Welcome guest, why not register to get access to more of the site?


This site is currently inactive as I have decided to move away from exclusively trading Forex in 2010 and as such will not be taking on new coaching clients in this area.


I have resumed my focus on coaching as a stock market mentor where I run a success guaranteed stock trading mentorship program


Additionally, you can now get access to what I consider to be the best stock options daily trade alert service.


Of course, I am biased and with a success rate fluctuating between 68.2% and 72.4% it is hard not to be biased.


If you do want to follow along with what I am doing every day you can get access to my daily stock market report 



You can read the step-by-step Bollinger Band Trading Strategy Guide - this is my main active trading strategy

Until next time

happy trading

Active Trade Management distinctions

Thanks for the excellent article on active trade management.  I need some help please on a couple of distinctions.

  1. If we don't allocate a portion of the trade to a swing trade, do we just do ATM on the remaining portion as an intraday trade?
  2. Is it purely personal preference whether to allocate a portion to a swing trade or make it purely intraday?
  3. Exiting.  I guess we continue to manage the trade actively.  For the swing portion, I guess we are looking for a trigger to get out.  For the intraday portion, if we get to the end of our day and want to stop monitoring, do we close it out or do we just leave our last stop loss and leave it to do its thing overnight?
