Trading can sometimes be a pursuit of amazing frustration but it does not have to be so. When done properly, trading should be as simple as finding low risk opportunities and turning them into risk free trades. But how do you do this? What is needed in order to find and manage profitable trading opportunities?

There are 5 essential elements to every successful trader. When all these elements are combined, you will increase your odds of becoming a long term profitable trader. When executed correctly, your trades should be profitable and if not, the loss should be at a minimum. And yes, a successful trade can also be a trade that did not make you money. As success is measured on how you managed the trade, even the trades that did not work well can be viewed as a positive experience.

In this Free 2-Hour Workshop, you will learn these 5 Essential Elements:

Education: Creating a trading plan is all about finding your edge and applying it to the markets. It is about knowing what trade setups to look for and how to determine your entry and exit strategy before any trade is ever taken. In this section we delve into trading styles, tactics and the psychology of trading.

Technology: The right technology means everything to today's professional trader. Access to special ECN's, live charts and the ability to enter and exit trades instantly is crucial. No trader should be without a professional trading platform.

Institutional Cost Structure: One of the biggest expenses a trader has is their cost structure. In addition, there are ways in which you can route trades so that you get paid from the exchange thus increasing your profit potential. In this portion we show you how to minimize your costs so that you can maximize your returns.

Risk Management: Some call it money management, others call it trade management. We choose to call it risk management because managing risk in trading is something very core and very essential. With proper risk management, an account can grow very quickly when the trader does well and diminish only slightly when bad trades are encountered. We will show you how our traders are taught to manage risk by following our trader progression chart.

Access To Trading Capital: In business, the lack of sufficient capital can be the difference between success or failure. With trading, it's no different. This is the most important element of all because without capital, having the above four elements means nothing and with this final element, we will show you how you can trade using the capital and leverage of others.

So join us in the Affinity Online Trading Room as CEO and Professional Trader Michael Di Gioia teaches how The 5 Essentials of a Successful Trader can help improve your level of success and turn you into a Professional Trader.

The Affinity Trading Group is proud to be one of the premier American pioneers in the use and education of the Ichimoku Trading System. Forex Trading with Ichimoku Clouds takes you on a revolutionary journey that will change the way you look at and trade the Forex Market as well as other markets (Stocks, Futures and Commodities).

Ichimoku Kinko Hyo (Pronounced: Ichiii...Mooooo...Kuuuu) is a technical trend based system that powerfully illustrates support and resistance values in a simplified form and is considered an extension of the very popular candlestick charting system. In fact, this system was built on the idea that at “one glance” you should be able to easily determine whether an instrument is in equilibrium (consolidation) or out of equilibrium (trending).

In this unique event you will learn in a step-by-step method how the entire decision-making process is implemented from triggers, entries and exits. In addition, you will be shown how to back-test a trading plan in order to ensure that a successful system has been developed that fits your personality and circumstances.
