133 Trading Tips

1. Nobody is bigger than the market.

2. The challenge is not to be the market, but to read the market. Riding the wave is much more rewarding than being hit by it.

3. Trade with the trends, rather than trying to pick tops and bottoms.

4.. Trying to pick tops and bottoms is another common fx trading mistake. If you're going to trade tops and bottoms, at least wait until the price action actually confirms that a top or a bottom has been formed before you take a position in the market. Trying to pin-point tops and bottoms in the foreign exchange market is very risky, but exercising a little patience and waiting for a proven top or bottom to form can increase your odds of profiting and somewhat reduce your risk.

5. There are at least three types of markets: up trending, range bound, and down. Have different trading strategies for each.

6. Standing aside is a position.

7. In uptrends, buy the dips ;in downtrends, sell bounces.

8. In a Bull market, never sell a dull market, in Bear mar…

By Mike Singh

What is day trading?
Day trading is an extremely risky way of investing in the stock market. Day trading is carried out by day traders who rapidly purchase and sell stocks over a single day period in the hope that for the very short period over which they hold the stocks (ranging from just a few seconds to a couple of hours) the value will continue to climb or fall thus allowing day traders to secure quick profits.

Too many beginning traders move into options thinking of them as cheap surrogates for their underlying stock. That's not entirely unwarranted: given the right conditions, many trading strategies translate nicely from stock trading to options.

But how is a trader to know when those conditions are right? There is only one way - you need to understand options. You need to know the function they fill in the financial markets; you need to have an idea of 'true' pricing, you need to have a handle on how fundamental data impacts options pricing differently than it affects the stock or ETF on which the option is based. In short, if you want to trade options the way you trade stocks, you need to know how differnet the two are. And the best way to do that is to educate yourself by reading the best options trading books available.

Options Trading - Calls and Puts
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Mike_Doering]Mike Doering

Like most disciplines, options trading has some lingo peculiar to the world of the options market. Most stock traders have heard of 'calls' and 'puts', but explaining how they work is another matter. Calls and puts are two types of options; there are call options and there are put options.

All options are defined by the following characteristics:

they pertain to a specific underlying stock
they have an expiration date
they have an exercise price (a.k.a. a strike price)

To help grasp these concepts of calls and puts, it's important to understand that owning calls or puts gives the owner certain rights. Now, if rights are one side of a coin, then obligations are the other side.
When a trader buys an option they are buying a right to either buy a particular stock or sell a particular stock. If one trader holds a certain right, then some other trader must have the complementary obli…
