Putting aside the exact tools of technical analysis and their respective strategies, it is actually more important to understand the reason why you are using technical analysis in the first place.
In this article, John Murphy, the author of the famous book “Technical Analysis of the Financial Markets” attempts to shed light on 10 laws of technical analysis which he believes that traders need to be in tune with.
If you are able to internalize these 10 laws of technical analysis, you will be in a much more solid foundation to understand how to use technical analysis tools and apply methodologies to greater accuracy and effect.
Technical analysis while important to a trader, is not the most crucial element of a long term sustainable trading business.
In the eyes of the author of this article, technical analysis is simply the Analysis component of his trading framework, while there are two more components which are even more important, namely Trade Management and Mind Management.
If you still do not know how position sizing, risk management and money management works, then you have not learn Trade Management.
If you still do not know how to maintain emotional discipline, manage your bias or be rational with your decision making process, you have not master Mind Management.
So read on and learn to master these key ingredients of trading right away!
We often hear that trading psychology is one of the most important skill required to be a proficient and profitable trader.
However, this might be too big a topic for most as the concept of trading psychology can sometimes be quite abstract and not easy to relate to unless you have a strong sense of awareness about your emotions and behaviour.
In this article, the author attempts to summarise the key learnings he received after reading Mark Douglas’s book, “The Disciplined Trader”.
If you do not have time to read the entire book, please make sure you at least try to absorb whatever you can from this article on what it means to be a disciplined trader.
