Becoming a Better Trader: Setting Logical Stops & Targets (Webinar)

Becoming a Better Trader: Setting Logical Stops & Targets (Webinar)

The “Becoming a Better Trader” webinar series runs every Thursday at 10 GMT time, with a new topic each week. To see a full schedule of all upcoming webinars, please visit our Webinar Calendar.

In today’s webinar, we looked at the important task of identifying stops and targets based on logic, not made up numbers; to use your analysis to identify proper levels before you enter a trade. Often times traders make the mistake of ‘telling the market’ how much they want to take out of a trade, instead of using the same analysis which got them into a trade, to then take them out of a trade.

Also, it’s important to know at what point you are most likely wrong on a trade, your ‘line-in-the-sand’, and then allow for the trade to work by giving it breathing room. This prevents one from ‘churning a position’ and alleviates some of the stress a position can have on a trader when the PnL starts whipping around.

It wasn’t all talk today, we also looked at recent trading examples in order to help demonstrate the principles discussed.
