An Introduction To Trading Systems

An Introduction To Trading Systems


Whether you plan to venture into, foreign (forex) or stock exchange, trading systems will help you become successful in this endeavor. But before proceeding, it is vital first to understand what they are and how they function.


Trading systems pertains to specific rules or parameters that determine points of entry and exit, called signals, for a given equity. They are often indicated on a chart in real time and prompts immediate implementation of trade.

In the construction of trading system parameters, the most common technical analysis tools consist of moving averages, Bollinger bands, stochastic, relative strength, and oscillators. Most of the time, a combination of these tools determines a rule. However, there are also instances wherein only one indicator is used in rule creation.


Benefits of a Trading System

Utilizing a trading system provides several benefits to a forex or stock market trader.


Can Increase Profit

Coping with losses is one of the most challenging aspects of being in a forex or stock exchange market account. To recover the money they lose from trading, investors usually make hasty decisions and consequently lose more money in the process.


Since most of these systems are automated, there is no need for the investor to plan, as it is the software that determines when to enter and exit trading. By doing so, losses will be minimized, and there is a greater chance of increasing profits.


Not Time Consuming

Again, since most systems are optimized and automated, the trader need not exert a lot of time analyzing and initiating trades. The system is designed to both generate the signals and perform actual trade.


More Convenient Because They Have Been Optimized By Others

There are a lot of systems that have been developed and currently being marketed. However, availing of the work of other people entails payment of a specified fee. However, you need to be careful when choosing a company because many of them are fraudulent.


Pitfalls of Trading Systems

While they may have their advantages, trading systems are not perfect and present their own disadvantages.

This is the most significant disadvantage of a trading system. Creating a trading system may require a solid knowledge of technical analysis, the ability to decide empirically, or a comprehensive understanding of the functions of parameters.


While you may not be involved in the development of the system, familiarization with the parameters can be equally challenging.


Requires Realistic Assumptions

For a system to become active, you need to have knowledge of how to differentiate simulated from actual results. This is known as “slippage” and represents one of the major pitfalls in the effectiveness of a system.


Development Takes Time

The task of developing your own system is time-consuming. Getting it to run and work effectively as well as testing it may take some time. Not to mention the fact that you have to make a paper trade in real time to make sure that your system is reliable. The factor of slippage may also come into play, which will require you to revise your system completely.


As mentioned above, you need to be careful when choosing a system. Some firms are out to get your money and offer a system that does not work. However, there are likewise legitimate companies so you should determine the difference between the two.


A trading system can be a helpful tool for novice traders who want to succeed and make a living out of this endeavor.

Are you part of the working poor? 3 weapons are working against you.

Are you part of the working poor? 3 weapons are working against you.


It does not matter how much money you make a year. If you are a street sweeper or a corporate executive, you may be part of the working poor. Sometimes people get confused by looking at the media and what wealth and poverty appears to be. One of the most significant confusions come from the trappings of being wealthy. This article encourages you to be different, open your eyes and take an honest look at your life. Great things are happening around you, but it’s up to you to allow them to take place.


Desperate woman with too many bills to pay


If you are reading this article, you are in the crossroad of a change in your life, and you may not be fully aware of it, because nothing happens by chance. This article presupposes that you have an income, and you are doing a fact check of where you are versus where you want to be.


Here are a few questions:

  1. Do you find yourself not opening your mail or not answering your phone, because you don’t know the phone number and use the excuse that it may be a telemarketer?
  2. Do you believe that nothing will change and the people around you agree?
  3. Do you sometimes find, that you do not have enough money to cover your monthly responsibilities?


Fear Mindset

“Names must your fear be before banish it you can!”

Yoda (Star Wars the empire strikes back)


You must define your fears before you can do anything about them. Most people don’t believe they dwell in fear because it is the way they’ve always done it. That repetitiveness is what caused them to live in that false comfort zone, and it’s that comfort zone that keeps them away from doing anything that will broaden their horizons. The things we most fear are the things we most need to do.


You must uncover fear disguised as optimism. There is very little difference between “Oh it is hopeless, so do not bother doing anything,” vs. “Do not bother just wait; it will turn out fine anyway.” In both cases, nothing will happen, opportunity lost. Growth requires present action in all things. Action may not bring happiness. However, there is no happiness without action.

You know that often people will dress up their fears to resemble optimistic denial. Often people will choose unhappiness over uncertainty. If people don’t know what to do, they will decide to do nothing instead.

What would happen if you did the opposite of the people around you? What would you give up if you continue this track for 5, 10, or even 15 years? It leads us into the next weapon.


Your Center of Influence

Everyone has heard the statement, “Birds of a feather flock together.” Know the difference between, need vs. want and prosperity vs. wealthy.

Let us use the example of Clark Kent versus Bruce Wayne; both want a new car to impress someone. Both have a team of people around them that are like-minded, but one will probably need to get a loan to get said a new car (hopefully without a cosigner), and the other can buy the dealership.


Both Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne have a team of people around them to maintain their way of life. Even in an alter ego state as superheroes, they have a group of like-minded people around them to defeat the foes of the day.

Both Clark Kent and Bruce Wayne had strong mentors around them to guide and lead them through their informative times. When you are learning new information for growth, it is essential that you look at the top 5 people in your life and see if they meet the level of achievement that you’re striving to reach.

Now let’s look at your center of influence, are they going in the direction that you would like to go? Are they like-minded with the same dreams and goals you have? Will they need to get a cosigner for a loan, or can they buy the dealership




The stress of being different

We have explored your fears and visited the people that make up your center of influence. Now let’s deal with stress and how it’s crippling effect can hinder you from achieving your desires.


The wealthy have the same number of hours in a day as everyone else, and they must eat and drink to maintain a healthy lifestyle. But what most people do not realize that they suffer from stress just like everyone else. The only difference is that they deal with a different type of pressure. They tend to make different decisions based on various information, knowledge and drive, also what they do on their downtime. It is what keeps them wealthy.


There are two types of stress destructive and constructive. Destruct stress cripples you where constructive stress encourages you to improve yourself and be better.


Stress and fear can go hand in hand, which often time is supported by your center of influence. So, dare to take a vacation in places where you have never been. Do things that excite you. See places that you have seen inside of magazines and television. Expose yourself to new environments and meet people from different lands, beyond your neighborhood.


Do the things that excite you more often, and this will enrich your life to the fullest. Create for yourself more options and start now. Stop waiting; there will rarely be a perfect time to do what it takes to get you on the path of excitement.

Stress in Teens Causes Mental Health Dysfunction

Stress in Teens Causes Mental Health Dysfunction


People are stressed all the time. Although a lot of those stressful situations are felt by a teenager, proper management must be done to help the teenager cope up effectively. When stress enters the system and the mind can no longer handle the effects, mental health dysfunction can occur.


It doesn’t necessarily mean that the brain will stop working. However, it will not work as normal as it can be. There are a lot of stress factors that cause a person to feel discouraged and misunderstood. It might be a loss of a loved one, a massive surprising change in his life, being bullied or teased all the time, home problems and difficulties and school problems can bring so much stress to an adolescent.

What are the causes of stress?


It is a fact that most of the stressors in a child’s life are those which can’t be easily recognized by the guardian or the parent. These include:


  • First time or new time events like shifting from primary to secondary schooling, moving to a room that makes the child uneasy, meeting a new teacher that makes the child pees his pants, or moving to another location are some examples.


  • Homework that takes away playtime and requires a lot of time to do. Sometimes, teens also need attention and help with their homework but there’s no one around to lend a hand.


  • Unrealistic expectations regarding his or her performance in school even though he or she has already done well. This will invoke the fear of not being better.


  • A loss in the family is one of the major factors that a teenager needs to cope up most. The loss also refers to losing a father or mother through a divorce. This can raise an emotional fear that will bind him from the truth that it can happen to him when he has his own family.


  • Low self-esteem.


  • Watching stressful news, reading mindboggling articles like terrorists or natural disasters.


  • A long-term medical problem like diabetes or something short-term like a fractured bone.


  • A member of the family experiencing an acute or chronic medical problem.


  • Accidents.


  • Financial home problems which oftentimes becomes the reason to stop schooling.


Transitions like these can affect the entire mechanism of an individual. Even though your child seems to be very small to be stressed, they experience it too.


Dealing with stress can be difficult because it is the byproduct of everyday life and situations. One confusing thing regarding stress is that the symptoms connected to it don’t always follow immediately the cause of it. Another trouble about stress is that some may experience it and others don’t given the same kind of situation.


One ideal thing to do when faced with stress is to learn to cope. You must teach your teens how to cope with stress. These suggestions can also be useful to adults.


  1. Letting your adolescent practice a healthy lifestyle which includes eating a healthy diet, having appropriate sleep and daily exercise.


  1. Provide enough time to talk to your child about his or her day and how he feels about it. Communication is always the best outlet for negativity.


  1. Set goals that are realistic and achievable for your child’s capability.


  1. Talk to your child about decisions and options that can make certain changes in your family’s life.


Achieving mental health for your adolescent is possible only if you do your part as a parent.


Metal health can be connected to finance. You can have anything you want if you are willing to put in the time, effort and plans to get to your goals.  Discover the secrets why the rich stay rich and the poor stay poor. Click Here to view a video with more life tips!  In closing, I invite you to share your comments on this and all the posts.
