11 Introduction to pairs trading Pairs Trading is a strategy that consists of buying one stock in a given industry, and selling short another stock, usually in the same industry. The undervalued stock is bought while the over valued stock is sold short. Pairs trading is often described as a market neutral strategy.

13 Reaching the FX Market FCMs or brokers act as a bridge between you and their liquidity partner (sometimes larger global banks) that you would otherwise not have sufficient capital to do business with. The large majority of off-exchange retail foreign currency brokers act as market makers, meaning that by keeping many trades in house they create their own liquidity. Some retail brokers clear trades directly through to the larger banks that provide their liquidity.

14 Interactive Brokers

15 Interactive Brokers Rated #1 by Barrons Tightest Forex Spreads Multiple Trading Platforms TraderWorkStation Mosaic Trading Platform Mobile Trading

16 Other Brokers Most popular software is MetaTrader Typically is not the FCM White label software that attaches to FCM FXCM is the largest retail FX Broker Most FX brokers are not covered by government SIPC insurance

17 Professionals vs. Amateurs Professionals Defined Plan (Business Plan) with goals: weekly, monthly, yearly Make money in any market Managed Risk: Always use stops/hedges Keep a Trading Journal in order to continually improve Specific time-tested strategies Only take cues from other pros Top tier tools (costs of doing business) Highly educated Amateurs No specific goals, strategies, or tactics Trade by seat of their pants (enter trades without any thought of the downside risk or upside reward) Make money only in bull market Focus on cost, not value Take trading advice from anyone with an opinion

18 Trading Business A failure to plan, is a plan to fail Have you ever met anyone with a successful business that didn t have a clear plan??? You probably won t meet many successful traders that haven t developed a solid game plan. In the trading business you need a structured approach, and a well thought out plan.

19 What s In a Trading Plan?

20 Goals What are your primary goals? PIP s per month Quarterly Returns/Yearly Returns What are your strengths and weaknesses? Build a plan that brings out your strengths and controls your weaknesses Challenges or limitations? When do you want to complete your goals? Finish Qualification Program Start Demo Trading Begin Live Trading How much time are you willing to dedicate? Set aside time for study, building your trading plan and demo trading Sunday FX Room and Mid-Week FX Room

21 Education Knowledge is power. What you don t know can hurt you. Solid foundation Sequence of study Available classes and content Expanding the tactics and techniques in your playbook. Learning other tradable instruments like options, futures, etc Expanding risk management tools and skills

22 Risk Management Trading is not gambling. The first rule of trading is to protect your capital! How much capital will you allocate to any one position? How much capital are you willing to put at risk on a single trade? How much exposure to risk are you comfortable with? Before you put your chips on the table, first consider the risk. Some people unfortunately equate trading to gambling. Educated traders understand risk, and develop skills and strategies to manage it.

23 Strategic Playbook Customize your playbook to match your personality and financial goals Clearly Define buy and sell points based on technical indicators Clearly Define your position management strategies. Cut losers and hold winners Know what to do (when you see a great play, how you can execute it through your online brokerage) Know when to do it (it s OK to sit on the sidelines when nothing jumps out at you)

24 Analysis Keeping a trading journal is an important part of your trading business. Journaling your trades will help you develop good habits. Help you learn from mistakes, and help you improve upon and repeat the behavior that leads to profitable trades. How will you keep track of your trading business? Trading journal General book keeping. Grading yourself. What should be in your trading journal? Completed trades from entry to exit Win/Loss ratio (batting average) Profit/Loss ratio (size of income trades vs. expense trades)
