Excellent Opportunity in BLOK…by the Numbers Monday, February 22nd by, Ken Long

  On Monday morning, Ken saw the huge opening gap (-8%) in BLOK. He then applied several of his standard trade concepts – Hybrid Frog, Minimum Manageable Risk Box (MMRB), SSC, Kata2, and a Sniper Exit to capture a nice move. BLOK’s price closed the gap and the whole trade was over by mid-morning as illustrated by the two charts below. Ken covers these standard trade concepts in his Hybrid Swing Trading Workshop which will be starting its next session in early April.    

Psychology Patterns: Internal Conflicts by, RJ Hixson

  Have you ever thought or said something to the effect, “On one hand, I . . . while on the other hand, I . . .”? Has that kind of thinking ever affected your trading? If so (and it’s likely so), you have an experience of some internal conflict — which is entirely human. Different parts of you want different things and when two parts see something differently — as they often do — you wind up in conflict. Most typically, your logical mind takes control and makes a …

The Game Stops: This Time It’s…Well — Like Every Other Time by, D. R. Barton, Jr.

    We were told in 1999, that “this time, it’s different”. We were told…the internet was changing everything. And we were told that valuing companies with no earnings and small or no revenues was going to last forever. That madness of crowd’s mindset drove a whole index up 10x in a few short years:   And then it came back down to earth. For anyone who’s been trading or investing, you know that wasn’t the end of the story — the NASDAQ has been a pretty good (!) place …

Psychology Patterns: Dominant or Overwhelming Feelings by, RJ Hixson

  Do you know anyone with a feeling or emotion that seems to rule their life? Do you have such a feeling or emotion? Trying to trade effectively with this can be challenging if not outright self-sabotage. If it’s not you, consider someone who is continually anxious, angry, fearful, or sad and imagine how that emotion could cloud their ability to perceive price action, make good decisions (like entries & exits), and react well to adversity in the markets. Rather than trading with clarity, decisiveness, and focus, they would experience …

January’s Broken Barometer by, D.R. Barton, Jr.

History is laden with strategies that worked for a time, then became ineffective, and were subsequently abandoned. Examples can be found in product development, marketing, and even comedy. But the easiest place to understand this phenomenon might be in military battlefield tactics. From the ancient times when bow, arrow, and horse were battleground standards, no real significant technological advances came to the military until gunpowder was first employed in the 14th century. For thousands of years, military tactics rather than technology were of paramount importance on the battlefield. One of …

Mental State Control By, RJ Hixson

  Have you ever traded when you were angry? When you were scared? When you were bored? If you haven’t done any of those, you haven’t traded very much yet. Trading from a mental state of anger, fear, or boredom — or other non-useful emotional states, happens for less experienced traders and these conditions invite mistakes — conditions where you don’t follow your rules. More often than not, you lose money when you don’t follow your rules. So what do you do? You change your mental state. But how do …
