Education

Practical Education
I believe anyone can improve their trading.

If you’re new to trading, or looking to put your toe back into the water, then I believe I can help.

My practical educational services comprise a number of levels;

  • My Book,
  • My Models and
  • My Daily Study Guides

I compliment the above with;

  • Pathway to Sustainable Trading
  • Insights
  • Presentations and
  • Workshops

My Book
My educational help begins with my book The Universal Principles of Successful Trading (Wiley, 2010). It’s become an international best seller having now been translated into Polish, German, Korean, Japanese and simplified and orthodox Chinese.

It’s inexpensive and within it, I share my philosophy and approach to trading.

And guess what, unlike the majority of other trading book, I don’t discuss/review/explain in detail any entry technique. Not one. In my opinion, day to day combat instructions (setups, entries, stops and exits) are secondary to the importance of understanding and embracing the primary universal principles of successful trading. Like building, you need a strong foundation of trading knowledge before you can hope to achieve and maintain sustainable trading. It’s a good book.

It’s the first port of call for anyone looking for my assistance to help them.

If they like what they read their next step is to gain a robust positive expectancy trading methodology. A complete methodology that will tell them when to trade, whether to buy or sell, where to enter, where to place stops and where to exit. Traders can certainly consider one of my models for their trading methodology.


My Next Book
As a heads up, my next book will also be a valuable educational resource.

I hope to release The Universal Tactics of Successful Trend Trading in 2019. In this book I will focus on how to approach and develop a positive expectancy methodology. I expect it to be as well received as The Universal Principles of Successful Trading (Wiley, 2010).

My Models
My educational effort continues with a number of simple mechanical models that I make available off this web site.

Although I reference my educational methodologies as “models” please understand it’s only a label of convenience.

My models represent a complete education on how to trade a particular part of market structure which include;

  • Retracements,
  • Breakouts,
  • Mean-reversions, and
  • Top and bottom picking.

Each model represents a complete education on;

  • When to trade,
  • Whether to buy or sell,
  • Where to enter,
  • Where to place stops and
  • Where to exit.

The models represent the educational theory on how to trade.

I compliment the theory with a practical “how to” Daily Study Guide.

My Daily Study Guides
My educational services don’t end with the models. It continues with practical live trading through each model’s Daily Study Guide.

Each model comes with a 30-day complimentary subscription to a Daily Study Guide where owners can watch the developer (me) trade their own model in real markets, with real money, in real time. The Daily Study Guide is designed to offer practical educational instruction on how the model is applied in practical day to day trading. Its objective is to help reinforce owner’s knowledge and understanding of the model/methodology they purchase.

Students get to watch their teacher trade what he teaches.

Pathway to Sustainable Trading
My book, my models and the Daily Study Guides align with my Pathway to Sustainable Trading.

It’s a step by step pathway I encourage everyone to follow if they hope to achieve sustainable trading where they can expect to make money not only in the present, but into the future and beyond.


Insights
From time to time I share insights on how I review trading ideas. I hope the practical instruction will encourage other traders to do the same.

Presentations
From time to time I get invited to present to traders.

Over the years I’ve had the pleasure to address traders throughout the Asia Pacific region including Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Thailand, India and China.

But please note that as I’ve got older I’m tending to accept less and less invitations.

Workshops
I usually run an annual Workshop where I’ll teach a particular model/s and follow it up with 90-days of live trading.
