Managing your risk is an important part of becoming a successful trader too.  Infobesity This is the concept of hopping from one webinar to another, in permanent-student status because you don’t want to take any accountability for yourself, and you don’t want to apply anything that you have learned. There are literally thousands of strategies available, so you can’t possibly use them all.  Anka says that it’s time to roll up your sleeves, seek a trustworthy educator that speaks to you, and resonates with your style, and then stick to that ONE strategy.  The Current State of the Markets There’s a big debate right now about the state of the markets.  Are they going up? Are they going down?  Well, according to Anka, it all depends on what time frame you are looking at.    Technically speaking, the market is in a difficult spot and will most likely continue to be choppy for the foreseeable future.    Resources & People Mentioned  RealtickTD AmeritradeFREE eBook - The Power of Trading Futures Connect with Anka Metcalfe  Website:    http://tradeoutloud.comYouTube:   Twitter:      https://twitterThe Physician Syndicate: Angel Investing | Venture Capital | Startups | Personal FinanceThe Physician Syndicate Podcast: A podcast for physicians to jump into the startup world.
