I'm going to have to delay my own webinar a bit, sorry. As some of you may know, I've been fighting a respiratory illness for over six months now, and it has taken a lot out of me. I thought I finally had got past it late November early December, only for it to resurface a couple of days after Christmas with a vengeance and really do some damage on me. So the last few weeks have been very tough, and I've had no time to prepare for a webinar scheduled this week.

I'll update again when I get this more under control.

Mike

Hello Mike, I hope you will soon resolve your health problems

I was wondering if you can let people know if there's a difference in the use of platforms depending on if the person is trading from the US, Canada, Europe or another country.

And hope you recover soon. The respiratory illnesses can last a while sadly ><

Part II will be on my short list once the June 4-year events (18 of them) are completed. That is why I've left it on the upcoming calendar, to remind me...

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)

Mike,

Is this Webinar still on the calendar?

Long time trader here looking to make an overdue switch to a new platform. Since the options out there are completely overwhelming, this Webinar would be a great way to get a grasp on things. The forum has lots of info but a video with everything gathered under one roof would be awesome.

I look forward to seeing this come together

looking

I'm assuming there is no part two. I've searched through the webinars and can't seem to find it. Is there another webinar that covers the same topics?
Thanks,
Brian

Practical and Pragmatical


If you want to start on the right foot, as a trader or a good decision maker in all aspects, you become practical and pragmatical. If you learn the true definition of both, and apply them in real life, you would by far (in my personal opinion) make better decisions.

When you become practical and pragmatical you move from the realm of hope to the realm of reality.
This is when you question ideas that look good on paper and ask if things would be the same in real life.
It is not an easy task to be practical and pragmatical because the sense of hope leads us in a different direction.

Look at many moves you have made as a trader: courses you bought, methods you applied and traders you tried to copy just to realize that you have adopted practices you could not execute.

You will eventually find your way as your own decision maker, but the path to practicality starts with you rejecting 90% of ideas being thrown at you.

Good luck,
Matt
