BarroMetrics Views: Emotional Blind Spots II
Today, I’ll look at the first question:
“if I have a system that makes money, why won’t that guarantee I become wealthy?”.
My answer is having a robust system is necessary but insufficient to deliver a promise of success.
Trading success is comes from:
Mind x Money x Method
The mind delivers the mindset that […]
BarroMetrices Views: Stats and Trading Plans
Stats in a trading plan are little used by traders. Part of the problem lies in the perceive difficulties in learning the subject; part lies in the processing of data.
The first problem is easily overcome: read ‘Statistics Without Tears‘ by Derek Rowntree. The book was published in 1981 and cost […]
BarroMetrics Views: Risk Management IV
In this blog, I want to consider the elements of a robust trading plan.

We see that from ‘0′, the instrument […]
BarroMetrics Views: Entry Zones II
The second question this week comes from John (pseudonym). John attended the final Habits of Success Seminar I gave in Singapore. He has been struggling with the idea of zones. The Word doc contains the charts he sent me of the FTSE.
In Habits of Success, I taught this analytical process:
Identify the […]

This week I’ll reply to the questions I have received - either to my email or comments here.
ZH raised the questions in the attached doc file. For those who have not read Nature of Trends, I use statistical price and time info as the first filter to position sizing.
You have misunderstood what […]
