JUSTIFICATION FOR A TRADING PLAN

  • Successful business plan will guide you to success, think of your trading plan as a map; it is a constant reminder of how you will consistently pull profits from the trading stock indices.

Keep you on target, read it everyday and stick to it.

IF YOU HAVE A GOOD TRADING PLAN AND YOU ARE DISCIPLINED ENOUGH TO STICK TO IT YOU WILL BE SUCCESSFUL.


INDICES TRADING STRATEGY

Our Stock Indices trading strategy will only open bullish trades, this is because stock indices moves are based on the principle that stock prices always move up over time, therefore the stock indices that track these stock prices movement will over time move in a general upward direction. To open a buy trade we shall wait for a price pullback and buy these dips.

Stock Indices Trading Plan � Example Of Trading Plan

 

MONEY MANAGEMENT

  • Day trading - Low risk High return method
  • Trade when I have a high risk to reward ratio 3:1 or more
  • Never trade more than 10 % of account total account balance
  • Never risk more than 2 % on a single trade

 

MINDSET/PSYCHOLOGY

  • Trade without Emotions (greed, fear, anticipation, impulse, bias, overexcitement)
  • I trade what my eyes see not what I feel.
  • I will be patient.

 

My job is not to be the trading system!

It is not to decide which trades looks promising.

That is the job of my Forex trading system. My system has a set of rules which tells me this is what I follow. Do not get caught up in price action and make rules as you go along.

 

MY JOB DESCRIPTION IS

To sit patiently and wait for my system to indicate that it is time to enter or it is time to exit. And then with great focus I execute trade as planned.

Taking trades not indicated by the system, second guessing the system and not taking trades given, hesitating and getting in late, anticipating and getting in early are all common place and boil down to lack of faith in the system and not having a burning focus on accurate execution.

 

GOAL: To have 100% undivided focus on mastering my ability to execute my Indices trading system accurately.

The more you develop the ability to step back from market movements and watch the market dispassionately, waiting for a signal to trade, the easier it will be to witness the fluctuations of your emotions without getting sucked into them allowing them to throw you off your game.

 

WEAKNESS

  1. I am greedy.
  2. I overtrade
  3. Make a list of all your weaknesses that are interfering with your trading. This is the first step to help you overcome these weaknesses. Use trading psychology to help you overcome them.

NB: by writing down your weaknesses you will start recognizing them as you trade, once you do this you will start to avoid this mistakes and your trading will improve.

 

GOALS

  • To focus on exit just as much as I do on entry.
  • Always protect my account using stop loss, money management methods, trading with the trend and always following the rules of my trading system & trading plan.
  • Never second guess or go against my trading system.
    To always keep up my discipline.
  • Follow all the rules of my system and never break them.
  • Trade fewer times and execute all my trades correctly.
    Trade what I see, what the system + charts are telling me.
  • Sit patiently and wait for trading signals from my trading system.
  • Achieve consistent profitable trading results.

Write down goals and focus on achieving these goals in your trading

 

FOLLOW THIS SYSTEM

This is the most important part of creating the system.

Always follow the rules

Stick with the trading rules

Be disciplined and patient enough
