This is a video to do well in life but especially also to do well in trading

By Online Guru Trader | Blog , Trading , Trading Article

Many traders don’t understand that how and why their psychology affects their trading. Trading involves stress because trading can results in financial gain and loss sometimes in a matter of seconds.

When there is too much stress, it affects a person’s ability to make better decisions. And when a person can’t make better decisions in their trading, naturally they make losses in their trading.

And because of that, a good way to deal with the stress is gratitude. With gratitude, stress can be overcome and decision making in trading will be better. And because your decision making is better, you tend to make better trades and eventually results in overall profitability.

In short, when you are in a state of gratitude, your psychology is better, your trading is better.

If your gratitude is real and not faking it, naturally you start to win more in your winning trades, lose less when you are wrong and in a losing trades.

Overall, over time, you’ll start to see your capital grow bigger and your wealth grow consistently.

There’s a reason why I always preach about gratitude. It’s the key to success in almost all areas of life that I know of regardless whether it is for trading or not.

Gratitude is the key to having good psychology for trading and also for trading success. Watch the video to truly understand this.

And I quote William Arthur Ward words, “feeling gratitude and not expressing it, is like wrapping a present and and not giving it” and John F. Kennedy words, “As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest level of appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them”.

And I try to live by them. I feel stronger sense of gratitude when I show my gratitude in actions than in words. And its more real to me too. Don’t take my word for what I said. Try it and you can see your trading improve.

Stocks to monitor for trade 27/07/2016

By Online Guru Trader | Blog , Newsletter , Trading Article

After my previous post on 27/06/2016, trade on Kroger Company (KR) has reached 200% based on risk to reward while Phillips 66 (PSX) has went against my trade and hit stop loss. Markets have proved to be more bullish than I expected and has hit all-time high in the US. But even as the markets are more bullish overall, shorting on ConocoPhillips (COP) and Baker Hughes Inc (BHI) posted on 13/06/2016 continued to move lower. Going forward, here are the counters I am looking at to trade.

For long trades,
Southwest Airlines Co. (LUV)
Cvs Caremark Corp (CVS)

For short trades,
American Express Co (AXP)
Boeing Co (BA)
Citigroup (C)
Discover Financial Services (DFS)
Energy Transfer Partners LP (ETP)
EOG Resources (EOG)
Halliburton Co (HAL)
JPMorgan Chase and Co (JPM)
Monsanto Co (MON)
Noble Energy Inc (NBL)

US stocks to monitor for trade 27/06/2016

By Online Guru Trader | Blog , Newsletter , Trading Article

Since my previous post on stocks to monitor on 13/06/2016, most of the stocks have went down and went into profit. I hope those who followed my previous post have benefited. I did not post any long trades on 13/06/2016 because the way I look at the charts, it shows much bearishness in the markets. For me, Brexit was much expected by analysing the technicals. That’s why I posted on 23/06/2016 (almost 20 hours before news of results of referendum was out that started to moved markets down) that I was still bearish with the markets. Going forward, here are the stocks I am looking to trade and hope you will benefit from it.

For long trades, here are the stocks I am looking at.
Kroger Company (KR)
Phillips 66 (PSX)

For short trades, please follow my post on 13/06/2016 as there isn’t any new ones to add to that list.

Seems like it’s not only me who have bearish sentiment with the markets 23/06/2016

By Online Guru Trader | Blog , News , Newsletter , Trading Article

Since the second half of last year, I have been turned overall long term bearish on the markets. Those who followed me and been to my market outlook talks would think I am a naturally bearish guy on the markets but it is not true. Since 2010, I have been have been trading the markets with an overall long term bullish view on the markets.

As a trader who use technicals to trade, I analyse the markets based on the charts. So my bearish sentiment comes from analysing the markets through the charts. By using the charts, I am able forecasted the small market crash in July 2015 during the greece crisis and a crash in a bigger extent in August 2015 during the china crisis which caused the dow jones to drop over 2000 points in just 4 trading days. As a technical analyst, I cannot tell you what events or news will move the markets. But using the charts, I can see when a shift is likely to happen.

And right now I am even more bearish than ever, because the chart shows a shift is even more imminent. It also seems like more and more technical traders and analyst are sharing my view and sentiment as well. One of them is this technical analyst who according to the article I just read, forecasted 4 market crashes in the past. I like to share this article with all of you and I hope you enjoy it. Please click the link to read it at

Big crisis lies great opportunities and I believe great opportunity are in stored for the future and I hope all of you out there are equiped with the tools, skillsets and knowledge to take full advantage of it. Even if you are not equip, at least protect yourself thereby protecting your wealth from depreciating. Like I said (which some of you may have heard me say before), one of the greatest wealth transfer in history is starting (the brewing part is almost over, and so it’s starting)
