Double Confirmation - How to make winning trades - Part 2

Yesterday I shared with you a discussion we had inside our AIMS Skype Live Trading Room. This is the second part of  that story.

Correct Mindset of a Trader:  

A trader with correct mindset will make a mediocre trading strategy look awesome but a trader with wrong mind set, will destroy a strategy with a very powerful edge.

In my previous post I said that Trading is 80% mental, 10% goes towards money management skills and strategies and the rest is divided as 5% for entries and 5% for exits.

However sadly, 95% of traders put 80% of their efforts towards the 5% of the equation in trading and that is The Entries.

The Perfect Entry:

They want to make perfect entries. They want to nail those entries that bring winners 100% of the time, double confirmation, quadruple confirmation. Something to put their mind at ease before entering the trade, something that say "this trade is going to be a winner". 

Being Wrong or Right

However I have bad news for those traders. Sadly that is not gonna happen. Because trading is not a game of perfection. It is certainly not a game of being wrong or right. Oh no.

You cannot manipulate things into your favour in the market. You cannot change the market not even a tiny bit. Trading is a game of probability.


The Self Similar Repetitive Pattern

You might have found a pattern in the markets and this might be a great thing for you. You'll be excited that now you will be able to better "predict" the market. But the reality is that all patterns have a certain "probability of success" attached to it. A certain pattern might give you an edge in the r form of 50% winners and 50% losers.

You may win lets say 60%  of the time or less using the same pattern, but the very same pattern that looked beautiful and produced 100 pips this time, that exact same pattern might appear again the next time still it may bring 15 pips loser.

A new trader is baffled, surprised and even shocked. S/He does not understand as to why this pattern did not work this time? The pattern might look exactly identical but its unique its never happened before.

What you see is an an identical patterns yet unique at the same time. Its not the same patterns they are are similar but at the same time unique. You might think you woke this morning with the same person that you went to bed with last night but not only did the person next to you change over night you have changed as well.

Objective 1


What is Elliott Wave? 

We believe the market has a structure. That structure is Elliott Wave. We also believe that the structure also has a structure and that structure is shown to us on our charts by using our indicator AIMS Levels. EW consists of impulse waves and corrective waves. We are interested in trading the impulse waves and avoid the corrective waves.


Which wave is most profitable and easy to trade?   


Wave 3 is where we make money. Our strategy puts us right into the impulse waves, where the money is made.


Hypothetically, this is how Elliott Wave looks like.



Within each Impulse wave there are 5 waves.  of which wave 1,3,5,  are again impulse waves whereas wave 2 and 4 are corrective waves.

An impulse wave consists of sequence of 5 waves starting from 1 up 2 down 3 up and 4 down an…

How to Trade Wave 3 Make HUGE PROFITS

The most important thing I learned few years ago was that the market was a wave. Well not the market, but the charts that we look at. It always moves in waves. Someone actually named them after themselves but we don't really need that lovely name (Elliott Wave). Because we don't need to complicate things.

When I talk about waves, I don't mean the popular Elliott Wave. I mean the WAVE we have on the most beautiful indicator called, ahem it has many names, AO, The Awesome Oscillator, The eWave, AIMS Wave etc.  It helps us see the market in a smooth wave going above and below a certain Zero Line. .. It helps you ignore the going up and going down of the price concept. For us technical traders, we don't have an up and down as such specially in forex. All we see is eWave turning Red or Green.

Assuming you already know a bit about the wave. I know most of you will want to know the answer this fantastic question. How to trade the third wave?

They all ask that question, and s…
