“Since it’s the second week of the new year, it’s time to review your trading plan. As learned in your classes, a trading plan is super super important to keep you on path and structured. Some of the things that should be in your trading plan are correct position sizing (which means don’t trade too large), risk management (large or small losses, it’s part of the game), and lastly let your winners run and get that 4:1 or 5:1 reward to risk setup. Happy New Year.” Wise words, Dan! Click here to access or begin your Trading Plan. Want to find out more about Dan? Click here!
