Habits of Success Webinar 2010

The Foundation for Profitability

North America : Oct 22, 23, 29 and 30, 8:00 pm to 12:00 am
(Singapore/HK : Oct 23, 24, 30 and 31, 8:00 am to 12:00 noon

I have designed a 3-level learning model which helps you to achieve successful trading. This webinar is the Level II of the model.

Trading success is a function of:

Winning Psychology (60%) x Effective Money Management (30%)
x Written Plan with An Edge (10%)

With this module, the newbie lays the foundation for his success. He learns:

  • The greatest danger to his success is his own nature.
  • He learns how to trace the causes of his failures; and
  • He learns how to maintain consistency of execution that is the hallmark of every successful trader.
The importance of this learning cannot be overemphasized. Your success is assured if you have a viable risk management plan, and if you have discipline to consistently execute it and your trading strategy.

Imagine the confidence you possess because you know you have all the discipline you need, and because you know how to call upon it.

But, the benefits of the module do not stop there! The module has a unique money management approach that incorporates both sides of the brain: the logical and emotional.

Famed neurologist, Antonio D'Amasio, has shown that our best decisions come from an integration of our logic and emotions. But, if you look at most money management ideas you will see that they accentuate the left-brain but ignore the right brain. Yet such an approach leaves out one of the most important aspects of money management: the ebb and flow of our emotions as they relate to market decisions.

The 'Ebb & Flow' theory in this module shows you how to maximize your profits and minimize your losses by using your trading results AND your emotional cycles. No longer will you continue to increase your position sizes at a time when you should be decreasing them. Your profit margin will increase exponentially by applying the ideas in the module.

Finally, the module has a simple trading plan that has been proven to make money both in back-testing as well as real-time trading.

So, who should attend this webinar?

  1. Beginners (i.e. those with zero knowledge of trading). You will need to do some preliminary reading that we will provide you. You are the easiest to teach because you have no bad habits to overcome.
  2. Novices. You will learn how to overcome the barriers that have been holding you back.
  3. Competent. You will learn the tools and techniques to execute consistently your risk management and trading rules.

What you will learn from the 4~day webinar?

The Habits of Success webinar to be held on October 22~23 & 29~30 provides you with the tools to succeed :

  • It has a unique journal-keeping method that will provide laser focuses on the areas that need improvement and those areas that you repeat for maximum profitability.
  • It provides an effective equity journal and position sizing method.
  • It provides a unique trading plan based on the methods Ray uses in his own trading. Ray has finally found a way to make available his foundational trading tools without having to purchase specialized software. For the first time, the Habits of Success will present a plan based on the Ray’s ‘Barros Swing’ methodology – this is a major breakthrough in trader education.
Register for this webinar and you will to learn Ray’s own method based on the works of the Masters of Old, Frank Tubbs and Richard D Wyckoff, as well as a method based on the Market Profile. Most trading plans rely on moving averages, oscillators (Stochastics, MACD etc) and most traders using these tools, lose money. Pete Steidlmayer, the originator of the Market Profile, once said of them:

“Traders make money not because of their tools, but in spite of them”

The reason why this is true? Because few newbie traders are taught to understand the principles of market action. In this course, Ray corrects this oversight and you benefit from the correction.

You will learn principles and rules that will lead an in depth understanding of price action. But that is not all: Ray has taken these principles and coded them into a cohesive trading rules that is easy to apply.

This means you have a simple trading plan that you can apply to make consistent profits.
The webinar gives the newbie a holistic approach that builds the foundation to success. Based on this foundation, the newbie goes on to even greater success. This webinar gives you the opportunity to achieve your dreams.
