    in Finance

    rcmTradingDesk - Your source for all aspects of trade navigation - From building trading systems to managing risk


    Co-Hosts Bret Rosenthal and Bill Jacobs breakdown in graphic detail actual trades occuring in real time and teachable moments of recent vintage. 


    Today's focus 


    1) Traders must clearly define roles coming into a trading session and stick with the role. ex. Hedging vs Trend trading


    2) Order your thinking with this easy three step process: A) Have an idea B) Have a setup e.g. a trigger C) If trigger is with the trend idea = X exit strategy If trigger is against trend idea = Y exit strategy


    3) Never stop fighting until the fight is won. Enter the day with a plan and execute all day. Day trading is a process of percentages and probability. If you quit after the 1st few trades that don't go your way you never allow your system to function. A) don't allow P&L intra-day to cloud your approach


    4) Ride markets don't try and beat. No emotional response to market direction
