time his entries, but for most retail intra-day traders this is still way too big, as for an hourly you are still going to need a pretty sizable stop loss of around a minimum pf 60 pips for an hourly frame, which is fine if your account is in the thousands but no goo if it is smaller. The hourly is the biggest TF I actually have open during the day, although I'm keeping an eye on the H4 from time to time, and I'd say that the majority of relatively small account retail traders need to go much smaller to time their entries, down as small as 10 seconds, and if you think I'm talking bull, I'll happily send anyone some examples of trades off of these small time frames. Remember, you don't have to capture the main moves to make a lot of money trading, you just have to capture a few of the small ones with a well managed strategy in place. Great videos though, Francis Hunt definitely knows his stuff.
