========== Nasdaq 100 Real-time Signals - First 48 Days

If you missed the announcement, we've added Real-time Signals for the Nasdaq 100. Trading the e-mini Nasdaq (NQ), one and two lots, Ralph Russell gained an impressive $35,550 in only 13 weeks.

Russell's style is as entertaining as it is educational. If you trade the Nasdaq, or want to learn, this is an excellent opportunity to trade along with a master.

Join us in trading the Nasdaq 100.

With the addition of the Nasdaq Real-time Signals all new free trials will be given access to both the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100. You will also receive the Overnight Update for both markets. Request your free trial today.

S&P 500 Schedule : Last trading day and update December 22nd. Trading resumed January 3rd. Please keep these holiday schedules in mind when reviewing our Overnight Update Archives.

========== 10 Winning Techniques of Successful Traders

You've read the DON'T lists. Did you realize the brain will hear the command, but ignore the negative? Have you noticed when you tell a child NOT to do something, that is the very thing they are now most likely to do? When you say, "Don't forget to ..." your brain hears only, "forget to ..."

Next time say, "Remember to ..." Use this technique the next time you get read to tell anyone what you don't want. Phrase it as what you do want and you'll get a much better result.

Here is our list of the 10 things you SHOULD DO if you want to join the ranks of the successful, long-term traders. Follow them and you'll be on the road to trading success.

Successful traders:

    1. Always trade with a plan. They identify risk and profit objectives before trading.
    2. Stick with the trading plan. Successful traders do not second guess, nor follow hunches.
    3. Have sufficient trading capital, and only trade with risk capital they can well afford to lose.
    4. Trade what is, not what they think will be.
    5. Have no directional bias. They let the market dictate which direction to trade.
    6. Consider fundamentals, but depend on the technicals to agree -- charts tell the real story.
    7. Let profits run. They trade multiple contract so winners can be left in the market longer for greater profits.
    8. Cut losses short. As soon as a trade goes bad, they exit.
    9. Practice strict discipline. Successful traders continually practice their skills and learn from every trade.
    10. Practice good money management. Trade only liquid markets, and see No. 1.

========== Daytrader's Tool Box

Navigation has been changed, so now links to the following sections can be found in the Trader's Tool Box:

  • Daytrading Q & A (formerly FAQS) - Questions and answers in categories such as General Daytrading, The Bulletin Signals, Overnight Updates, Technical Analysis, Novice Trading and Subscription Options.

  • The Guide to Daytrading Profits - Explains the Real-time Signals in detail. What we do in our Real-time Signals and how we do it. This section can be read in about 15 minutes, and will give you a complete understanding of how the Real-time Signals work.

========== Mental Mastery for Traders

The experts agree, over 85% of trading success depends on the psychological aspects of trading. How is it that two traders, using the same methods, can have drastically different results? Most likely it is because one of those traders has achieved self-mastery.

Winning traders have a clear picture of their objective, are completely confident, and are able to follow through without hesitation. They see the signal, say to themselves, "Yes, this is a trade," and they feel right about it. They trust their system and they trust themselves, and they take action. These qualities all make-up the mind set of the successful trader.

Anyone with a strong enough desire, can master these same techniques in a very short period of time

  • Learn to model the strategies of successful traders
  • Develop personal strategies to give you the edge over those using just technical and fundamental analysis
  • Become instantly more confident and secure in your abilities
  • Access states of mind that help create success and wealth
  • Overcome limiting beliefs and behaviors that are keeping you stuck

If you have a good trading plan, but find yourself unable to execute without hesitation. If you talk yourself out of good trades. If you are more afraid of losing, than excited about winning, get ready! End those frustrations right now.

Using NLP techniques, Kathryn Martyn has developed an approach that has successfully enabled traders just like you to overcome those limitations and break through to become the winning trader you know you are.

========== Keyboard Shortcuts - Text Too Small?

Do you occasionally come across web pages that have text so tiny it is nearly impossible to read? If you use a wheel mouse such as the Logitech or Microsoft Wheel mouse, you can increase or decrease the text size on a web page by clicking Ctrl - and moving the wheel toward you for larger, and away from you for smaller size.

Each wheel turn will increase the font size by a factor of 1.
