How Good Traders Make Big Money in Stock Trading and Have a Great Time Doing It

Mar 17, 2008
The "good old days" in the stock market are NOW. Does that make any sense?

Forget about the wonderful stock trading price movement behavior in 1999. Forget about 2007. Yes those were good years mostly attributed to the euphoria created in large rapid uptrends. The key to successful stock trading is to just focus on the "bread and butter" next high probability 10 to 20 point move and go forward.

Good stock traders look forward to the next "bread and butter" opportunity and do not get caught up in euphoric price movements.

Good stock traders are good in stock trading because they keep their focus plain and simple on the doable, high probability trading opportunities.

How to make $100,000 in stock trading:

Let"s say you"re trading a stock that can easily make a 100-point move any by 1000 shares of that stock. Over a hundred point gain you"d make $100,000 profit. The question is how many stocks make 100-point moves frequently?

Did you know that you could make the same amount of money from a 10-point move versus a 100-point move in a stock? You don"t need those huge point moves of the old days like you may be thinking. Why?

You could also make $100,000 by buying 10,000 shares in a stock that moves 10 points. How many stocks can move 10 points on a regular basis? A lot! And the issue comes down to your Stock trading system for showing you when to get in and out at the right time. Your Stock trading system has to allow you to enter with pinpoint accuracy so you can define a tiny stop loss when you purchase this many shares.

When trading a lot of shares you need to be extremely careful to acknowledge your risk. Lack of understanding of the potential for loss due to indecision, lack of a plan, your error, random market surprises will cost you money. So learn as much as you can and as fast as possible. You can accelerate your learning pace this by purchasing home study courses of successful traders, reading books, attending seminars and subscribing to trading newsletters. Doing so can save and make you potential millions of dollars over time" just ask any other successful trader and it will tell you the same. You need to keep learning until it all "clicks" for you.

Now what if you used options instead of stock? 10,000 shares of stock on a $50 stock costs $500,000 or $250,000 on margin. You could buy 100 contracts of options for $450 contract for $45,000 instead. Of course, if you're just getting started you could reduce the number of options contracts or shares of stock down to whatever amount you want, so don't be intimidated, but be excited for the day you can swing around 100 options contracts or 10,000 shares of stock.

Traders who make a lot of money in the stock market have an aggressive mindset. Their main concern usually is not worry about whether or not the next particular trade will put or take away food from their family"s table. They are beyond that and have taken care of that.

The ones who actually make money and keep it tend to be 100% aggressive with zero doubt or worry, focused on their desired outcome. The mindset of what we call "complete aggressiveness" (towards the desired outcome) actually takes care of risk management because losing is not in the desired outcome. Any bad behavior in stock price movement is immediately eliminated even at the expense of missing the opportunity.

Please reread the previous paragraph. That paragraph can be a life altering mentality for your stock trading.

In the study of success and failure the successful and wealthy tend to focus intensely on what they want. While the unsuccessful and not so wealthy tend to focus on problems, on worries or if they can't find any problems or worries they tend to make new ones up. It's quite amazing how people cling to and find comfort in being worried. Sometimes people are much more afraid of success than failure and that sad. So why not make up your mind today, right now, that you are going to claim what you and focus on it with 100% concentration. And guess what? You may find out that problems and worries will tend to take care of themselves by focusing on what you want. Now apply this to your stock trading.

But the question is: "How do I take care of risk in trading stocks and options so I can be as aggressive as I want?"
