How Playing Pinball Helped Me Make Massive Money

I used to play a lot of pinball in my wasted youth. But it turns out that playing pinball actually became part of the reason that I became a successful trader!
I read an article about a master pinball player. The guy had won multiple tournaments. He was unbelievable.
He was asked how he did it. What was his secret? How did he play so much better than anyone else?
He explained about how it took 1/4 second for him to see the ball, perceive what the movement of the ball meant, process what he should do based on the movement of the ball, and then transmit that information down through his arms to his fingers.
So he said that he concentrated not on the ball but where the ball would be 1/4 second later.
By concentrating on where the ball would be in the future, he got his brain and body in sync with the reality of the ball whereas everybody else was focusing on where the ball was now and were therefore 1/4 of second behind reality.
This blew my mind.
First, it improved my pinball game tremendously.
More importantly, it changed my life.
I now began to see how I had to live in the future in order to live in the hear and now. Looking at the present was actually living in the past.
This forced me to always be looking down the road. What was coming next?
This lead me to always be planning for what might happen. So I am rarely surprised by the markets because I have already considered the most probably futures.
Once I have planned for possible futures, I then create trading strategies based on those projections. I put in my orders based on those probabilities.
This makes trading calm. No anxiety because we have an idea of the future and our orders are entered. No need to make decisions under pressure.
I’ve put together a new course to teach more about the psychological tricks of the trade for a trader. It’s call The Psychology of Massive Wealth and you learn more here.
Please check it out. I think you will learn a lot and make more money!

How Words Affect Your Trading

Words are powerful. Words are magical.
But the map is not the territory and the menu is not the meal.
Count Alfred Korzybski found the science of semantics back in the 1920’s. Wikipedia says, “Semantics is primarily the linguistic, and also philosophical, study of meaning.”
We use words in our mind when we think of something. We have the word “dog” in our mind when we think of a dog. It is well known that people who speak several languages will dream in one of those languages.
Our concepts of things are affected by the words we use. For example, the fight about abortions are led by people who are Pro-choice and Pro-life. Both sound great! Who is against choice? Who is against life?
So it is important that we use words that are truthful and reflect reality. We, as traders, must be reality based. Deviations from reality can get costly quick!
The more realistic we are the more profit we are likely to make. So the words we use can be of high value in our trading. Let’s take a look.
For example, we might say, after losing some money on a trade, that we got killed. Of course we didn’t get killed. This language makes us dramatize the effect of the loss. We have elevated it to the highest level possible.
What is the effect of that? You become more emotional about losses. They become much more anxious about losses. You flinch when you have them. Actually, you flinch before you put the trade on.  None of this helps you make money and, in fact, it is definitely going to hurt your trading.
So what should you say? How about the exact truth with no value judgement? I lost $1000 in this trade. Very neutral words. A strict recitation of the facts.
By doing this, you will be much calmer about trading and more reality based.
This is one of the key techniques I learned to conquer myself to become a better trader.
I’d like to share this and many more techniques with your. I’ve recently launched a new course called the Psychology of Massive Wealth. You can learn more by clicking here.
I sincerely believe it is the most Important course we have ever produced. I believe it will change your life in all the financial parts of your life. Check it out here.
I’ve priced the course at only $97 because I want everybody to enjoy the benefits of massive wealth. Click here to register.

My Worst Trade

I was really bullish on the US dollar. I had done all my usually homework. Deep fundamental analysis. Sophisticated technical analysis. I had a plan that was dynamite! How could it go wrong?
Famous last words.
I was sitting and staring at the screen waiting for a big news item. Tick tick tick. I stare at the screen waiting for the news to come out so I can count my big big winnings.
Finally! The news flashes across the ticker!
OMG!
It is strongly different from what I expected!
The gaps hundreds of pips in the wrong direction! It leaps over my stop loss so my very tight risk management is blown out of the water.
I call the broker to see if I am out of my position and where I was filled. The price is staggering. The gap is huge. The price I receive seems miles away from the price where I put my stop loss.
My eyes bug out and my stomach drops. I feel sick. I’m having a hard time calculate my loss. My eyes are blurring. My mind is blurring.
Finally, I stop trying to calculate my loss in my head and reach for a calculator. I punch the numbers. I can’t believe how much I’ve lost.
I do it again. Very slowly. The number doesn’t change.
I’ve lost $400,000 in a second.
I make sure that I’m out of my positions. I get up and walk outside.
I walk for several miles to a movie theater and watch a dumb action movie to get my mind off the disaster. But it doesn’t work.
The movie ends and I drudge back to my desk. I shake myself and tell myself that I have to get my act together and get back to what I know how to do, make money trading.
I was devastated but knew that I couldn’t let the devastation affect my trading. I went back to basics. To what I knew works.
I put my head down and focused on trading. The devastation occurred at the beginning of the month and I was back to break even by the end of the month!
My experience may be extreme for most traders because of the amount of the loss. But the emotional reaction is super common. Everybody feels terrible when they lose money trading.
I’ve put together a new course, my best course, called the Psychology of Massive Wealth. I’ll be sharing with you my personal value, ideas, and actions to conquer trading and even your whole life.
Tuition is almost nothing and you can learn more by clicking here.
Please click here now so you can learn more about this powerful course.
