James Explains His Take On Market Structure
[07:03] I kept basically, recording my losses, learning from my losses, and learning where I’m trying to do as best as possible to learn where I was going wrong.
[07:24] You can learn from the market, learn from your losses, or you can learn from a mentor.
[07:59] It took me about 2 years of process of actually getting to the consistency stage.
[14:02] The one thing that I stress and that I highlight the most is backtesting. It’s so powerful and it will enable you to work how it will work for you as a person.
[14:53] My most important rule is just keep it as simple as possible.
[15:57] Trading for me is a numbers game.
[16:51] You can read so much just from the price action that the market is showing you.
[18:01] Trade management is very important. It eliminates your psychological state from the market, and you can also maximize your profit from the market.
[19:41] By focusing on too many markets you’re just going to be confusing yourself.
[23:31] You must backtest to see what markets work best for you, what market’s best for your timeframe, and what markets work best for your timezone.
[26:26] You don’t need to be on the charts all the time.
[26:42] Focus on yourself, forget everyone else.
[27:06] Focus on yourself, focus on the higher timeframe, and focus when you can be at the charts.
[30:14] You compete with nobody but yourself. You’re here to grow your account.
[34:54] You need to make sure that the trading style works for you.
[37:04] The only way you can be a mentor is if you’ve experienced all the things that you are advising somebody not to do.
