Hello, finding accurate ways to predict the trend is my biggest challenge.

That’s impossible. I don’t know anyone who does that. How can you?

“Just listened to the Mark Rzepczynski episode…”

Feedback in:

Hello Michael, Love the podcast. Just listened to the Mark Rzepczynski conversation. Could you please share your materials? Very interested in trend following. Much appreciated.

Michael B.

Was Mark your first episode? Why do you like the podcast?

Definitely not the first. I listen sporadically but had a long flight to France and binged in both directions. I am not good with names early in the AM, but my favorite was the guy from Dunkin’ Donuts. He is a humble pragmatic business leader. Of course all of the guests with an investment slant particularly the Turtles. Also liked the psychologist/author that you had some disagreement with. Oh, and your rants/monologues are also great.

Thanks for the feedback!

“My biggest challenge is getting over the fear of trading…”

Feedback in:

My biggest challenge is getting over the fear of trading. Sounds stupid but I’ve been “educating myself” for 11 years and I still haven’t really taken the plunge!

Best wishes,
John S.

Your strategy and time frame now is?

I’m going to start trading options and CFS’s. ASAP. Thank you.

You told me what you will trade. But what is the system? Time frame?

Not sure what you mean by system and time frame is short to medium. Thank you.

You need:

• Exact rules for selecting your tracking portfolio.
• Exact rules for entering your trades at the right time.
• Exact rules for exiting your trades with a loss.
• Exact rules for exiting your trades with a profit.
• Exact rules for how much money to bet on each trade.

See my FAQS below.

“But this system is worse. It makes me look like day trader…”

All traders need:

• Exact rules for selecting your tracking portfolio.
• Exact rules for entering your trades at the right time.
• Exact rules for exiting your trades with a loss.
• Exact rules for exiting your trades with a profit.
• Exact rules for how much money to bet on each trade.

Do you have that? One reader responded:

I guess the answer is no. If we mean my own behaviours, I can explain my system: Find the trend, get a position. (About 10 stocks which are different industries) Put a loos-stop on lowest price of last 5 days. When loss-stop works, I wait trend or look other stocks. When stocks give profit I move loss-stops to on lowest price of new last 5 days. I don’t change loss-stops of loos-making stops. It is working in short terms. I haven’t start futures, I don’t open short positions. That’s why I miss downtrends. But this system is worse. It makes me look like day trader. Worse one.

Your system is a dead end. It’s not trend following.

“I would appreciate your views on the main mistakes I made in the trading…”

Feedback in:

My approach to trading in the recent past has been to follow fundamental analysis. I traded the euro us dollar in a long view and entered the market every beginning of only a week when the previous week or weeks there had been a retracement of at least 200 pips since for the theory of parity of the purchasing power of currencies the price of the euro to that relative to the dollar was undervalued. According to Columbia University’s purchasing power currency pricing theory, the equilibrium was around 1.2500 / 1.2700 eur / usd. I was profitable until May 2021 when there was a revaluation of the euro against the dollar up to the price of around 1.2300 and then the price plummeting to parity of (1/1) these days. From May 2021 until October 2021 I continued to trade in the buy euro dollar direction, also averaging downwards and, unfortunately, I suffered heavy losses that canceled out my previous profits. This is the experience I have had on trading trading only one currency pair. doing operations by diversifying between several currency pairs I was able to mitigate the time wasters I was able to obtain some increasing gains or over time. This I cannot say. This is the most important experience I have had in trading. I would appreciate your views on the main mistakes I made in the trading I have carried out. Thanks for the answer that I want to give me.

Best regards,
Stefano D.
