trading webinars


     OR            OR      

To provide world-class educational content and resources to active traders from both our companies, to build leads and exposure for each other.

Eligibility: only well-known MoneyShow expo speakers, book/article authors and top trading industry experts are being invited to participate. This is not for internet-marketer-type trading outfits, lesser known people or non-experts. Definitely not for that cross-email launch pitchfest crowd of trader-marketeers that endlessly affiliate promote overpriced launch stuff to everyone with hypey emails.

This is a strategic countermeasure; to provide genuinely useful training to active traders from us experts. I'm extending an open hand to all the credible educators, like myself, that want to work together sensibly to build our businesses. We want to bring the best to our traders. So people like my colleagues Steve Nison, Peter Bain, Toni Turner, Dr. Van Tharp, Kathy Lien and others of that level are who I have in mind for this, only. Others, stay tuned for our new affiliate program launching later.
Reach more traders by partnering with us for trading webinars to present both of our companies' training and offers to each others' lists. The main goal of TradeWebinars is to build leads for each other while delivering top-quality content (and offers) to the trading community.
I developed three different choices, to be flexible and figure out the best-performing approaches we can use. I'm open to alternative approaches as well, just contact me with any ideas/suggestions.

This is the easiest way to agree to cross-promote for each other; you'll send an email to your lists to promote one of our events, and we'll do the same for you. These should be scheduled to go out during the same week for each other. We do not present in each other's webinar nor together in this; it's a simple "you promote for me and I'll promote for you" way to promote for each other.

This is a typical approach used by many, and usually produces the fewest leads, since a "go see this other person's webinar" email blast gets modest response. It's best to do events where we both present, since it gets the loyalty and interest of both our lists together. But if your time is very limited, this is a good way to start.

This is where we host a trading webinar featuring you, that we both promote to both our lists. I will introduce you, and if you want we can do some brief Q&A together on the topic during this event. I do recommend that I be involved somehow, either just to introduce you and/or to do some interactive Q&A like a tv talk-show interview approach at the start of your presentation, for audience involvement.

We both send out a promotional email to both our lists to our traders; the webinar is held on our gotowebinar platform. By having your event on our platform, you get exposure of both your list and ours in a single event. We may offer a replay/download link as well, depending on the event and presenter.

You can make an offer at the end of the presentation; we request that you deliver high content quality (at least 90% of the webinar should be practical how-to tips; not promotional messages; you can make a brief promotional offer at the end).

I built out an entire site dedicated to this approach, please see for complete details, video explanation of how it works, and more. While a bit more complex to set up, I believe it's the best way to work together, since we are both presenting during a 2-part series to both of our lists, on our separate platforms. If time is short, however, than one of the first two choices may be best.
In this innovative approach, we schedule a 2-webinar series (webinar #1 on my Gotowebinar platform, webinar #2 on your platform (Gotowebinar/AdobeConnect/Omnovia recommended). We each present for 30 minutes during these two webinars, and therefore double our exposure to our leads, along with brief offers at the end of each presentation.

You speak for 30 minutes, brief offer, then I do the same; and we repeat this on two separate webinars (scheduled a week or two apart). This is designed to build better interest level and involvement from traders, which can generate stronger sales and give a better presentation.

Got another idea? Let me know
The above 3 choices are the best I can develop, if you have an alternative idea or approach to suggest, feel free to run it by me, I'm open to new ideas. The main thing is that it needs to be fair and equitable for both of us, and that we both do send out emails to both our lists as agreed upon, for it to be mutually beneficial. Contact me with the support form below to talk.

Our Professional Expectations In Working Together: We realize that many credible industry speakers and other educators may not have huge six-figure lists, so we have modest expectations. If we can produce just 50-100 leads or more for each other, that's a good start. With "webinar burnout" from traders, we realize that some events may not generate hundreds of leads instantly like they used to back in the 2005-2010 era... and that's ok with us.

The main expectation is that you're honest, and that you do send out the email you agree to, to at least 90% of your leads (as we will). We recommend that you optin to our main newsletter (as we will do, or already have done so) via anonymous email address, to 'seed', or check that in fact emails are sent as agreed to.

This is something we recommend for all trading educators (optin w/anonymous email to verify emails are sent as agreed upon) as we've found some dishonest educators out there that agree to send emails, but fail to do so (this is especially true with the 'new' internet marketing outfits that pose as traders; they don't email their entire list, just a fraction at most). Of course if you work with us and do not email as agreed to, I won't work with you again... I expect honesty and integrity from our partners.

There's no cost to participate, we just ask that you also send an email to your lists to co-promote this, as we will for ours. This offer is open to selected industry partners only.

: for webinars that we participate in, we're always booked at least a few months out, so plan on us scheduling webinar(s) at least 3-4 months from the time you contact us.
In accordance with our privacy policy (and FTC regs), we never directly share our traders' emails with others, however for our "Be Our Guest" and "JV Trading Webinars" options we will send a followup email to all registered webinar attendees on your behalf to send them to your site, where you can ask them to optin for your offers. Do not ask us to provide emails or contact information of anyone who registers for a webinar on our platform; we do not share our leads data, per our site privacy policy.

You can also present a brief promotional opportunity at the end of your webinar to everyone, so that you can sell your educational/other products to them. We will never send out direct leads information via xls/csv to partners, nor will we ever ask that from you -- all leads data is kept confidential. That's one resaon we like the approach, since we're alternating platforms, so that traders optin to both our webinar lists, so we both get "clean" leads, while maintaining privacy.

Frequently-Asked Questions (FAQ):

Q: Why work together? What's in it for me?

A: As a top-respected industry figure with a solid list of traders that trust me, working together can give you exposure to a new audience you never had before. And by working together, we can generate leads for each other and visibility to more traders, which can help increase sales for each of us.

Q: Is there any revenue-sharing required?
A: No, this is separate from any affiliate or revenue-share effort. All your leads and sales that you capture are yours, as is the case for me. This is all about pr/visibility and lead generation for each other, so no revenue/affiliate commissions are required, by either of us.

Q: What webinar platform do you use?
A: I personally use Gotowebinar, and recommend it.

Q: How do I get leads from doing this?
A: While we don't share leads data directly, in accordance with our privacy policy, all 3 options are designed to help produce new leads for you. Either with a webinar swap, or one in which you're our guest, or we co-present, you'll get exposure to our list as we promote the event(s) together.

Q: How long does it take to schedule these?
A: For simple cross-promotion 'Webinar Swaps' we can schedule that within a few weeks, to add to both of our email schedules. For events requiring me to be there, we are usually booked for the next 2-3 months out as a minimum, so plan on scheduling for a few months out, for joint webinars we do together.


By working together, we can potentially deliver many new leads to each others' businesses and reach more traders.

We like to use a fresh, innovative approach to delivering world-class trading webinars. We've done trading webinars since 2000, to thousands of traders worldwide. They should be fast-paced, informative, useful and helpful to traders, with a brief promo offer at the end. Slow-moving or self-promotional webinars have become commonplace and tiresome; we like to give traders better content.

Contact us via support ticket or with the form below. Allow 48 hours for a reply. Thanks for your interest! I look forward to the possibility of working together to build leads and business together, while helping traders with new strategies.
If you're an Expo speaker or well-known author or industry expert, just let me know of your interest and/or questions. If you're one of the people that I feel would be a good fit for this, I'll follow up and we may schedule a phone call or follow up via email.

Who Is This Well-Respected Trader (& Expo Speaker), Anyways?

Ken Calhoun is President of Daytrading, and (with Steve Nison). Having provided online training to thousands of active traders from over 32 countries since 1999, he is an internationally published trader who's earned industry awards and critical acclaim from traders around the world for his professional trading systems.

Featured in leading trade publications and events including Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities magazine, Active Trader Magazine, Moneyshow's Traders Expos,, and CBS, Ken has been a popular figure in the active trading scene for over a decade, and has co-produced two bestselling stock trading DVD systems with Steve Nison.


Although He's a UCLA Grad and Former Corporate Quality Engineer, Discovering How To Trade Still Took Him YEARS to "Get It Right" — Work Together With Ken

Ken will tell you he made every mistake in the book (and then some) on the path to learning how to trade correctly. Now he's able to make thoughtful trade entries, thanks to meticulous testing and experimenting to find out what works best, updated for each week's markets. As a former corporate quality engineer and statistician, dozens of Fortune 500 companies (including Ford, McDonnell Douglas, Sheraton, Chevron and Rockwell International) relied on him to help them improve operations and "the numbers"... he took this experience to help him learn how to trade, and he's thrilled with what he's learned.

Ken reveals new trading tips in this new webinar for active traders, so you can learn everything he's tested out with hundreds of actual trades he's done.

As an internationally published business management consultant, Ken previously trained over 31,000 people in over 147 companies worldwide. He took his profits from his successful consulting career and discovered the world of active stock trading, where he's been working to help other traders use precision, advanced trading strategies in their trades.

Ken's Daytrading University site has been trusted by over 8,100 traders worldwide to learn how to swing and day trade stocks, and is considered a premiere resource for active traders. He has interviewed Brian Tracy, Toni Turner, Dr. Van K. Tharp, Larry Levin, Steve Nison, Kathy Lien, Boris Schlossberg, Dr. Doug Hirschhorn and others and is a popular, sought-after seminar speaker and industry figure with credibility.

Unlike the majority of people in the trading industry, Ken is a genuine trader and has helped thousands of traders since 1999, when he first founded the Daytrading University.

"80% of the profit is made in about 10% of the trades. So, how can we reduce the number of less effective trades?" - Madura P.
Reply from Ken: Hi Madura, good question. I've found that while part of it is learning better scanning and trade entry/exit signals to follow, the fact is it's very hard to get over 40-50% right in the percentage of actual trade wins over time. The way to win is to scale up into winning trades, so that you position-size and make more from the winners than the total cost of stops from the losing entries. It's not about the percent of winning trades that counts, its the percent of P&L capital you make over time, the dollars, that add up to more than losses, as the primary trading goal. It's all about the money, the P&Ls, not win percentages.

Reply from Ken: Hi Jen, thanks. Many of my trading materials nowadays are in fact geared specifically for swingtrading (which can then be used as well for day trading for those who wish to do that as well). For example in and over half the examples and content are specifically for swing trading. Thanks for the kind words, will do re slowing the pace just a bit, getting the comments here has been a big help to me in deciding what to focus on, with actual trade examples and entry/exit techniques.

October 27th, 12:19PM

"I would like to learn from you how to analyse the broader market and identify potential reversal signs. Thanks..." - Lee
Reply from Ken: Hi Lee, smart point. That IS one of the topics I'll be covering in Thursday's live webinar, because it's an often-missed area that traders seem to struggle with. They mistakenly trade specific chart patterns in isolation, without putting the trade in context of the "big picture" (like the VIX, TRIN, 2-Day high/low COMPQ/S&P, sector percentages, ETF percentages (like the SPY/QQQQ vs VXX/FAZ/QID spread) and other must-know tactics. I'll go over it on Thursday. Thanks.

The trading industry is a lot like the movie "The Matrix", where much of the training is, frankly, surface level bs that professional traders laugh at. The truth about trading is that it's very difficult and you need to know how to combine multiple indicators for decisions, and that your "unrealized P&L" column in your trading workstation is your most important trading signal -- you use charts to scan, your P&Ls to manage your trades.

"I truly enjoy the entry and exit points. The entry always seems the easiest so I need to learn discipline that as soon as I see gain to take my profit. Is this something you struggle with to as a beginner?" - Nick C.
Reply from Ken: Hi Nick, right - managing exits correctly was a huge struggle for me, for years in fact. What I've found in testing out thousands of trades over the years, is that good trades feel "late in, early out", vs the other way around... being more selective on when to get in, then using partial-position trailing stops to lock in gains (as well as buy-stop orders to add to winning positions w/position sizing), is essential.

"have so many forex products hitting my inbox promising the earth and not living up to there hype,i really dont know what way to turn or who can be trusted any more, lots of money spent and still no better off, looking for someone to put my trust in and restore my belief in forex" - Darren
Reply from Ken: Hi Darren, agree. The first thing to check is, does the person you're learning Forex from have any trading industry credibility? Have they spoken at forex expos like I have, are they published in the industry, or are they just some marketer with a website (99% of the forex vendors are shams). How long have they been in business? Remember, since it's unregulated, any bs artist can claim to teach forex. Learn from professionals.

Look instead for help from good trustworthy credible people, like my colleagues Peter Bain, Kathy Lien, Boris Schlossberg, and Steve Nison. Not the internet marketer fakers out there.

When trading a sideways mkt, what indicators do you use, if any, and why? Please explain/show real or example indicator settings for various timeframes. Also, what velocity or momentum indicator(s) you might use to alert you that the mkt is changing from a sideways mkt to a trending mkt. Explain settings you use and why. Thanks." - Mark S.

Reply from Ken: Hi Mark, great questions. I use the ADX to help filter out stocks/forex pairs in sideways markets, as it does a great job of "magnifying" the underlying volatility in whatever I'm trading (I use ADX >30 for forex, ADX >40 for stocks, step parameter 14). I use new high-volume cups, engulfing patterns/3 line breaks and more; will do re covering those in upcoming webinars, thanks.

"Hello Ken,
I'm a swing trader and you webinars on day trading has help me a lot in setting up a trade, ie., entry, stop, and target. I'm also beginning to learn ADX Mastery which I recently purchased. An early signal from ADX together with candle patterns tremendously helps me in deciding to enter the trade and with confidence. However, there are so many instruments to choose from that it is quite a challenge to analyze each one of them. Is there a way to zero in on the stocks that are potentially good trades? I could probably start with the sector indices and filter through the many stocks within that sector. I wonder if you could help in minimizing the search task for stocks to trade. Thanks. Best regards," - Joaquin R.

Reply from Ken: Hi Joaquin, good question. Personally I look at the various lists out there, like percent gainers/losers in the NASDAQ/NYSE using ctrl-L in eSignal, also the lists on and It's a lot of manual work looking through the various charts and stocks to see which have the best patterns, eg a trader should expect to take at least 20 minutes each day (which is actually a lot of time), to scan through various lists to see what's "in motion" (I like stocks with at least 1-2 point intraday range and volume of >1.5M shares/day, priced $12-$40 is where most of the stocks I personally trade are at, though I also trade BIDU/RIMM and other wide-range high flyers).

"With all of the head-faking that goes on with Level II quotes, is tape reading a dying art? Does one really need to understand tape reading in today's trading environment?" - Frank M.
Reply from Ken: Hi Frank, the head-faking that goes on does indeed render reading L2 largely useless (since decimilized markets in the early 2000s), however tape reading is the perfect countermeasure, since mms can't fake order flow; eg real transactions being printed, the volume, velocity and other signals, are absolutely essential to know, for intraday traders.

"Hi ken, This will be my first webinar with you and I appriciate that it will be about live trading. I would be very interested in basics like: how to distinguish by means of one ore more indicators in an objective way whether the market is likely to move up, down or sideways. I think this is the most essential to know before entering a trade.
I am looking forward for the replay of your webinar, because it will be in the middle of te night for me. It would be nice for me when webbinars could be at noon EST." - Rob S.

"Your presentation is very lively with clarity on the way you interact with your audience. The session allows for such interaction which enabled us to be able to grasp what was delivered in the webinar. Keep up the momentum to teach with passion.Thank you, Ken," - Alvin W.
Reply from Ken: Hi Alvin, thank you... it's the interaction that's key in my webinars, you've hit upon it. I ask traders to "let me know a stock ticker, or forex pair to look at" and I'll pull up a specific chart and answer traders' individual questions, LIVE during the webinar from my actual trading workstation. That's a big plus compared to the slideshow-only type webinars that others do, I believe. It's important to work with a real trader, on an actual workstation during webinars, so genuine learning occurs. Great point.

When does a s/r line cease to have resonance? Also, just a couple of questions - 1: do 7 day forex breakouts include Sundays? [are there fx pairs more prone to this?]..and 2: Does the market give any clues as to when a security might be about to exceed its daily ATR value on any trading day? Kind regards" - Philip H.

"I am tired of wasting my time with all those who say they can double and triple your money and when you take a closer look they lose more than they make.  I'm looking for solid fundamentals from someone who knows the market." - Don G.
Reply from Ken: Hi Don, great point. Traders look crestfallen when I speak at Traders' Expos and tell them that it'll take at least two years before they can even consider getting close to breakeven as a trader, and that the more likely outcome is they'll still lose all their money. The truth is this is very hard, and anyone who tells you different is full of it. I hope nobody believes the claims of vendors promising great returns and double/triple their money, or trading in 20 minutes a day (that's a load of horses#!t). Be intelligent, deeply skeptical and realize this is a very tough game! Sounds like you do, so that's a good thing.

Reply from Ken: Hi Bente, hmm thanks but I don't use %R. I use tape reading, candle charts, sector percentages, opening range 2-day high/low breakouts, gaps, ETF premarket indicators and S&P/nas futures premarket directional charts, ATR/ADX and other signals.

"Your thoughts on whether tape reading is a useful trading skill and whether only applicable to day trading. If you use tape reading, would you consider a webinar on what and how?" - Dennis D.
Reply from Ken: Hi Dennis - yes I absolutely use tape reading, had done some very well received professional webinars on the topic earlier this year; it's a "must know" skill that's good for both intraday and swing trading. I'd published an AT mag article back in 2002 on the topic, and spoke at the Traders' Expo Anaheim back in 2001 on tape reading as well. It's a topic that others are now copying, from what I've taught.

"I'm looking for technique & not special s/w." - Mike P.
Reply from Ken: Hi Mike, that's good to hear. I don't produce software, I think it's best for traders to learn the actual trading skills that can be applied regardless of software/charting, and that's what you'll learn in working with me. Software is a crutch and most doesn't work anyways (talking about the robots and green arrow/red arrow stuff). Some is helpful for scanning; ultimately your success depends on entry/exit/trade management skills though, not software. Agree. No special software here. Just real trading.

"Need help on controlling emotions.  Need to trade like a machine." - Paul L.
Reply from Ken: Hi Paul, great topic, I've found that starting all positions small, and using buy-stop and limit orders to automatically fill me, are the 2 best fixes for trading emotions. Less money on the line per trade, and trades entered automatically based on predefined entry triggers you set, combined with using the techniques that successful traders use.

October 26th, 2:09PM

"Most technical indicators are considered "lagging." Please discuss any that you feel are "leading." - Lori S.
Reply from Ken: Hi Lori, right. The only single indicator that I've found provides any decent lead-indicator (and that, due largely just to it capturing volatility, which often continues), is the Average Directional Index (ADX). I published a popular Active Trader mag article on it earlier this year and also just launched my new system (see a real trade example video on the site there, if you'd like). Mostly though, trading successfully is more about managing your scaled-in positions and risk carefully than it is looking for leading indicators. As a former corporate statistician, and current trader, you're right about most indicators being lagging. On longer timeframe charts, 50/100/200 MAs are occasionally helpful as lagging indicators to help identify s/r levels, to use in managing entries & exits.

Reply from Ken: Hi Pete, for free charts I like and; I started off using Medved's "quotetracker" (free) back in the late 90s, then went with eSignal in 1999 and have been a customer/fan ever since, they're great. I also use for my broker since commissions are only $1 each and their trading platform is excellent.

October 26th, 1:36PM

"Hi Ken, thank you for the invitation.  I have yet to attend one of your webinars, but this looks excellent.  For future webinars, I can think of two things that would help (at least me) tremendously:
1)  how to effectively use covered calls on stocks already in an investors portfolio (and when and when not to use);
2) how much money to use per trade, and what % gain to look for, in order to offset the costs of short term and frequent trading commissions.

But thanks for all the great help you have given !" - Dave D.

Reply from Ken: Hi Dave, good point - fyi the reason I do that is because when I survey my traders before each webinar to ask "what kind of trader are you, day trader, swing trader or both?" most of the traders do both types of trading. Good idea though, I'll start offering specific webinars tailored "for swing traders only" and "for day traders only", for more in depth tactics. That's exactly the kind of feedback I'm looking for - thanks!

"I always look forward to your webinars and find them very informative. I like the fact that your webinars are not sales pitch for over price software that sounds good but does not deliver after it is purchased ( I wish I had attended your last FX webinar before I purchased some of the software that I did).  I have since learned that there is enough information from your webinars and courses to teach me how to trade than relying on overpriced software." - Wayne B.

Reply from Ken: Hi Wayne, well said. Most trading software out there is worthless. Promises of easy riches with pushbutton ease. If it sounds too good to be true, it is. I say the truth, which is that trading is very hard to master, it takes years and isn't easy. But it can potentially be done, if you take the time to learn the entry, exit and trade management skills, from a real trader. Just ask yourself before buying anything, "would a real wall street trader-in-training buy this, or not? Be tough on vendors, demand proof, or don't waste money on them. Most trading vendors are snake oil bs artists and you shouldn't trust them.

I end up "inheriting" a lot of traders who've gone to my competitors first, and found out the truth about how they wasted their money on those phonies, then come to me for genuine help. It's not traders' fault if they're losing, because many of you have been led astray from clueless fake trading industry vendors who can't prove they even really trade. They falsely claim to trade, the truth is that most don't. Ask for P&L examples for simple proof BEFORE buying anything from any trading vendor, to weed out the wannabe marketer pretend-traders, from those of us who are the real thing. Here's why. Caveat emptor.

The best way to learn how to trade is to sit in front of monitors for 10+ years, watching the dang charts go up and down like I did; characterizing their moves, how far they run, what the ebb and flow of buy/sell pressure looks and feels like every day, and paper/practice trade until you figure out what works consistently. It's tough, though. That's the truth.

"Have you ever incorporated pivot point lines in your quest for key reversals, and how valid are there use ?" - Louis G.
Reply from Ken: Hi Louis, good question. I've tested classic pivot points and found them to be largely worthless (vendors who hawk those show carefully-cherry picked examples, not the average of how it works on all trades). The two types of errors in signals we see (speaking as a former quality engineer/statistician), are a) too many false positives and/or b) failure to identify successful entries (alpha/beta errors). In my real trading tests, I've found that classic pivot points simply generate too many of both types of errors.

Instead, I focus on things like price elasticity (ATR/average trading ranges), candle charts (hammers/shooting stars) and ADX (average directional index) to help with reversal signals and volatility-based entries. I'll cover how this all works in Thursday's webinar... thanks!

Reply from Ken: Hi Ken, will do... we'll be covering roughly 70% swing trading and 30% day trading related examples to learn from. Tip: I personally start all day trades off as small-share swing trades, then I scale up into those that take out new highs (only), for intraday entries and exits. It's a great way to keep risk small from the beginning; I'll show how to do that in the webinar as well.

Reply from Ken: Hi Mike, absolutely. I like to show traders actual trading examples and setups they can use. Also, as a former corporate trainer to over 130 Fortune 500 companies (back in the 90's) I'm an experienced professional trainer and can deliver content in a much more professional way than others in the industry... my webinars are very interactive, upbeat, fast-paced and focused, so you can learn faster and with a more practical, "hands on" approach.

"Will the Pivot points be used as STOP LOSS or Entry / Exit Points? Also, what are the Candlestick symbols used for Pivot points? These points I want to clarify – if I get access to your esteemed webinar – Thanks" - Nandini M.
Reply from Ken: Hi Nandini, good question. I don't use classical "pivot points" as taught in academic trading textbooks; as a real trader, instead I teach traders how to use specific reversal signals for Both stop losses as well as initiating new positions.

"Your webinars are the best out there. You teach trading the way you trade, having a well planned out strategy that works. I would like to know if in this up market, what indicators would start showing a topping correction that might be taking place?" - Tom G.

Reply from Ken: Hi Tom, thanks for the kind words. You're right about having a strategy; that's key to success. Re topping corrections, we'll cover that in Thursday's event, briefly I'm looking at things like inverse/short ETFs taking out 2day highs (keep an eye on FAZ this week for example), shooting stars on daily 3-month candle chart, and loss of prior day's low/2 gap down sequential days in a row for the SPY/QQQQ. Today 10/25 we still had a big SPY gap up premarket, though sideways in-session. More to come Thursday.

"Got any strategies for getting out of a 'trade gone bad'?  I know, you don't let them go bad, but if you swing trade and hold overnight, you sometimes get caught by a huge morning gap and find yourself in a place where you would certainly hate to take that big of a loss if there is even a shread of evidence that the price might recover.  

I know it is "forbidden", but I've sometimes added to those positions to lower my cost basis, hoping the market will trade closer to the new break even point.  This actually works most of the time, but I sometimes have to wait "a long time" to get there... case in point, the flash crash got me out of a couple of short positions that had gone bad, but even without the flash, the markets would have eventually traded down to salvage those positions. BTW... thanks for all you do to help your fellow traders." - Jerry M.

Reply from Ken: Hi Jerry, how to get out of a "trade gone bad?". hmm same as a bad marriage, get out sooner rather than later (lol). Seriously, I like to scale out of losing positions in increments, usually 1/3 to 1/2 the position at a time (for example I'm near to where I'm scaling out of overnight short-ETF positions if the market keeps on rallying, to keep stop-outs small). You're right on comments re adding to losing positions, sometimes it'll work if you can wait things out, but I've found in this economy more often than not things may go "Q"/bankrupt (like my circuit city and blockbuster losing trades come to mind) before recovery. So the tip is to scale down out of losing positions, using re-entry triggers to scale back in if they do come back, but always keep as little out there at risk as possible for downtrending stocks/fx pairs if they're against you.

"I would like to see someone give valid, usable data on trading skills without constantly touting their own proprietary indicators. Just one or two tidbits of something that is different and useful." - Larry E.
Reply from Ken: Hi Larry, I agree with you 110%... the good thing about my trading techniques is that they're relatively easy to learn, and aren't proprietary nor do they need special software or plugins. It's good old-fashioned roll up your sleeves and check things like a) premarket futures, b) SPY/QQQQ gap directional bias premarket, c) setting entries and exits for swing and day trades with breakout and pivot patterns that can be used over and over again, and d) using position sizing to scale into winning trades. Plus more of course, like using sectors, TRIN, tape reading and my other strategies. And they can be used for both swing as well as day trading, to keep things flexible for all kinds of traders.

Here's some quick usable tips from this preview of my recent August 2010 Active Trader article:
Momentum trading: Using pre-market trading and range breakouts

Another Daytrading University advantage, in addition to learning from a real trader, is that there are no proprietary/black box software/hidden indicators that require expensive software. Just pattern recognition skills, discipline and a willingness to test things out thoughtfully, like a pro trader.
As far as usefulness goes, I'll let some of my traders speak for me in this video clip... Thanks!

"I would like to see some losing trades, and if you exit prior to your stop as candles print out suggesting that your initial analysis needs to be modified!" - Peter E.

Reply from Ken: Hi Peter, sure thing - see this forum thread for hundreds of examples of my losing actual trades I've made, as well as winners. Note the example at top, where I made $660 net profit in a single day with roughly 70% Losing trades and only 30% winners, thanks to using position sizing tactics correctly: Forum Examples of Some of Ken's Actual Recent Trades (with brokerage P&L screencap proof, including lots of losing trades to learn from. Mostly what I learned was, avoid trading 11am-2pm, and keep all stops as small as possible; plus use a $1 per commissh broker like to keep costs low.

Regarding using candles, learn more from from my colleague Steve Nison, I've learned a lot from Steve re trade management w/candles, like what price proves the trade wrong, often using horizontal support/resistance lines to help. For example if I'm long and wrong in a trade, the loss of a hammer low (plus a safety buffer of roughly 3/8 point, .35 or so, to filter for false breakouts/market makers/specialist running stops), is an exit I'll use, to scale/stop out. Same thing to lock in profits, for example if in a winning open long, I'll use the loss of a 10-minute shooting star low as an exit trailing stop to lock in a win. Be sure to order for Steve and I together, if you haven't already.

Remind me in Thursday's webinar and I'll go over a few examples for you - thanks!

"Hi Ken, of all the trading webinars available, yours are the most professional, both in terms of delivery and content. Full of useful information (no filler), they are always interesting! - Barry S.

Reply from Ken: Thanks, Barry... I appreciate that. The main thing is to show traders how actual trading is done, compared to all the bs webinars from the phony pretend-trader vendors out there. So these can hopefully help traders learn how to "turn the corner", by showing actual trading examples that worked (as well as learning from the stops). It's a process. I need to slow down though, as sometimes I talk too fast in the webinars (can't help it, I get excited talking about trading, it's a lot of fun, once you "get it").

Reply from Ken: Hey Neil, you're not alone... that's a top challenge for many traders... I got frustrated myself in getting stopped out too early, or waiting til too late to exit, causing large stops... so I tested and figured out a lot of new position-scaling tactics that I use in combination with candle charts and my momentum breakout patterns, to help solve that... I'll cover a lot in this upcoming Thursday night webinar... be sure to ask questions... see you there.

"How do you calculate where to scale up with the momentum doubler?" - Bill P.
Reply from Ken: Hi Bill, good question. It depends entirely upon the price above which you're in the money by, with unrealized P&Ls... so for example I'll add to a winning trade once it's in the money by at least $20-$50, by doubling the share size. In terms of chart patterns, in general I'll start with .35 above the 2-day high for intraday trades, and just beyond 1ATR (average trading range) for swings. I cover more in my webinar, that's the brief notes to practice papertrading with, to help get started. -Ken
