The Mindset of a Professional Trader

There are two types of mindsets. One that is the opposite of the mindset required for consistently successful trading while the other the mindset of professional consistently successful traders.

The Non Professional Trading Mindset:

When a novice, non professional trader sees a setup, (A Trading Signal)  many doubts hits the trader. Instead of looking objectively at the rules of their trading plan (assuming they have one since most don't even bother with this fundamentally important aspect of trading) they look for all the things that have nothing to do with their plan.

As a novice struggling trader you start looking for reasons that has nothing to do with your trade plan. In other words the trader loses objectivity. Though confusingly though, for most people, when its a wrong setup, or no setup, trader somehow, finds it very easy to take those trades. There is no hesitation and they jump in without thinking. That is one type of mindset.

This mindset is a disaster. The trader may have in their hands, a very good trading methodology but they don't yet possess the mindset that is essential for peak performance. They have not trained for it because they don't yet know it is a "thing".

The Correct Trading Mindset:


Professional traders know exactly when to enter the market, where to set theri stop loss and take profit levels. They understand risk management but more importantly they are disciplined. Highly disciplined. And the reason they are highly disciplined is because they have acquired the mindset called "Probabilistic Mindset". They know  that a single trade can become a winner or loser at any time. They know they cannot dictate the outcome of this one trade. But they also know that their method gives them an edge. So they keep taking signals objectively.

You have to do everything in your power to switch to that mindset.

There will be a day when you experience the switch.  You'll move from  finding it easy to take just any trade to finding it hard to take any trades that don't fit your rules, you find it hard unless its your setup, following the rules of your trading plan.  that day you will have become a trader with a professional mindset. A trader who's path of least energy has shifted.

AIMS Stress Free Trading - The T20 Principle is a training methodology. The FUTURE YOU that you want to be can be achieved at the end of the T20 training course. It is the mindset that you want to switch to. You don't need to change strategy, you need to switch mindset.

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.
