Foundation of Technical Analysis: Building a Trading Strategy- the complete series and webinar archives

In this episode of our bi-weekly webinar on the Foundations of Technical Analysis, we dissect a few of the setups we’ve been trading into the close of the week/month/quarter. It’s always fun reviewing profitable trades that went well, but breaking down a losing trade can be a much more effective drill to objectively assess your performance and to help identify issues with your strategy.

Sometimes you can be right, but at the wrong time- bottom line, recent trade performance shouldn’t filter into your analysis and maintaining an objective outlook on price is key. Here’s a review the week’s performance and a look at what worked, and what didn’t.
