We trade the markets in order to profit, but the reality for inexperienced traders can be very different. Most of the time profits are there for the taking but amateurs allow gains to slip through their fingers or they grab too little too early. This leads to a downward spiral of frustration and confusion as money flows out of their account. In this presentation Ian Murphy will provide practical solutions to these difficult challenges by sharing powerful technical indicators which monetize market moves and take timely profits at appropriate levels.
The correct placement of protective stops is a balance between whipsaw and lag. If stops are too close to the price, we risk getting whipsawed. If the stop is too far away, the risk/reward ratio might not be worth the effort. Dynamic protective stops which respond to changing volatility are the solution. If you're trying to catch a defined move with a swing trade or following a trend, Ian Murphy's presentation will show how to effectively use volatility based protective stops to maximize a trade's potential while controlling risk.
