Screen time

The last one was the most important to be honest. Nothing will replace actual screen time on charts.

I do not recommend a course what so ever, as each trader is different and there style has yet to come out. Meaning on are you a scalper? or a swing trader? Do you use a Moving average system? Or Renko Blocks?

What Strategy Should A New Trader Use?

So you are a new trader and want to know what system you should use? With that being said, I have outlined so many different style trading systems on this blog. I will use the Renko Blocks in this example as it is one of my favorite strategies and can be used by any trader.

Renko blocks are a type of strategy that uses fixed periods which work for many traders, however each person trades differently so you should learn about other systems before deciding on your own style

A new trader would need to practice trading with real money first – then start small – trade what you are comfortable with and only increase when more confident

Practice makes perfect. Learn from blogs like mine, read books or articles on different styles, watch YouTube videos etc. The most important thing is to get some screen time!

I also have come up with another system that I like and use everyday. ( See Pic ) I call it the 72 wave system, and it tends to keep you on the right side of the trade. Half the battle in any market is being on the right side of the trade. The 72 wave system is really nothing more than the 72 EMA, Just mine is a little more fancy then yours.

If none of these strike your fancy, there are plenty more HERE

Also I have outlined many in this blog.

 New Day Traders

If you are brand new and have never traded anything, I have said it many times in this blog. You should start on the weekly charts, Then down to daily. The reason I say this, is because smaller time frames like the 5 minute, tend to chew up traders.

And you really can get down on yourself when the markets do this to you. Once you are profitable on the larger time frames, Just move down one. Now the guy who trained me still to this day will not trade under the daily.

# Tip : Most banks do not trade under the daily neither…. Hint Hint

Banks tend to trade larger time frames, and yes i know you will freak out when you are 5 bucks down. But the reality is you need to separate yourself from that and realize you will take losses.


No matter what style trader you become, the truth is at the end of the day this like anything else in life needs to be a passion.

If you are in it for the fast buck, you will be disappointed very quickly. I have seen many traders come and go with the tail between there legs. And yes I do realize some folks are gifted in this industry.

But your heart really needs to be into this, or you will fail.
