Foundations of Technical Analysis: Seeing the Forest from the Trees

Foundations of Technical Analysis: Seeing the Forest from the Trees

Michael Boutros, Strategist

In this episode of our bi-weekly webinar on the Foundations of Technical Analysis we discuss the intricacies of trade execution as well as how and when to recognize proper trade entries. Its important to always keep in mind that you will never KNOW with certainty the performance of a given setup beforehand- the point is to look for as much evidence to support your thesis and adjust your trade size accordingly, always keeping risk management at the forefront. Being trigger shy is often a sign of over-leveraged trading or a lack of conviction- each setup should always be taken on its own merits and trade size should be based on how much evidence is available.
