Paul conducts webinars every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. For details and a full line-up of upcoming live events, please see the DailyFX Webinar Calendar.

The following are the clichés we discussed in today’s session: Psychology and risk management is 90% of trading; Trade without emotion; When in doubt, get out; You won’t go broke taking profits; Let your winners run and cut your losses early; You’re only as good as your last trade; The trend is your friend; Don’t catch falling knives; Buy the rumor, sell the news.
