Banking profits too early is one of the most common issues i’ve come across in the last 5 years i’ve spent coaching others. It’s an issue I had to solve for myself too. Over the years i’ve picked up a number of techniques and ideas on how to prevent myself banking profits too early. This weeks podcast focuses on one of those ideas.
The Trading the Trend podcast was created by active trader Chris Chillingworth to share insight, ideas, tips and experience on how to improve as a trend following trader. Self described as a british bearded trend follower who likes rock music, wine and formula one racing.
Trend Following is a strategy that does not make predictions on the stockmarket, but instead looks at reacting to what the price of a market is actually doing. There is no attempt to be right, on the contrary, Trend Followers expect to be wrong most of the time. They focus on killing losses quickly and letting winners run to ensure profitability.
Trend following does not utilise fundamental data to form opinions on what the markets are about to do. It is all about finding a system that works and focusing your energies on executing it accurately.
