BarroMetrics Views: A Thin Line
The thin line between trading success and failure was recently driven home.
End June this year, we completed the first Ultimate course. I view Ultimate as my best course to date. I had a new format (Flip the Classroom) which I believed would make a difference to the learning. So what happened?
Fourteen weeks […]

BarroMetrics Views: Managing Energy
Until 2010, Brett Steenbarger wrote a great blog. Then he ‘retired’ from the blogging scene until Jan 2014. Since then, he again has been blogging. In his latest piece, he addresses a crucial issue, but oft forgotten issue of the effects fatigue on our bottom line. Well worth a read.

BarroMetrics Views: The Ultimate Reason for Failure II
In my last blog, I raised the reasons neurological research suggest are the causes of failures and the research’s prescription for success.
One hitch has arisen (which is the reason I did not publish Friday). It was pointed out that this topic is the subject of my presentation for […]
BarroMetrics Views: The Ultimate Reason for Failure
The 14-week course (I called it Ultimate) I have been running is coming to an end. As is almost always the case, I have received as much as I have given. In particular, I have had shed some light on the two questions I constantly ask myself:
Why do so […]
BarroMetrics Views: Way to Go!
An Ultimate student sent me this clip.

BarroMetrics Views: Risk Management II
Turning today to Baz’s questions - see latest comment below…
Before I tackle the question, let me first look at what I consider to be the assumptions behind it (Baz please correct me if I am wrong about your assumptions).
Baz is looking for a high win rate. If I were coaching Baz, my […]
BarroMetrics Views: Discipline
Lance Begg (YourTradingCoach) write this gem of a piece on discipline. Lance was kind enough to reproduce for this blog as html fine. I have attached it because it is a long article.
By the way, Brett Steenbarger is again blogging after an absence of our years. See traderfeed.blogspot.com. Brett has some wonderful trading insights […]
BarroMetrics Views: Insight for Trading Decisions
I recently concluded a course based on the works of Gary Klein. His latest book, Seeing What Others Don’t, is a must read for traders.
In the book, Klein develops a Triple Path Model for having insights. In my view, a trader with a knowledge of the more common heuristics, will have a model, […]
