What is different in this boot camp compared to previous one..

The time available and technology available to do this allows me to do things differently and go in to significant details. In a 2 or 3 days boot camp it is a race to focus only on  important thing. That is not a constraint here as it is week long effort along with pre recorded videos.

Swing Trading all setups will be covered with added emphasis on execution. It will have Deep dive built in . It will have details on setting scans, charts, orders, etc.

Working People all details will be covered. Again will have videos on all scans , process, daily opportunities and managing them . 401k, TQQQ, Country in Trouble,

Day Trading . All details of my setups and how I execute.

Market Monitor : entire section going in to details of all scans , chats , colors and how to use it.

Situational awareness : details of how to develop and use it

Psychology: details of possible ways to handle trading issues. visualization

Trade Execution

OLC Organizing like crazy to make profits 


The technology allows us to drip content , so once you finish say a deep dive you get to see bonus videos.

Technology allows us to drip more videos post bootcamp based on questions.

Because lot of this is pre recorded it gets over problem of maintaining flow without getting distracted by unrelated questions by participants

All and all this will be very exhaustive bootcamp with anticipated 100 plus videos and background material .

Hello fellow members,

I have just gone through the EURO Bootcamp and I'm very impressed.

Euro Bootcamp Review: I'll keep this short and concise, the best trader education I have come across.


April Bootcamp 

Same topics as Euro bootcamp but with more emphasis on tactics.

Are the bootcamps very different?

I attended both. There were nuances of learning that were new to me in the second one, so I would recommend getting both. I believe I can get a quick ROI on my investment in these bootcamps as I make the time to review and peruse them, and as I improve my daily practice from knowledge gleaned from them

Swing Trade Only if you understand the game

Posted on 7/12/2021

 


The objective of swing trades is to generate .1 to 5% return on your account per trade while keeping draw downs as low as possible.

Swing trading methods became popular as antidote to trend following methods that were very popular but were leading to wide swings in account and draw downs.

As cost of trading decreased and spreads between bid and ask narrowed they became mainstay of active traders and hedge funds, Wall Street banks and now quant funds.

Swing trading has existed for hundreds of years for the same reason, that is it allows you to grow account without big draw downs like trend followers have. It helps you avoid the ulcers involved in trend following.

At one time largest amount of capital was allocated to trend following methods. Today only relatively modest amount is in pure trend following funds.

Swing trading also evolved as a way for small accounts to grow their account rapidly by doing several trades and not seating in dead trend periods. Schwab lowered commissions to 39 dollars (from typical 100 dollars plus each way) and that led to swing trading boom. Subsequently commissions have kept on decreasing. Now they are zero.

Ever since then Swing trading as a style as coexisted along with position trading and trend following and has become main style of trading. For all the sophistication involved in quant funds, at heart it is just swing trading method using high powered computers.

When you gun for 3 to 5 day moves, you have to do several hundred such trade in a year to make a difference to your account.

Success rates in swing trading is 50% or so. Success rate in trend following is 20 to 25%.

Which means you need to do upwards of 500 plus trade to make big returns in swing trading. A

Swing trading is primarily high volume game with low per trade profitability. You can increase your per trade profitability by increasing your per trade risk or using 80 /20 sell and hold tactic I use.


For a beginner I personally think swing trading is easier to learn than trend following or position trading.

Things you do hundreds of time , you can learn quickly. If you are going to make only 10 position trades in a year, by the time you realize whether you learned anything , years will be gone.

Do a deep dive

Posted on 7/08/2021

 

If you want to trade a particular setup then do a deep dive on that particular setup on past 1 to 3 years market data.

Look at at least 1000 to 3000 past examples of that setup and note down your observation. From that study create a pattern book.

When you do deep dive look for variation of the setup. Same setup has many variations. Note that down.

Study the range of moves the setup makes. Note what happened before start of the setup. Note what happened during the setup progression. Not what happens when the setup ends. Note the number of days of market moves. Note the magnitude of the moves.

When you do a deep dive like this on 1000 to 5000 setup in short time period of days or weeks you understand this setup and it becomes part of your way of thinking as you have invested significant brain energy in that activity. As a result you become good st identifying it in real time.

Psychologists have word for it called Mastery Experience. That experience changes your beliefs about that particular ability to find that setup.

Once you do a deep dive and you master a pattern next challenge is to execute it in real market environment. This requires innovation and process flows. You try one way of doing it , if that does not work you try another way till you find way to do it. Process hacking is how humans develop ways to make things work.

There is another way you can speed up this process. You watch others do it and then mimic their actions. Human learn many processes and gain knowledge this way. Procedural knowledge is primarily gained this way. The psychologists call that vicarious learning . This can speed up learning very quickly. This is why humans like watching how to videos. Many things we learn this way in single trial.

While you are doing deep dive or attempting to trade this particular setup , the social surrounding and messages you get is important. If while attempting this say your boyfriend keeps telling you , you will never make money trading or it takes years to become good at it then you will be influenced by that social conditioning. As against that you are in an environment where you see other doing it successfully and encouraging you then you put in more effort and try to make it work. Psychologists call it social conditioning.

To do a deep dive like this you need to be in healthy state. If you are suffering from a bad cold on a particular day you may not be able to do this activity. That is called psychologists somatic effect. Our performance depends on our physical and mental well being.

These are proven techniques to speed up learning skills and especially Procedural skills.

So if you want to dramatically improve you trading do a deep dive.
