FAQ

This page was set up in mid February 2017.  It is currently “work in progress”.

Q: I am interested in learning how to trade.  How do I go about it?

A: Start out with reading all posts tagged as Financial Markets 101.  Also read my interview on Trade2Win, particularly my final tips of advice on page3.

Q: There are lots of references to R in the blog posts.  What does this refer to?

A: Look at blog posts tagged as Risk & Money Management.  Those posts vary in assumed level of reader’s existing knowledge.  Very simple speaking, ‘R’ refers to one unit of risk.  Generally speaking, a trader risks one unit of risk per trade.  Thus it is possible to compare performances of traders different position sizes and risk-reward targets, just by comparing their performance in units of R.  Not sure whether that helps, or confuses things further!
