easy money

hey you,

you know those opportunities in the market that don`t come around very often; once a day,
once a week, once a month or once a year on average to take out that BIG, FAT CHEQUE...........
you looked at the chart and said: Hell I see this blahblahblah and that blahblahblah and its
confirmed by that blahblahblah indicator
and if you jump in, you`re sure that your rate of success will be above 80%....
where`s my change, how much is in the bank, can I borrow from the in-laws?
and you throw it all in the pit..........

those opportunities..........can you tell me ALL about it?????????

Opportunities come along every day but in my view borrowing money to trade is probably one of the worst things anyone could do when considering trading.

I`ll try hard oatman

but what I`m trying to do is to locate BIG opportunities in different markets and leave the daily grind to somebody else..........
see: you have those people that only trade say 3 times a year when their market is just right and the money is for the taking and I would like to explore those possiblities too.

we all have our strategies - well I hope so - but I`m sure everybody see set-ups that are far better than normal, so which are those people?????????

vetten started this thread unfortunately I have nothing to sell, although who cant use a bit of money?!?

this tread should be called the SUPER STAR THREAD on here, the best of the best.

as you might know there are hundreds if not thousands of different strategies.
on stocks, futures, forex etc. etc
they probably all have their daily grind, but once in a while they will have situations
where the trader would like to bet the factory and KNOW he`ll come away with a fistfull
of money.
so I dont see why somebody cant collect all those great set-ups in different markets,
keep an eye out for them and trade them when they`re there.

better than the daily grind of little losses, break-evens and small profits.

man, that`s a thought!

so ok, maybe you guys can start and give me your win-win situations in your strategy
if you have one?????

Interesting discussion.
I may be wrong but even if someone gives you a winning strategy it will not work for you 90% of time.
I recon it has to suit personal style in some way.
Also I discovered that it is very difficult not to click at the wrong moment for some reason (even with winning system) then to just find yourself hypnotised by price action cleaning your pockets...

vetten started this thread nah, maybe I dont make myself clear: I DONT want a winning strategy!
no no please dont give it to me........

what I do like is the cherries in all the winning strategies. every winning strategy will have
a certain set-up that is almost guaranteed succesfull.
so if I have all those certain set-ups from all those winning strategies, well I`m king and
pope.

What you are searching for doesn't exist. Don't you think if we could identify these "low-risk bankers" then that's all we'd trade.

It's very easy to say with hindsight that a particular trade was a "classic" but what you fail to appreciate is that we are always looking out for them - and we trade other such similar setups only to find they don't materialise profits. Personally, I only trade when I think it's going to be a low-risk winner - but things don't always turn out the way you expect - the daily grind you mention something you can't avoid. This is where your money/risk management comes in - no matter how certain you are that you'll profit - you dont "throw it all in the pit" as you suggest, because if you are wrong only once then you've nothing left to trade with.

There is no such thing as guaranteed setups. The key is knowing the statistical probability of reward to risk incurred and positioning your size relative to it.
