Golden Rules Of Trading
Shilpa • onFinance 11 years ago • 3 min read
  • Plan your trades. Trade your plan.
  • Keep records of your trading results.
  • Keep a positive attitude, no matter how much you lose.
  • Don't take the market home.
  • Forget your College degree and trust your instincts.
  • Successful traders buy into bad news and sell into good news.
  • Successful traders are not afraid to buy high and sell low.
  • Continually strive for patience, perseverance, determination, and rational action.
  • Limit your losses - use stops!
  • Never cancel a stop loss order after you have placed it!
  • Place the stop at the time you make your trade.
  • Never get into the market because you are anxious because of waiting.
  • Avoid getting in or out of the market too often.
  • The most difficult task in speculation is not prediction but self-control. Successful trading is difficult and frustrating. You are the most important element in the equation for success.
  • Always discipline yourself by following a pre-determined set of rules.
  • Remember that a bear market will give back in one month what a bull market has taken three months to build.
  • Don't ever allow a big winning trade to turn into a loser. Stop yourself out if the market moves against you 20% from your peak profit point.
  • Expect and accept losses gracefully. Those who brood over losses always miss the next opportunity, which more than likely will be profitable.

  • Split your profits right down the middle and never risk more than 50% of them again in the market.
  • The key to successful trading is knowing yourself and your stress point.
  • The difference between winners and losers isn't so much native ability as it is discipline exercised in avoiding mistakes.
  • Speech may be silver but silence is golden. Traders with the golden touch do not talk about their success.
  • Dream big dreams and think tall. Very few people set goals too high. A man becomes what he thinks about all day long.
  • Accept failure as a step towards victory.
  • Have you taken a loss? Forget it quickly. Have you taken a profit? Forget it even quicker!
  • You don't invest ...You will lose.
  • You don't manage risks ...You will lose.
  • You follow tips ...You will lose.
  • You don't investigate before you invest ...You will lose.
  • You panic ...You will lose.
  • You want to speculate ...You will lose.
  • You don't understand your finances ...You will lose.
  • You don't use cost averaging ...You will lose.
  • You want to play ...You will lose.
  • You are greedy ...You will lose.
  • You place all your eggs in the same basket ...You will lose.
  • You don't know when not to invest ...You will lose.
  • You don't know when not to exit ...You will lose.
  • You can't afford to lose ...You can't afford to make a profit.
