Section 5: Step No.3 - Ammunition & Resources
06:35

Learn the difference between trading stocks and trading a stock derivative.

The biggest difference between the two is:

Stocks are traded on an actual stock exchange like the New York Stock Exchange and a stock derivative is not traded on a stock exchange all but rather traded as what is called “Over The Counter” trading or OTC with your stock broker.

The most popular of all stock derivatives is a financial instrument called “Contracts For Difference” or CFD’s. When buying a CFD you do not actually physically purchase stocks and take ownership of them, but rather you purchase a derivative of that stock which is a contract between you and your stock broker. That contract is linked to a specific stock that trades on the stock exchange and this contract tracks the price movement of that stock. The stock that the contract is linked to and valued at, is also known as the “underlying share price” of the contract.

07:36

We will look at 2 examples by doing a trading using stocks and then doing the same trade using CFD's so we can see the difference between the 2 of financial instruments and how they effect our profits and loses.

Article

CFD's are not available for trading in all countries. Certain countries and governments have not allowed the trading of CFD's due to a number of legalities which are specific to each country. We will look at which options are available to you in your trading.

Learn about the key requirements to consider when selecting a stock brokerage. The most important criteria you should consider and how to open a trading account thereafter.

01:07

Learn about the 1st requirement to consider when selecting a stock brokerage and opening a trading account.

Make sure that you are signing up with a reputable stock broker with a long standing track record. This will ensure that your money is in safe hands and that you don’t experience any problems or major setbacks.

01:47

Learn about the 2nd requirement to consider when selecting a stock brokerage and opening a trading account.

You need to make sure that the Stock Brokerage you are selecting provides you with an variety of services to ensure that your trading experience with them is a good one.

What kind of services does the Stock Brokerage offer?

Do they offer:

  • An Online trading platform
  • Charting software
  • Call centre
  • Help desk
  • Cell phone and tablet app
  • Information and research resources
  • What is the minimum account balance to open an account?

What are the costs of trading with this Stock Brokerage?

What are their:

  • Commissions
  • Monthly Fees
  • Finance Charges
  • Spread Between Buy and Sell Price

The higher these costs are, the more they will eat away at your profits.

01:53

Learn about important costs to consider when selecting a stock brokerage and opening a trading account. Monthly Fees are generally not a major cost compared to some of the other costs, but it is a cost you need you to be aware of.

Some stock brokerages don’t charge a monthly account fee and provide you with a free trading account as long as you are trading frequently enough to warrant having this monthly fee waivered.

04:31

Learn about the 1st Silent Killer of your profits and why it is one of the biggest costs you incur when trading if you are not careful. Brokers will charge you a commission fee every time you trade and these commissions erode away at your profits depending on the size of your trading portfolio.

We will do an example together to illustrate exactly how commissions affect your profits and why it is one of the biggest selection criteria you should use when selecting a brokerage.

10:37

Learn about the 2nd Silent Killer of your profits and how it quietly eats away at your profits. The cost of The Spread is directly linked with the price of a stock and the 2 reasons that cause the price of a stock to move up and down directly affect the cost of The Spread.

The 2 biggest reasons that determine the price of a stock and The Spread are:

  1. How Many Buyers and Sellers there are in Market for the Stock.
  2. The additional cost and premium that our broker adds onto the stock price when they sell it to us.

We are going to explain these 2 points using some very practical illustrations to understand what impact it will have on your trading account.

02:53

Learn about some other costs that should be considered when selecting a stock brokerage. These other costs are as follows:

  • Interest on leveraged instruments
  • Inactivity fee
  • Currency conversion fees
  • Withdrawal and transfer fees
01:26

Learn about the hardware and software setup you require for trading the stock market.

This basic setup is as follows:

  • A computer: Laptop or Desktop PC
  • 1 Monitor
  • Internet Connection
  • Charting software
  • Trading Account
03:05

Learn about the ideal amount of capital required to trade and the minimum you can have when starting out.

If you are just starting out and have never traded before, it is recommend that you start off with anywhere between $2500 - $5000.

Once you have mastered The 5 Step Green GRASS Strategy and you are able to trade with complete confidence, you could begin trading around $10000 or more.

08:12

Section 6: Step No.4 - System
05:07

Build a strong trust and confidence in The MOTRENDTUM Trading System. With no trust and confidence in the trading system, it will ultimately cause you to doubt and second guess what you are doing and that is when you start breaking the rules of your trading.

You build the trust and confidence you need when you begin to physically test and practice the trading system yourself. You will be required to do an exercise at the end of this course that will help you to achieve the level of confidence and trust you need to execute The MOTRENDTUM Trading System without hesitation.

03:26

Learn all about Mechanical Trending Trading and why it is the best approach to use when trading the stock market.

What is Mechanical Trend Trading?

Mechanical means:

“An action done without thought or spontaneity; automatic.”

This directly relates back to The 4 levels of The Traders Evolution that we spoke about in Section 2. In order to be a successful Level 4 trader you need to trade without even thinking.

Trend trading means that you always trade a stock in the same direction as the market is currently trending. If the market is going up, you buy. If the market is going down, you sell. You never trade against the trend of the market.

If you put those to words together “Mechanical Trend” Trading: You now have a trading system that requires no thought when executing and a system that is always traded in the same direction as the market is moving.

04:23

Learn the importance of a trading system and why you should not just flip a coin and guess heads or tails as to whether you should trade a stock or not.

The biggest reason that you use a trading system is because it gives you confidence to enter into the market and execute a trade. A system also gives you a higher probability of one thing happening over another and if you can consistently use that probability to your advantage, then you are able to consistently extract money out of the market.

Learn how to keep trading simple and make money in the process. Right in the beginning of this course I told you that trading stocks in not rocket science and that anyone can do it. This lecture will break trading down into it purest and simplest form.

How to keep your trading Simple:

  • If the market is going up, you buy it.
  • If the market is going down, you sell it.
  • If the market is moving sideways, you ignore it.
14:52

Learn how to read a price chart and interpret all the different information that it reflects. The 3 most popular price charts you get are:

  1. The Candle Chart
  2. The OHLC Bar Chart
  3. The Line Chart

Of the 3 charts, the OHLC bar chart and the candle chart are the most widely used price charts by all traders. We will explain how these different charts work and compare the differences between them.

We will also learn about the different timeframes you can use when you are trading and which timeframe is recommended to trade with.

The 5 most popular timeframes used in trading are Weekly, Daily, 4 Hour, 1 Hour and 5 Minute. The shorter the timeframe, the more volatile and emotional the market becomes. The longer the timeframe, the more stable and less volatile the market becomes.

With The MOTRENDTUM Trading System, you are only going to focus on using the weekly timeframe. This will allow us to not spend every day in front of our computers and will give flexibility in our trading and ensure that we are only trading for only 15 minutes a week.

07:03

Learn how the market cycles through different phases.

The Market always moves in 2 phases and never in just one direction the entire time. Phase 1 is called the extension and is generally the longest phase of the two. Phase 1 is the phase that all professional traders enter the market and capitalize from the long price movement. Phase 2 is known as the pull back and is generally the shortest phase of the two. Phase 2 is when all professional traders exit the market and bank their profits.

Phase 2 is also the reason why a lot of novice traders lose money when trading because they generally enter the market too late and get into a trade when the price is just about to pull back and lose value.

09:26

Learn about Rule No.2 that you promised to never break when trading.

Rule No.2:

Always Trade In The Same Direction As The Trend

Learn what a moving average is and how to use it on your price charts to identify what phase the market is in and in what direction is the market trending. The moving average is the average price of a stock over a certain period of time and is represented on our price chart as a thin line moving together with the actual price of the stock.

You also get many different types of moving averages and the main difference between them is how they are calculated. The only moving average we are going to focus on is an Exponential Moving Average

We will look at 2 different Exponential Moving Averages in this lecture. These are a 20 Exponential Moving Average (20EMA) and a 40 Exponential Moving Average (40EMA). We will compare these 2 EMA’s relative to each other because these 2 EMA’s will tell us in which direction the market is trending. Is the stock price moving up or is it moving down.

  • If the 20EMA is above the 40EMA then the market is moving in an upward direction.
  • If the 20EMA is below the 40EMA then the market is moving in an downward direction.
06:01

Learn how to blend the Market Cycles together with the Moving Averages, in order to correctly time the market and enter our trades in the same direction as the overall market trend.

Rule No.3

Never Enter A Trade Until You Have A Trigger Candle & A Confirmation Candle.

Learn the exact timings behind entering a trade using the 2 Step Entry Method and what requirements need to be in place before entering a trade.

You will now add a 3rd Exponential Moving Average to your price chart. This will be a 10EMA and it will be used in relation to the price of the stock. This 10 EMA and the price will give you the signal as to when you need to enter your trade.

You will be shown how to incorporate all Moving Averages, Market Cycles and Stock Price together and how to execute the 2 Step entry method.

Learn where to position your Stop Loss Level and how to work out the Target Price Level.

We cannot enter a trade before we have worked out how many shares we can buy using the 1% risk management rule. To do this, you are going to add your first indicator to your price chart and this indicator is called Average True Range or ATR. ATR is an indicator that gives you the average range or the average amount that the stock price fluctuates by over a certain period of time.

You will learn how to use ATR and how to work out your Stop Loss Level and Target Price level using the ATR. The key points to remember when working out your Stop Loss Level and Target Price Level with the ATR are:

  • Entry Price – 1 Unit of ATR = Stop Loss Level
  • Entry Price + 1 Unit of ATR = Target Price Level

Learn about Rule No.4 that you promised to never break when trading.

Rule No.4:

Always Exit your Trade If The Candle Closes Below Your Stop Loss Level.

At what point do you exit a trade once the price has hit your stop loss level. What often happens is that the price of a stock will fluctuate and if you have an automatic stop loss in place, the price of the stock will hit your stop loss and exit you out of the trade. Which is then followed by a rally in the share price once you are out of the trade. The problem is that you can’t capitalize on the stock price rally if you have been prematurely stopped out of your trade.

Learn why it is important to rather exit at the end of our timeframe and another reason behind why we only risk 1% per trade.

Learn about Rule No.5 that you promised to never break when trading.

Rule No.5:

Only Scale-In and Scale-Out Of Your Trade When The Candle Closes Above The Target Price Level.

Learn how to take the exact same trade example we did previously and double the amount of profit to maximizing the profits to their full potential. You will learn a technique called “Pyramiding” which is also known as “Scaling In” to a trade. This technique will allow you to add more shares to a winning trade so that you can make more money as the stock price continues to move up. You will add an extra lot of shares every time the stock price closes above your Target Price Level, with a maximum Cap of 3 Share Lots per stock.

Once you have hit your cap of 3 Share Lots, you will now begin to exit your lots of shares one at a time which is known as “Scaling Out” of a trade. You will scale out 1 lot of shares every time the stock price closes above a new Target Price Level and you will continue to do this until you are no longer left with any shares.

Learn about Rule No.6 that you promised to never break when trading.

Rule No.6:

When Your Bishop Is Hit, You Exit All Trades For That Particular Stock.

You will, once again, take the exact same example from Lecture 12 but this time you will apply the scaling in and scaling out technique learnt in Lecture 14 and you are also going to add in “The Bishop” technique to maximize your profits even further.

Learn an updated version of Rule No.3.

The updated version of Rule No. 3 will now include the 1st Entry method which is the 2 Step Entry Method and the 2nd Entry Method which is the Low Test Candle.

Rule No.3 (Revised)

Never Enter The Trade Until You Have A Trigger Candle & A Confirmation Candle OR A Low Test Candle

The 2nd Entry method is known as the Low Test Candle. It gives an early entry signal to enter the market without waiting for a 2nd green candle like we need in the 2 Step Entry Method.

The Low Test Candle Entry Method is made up of exactly the same criteria used for The 2 Step Entry Method except this time, the candle that we enter on has got an the opening and closing price in the upper half of the candle’s range. The color of the candle does not matter. The only thing that matters is that the open and the close of the candle are in the upper half of the candle’s range.

Rule No.7:

Always apply the Entry Filters to all stocks that confirm using the 1st & 2nd Entry Method.

Learn how to skip certain trades that confirm and why we avoid these trades even though they are confirmed using our 1st or 2nd Entry Method.

Certain trades need to be skipped in order to avoid losing trade and increase our probability of a winning trade. Certain trades have a higher probability of going against you after confirmation if they show certain warning signs during their trigger and confirmation stages.

All stocks showing the following warning signs during their trigger and confirmations stages need to be skipped:

Have a Trigger or Confirmation Candle > 10%

Have a Bishop > 40

Section 7: Step No.5 - Self Discipline
19:16

Learn how to rewire your brain and inherit the mindset of a successful trader. A mindset where you realize that you have no control over how the stock market will react and the only thing you have control over is how you react to the market.

In order to do this you need to remove all emotions and thinking from your trading. You need stick to your trading system and follow all the rules of your trading system no matter what. This is where the confidence and trust in your trading system will play a big part. You need to have no distractions when you are trading. For those 15 Minutes a week that you are trading, you need to focus all of your attention on trading and have nothing else that you are doing except trading.

We also need to switch off all the “Noise”. By Noise we mean, all the opinions and all the news that tends to freak us out and make us second guess what we are doing.

Instructor Biography

Vincent Merven, Trader by Profession. Trainer, Coach & Mentor by Heart

Vincent Merven is the Co-Founder and Lead Trader of MOTRENDTUM Capital and the Owner and Founder of The MOTRENDTUM Traders Academy. The Academy provides training, coaching, mentoring and trading insights to traders who are starting out in their trading careers as well as experienced traders.

He has close on 10 Years of experience behind him when it comes to trading and investing the financial markets. He has physically tried and tested a vast amount of trading strategies to truly find out what works and what doesn't work so you don't have to. He has also traded several different financial instruments including Equities, CFD's, Index Futures, Forex, and Commodities.

Vincent is not only passionate about trading and creating financial freedom. He also has a great love for training others; helping them to create consistent profits in their financial portfolios and working towards their financial goals.

Vincent got interested in the financial markets at a very young age and it all started when he caught his first glimpse of a stock ticker tape running across the bottom of a TV screen. He was instantly captivated by all those numbers and was drawn towards figuring out what made all those numbers go up and down. Fast forward a few years he opened his first trading account and began trading stocks. The goal was trying to understand how the financial markets worked and how to make more money in the process. His first year of trading was extremely successful but as with majority of traders the victory and euphoria was short lived. He began trading recklessly and made the mistake of thinking that it was impossible to make a wrong move in the market; which nearly swiped out his entire portfolio. He quickly realized that the get rich quick method was not the answer to successful trading and that it was extremely hard work; often spending many hours a day in front of his computer.

Humbled and humiliated, Vincent picked himself up and went back to basics; trying to search and figure out the answers to a number of questions he had. Questions like: “What does it take to become a successful trader?", “How does someone make consistent profits as a trader?" and most importantly “How does one not spend 8 to 9 Hours a day in front of a computer screen trading?"

Several years later with a change in mindset and a far better understanding around what it takes to be a successful trader, Vincent created what is known as his MOTRENDTUM Trading System. His MOTRENDTUM Trading system returned an 85% profit in 2014 while only trading for 15 minutes a week and has also on average returned about a 50% profit for all previous years. This trading strategy has allowed Vincent to free up his time and focus on the things he really loves doing which is teaching and helping others to reach their financial goals.

Over the years of trial and error Vincent has learnt what works and what doesn't so you get to learn from his mistakes and avoid them by taking his course. Following the simple step by step instructions that he will give you, you too can unlock your financial freedom.

Hope you enjoy this valuable training he is going to share with you and trust you will have an amazing testimony to share after the completion of your course.

Kind Regards.
