II.4.17: Top Ten Rules of Trading


1) Have A Plan And Stick To It - A trading plan should consist of a position, why you enter, stop loss point, profit taking level, plus a sound money management strategy.

2) Never Add To A Losing Position - Adding more to a losing position will lead to ruin. Consistently averaging down into losing trades will almost guarantee that you will not succeed in the stock market in both the short or long term.

3) Always Have Stop Losses - Do not hold on to a bad trade hoping that the price will go up. Most likely, you end up losing more money. First look at how much you have in your account and then plan on only risking a small percentage of it on any given trade. If the trade goes against you by this certain percentage, you must exit the trade.

4) The Trend Is Your Friend - When the market or stock is bullish, go long. On the reverse, if the market is bearish, you short. Never go against the trend. Often times, the trend line will give you guidance in a stock for years, not just weeks or months. But these support and resistance lines are often bumpers, or guardrails, along the way. Stocks often drift toward their support or resistance lines and then bounce back in the opposite direction.

5) Focus On Capital Preservation - You main goal is to preserve the capital. Do not trade more than 10% of your portfolio in a single trade. If you don't do this, you'll be out of the market very soon.

6) Be Emotionless - Do not let greed and fear influence your trade. Do NOT trade when you are disgusted and angry. Do NOT trade when you are overly anxious. Do NOT trade when you are feeling overconfident.

7) Do Not Overtrade - If you have too many positions, you tend to be out of control and make emotional decisions when there is a change in market. The total commitment you make on any entry should be relative to a reasonable expectation of the profit potential for that trade. Each trade is different and must be weighed on its merits.

8) Know When To Sell Your Stocks – It is easy to buy. Selling is the hardest part. Take profits when you have them. You will never go broke taking profits. There is always other stock out there that you can get into.

9) Think Like A Fundamentalist, Trade Like A Chartist- If chart is not bullish, why be bullish. The fundamentals may drive a market and we need to understand them, but if the chart is not bullish, why be bullish? Be bullish when the technicals and fundamentals, as you understand them, run in tandem.

10) “Markets Can Remain Irrational Longer Than You Can Remain Solvent.”- John Maynard Keynes. Illogic often reigns and markets are enormously inefficient despite what the academics believe.
