You’re Scared to Make More Money

You’re Scared to Make More Money

I know that most of you look at the title of this post and say no way Anthony, I want to make more money!  Of course you do, but do you have the mindset in place to actually do it? The other day I was playing golf with my brother Mike.  I was off to a great start and getting to the 5th tee I realized I was -1 under par (for those of you that don’t golf, I was playing really well).  I have had good starts before, but never this good. Now I started to think about shooting under par.  Taking my mind away from focusing on the next shot.  I...

A Warning Sign For S&P

A Warning Sign For S&P

Yesterday on Periscope I spoke about the action I was seeing in the Bond/Treasury Market and the S&P (ES).  With yesterdays weakness in the ES we did not see a bid come into the Bond/Treasury market.  I actually saw the opposite as they were all trading weak together.  If you look at the chart below you can see the 30 yr, ES & 10 yr have been moving together over the past 5 days. In my opinion this type of action could be a problem for the Stock Market.  There is a ton of money invested in this Risk Parity trade and even a small...

Trading Instincts vs Trading Rules

Trading Instincts vs Trading Rules

In my interview last November with Denise Shull I spoke about using Trading Instincts vs Trading Rules.  I received several emails and messages about this so I wanted to write a post about it. Like most new traders I began my search for trading rules by searching successful traders to see what they were using for their rules.  Once I had a bunch of rules to choose from I picked the ones that I felt were the best.  I had no way of knowing whether these rules would work for me, but I figured because successful traders were using them they...

Trade What You See, Not What You Think

Trade What You See, Not What You Think

Another weekend of reading blog posts of people telling me why I should be bearish the stock market. These traders have been wrong for months and in some cases years! Yet they seem to have some of the biggest followings and social interactions on twitter. I believe this is the case because some traders are searching for validation for their reasons to be short the market. I am in no way disrespecting these traders as I read their posts because I have a ton of respect for them. I actually agree with a lot of their reasons as to why the market...
