Weekend Reading For Mar 24 - 25, 2007

In "Weekend Reading" I'll collect what I thought were the best posts and articles for the week from various bloggers.

I only focus on posts and links that relate to trader improvement or trading in general.

It's that time of the week is this weekend's edition:

  • If there were a trader I'd like to become more like, it would be PinoyTrader - here he shows us how he achieves his great consistency and how he's able to pull all that money out of the markets in How I Prepare For The Trading Day

  • Kirk at The Kirk Report outlines the four principles of luck and does a great job of explaining how we can use it in Getting Lucky In The Market

  • Prospectus, one of the great contributors over at Move The Markets, had this interesting article about stops, which led to an interesting discussion about it in What Is A Stop Loss For Anyways?

  • It seems like many traders these days are using Opening Range Breakouts in their trading and Brett Steenbarger gives you a few more pointers in doing this a little more successfully in Trading Opening Range Breakouts

  • TraderGav looked deeper into his trading to try to figure out what was causing his mediocre performance so far this month and I too have had the same problems with the things he discovered in his post entitled Stop! Wait, Wait...Somethin' Is Going Wrong Here

  • Corey had another great article about regret and how it may interfere with our ability to trade and lists some great resources at the end of the article in Regret Aversion

  • Richard Beddard at Interactive Investor Blog had this great compilation of market related blogs in Best Of The Blogs (thanks to all who submitted this blog to be included in the list!)

  • Finally, TraderGav had some more great quotes from the greats of trading and here he posted a Quote From Gil Blake

  • "Regret Aversion" is one thing that really hurts yuur trading. Just remember, each day is a new day. How you did yesterday is already in the bank so don't worry about it, and just trade.

  • Thanks for the links JC, and for providing the links...there's always something of interest here, even for a lowly currency trader!
