Here are Top Ten Trading Highlights with Patrick Walker

  1. Simplicity: when price is above 50 day moving average its good and worse below the 50 day moving average.
  2. Position sizing and diversification is key.  Don’t overthink it.  And never argue with price.
  3. Nobody knows the future. “When we accept the fact we do not know the future, we can see the future more clearly.”
  4. Turn off the Noise. Focus on two types of stocks. If you focus on a stock that has had great earnings and/or great sales in its categories (top 40 groups) you can make money.
  5. Study past winners. He learned from the market wizards, O’Neil, Ed Seykota, and that’s what helped him create a process that worked for him.
  6. Think of the 5 W’s for survival (Who, what, where, when and why) and apply this to your trading. If this, then that…
  7. Don’t make idols of this. Take care of yourself.  The hand you have, look at it, this is the hand you will be buried with.  Puts things into perspective.
  8. Run your Race. Don’t compare yourself with others.
  9. Focus on clean and simple price patterns that everyone can see. Remember that chart patters repeat themselves because based on human emotions such as fear, greed, complacency.
  10. “Only the Still Pool reflects the stars.” When you get rattled or don’t feel at your best, step away to help limit losses.  If you don’t feel good, sell a little into strength, put in your stops ad go lie down.  This isn’t life or death, but some people make it so.  Control stress and risk.  If force it, it’s a mess.
