It’s been a great home made food and friends week!
I was eating pancakes with Melania on Tuesday – there’s a certain batter vs nutella vs way to fold them technique you know, and devouring home made pizzas with an old friend Johnny Cass on Wednesday. Its great to be around people who support and inspire you, and I had a great time.
While we were messing around with our food, I was thinking about the latest newspaper article and about something that was written.
I don’t know if you caught it – but I was featured in the Daily Express – they called me the “Prophet of Profit”, and controversial. HHHmmmm – really? I don’t think so. The fact is I’m a realist and down to earth, and I am reminded of this every day with my family.
I’d like to think that the Investment Mastery message about trading is that you should aim to get consistent results, put the work in, and secure your financial future, and that we’re here for you every step of the way. I don’t know what’s controversial about that. They also mis-quoted a couple of our graduates, (thanks to those of you who agreed to be interviewed) but hey that’s journalism I suppose.
In fact she was very keen to come back the next day. She goes on to say ‘Hours later I became disillusioned, doubtful. I voice my feelings to those closest to me……. Unsurprisingly my family discourage me from attending the second day’. Er, no mention of the snow storm then?
My point is this. Finding the right support and being in the right peer group, with people who encourage you, and who also want to succeed is paramount to your success – whether you want to be a journalist, a trader, an athlete or a success in your chosen field. Being with people who are on your wavelength, is just as important as knowing which stocks to trade. That’s why I really congratulate all of you who are on the forum and the calls, read the emails and watch the videos, and let us know your feedback and results.
If there’s something you want covered on a call or a video, then let me know. You’d not only be helping yourself, but I bet there’s a lot more people out there who could also benefit.
Trading Questions Answered
On the Monday webinar, Paul was asked ‘how do you make a decision on a trade if its a close call?’.
In this 4 minute video, Paul explains with a stock example, when and if its right to enter a trade, especially if the stock is ‘sort of’ following the right pattern. Emotions can get in the way. This is the time to remember the rules and stick to them. Paul shows you how to decide.
I was looking at some email stats this week as well – we don’t get many unsubscribes to be honest and I’m gobsmacked that one individual who was on our mailing list – and who was a graduate, sent a spam complaint about an email that showed them how we traded a particular stock. Wow. I almost called him up to ask why he thought that was not useful. Interesting, eh?
Finally…….. I’ve sent Lukas to the FX show at Olympia so lets see what he has to report next week – are any of you going? Let me know what you thought.
Until next time!
