I received a question  from a new member today after he read the post about Volume and Supply & Demand.

I was so touched with the question I decided to write a post to try and answer his question.

So firstly I would like to welcome Deepak to the club.  Here is his question.


i have read about volume and other tools , which u mentioned above. but fact is that , in share market i can not believe any single tool. bcoz i learnt this course last  year . since then i have been trying and hard working to learn technical course , i checked many tools of it but not useful till now. so sir my request to u that  u may provide  any one techniq or tools by which i can earn some mony . bcoz i lost much money in share market and so on. i m waiting ur rply sir” Deepak.

So what is the single way to make money in the stock market?

Dear Deepak,

I completely understand where you are coming from.  I too have lost a lot of money in the stock market, back in 2000 when I was younger, fresher and more eager to gamble.  I also attended a Stock Market Training Seminar in 2000, it cost me nearly $3000 (actually British Pounds as I am English), and I really thought I was a hot shot.  In the seminar it was only me and 2000 other people.  You can imagine how much the famous trader made out of teaching his skills.

Anyway, I took notes, revised and started to trade,  heavily, every day multiple trades.  I saw big winners, but I also many many losers.  The only thing that stopped me completely wiping out my remaining portfolio was my ability to say “enough is enough” and pull out with the remaining cash I had.

I then took a trajectory of deep knowledge acquisition.  I studied and experimented more intensely with the stock market than with anything else I have ever done, including my degree in business and all my schooling rolled up into one.  After 10 years, hundreds of books, heaven knows how many trades, I finally get it.  To prove it I took the IFTA Technical Analyst exam.  This required some heavy duty reading and deep contemplation before it was all absorbed.  But I passed first time.

I now trade quite well, I like to think.  I can assess the direction of the overall market and really understand what makes the market move like it does.

You asked me for a single strategy so you can start making money.  You asked me for a single tool to use to enable you to recoup your losses.

The single strategy to make money on the stock market.

No matter what the con-men, penny stock newsletter writers or gurus tell you, I can really tell you this.  There is only one way to make money in the “share market / stock market”.  Education!

I believe that the future of the individual is in their hands not mine.  This is why I have written over a number of years the Liberated Stock Trader Academy FREE training course.  It is a great starting point to learn about what matters.  Not just Technical Analysis, but Fundamental Analysis also.

But there are so many things that they never teach you in a Stock Trading seminar.  They like to focus on chart patterns and indicators, like they are the holy grail.  But if you really want to make money in the stock market and understand why and how the market moves the way it does, you need to understand the Fundamentals.  By that I mean:

  • the business climate
  • market cycles
  • economics
  • monetary and fiscal policy
  • the role of the government and central banks in the fate of the stock market

Combining a solid knowledge of the fundamentals of business economics with technical analysis is the key.  Only then can you understand if the business climate is worsening what affect will it have on the stock market.

The single tool to make money in the stock market.

As you are probably aware, I am also a fan of Technical Analysis, the use of charts.  But I am not a purist.  I really understand that the greatest appreciation of a chart only comes in combination with a solid understanding of Fundamentals also.

The single tool is non-existent.

However, there is a combination of tools that works.  Once you have a grasp of why the market moves in a certain direction (Economics and Governments), and an understanding of the way it moves (Cycles & Waves), then you can interpret charts (Technical Analysis) in a whole new way.  Understanding “Supply and Demand” within a given economic climate is critical.

Then we can combine Price, Trends, Volume and the Price Volume relationship to give us something akin to a true visualization of what may happen.  This will put you in the top 5% of stock market investors.

The single tool is the combination of Fundamentals and Technical Analysis.

This probably sounds like a monstrous amount of information.

This is why I created the Liberated Stock Trader PRO Training.  It is absolutely unique.  With 16 hours of intensive video, and a full book to back up the learning experience.  You will have an absolutely solid grasp of everything I have discussed here.

What is also worth noting is that it is selling at less that 1/10th of the cost of a weekend seminar, and at less than a single losing trade.  If you avoid a single losing trading in the market because of my training, you have made a profit.

Why is it so inexpensive?  Because I am using the power of the internet to deliver it.  I do not need to hire seminar venues, print DVD’s, publish a book on paper, or fly to exotic venues.  You simply get a intensive training course direct on your PC, Mac or  iPhone.

After this training course you will understand.  Even if you need to repeat it many times. You can.  I know how it is, I have re-read so many books and experimented so many times before it all sank in.  What I can guarantee is that I only provide you the most important knowledge in my training, so in 16 hours your will have an excellent understanding of everything you will need to know.

So my advice is education.  If not with me with someone else.  But trust me, you will not get better value training than at Liberated Stock Trader.

Deepak, I am completely with you.  Your question reminded me of why I have dedicated years of my life to this cause.

My mission states, “your future in your hands” and “take control of your destiny” for a reason.

I am on your side.  Do not believe the big Wall Street propaganda merchants, do not believe the news, do not follow gurus or penny stocks newsletters.  Believe in yourself.  Take a time out, learn, and then conquer the market.

Thanks you for your question, it reminded me of why I spend so many hours doing what I do.

Chapter 15 – Making the trade – Cash Allocation

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

This is an excerpt from the Liberated Stock Trader Professional Stock Market Training Course, Chapter 15 – Making the Trade – Section 4 – Part 1 – Cash Allocation.

Making the trade – Cash Allocation

We have covered stop losses and elements of risk, we also covered how many stocks to purchase and now we are looking at how to allocate your money to stocks.  Otherwise known as betting styles, cash allocation is important to understand.   There are two approaches, Martingale and Anti-Martingale.  They help us understand cash allocation strategies.

The Martingale Approach

Before I understood the term “Martingale” I had worked out a way to win at roulette.  I thought it was highly original until I learned that any top level trader or professional technical analyst understands this approach.  When I was younger, before I found the stock market, marriage and children, I enjoyed a regular night out at the casino with friends gambling a small amount.  I used to go with $50 dollars in my pocket and utterly refuse to gamble any more money.  This was play money and when it was gone, it was gone.  My strategy paid off quite well when it worked but when it did not work I went bust.

My strategy was to only bet Black or Red, if I won, I won double.  If I bet $2, I won $2 and got my $2 stake back.  If I lost I would double my next bet to $4, so that if I won I would win back my original loss.  The idea was that I could sustain with $5, 5 straight losses before going bankrupt.  But by constantly doubling my stake I only needed one win to come out ahead.

Martingale Betting Style

Martingale Betting Style

Quick Tip: On a losing streak do not double your betting size to recover your losses in the Stock Market.

This I now know is called the “Martingale Betting Strategy” and it certainly is not recommended for the stock market.  When it worked it was good, especially if lady luck was one my side, but if I hit a losing streak I was broke. Sometimes I would come out with my money doubled, but sometimes I came out with nothing.  If you adopt this approach in the stock market you may do well for a period, but all it will take is to go bust once, then you have no money, which means you have to leave the table.  In the example above, after my 5th successive loss, I was one bet away from bankruptcy.

This chapter goes on to discuss in detail:

  • How to track your trades
  • How many stocks to own
  • Timing and Stop Losses
  • Risk reward
  • Setting price targets

If you are looking to really learn how the stock market works, then you need to understand what Technical Analysis is!

Most training courses available focus on Technical Analysis.

What is Technical Analysis?

Technical Analysis is the study of supply and demand in the stock market, by comparing the history of stock price movements and volume (the number of shares traded).  Understanding the way the price moves in relation to the Open, High, Low and Closing Prices on a given minute, hour, day, week or month and comparing that to the volume can give an insight into future market direction.  The data required is usually displayed in a Stock Chart so it is easily consumed.

The science / art of technical analysis usually falls into different areas of study:

  • Supply & Demand – Stock Price Movement vs Volume
  • Trend Following – understanding what trends are
  • Waves & Cycle Analysis – understanding how markets move
  • Stock Charts – Price – plotting price in charts to understand the history of the Stock, Share or Market Index using Bars, Candlesticks or Point and Figure Charting.
  • Trend Interpretation – Drawing Trend Lines – Support and Resistance Lines
  • Price Indicators – the study of price based chart indicators or Oscillators know as Stochastics,”Relative Strength Index” (RSI), “Rate of Change” (ROC), “Moving Averages” (MA), “Moving Average Convergence Divergence” (MACD), Parabolic SAR, ADX Average Direction Movement Index.
  • Study of Volume – understanding how the level of volume has a relationship with price – and how price has a relationship with volume.
  • Study of Price Volume Indicators – “On Balance Volume” (OBV), Chaikins Money Flow, “Time Segmented Volume” (TSV), MoneyStream.
  • Market Sentiment – understanding the madness of crowds Read More→
