TRADING THEORY----My rule for adding to a losing trade differs from mainstream thinking because for this reason that if you buy soybeans and the trade goes against you adding to this trade would be adding to a loser, which is correct. However many traders won’t add to the soybean long position but they will buy gold or some other commodity without getting out of soybeans first.

What are your rules to initiate a trade on the long or short side of the commodity market? I have been asked this question many times throughout my career and my opinion is simply to buy on a 20-25 day high breakout in price on a closing basis only or sell on a 20-25 day low breakout to the downside also on a closing basis.

Trade With The Trend

TRADING THEORY---Trade with the short term trend, as the saying goes in futures trading the trend is your friend but sometimes you will be a market that is trending higher and then has a false breakout to the upside and then suddenly sells off causing you a 2% loss on your equity and you say to yourself that was a bad trade and should I do something different on my next trade.

The trends recently have been poor making this rule even more important than ever as this rule is extremely important as I witness it being abused constantly creating tremendous loses that are sometimes difficult to come back from.

How Can You Use Moving Averages To Your Advantage? A simple moving average is calculated by adding the closing price of a commodity such as crude oil for a number of time periods and then dividing this total by the number of time periods. Short-term averages respond quickly to changes in the price of the underlying commodity, while long-term averages are slower to react.

When Should You Exit A Trade ?

WHEN DO YOU EXIT A TRADE ?-- The biggest question that I have been asked is when do I exit a winning trade and when do I exit a losing trade? In my opinion the rule of thumb that I use is placing my stop loss at the 10 day high if I’m short or a 10 day low if I’m long as the theory is that I do not want something to go against me for more than 2 weeks.

What do I mean when I talk about chart structure and why do I think it’s so important when deciding to enter or exit a trade? I define chart structure as a slow grinding up or down trend with low volatility and no chart gaps.

The Longer The Consolidation The Better

There are many different theories about how long does a meaningful consolidation have to last before you enter a trade ? In my opinion I always want to see a consolidation that lasts at least 8 or more weeks before I would consider entering.

Do You Have A Game Plan?

TRADING THEORY---This rule is very simple and it states that one must have a game plan and use it consistently even during periods of loses which will happen to you over the course of time. Do not suddenly start to risk 5-10% because you have to catch up and get your loses back quickly, stick with the game plan and over the course of time this will help improve your percentages of success.
