The time has come to let the low liquidity market chop do what it has to do while we are away getting rested & refreshed; ready to come back strong.

I will neither be updating the blog, nor posting on twitter next week.  All screens and feeds off, not checking any charts; trying to set a good example ;-)

Back soon, stay safe and keep it tight!

No Weekly Wrap-Up & Outlook…

In Miscellaneous on April 11, 2014 at 10:30 am

Just a quick note to let you know that I am sorry but I will not be able to post the  Weekly Wrap-Up & Outlook this weekend; depending on workload and markets, I will try and do something on Monday.

As usual, I do my best to find time for these but occasionally, other commitments get in the way.

Have a great weekend, catch you all on Monday.

1,000,000 Pipping Visits…

In Miscellaneous on March 5, 2014 at 7:24 am

Just a quick note to thank all of those who contributed to reaching this milestone. It’s not a ‘big deal’ but I am still humbled and surprised that we actually hit the mark seeing that the blog is not promoted, runs no ads and is therefore very low key in nature. ;-)

Once again, thank you very much for all of your visits and support!

thank-you

2013 Thank You!

This Week…

In Miscellaneous on December 23, 2013 at 3:14 pm

Just a quick note to let everyone know that I will not be posting much this week  and might just check-in around NY opens, effectively in ‘holiday mode’.

Still debating if it’s worth doing a Sunday video on December 29th but will be back in the office for a full day on the 30th.

Enjoy, get rested/refreshed  and come back ready for action ;-)

Happy-Holidays

Back on Monday…

Have a great weekend and catch you all on Monday, a little after London open, for a new week in the markets  ;-)

The time has come to let the lower liquidity / lower odds market chop do what it has to do while we are away getting rested & refreshed and ready to come back strong.

I will neither be updating the blog, nor posting on twitter next week.  All screens and feeds off, not checking any charts; trying to set a good example ;-)

Back soon, stay safe and keep it tight!

facebook Update…

Just a quick note to let you guys know that I have setup a facebook account to stream the twitter feed.

I will not actively be on facebook but more and more followers were asking me to set this up, so here it is:

  • 50’s FB Stream > HERE.

Hope this helps those that were looking for this feature ;-)

Friday Updates & Outlook Video…

In Miscellaneous, Videos on June 13, 2013 at 4:35 pm

Just a quick note to let you guys know that I’ll be out traveling through Sunday and will therefore neither be tweeting / updating charts tomorrow, nor posting the usual outlook video on Sunday evening. Normal service will resume next week ;-)

Catch you all for London Open on Monday, have a great trading day Friday and a great weekend.

Stay safe and keep it tight.

Here we go, it’s that time of the year again… time flies when you are doing something you love. It’s really incredible how quickly the year has gone bye, feels like yesterday when I wrote the 2011 note.

This year I would like to start by thanking all the active followers that continue to take the time to comment on the blog and share the content that I provide. This is by no means a requirement and I am well aware of how these things work but it is always rewarding to see people appreciate the content, so thank you once again, I really appreciate it.

As I always say, there is no right or wrong way to trade, just whatever works for you but it is important to remember that this is a business and that it needs to be tackled seriously, with discipline, in order to put yourself in a condition to simply have a chance of succeeding. Having said that, there is a way in which markets tend to move and it is essential to ‘really look and focus’ on price action and strive to understand the context of moves, overlaying everything with market psychology.

I haven’t put out a specific post but there are a couple of changes to the Weekly Webinars for 2013. First of all, we are moving all the sessions to 8:45 EST and a 75 minute duration and secondly, the monthly payment plan has been updated to reflect the additional runtime but especially, has been simplified by removing the one-off entry fee. We might still experiment with timings but this revision should be interesting as it gives us 45 minutes for preNY rundowns and then 30 minutes post the cash open. The sessions will be back up and running on January 2nd and I’m really looking forwards to them ;-)

Remember that trading is an extremely hard way to make a living. Don’t let anyone tell you it can’t be done but equally, don’t let anyone give you the false impression that this is easy and that there are shortcuts. In my humble opinion, a real trader is formed through consistency and longevity and despite the fact that not everyone is going to be able to function in this type of business, if tackled with dedication, discipline and devotion, it can be one of the most rewarding ways of life, if not ‘the only way’, for people that are truly wired to be traders.

I would also really like to take this opportunity to thank all of my students, especially the ‘usual suspects’, another great year, more to come in 2013! As usual; no crystal balls, no magical indicators, no holy grails…  we just  strive to be humble students of price action and market psychology.

To all, Health and Wealth for 2013!

Thank you once again,

50
