In episode 91 of the Desire To Trade Podcast, I interview Mike Tedeschi, a day and swing trader running a portfolio as well as a trading chatroom. At the time of the interview, he has been trading for himself for over 6 years.
Mike looks at the investment world through a contrarian lens. By going against the herd, he positions himself to achieve the largest possible returns in the quickest time frame with the least amount of risk.
One of the topics we touch on is the need for a trading plan. Mike, like me, has also been developing a trading playbook that contains multiple trading strategies he uses on a daily basis based on how the market moves.
We also touched on the topic of trading alerts. As the main takeaway, you can make money in the market without being involved in the market at all times. There are times when the market isn't producing anything worth trading and that is where you need to be able to step away. There are absolutely no reasons to go in the market when there are no trades.
"Prices are never too high to begin buying or too low to begin selling" -Jesse Livermore
"If you can't make money on the leaders, you can't make money in the market"
If you treat trading like a hobby it's going to pay like a hobby.
There are no reasons to go in the market when there are no trades.
