On-demand Module 2 - Basic risk evaluation prior to entering a trade – ESSENTIAL SKILLS

Successful trades rely on asymmetric risk/reward ratios in favor of reward. Many amateur traders only think of rewards and big gains and the fear of missing out leads to greed, which eventually leads to account burnout.

  • Use Median Line Analytics & validations to evaluate risk
  • Quantifying your initial entry risk
  • Successive entries in a trend
  • Counter-trends within a trend
  • Continuation of trend after a correction – risk & stop loss adjustment
  • Risk management & Position sizing
  • Progressive adjustment of Stop Loss using action & reaction to the ML & SH’s
