Unholy Grails - A New Road to Wealth

Unholy Grails by Nick Radge 500 Nick Radge stopped following The Herd many years ago. As a futures trader, stock trader, futures broker, stock broker and fund manager, Nick learnt to recognise what The Herd were doing and how they react to financial information. He also realised that it made no sense.

Are you one of The Herd? Here’s a test:
Question: If a stock’s price is falling do you think it represents good value, i.e. it’s cheap?
Answer: OneTel and HIH were not cheap when they eventually delisted in 2001. ABC Learning was not cheap when it delisted in 2008. Billabong does not look cheap to me!

A stock price in motion tends to stay in motion; Unholy Grails will show you how to be on the positive side of this statement.

It's all in the book...

I'm often asked to list my favourite, most influential trading books. Over the last 26 years I've read a LOT of trading books, good and bad. So before we go any further let's think...what's in a trading book? Probably nothing unless you make it your own. For example, I have known Peter for 15 years. He's a doctor - a specialist actually, so he must be damn smart. He loves reading trading books. He has hundreds of them. Whenever a new trading book is released, wham!, he's ordered it and read it. He then stows it on a huge bookshelf bulging with trading books. Like little trophies.

50 Bite Size Trading Tips and Tricks by Nick Radge

50 Bite Size Trading Tips and Tricks by Nick Radge

  1. Don't try to read into other people's trading decisions.
  2. By all means like a stock, but don't try to be best friends with it forever. Instead, spend time nurturing positions that are being kind to you.
  3. Beware the Beginners Cycle. The want to be right will cause you to collect courses and books and will only be a costly and frustrating exercise. The secret is elsewhere.
  4. Actually, there is no secret. It's all in the maths.
  5. Losses when trading are inevitable, but losses should always be limited.
  6. Have a prepared trading plan so you don't rush into bad decisions. Time spent planning will help you avoid catastrophic losses, riding the emotional roller coaster, and other unnecessary headaches.
  7. Get off your high horse. Your ego will eventually cost you dearly.

Soul Trader - Trading the Stock Market whilst In the Zone

Many analogies are made between different sports and trading the stock market. Usually such analogies refer to mindset required for elite performance or the technical processes involved. One analogy that particularly resonates with me comes from the sport of surfing.

Of all the sports I have tried and participated in, surfing has provided me with by far the most amount of pleasure over the years.

Technical Analysis – Indicators

stock chart manOne of the early decisions a new trader needs to make is what sort of trading they wish to undertake. Usually following on from that answer, the question as to whether some type of stock market analysis tool (i.e. trading software) is required, then presents itself.

As the budding trader embarks on the due diligence of purchasing a trading software package they can be subjected to the amount of indicators the package has or can be created, as a selling point. Once the decision is made and software downloaded, a potential problem begins to manifest itself, unbeknown at this point to the trader. Within the indicator section of the software is a plethora of indicators, each with adjustable parameters, styles and colours.

How to Buy Stocks

best advice for tradersSo, you want to know how to buy stocks. The most important thing to remember when starting your investment career (think of trading and investing as a business, after all, you are in it to make money) is to be realistic. Learning how to buy stocks takes time, study and practice. Remember: it’s your hard earned money you are going to be trading stocks with so be careful and be responsible.

Start with a trading plan. This will outline your goals, trading routine, money management and continued learning. Trading without a plan is more like gambling and will see you stuck in the Beginner’s Cycle for a very long time. The more detailed your plan the better.
