The ULTIMATE Option Strategy forecasting tool - Probable outcomes, weighting and YOUR biases #2

Let's return to my analogy between sports and trading. I live in Toronto, Ontario (that's in Canada for all my foreign friends) and as most people know, hockey is a religion in this part of the world. Our beloved Toronto Maple Leafs are currently in a 40+ year drought in their quest for the holy grail of hockey, the Stanley Cup. To make matters worse, not only have the Leafs not won the ultimate prize in hockey, they have, for the past four years,… Continue

Probable outcomes, weighting and YOUR biases

In today's post I would like to revisit an earlier topic that I had begun writing about but consciously chose to put it on the "back burner" so to speak to address a number of requests detailing exactly how I use the m3 Money Management Modeler in my day to day trading. On March 19, 2009 I blogged about "weighting" http://fulcrumshifttrading.com/blog/?p=69&preview=true&preview_id=69&preview_nonce=d0b9149988

and its importance when… Continue

Dynamic vs. Static Position Sizing part #4

Dynamic vs. Static Position Sizing part #4

If you notice the above title "Dynamic vs. Static Position Sizing", you're probably wondering exactly when I am going to actually begin to cover that topic (Dynamic vs. Static). Well, how about now? In fact, even though this is the 4th instalment in the blog/web tutorial series, each successive post builds on its predecessor which I felt were pre-requisites. There would be no point in teaching you gamma… Continue

Dynamic vs. Static Position Sizing part #3

It's been a few days since my last post. I had taken a bit of time off and I have also been working on a new Excel trading platform which models out a brilliant trading strategy developed by my friend and colleague John Manley of Market Evolution Trading http://marketevolution.wordpress.com/ John is one of the best options trading strategists that I know personally and often times, as I have mentioned in previous blogs, I devote a good percentage of my time and portfolio to residual income… Continue

The current bear market rally will last for a couple of weeks before it turns down. Longer term indicators are still pointing to a bear market for a while yet.

Dynamic vs. Static Position Sizing part#2

Dynamic vs. Static Position Sizing part #2



In part 2 of the Dynamic vs. Static web tutorial series, I wanted to elaborate on where I left off in the previous video. The theme was that having the money to pay for something doesn't mean you can afford it. If I want to go and buy a Rolex watch for example, I have enough money to pay $7,000- $15,000 (I know they can go quite a bit higher than that but cut me some slack here !) to purchase one but can I really afford it? Everyone's… Continue

Dynamic vs. Static Position Sizing part#1

Dynamic vs. Static Position Sizing part #1



I was taught at a very early age by my father that "having the money to purchase something and being able to afford it are two completely different things". I had no idea that a lesson in my childhood would be so applicable in the world of trading. Allow me to illustrate. Within a hypothetical trading account let's assume I have $25,000 to trade. Let's also assume that I wish to trade the… Continue

Exiting a trade - All at once or scaling out of a winning position?? part 6

In this 6th and final web tutorial of the series, you will clearly see demonstarted, that seeking greater points when in a winning trade, is not always the optimal exit strategy. Probability plays a major role in the decision making process. Remember, the more points we strive for, the less likely we are to ever get there. How many times have you been profiting nicely in an open trade only to find yourself stopped out with at best a break even. What is even more likely to occur and is the focus… Continue

Exiting a trade - All at once or scaling out of a winning position?? part 5

In the 5th installment of this of web tutorials series , we now explore what happens when a trader, who has initiated a trade with multiple contracts, makes the conscious decision to scale out of his or her winning position. The choice to sell all contracts at a single, pre-determined profit objective ,has been passed over in lieu of attempting to turn a modest winning trade into a more substantial profit. However, as you will see, when attempting to "go for" more points your probability of… Continue

Exiting a trade - All at once or scaling out of a winning position?? part 4

What was supposed to be a 3 part series on how to optimally exit a winning trade has now climbed to 4 and will definitely reach 5, and perhaps go to 6.

As mentioned previously, after I had completed this… Continue

Exiting a trade - All at once or scaling out of a winning position?? part 3

Closing out a winning position is more complex than most traders have ever really considered. Trust me, I developed the m3 - Money Management Modeler to address this very issue. In fact, when I completed the programming of this platform, I was completlely caught off guard at the results that my own program was generating. I had expected a tool that would keep all the “numbers” organized for me so that I wasn’t always trying to calculate what I could make or lose and with “x” number of… Continue
