“What advice would you give to a novice trader?” by Jack D Schwager

Jack D SchwagerThis was taken from the book “The New Market Wizards”, it’s one of the questions posted by Jack D Schwager to Gil Blake. And this was his answer:

“There are five basic steps to becoming a successful trader.

  • First, focus on trading vehicles, strategies, and time horizons that suit your personality.
  • Second, identify non-random price behaviour, while recognizing that markets are random most of the time.
  • Third, absolutely convince yourself that what you have found is statistically valid.
  • Fourth, set up trading rules.
  • Fifth, follow the rules. In a nutshell, it all comes down to: Do your own thing (independence); and do the right thing (discipline).”

Awesome advise.
