Trusting Your System and Objectivity

It is very important to trust and continue to take objective actions as you process
the trading signals generated by your system. 

We have to learn to accept and take action based on the information given to us by the market
through the medium of our trading system. We have to accept and understand what the chart tells us
 rather than focus more on our  "feeling" about it.

Don't trade with your feelings or what you think about the markets. Our thoughts often take us
into the future trying to predict or they take us to the left of the chart pondering over the past.
Our thoughts make us look into the history tab of our platform or the running profit and loss for the day.

On average we experience and process 60,000 thoughts a day. And these thoughts make themselves
 known to us and get manifested inside our body as emotions and feelings. Yes, thoughts manifested
 are emotions, we feel emotions, we feel the manifestations of our thoughts. When you feel anxiety,
 stress or boredom it is because of the thoughts you have processed earlier.
The thought process happens ahead of those emotions.

So when you become aware of your emotions that you don't want or like you know that you have been thinking the wrong things. If you remain conscious at all or most of the time you will be in control of how you feel.

So our feelings are our feelings. They are inside of us. But the information that we see on the chart
are coming from outside, from the external environment. They become part of our inner self, the
internal environment but don't come from within.

What we need to is to respond in the manner that is the most objective and accurate. In order to
achieve that we have to find out and decide and document our course of action well in advance. The
actions that we take must have been already planned ahead of time.

Stop judging your template, your trading system or signals. Simply accept the information and take actions accordingly. If you're not sure then say no thank you with gratitude. But keep an eye open.

When the game is over you'll have the chance to go over the days performance and find out how well you did. IF you have passed valid set-ups you can then compare and analyse why did you perceive what you did and why did you take the course of action that you took. Was your perception correct or was it not.

If it was not, was it due the cloud of fear and greed or other emotions or was it based on market generated information?

If it was based on "objective" mental and technical analysis then you have done well but if it was a result of any of the negative emotions then you've made mistakes. It is time to enforce your disciplinary procedures which should have been laid out in your written trading plan.

May the Pips be with you!

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…
