Trading Psychology: Avoid The Prediction Trap

Trading Psychology: Avoid The Prediction Trap

When I sit down to write for TraderPlanet, I typically mull over things that have occurred the same day in my coaching practice. It seems the fresher the experience, the more easily it can be milked for a few drops of insight. Tonight I had the pleasure of working with an aspiring futures trader, a corporate pilot by day who has dreams of retiring from flying and leveraging his navigational...

Trading Psychology: Men, We Need To Talk

Trading Psychology: Men, We Need To Talk

About a month ago I got a call from a guy, fairly new to e-mini trading, who had just taken a 4-figure loss in one day. The set-back shocked him, but he was still up 30% in his account and after talking to me he felt better. Frankly, I was impressed by his results because his method was very simple (one moving average) and yet he was doing quite well in a difficult market. Some people really...

Why Is The US Dollar In The Doldrums?

Why Is The US Dollar In The Doldrums?

“Ask Kase” and your question may be chosen as the subject of a future column (askkase@kaseco.com). On Tuesday pundits were aflutter because the dollar had an up day, pointing to expectations that the Fed would soon clarify its intentions to raise rates. Technically, Tuesday was a “star” with a very small range, and inside bar which closed well below Monday’s open. It was indicative, at most,...

How Traders Can Survive In Today's Techno World

How Traders Can Survive In Today's Techno World

Information and the inherent volatility of the markets has been a staple of the industry for centuries.  The major shift within capital markets is the speed of information delivery and the unpredictable nature of the market reaction to the underlying knowledge of the subject matter.  No longer can a trader or investor rely upon the notion that information is disseminated orderly and...

How To Win At Trading: Think Less, Win More

How To Win At Trading: Think Less, Win More

I teach trading in order to learn it better. Often, the most valuable insights about how the markets work, and how to best work with them, seem to reflect the principles of sports psychology. I’m not a sports psychologist, however, but I am a competitive tennis player, so I live sports psychology on the weekends. At team practice on Monday night only 4 of us showed up, so we had a...

The Almighty Dollar: Bulls Are Chomping At Bit

The Almighty Dollar: Bulls Are Chomping At Bit

On this week last year, the US Dollar Index kicked off a rally that gained 25% in 8 short months.  Since the peak at just over 100 in March of this year, the Dollar Index has been in a consolidation and oscillating in the mid-90’s.  But that could be getting ready to change. The push higher into July tested the primary zone of resistance at 97.18 – 98.56.  The pullback found eager buyers at...

Eat Like a Lion, Not a Horse in Times of Perceived Crisis

Eat Like a Lion, Not a Horse in Times of Perceived Crisis

A few weeks ago, I wrote a well-received piece on Trader Planet titled ‘Will a Greek Exit Trigger Another European Crisis?’   I went on to explain why it wouldn’t and it was likely nothing but a short-term temporary panic in which we as investors and traders should take advantage of.   Although I feel for the people of Greece who are suffering the most from the inability of their government...

For Phase I of Markets re-design, we are introducing simple OHLC bar charts with a volume histogram.

To adjust the period and scale of the chart, use the "slider" bar which appears underneath the Volume histogram frame. If the slider frame is not appearing, you may need to adjust the 'Zoom' view of your internet browser or adjust your screen resolution to a lower resolution.

By dragging the start and end arrows of the slider bar to the left and right, you can easily adjust the date range.

Features planned for Phase II will include a selection of chart types and a technical indicator library with the ability to define a custom date range for the chart data.
