The Summit – What does it take to make a great trader?

The Summit Issue # 6
Glen Larson
I‘ve been thinking about this theme for quite a while now.  It seems to be the question on just about every trader’s mind.  With this thought in mind, I’ve decided to dedicate the next couple of newsletters to the success killing plagues many traders face.

This month’s success killing plague is known as “So many markets, so many opportunities, so little time.”
But first a little news concerning Exchange fees.

That’s what I’d like to cover this month. Is there such a thing as a perfect indicator? And if so. what is it and how do I trade with it?

The Summit – What a month this was

The Summit Issue # 4Vinnce Lombardi’s quote, “quitters never win and winners never quit,” is bad advice. Winners quit all the time. They just quit the right stuff at the right time.

Most people quit, they just don’t quit successfully. That’s what I want to go over with you this month.

Wow! A lot happened this last month here at Genesis. Getting out a new newsletter has taken a lot longer than I expected.

The exciting news for me was that my oldest son Brian got married! If you’re new to Genesis, you may have talked to him in the sales department.

Anyway, with family reunions, family weddings and summer vacations, the Summit just got away from me. I hope you forgive me and I promise to do better next month.

The Summit – Dating and Your Trading

The Summit Issue # 3

Glen LarsonI  was at a forex seminar a couple of weeks ago and noticed a pattern.

Imagine: After weeks of hard work, your account is finally live. You’ve officially been open for trading an entire week or month. And yet you haven’t made any profitable trades.

Not. One. Single. Trade.

Arggh!

Don’t despair — we’ve all been there before. In fact, It’s one of the most common problems people ask me to help solve for them.

The comments I’ve heard, and a good book by Brett Seenbarger, Enhancing Trader Performance, right before this seminar got me to thinking about what makes some traders profitable.

This month’s newsletter is a combination of ideas and experiences that I’ve had over the years and some additional insight from Brett’s book.
