Trading the Plan
Trading the Plan by Robert Deel
A note from Robert Deel:
Trading the Plan is a powerful instrument to help you achieve control over your financial destiny. It equips you with the tools you need to maximize your profits, control your risks, and, perhaps most importantly, develop a money management program that will limit your losses. In the course of reading this remarkable book, you'll grow to regard author Robert Deel as a trusted advisor who gives you tough, straightforward advice and helps you implement the changes you need to make. And, unlike the one-size-fits-all approach of other advisors, Deel shows you how to tailor a strategy that fits your specific needs, goals, and risk tolerance.
Drawing on years of experience as an investment advisor, Deel has packed this book with both detailed practical advice and hard-won wisdom about how trading, investing, and human nature really work. Emphasizing the danger of unchecked losses, he makes the case that a strong money management program is absolutely essential to acquiring and keeping wealth. He examines the many faces of risk and thoroughly explore the key money management questions: How much of total available capital should you risk? How much do you risk in any one trade? How much leverage should you use? And; How can you project losses and preserve your capital?
To help you establish your own money management system, Deel provides a simple but powerful formula - the Direction Discipline Risk Leverage equation - which examines your trading ability and helps you control risks.
In his invaluable 15 Rules of Investology, based on 40 years of trading results by professional and private investors, Deel offers trading and investing guidelines that will spare the reader wealth-draining losses and many sleepless nights. Here is concise, practical information on how to use fundamental and technical analyses to select and screen trades, determine market trends and trading cycles, categorize different types of stocks, and select the computer equipment you need to trade successfully.
In a brilliant summary of all the key features of the trading plan, Deel walks you through the entire trading and investing process from beginning to the end. This Anatomy of a Trade illustrates all the important decision points in an actual trade and offers a hands-on application of the trading plan to a working example.
For all futures, stock, and options traders, Trading the Plan is an essential field guide for acquiring - and keeping - profits.
