    Sorry Ladies & Gentlemen I could not make it. I would like to know what strategy Sarah suggested. If you can post it on this meet-up site, it would be appreciated

    May 13, 2014

    • Giuseppe B.

      Hello Stan, we missed you :) . Sarah dedicated most of the time talking about the different areas of her trading plan, made up of goals, risk management, rules, among others. There was not too much time to dive into the details of the trading method. She uses discretionary entry and exits using technical analysis and averages. As per position sizing she enters multiples of 3 contracts, with phased exits. She risks between 3% an 5% of capital at each trade and it works for her. The best thing would be to buy her book, which I recommend. Hope this helps.

    Dear All,
    almost there. I am very proud to be in the host position tomorrow and introduce you to an excellent Canadian trader who made it from scratch.
    Sarah started up without knowing anything about finance and trading. In fact, she has a background in education. With determination and hard work she built her understanding of the terminology first, and then of the trading process, how the different instruments work and finally, of course, effective chart reading.
    I love the fact that she values the motivational aspect of being a trader, besides the trading objectives and the all-important psychology of trading.
    Tomorrow's discussion is going to provide an opportunity for new/experienced traders to learn an effective and complete way to put together the relevant aspects of defining trading objectives, identifying opportunities and executing using rules.
    Sarah will share her unique MYTRADE plan with us: a great way to start or improve trading.
    See you there! Bring your friends
