12 tweets that will teach you more than a $4,997 trading course:
1) Relative Strength

Watch which stocks are green while the market is red

Institutions are most likely buying those up
2) Less is more

If you disagree with this, you're probably not a profitable trader

Take 1/2 the amount of trades you normally do and see what happens
3) The Market Doesn't Care About Indicators

You really think the funds putting millions of dollars into the market are "buying off a 9 ema"???

Get rid of your indicators

Just watch price and volume
4) Sell Options

Market makers, funds, banks, pretty much everyone other than retail is on the opposite side of your weekly OTM option

Collect premium and make money every week
5) Short Term vs. Long Term

It's easiest to trade opposite sides of the spectrum

If you're looking to take swing trades that take 3 weeks, don't.

Either go small time frame or invest

No Middle Term trades
6) Risk Management > Everything

It doesn't matter if your an emotionless robot with a 90% win rate.

If that one loss you take ends up greater than all the winners, you'll never be profitable
7) Don't Paper Trade

Paper trading should only be used to get comfortable with a trading platform.

Trade with real money, small size so you can feel emotions

Trading with paper will hurt you more than help you
8) Keep Your Job

I trade full-time and I love it.

I also did it after I had a year of consistency and 1.5x my salary in savings.

Don't think you can go full-time after a month of profits

Give it a year.
9) Consistency > Profits

My 5 year old nephew could walk out of the market with profits tomorrow

but he can't everyday

A losing month being consistent teaches more than randomness
10) Withdraw Your Profits

Stop trying to grow $1,000 into $1M

You can grow/compound your account and take out profits at the same time

will keep you disciplined
11) Stop Strategy Hopping

Stick with one concept your good at (support/resistance, balance theory, breakouts, etc.)

If it's not working, develop a stricter criteria/more clearly defined strategy for entries and exits
12) Intuition

Trading for over 5 years, you start to get intuition for when something will happen

It will take time, but once you fully understand how the market really works, you'll get it

I've traded for 6 years and this ONE strategy is all you need to become consistently profitable

I've been using it for 2+ years consistently because it keeps printing

Take 30 seconds to learn it for yourself:🧵 Image
This strategy is based on taking advantage of retail traders

It's called the "STOP HUNT" trading strategy

Here's what it is👇
Let's look at $QQQ on a smaller time frame example:

First I look to identify where a recent high or low is

Here we can see a double bottom which is a great sign for a stop hunt strategy Image

90% of traders fail because of their lack of discipline

Here's how I MASTERED my trading discipline in 21 days using 2 simple methods: 🧵
Being able to follow your strategy is crucial

The more you distract yourself, the more money you'll lose

Here's the first method that made me a disciplined trader👇
1. Being Disciplined in your LIFE

You simply can't be a disciplined trader if you lack discipline in you regular life

You need to have routines that you can stick to

Such as...

Here's the exact 5-step morning process I go through everyday...

that made me $2,690 last friday on $SPX alone: 🧵 Image
1. Draw Major Levels

Trading institutional levels are the backbone of my trading

To see how I draw my levels, read this thread (after finishing this one):
2. Identify where balance zones are

Where are choppy areas of price?

Where would price be in expansion?

How is price in relation to where balance is?

It took me ~3 years to become consistently profitable

But if I had known what I now know...

I'd have become profitable after 2 months

Here's 10 secrets I'd tell myself:🧵
1. Listen to others

Don't be listening to the random on Twitter who just started out

But if someone with experience and a professional in their field gives you advice...

take it.

They know something you don't.
2. Focus on one

Although learning everything over the years has helped..

I would have been successful much faster had I stuck to one process (day vs swing, penny vs options, etc.)

Strategy hopping only leads to more losses

I went from losing $15,000 in 2 years to making $15,000 every month because of one change:


If you're not trading naked, read this thread: 🧵 Image
Before I dive in, I first want to say that I am a huge advocate of doing what works for you

If you use indicators and they help you make money, than don't change anything.

This thread is just to show how getting rid of indicators changed my trading and it might change yours👇
There are TONS of indicators out there:

- Moving Averages
-Bollinger Bands

What do all of these indicators have in common?
