95% of traders fail because they can not master the the art of trading .The art is the ability to apply the method most suitable for the market conditions ,under stress and with psychological baggage, no single method will work in all market conditions and no system will work consistently.It will take a few years of experience and practise to skill-fully execute and make profit .

The trading game is played in the mind , and knowledge ,experience and skill has to be gained .!t is a long hard road to becoming a successful trader.It may take several years to become a master , at knowing what method to apply in certain market conditions.It can only be learned by intuition , as most of the advice and information in books , courses and also given on forums and the internet is by internet marketeers , clueless amateurs ,trading failures and Zoo characters.

1)4 hour trending system ,used by most professionals
2)Trend retracement method , it is used by most professional traders
3) Intraday trendline system on 15 min
4)Key support and resistance ...used by professionals
5)Ma cross on 15 and30 min with refined low risk tight stop entries
6)High probability Breakout method based on fundamentals
7)ranging market system.
8)Scalping method based on longer time frames like 15 min , 30 min and 4 hour trendlines


Trading books are written by trading failures , so what are you going to learn from failures?These people make from writing books and selling courses ,and are hiding the truth why they failed as a trader , and are actually making more money from writing and selling courses .Some of the information in books can be useful , but new traders have no way of knowing what information in books is correct , and which information can be applied to profitable trading.

I recommend you read as many books and threads on trading and psychology , psychology is 80 % of trading success. Physchology and discipline will be more useful in the learning experience .

The only book written professionally , was trading currency cross rates.All the other authors , it seems never made it to a professional trader level , and are possibly trading failures.

If a trader is not succeeding ,the solution maybe to hire a coach , trading the above methods A coach is someone who attracts talented people and then teaches them the fundamentals of good performance.

The eight trading methods are very simple ,trading/investing are very simple processes and we human beings try to make it into something much more complex.1) follow the trend; 2) let your profits run; 3) cut your losses short; and 4) manage your money so you can stay in the game.Trading is as simple as these strategies and can be applied on different time frames ;

Why wouldn't the coach just write a book which would be easier and more cost effective ?

A book would be more cost effective , but is more difficult for readers to absorb written words , it is difficult to absorb ,process and implement information when mind is overcome by emotions when trading.Trading is an art , a picture is worth a thousand words , therefore the book would be huge.

It would be easier to work under a coach , who will help traders implement the methods to high standards.Each method can have 3 variations on entry , exit and trade management , to try and explain each to individuals in written words , it would become quite complex to understand.

The key to trading is experience , experience can be gained easily with supervision by a coach .When you are in sharky waters , emotions control your reactive responses especially when market behaves irrationally ,methods stop working temporarily , technical anylysis set ups start failing and trends breakdown.This can not be achieved by just reading books.

For the person who finds it easy learning from a book (like myself) that is an ideal solution -- if the book is well written. But some people's minds just work differently and find it much easier to learn with a human instructor. Then of course, there's the (95%?) who can't do it either way!

The secret to Trading is to "see" and understand the market ......
Once you "see" the market for what it is - it becomes a whole lot easier to understand ....

Only then can you start to consider how to trade it

until then you are a blind man looking for a needle in a haystack....

If we are talking analogies then the Matrix movie trilogy is the closest to what I am saying above

True!You can only see the market after maybe spending thousands of hours on screen time , and you only understand the market after making observations in screen time , and also by reading books from professional traders .I would say 95 % of trading books are written by pretenders , frauds or failed traders , they leave something out of the books ......those important and vital pieces of information ,without this information failure is inevitable.

The floor trader method is free , it is used by professionals ......make up your own variation to suit your style.

Many of these trading methods are not new or original. Often they are based on information found in trading books or articles written decades ago. In some cases they are old trading methods repackaged in new books (or made into software), and sold at high prices.

You want to see a up channel formed , rather than just a single bar ,single bars can be false moves .Buy at bottom of channel , you can use all sorts of variations using moving averages , support/resistance and breakouts on trendlines.
