Tackle Today: True learning requires application, not just study

June 30, 2020

Are you building trades regularly?

This week at Tackle Trading we are going to focus on 3 specific areas you need to build a plan of action for. 

  1. Education
  2. Application
  3. Community

Today’s topic is application.  Once you learn how to execute a trading strategy, you need to apply that education in your trading account to truly absorb the content and make sure you know what you are doing.  If you have taken the STEP System course, for example, you have learned how to build your rules to place Stop Losses, Targets, Entry Triggers and Position Sizing.  Once you have your rules, you can then use trading candidates to build trading plans and execute those trades with. 

A great resource to find trading candidates are the weekend scouting reports. Within the Stock Report and Options Report are a list of qualified candidates to build trades on if the price action confirms and your entry point confirms.  If you are a new trader, in paper trading, you can use these lists to build your trades with.  If you are a veteran, and trading live, you can do the same thing.  Are you taking the watch lists and using them each week?

You must apply what you are learning.  Practicing is critical for your growth.  You cannot simply take a course; you must use the information to truly build the skills you need.  No matter whether you are live trading, paper trading, backtesting or all the above, you should be entering trades regularly to keep your skills sharp and continue to run your daily routine.

Challenge of the day: Enter one new paper trade within your rules each day. 

If you have already built your rules, fantastic!  If you still need to develop them, you should start or review the STEP System course immediately.  If you do not have access yet, it is being offered at a 50% discount until July 8th as a part of our Independence Day Sale. 

To gain true Freedom in your trading, you need to build your skills.  Make sure you are applying what you learn on a day to day basis, it is a vital part of the process.

Programming note, we will be holding a special webinar this Wednesday night on our YouTube channel where Coach Matt Justice will be teaching.  He is the architect of the STEP System course, the CEO of Tackle Trading, and you will not want to miss this one.
