A capitalist needs a trading plan to know when and how to act in the capital markets. A trading plan needs to be thoroughly designed to fit the capitalist's personality, psychology and risk affinity. By studying topics like economics, finance, trading and by trial and error. I gained insight in what kind of trading that fits my personality and is profitable for me personally.
A trading plan is composed of two components. A trading method which describes the general style of trading and a trading system which describes the detailed rules for when and how to enter and exit a trade.
My trading method
- OMXS30 stock index trader
I only trade the domestic Swedish OMXS30 large cap stock index. It is the most analyzed and the most domestically traded stock index.
- Trend following trader
I only react to price movements, I want to be invested in a objectively proven favorable trend until the trend is objectively proven to be over.
- Long only trader
I only trade based on the speculation that prices will be higher in the future.
