41. Act On Your Conviction Day Trading The Markets


When you learn a successful model, it is time to act on them.

When I first started as a Commodity Broker in 1988, I of course started to work with clients. Back then, we were the main source of recommending trades to them. But as things changed, clients started to make their own decisions and as commissions started to drop. 

This is where I started to learn how others made decisions. 

Trading is not easy, I call it the "unknown". Meaning, no one knows 100% of the market is going to be up or down in the next 5 minutes. NO ONE! We have good indications that it could be up or down, and it very much could be, but every so often what happens? The market turns the other way and creates a big potential loss. Then just minutes later, after getting stopped out, it does in fact go to where you thought it was suppose to go. Right? Happens all the time! 

But what ever happens in the markets, have a game plan and act on it. I can't tell you how many times we were down in the morning just to come back by the close. This is a mind-set game of trading. 

Follow the rules and act on the models you feel have the best outcome for YOUR STYLE of trading.
