Part of what we do at Landshark is to educate on how to address the markets at as a whole, not just a trading strategy. Misinformation can create bad trading habits, strategies and lead to large losses. Typically, this is followed by the investor looking at another strategy, another indicator or some piece of new software to use in hopes of remedying the situation. As retail investors we want to level the playing field and get the edge that Wall Street Institutions have. To do that we have to understand how they perceive the markets, not how you or I think we should perceive it.
There is absolutely no trading book in the world that will teach you to trade the markets, I firmly believe that. There are trading books that will give you insight on how a trader manages risk, looks for stocks to trade etc. but learning to really trade the markets comes from A) Doing it and B) Knowing how to determine where the banks are trading. That's it! I have been trying to express this message since we've started Landshark years ago and this remains true even today. This basic concept of determining when to buy or sell a stock will never change because we are simply looking at supply (sellers) and demand (buyers) but we are looking at them on the charts in front of us. This tells you the full story if you understand how to read it.
This is the same concept that allowed us to determine in August where we wanted to be buyers of shares of Apple, Chipotle and Tesla Motors. Not an indicator, not a piece of software but looking at the price chart and understanding where there is demand for a stock then understanding that the large institutions will provide the heavy lifting for us. Below is a video discussing the trades from this month. You can attend a free class near you to learn more about this concept as well.
Let's see what the month of August brings us in the way of volatility now that earnings are winding down.
Hope this helped.
