Lessons from the live room

The intent of the room is to maximise trader profitability in a focused environment.

Yesterday’s live trading highlighted the importance of avoiding trading in high-value zones.
There is no directional bias during high value, so regardless of being long or short, you can’t generate trades which skew the reward to risk in your favour.

When the price is trading at high-value, a relatively high number of buyers and sellers are agreeing to do business. As a result, price will remain in this area until business is complete.

I’m sure you’ve heard of “choppy markets” and traders being “chopped up” in such environments. Well, by observing value (see area highlighted between dotted lines), these areas can be avoided.

So, when do you take trades?
Yesterday, we took advantage of the aggressive move to the downside by trading during a low agreement zone. Morning prep highlighted these areas so traders were primed.

March and April scorecards

The scorecard is a reminder that no single trading day or week is significant, and trading performance should be measured in meaningful sample sizes.

Intraday trading: what it looks like

The chart below reiterates the main aspects of intraday trading:
  1. I lose pretty much as often as I win
  2. Some of my trades deviate from my own rules, self discipline is a constant work in progress
  3. I keep my losses tight and where I can, look to make a little more on the winners
