The Real Secret to Successful Trading

Do you find yourself getting impatient, jumping into a trade too early … only to see it eventually come to the level you were waiting for, but by then the losses are mounting and you don’t feel comfortable holding it any longer so you stop out for a loss.

Or does the setup you defined show up but you don’t feel confident so you hesitate and don’t take the entry …only to watch a really great trade move on without you?

Or after hesitating and missing the entry do you feel like you are missing out so you chase the trade, getting in at a really bad spot only to have it retrace and stop you out for a loss?

Or do you want to be right so badly that you don’t honor your stop, letting it go against you until the loss becomes so large it drains your account?

Notice that all these actions are driven by a feeling not, the rational information the charts are presenting.

And that’s because our decisions are always driven by our emotions … always! Even when we think that we’ve come to a rational decision … if we were to truly look at the emotion underlying it, we’d find that it was aligned with a rational thought. But if we try to make a rational decision that does not align with our underlying emotion … the emotion will win out every time.

And the latest findings in neuroscience are confirming this. Antonio Damasio, neuroscientist, founder and director of the USC Brain and Creativity Institute argues that emotions are a crucial component of decision making. He recently studied a group of people who suffered damage to the region of their brains where emotions are generated. These people no longer had the capability to feel emotions … and what he found was that although they seemed normal and were able to think rationally, they were incapable of making even the most simple decisions, like what to eat, or what shirt to wear.

Since science has proven that we cannot ignore our emotions and hope to achieve our trading goals. What do we do? Embrace them!

These emotions arise as a part of a protection mechanism that develops for our protection. So rather than trying to ignore that, we suggest you learn to work with it. To learn from the emotions that arise and use that to inform your trading plan. Rather than allowing them to operate unconsciously and sabotage your trading results, use them to lead you to finding the method of trading the fits your style and works with your strengths.

For almost 20 years we have been providing in depth training that has empowered more than 4000 people to successfully use trading to achieve their goals.

I wanted to let you know that I had taken your course in the fall of 2013. I took your advice and used demo accounts for the last quarter of 2013. I switched to real money trading account in the Near Year, when I finally felt comfortable. Following the lessons taught to me by you (don’t jump on a moving train, peaks and valleys, EMA..etc), I wanted to let you know that I have been successful beyond my own expectations. Thank you very much – taking the Learn-to-Trade course was, by far, the best decision I made in my business career.

I took your course in 2008 and loved it. Since then I have been using what I learned at Learn-to-Trade to nicely supplement my pension income. Wanting a carefree type of trading, I have for the most part just sold options and made a monthly income which is a nice addition to my pension. I know I never would have made this kind of trading income without Learn-to-Trade. Thank you!

Hi George,

I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing work on the tutorials especially Options trading.   Prior to joining, I had underestimated the quality of the trainings but they certainly far exceeded my expectations. Only I wish I’d found you 5-10 years ago!
