Do Routine Things Routinely By, Ken Long

Trading is all about taking action. That is, taking the right action according to your rules for Standard Work. We have Standard Work for normal conditions (what to do when things are normal) and we have Standard Work for abnormal conditions (what to do when things are interesting). Your relationship with your Standard Work defines your mindset, habits, and approach to trading as a serious person. In a legendary comedy routine, the ventriloquist artist Senor Wences would ask Cecilia Chicken how she knows that this egg is her “son.” Then, …

An Example of Applied Craftsmanship By, Ken Long

Being prepared to learn is more important for your personal development than any magic insight your teacher might give (speaking from my own 20-year experience in delivering graduate-level management and strategy education to a variety of student populations). The Modified Cornell Notetaking Method is a working example of how you might synthesize and organize a 2-hour lecture from our April 2021 Foundations training course in such a way that you get all the big ideas in a single, formatted, and organized sheet, including timestamps to key parts of the lecture …

We use our set of indicators to identify these through a statistical lens against historical norms. Once we have a manageable set of potential targets, we enter the preparation phase. Here we develop detailed decision points that offer favorable reward-to-risk ratios that give …

Trade Framing is our name for constructing a decision-support framework to trade symbols that are in a critical state. A Critical State is a moment when there is an abnormally large probability of: A larger-than-normal move, In either direction with a reasonable probability, In a Shorter-Than-Normal period of time, And where the “execution risk” is much smaller than the reasonably available gain, in both directions. When we find a critical state, we frame the trade in both directions by systematically answering the following standard questions: For a trade frame: What …

Coaching for Performance On the Soccer Field and In the Trading Room By, Dr. Ken Long

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a short essay about the principles of Instructional Coaching and how I use that framework to develop the courses I teach traders. The framework places a strong emphasis—a central emphasis—on learning by doing in small chunks with an additional emphasis on good, precise feedback on the small tasks that make up large skills. I experienced a learning moment this morning at a soccer camp, where I had to stop myself from overcoaching the young student campers. I needed to create space for my …
