This site is currently inactive as I have decided to move away from exclusively trading Forex in 2010 and as such will not be taking on new coaching clients in this area.

 



I have resumed my focus on coaching as a stock market mentor where I run a success guaranteed stock trading mentorship program

 



Additionally, you can now get access to what I consider to be the best stock options daily trade alert service.

 



Of course, I am biased and with a success rate fluctuating between 68.2% and 72.4% it is hard not to be biased.

 



If you do want to follow along with what I am doing every day you can get access to my daily stock market report 

 

 

You can read the step-by-step Bollinger Band Trading Strategy Guide - this is my main active trading strategy



Until next time


happy trading

Fear of missing “the big one”

Joe_Ross's picture
This question was sent to me from one of our students: Hey Joe! My greatest fear in the market is that of missing a move. I just can’t stand the thought of missing “the big one.” The best way to handle that kind of fear is walk away from the situation. Get up, and walk away from the computer and any news you may be watching. Remove yourself from whatever it is that triggered the fear. Do anything that will take you out of the fear/panic mode. Don’t sit down to trade again, and don’t return to the markets until you have managed to achieve some emotional control over your fear/panic reaction. If you can’t get a grip on your fear, then stay away until you are back in control. Most likely you will find that even if you keep thinking about the move you may be missing, simply getting away from the keyboard and monitor is enough to make a difference. It removes the demand to take action and gives you the mental space to gain perspective and let go of your knee-jerk reaction.
