Developing profitable versus useless strategies

Recommended Posts

The best strategies are set and forget strategies.I set my option trades, place pending take profit orders,than forget about the trade.This eliminates all the trading psychology demons and disadvantages.

What is the point of wasting your life, on systems that you will never be able to implement on a live account?Most of the 5,000 free systems on forums and internet are free, because they are worthless.This is why they talk about 98 % failing on forums, then they provide 2500 free systems.


Find methods that you can trade that are profitable, that you can actually implement and make money.This is good for brokers and traders, traders make money and also brokers retain clients and make money every year, as opposed to looking for new losers to replace the previous losers.


It is rare to find good trading mentors, coaches and educators. Most have failed at trading and are the blind leading the blind .They do not know enough about trading psychology and the human brain, to be able to advise /teach others how to trade successfully.How can someone who does not have the map to the trading gold ,sell a map of it?




Look at the profitable  strategy , I post in the indices section.

If a good trader can earn a simple 30 pips consistently a day from trading , a trader can become a billionaire in 5 years


It is very clear in this thread   , why most traders on forums are not billionaires, it is because they cannot trade and they cannot make money in the long run. The human brain is wired to lose in the markets,this is why they are not billionaires ,psychology is 80  % of trading success.

If traders don't understand trading psychology, how can they devise a profitable method that is compatible with the human brain?If a profitable method is not compatible with real time trading execution, the profitable method is useless.They can not implement it to make profit


Here is a great psychology link and post for advanced trading psychology.An understanding of this subject improves the odds of devising profitable strategies that you can implement.




The method posted here includes many psychological edges, like patience, lower stress levels, managing emotions,  avoids fear of loss  or reduces fears, the need to be right , cognitive biases and many other psychological aspects.It takes care of these.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
