Topic: The Importance of Rules and Discipline in Trading

Gary's background:
Started life as a tradesman but always been interested in the Stock Market and World Economies. Started an Engineering business in Swan Hill in 1981, repairs and manufacturing farm machinery, owned this business for 30 years and also along the way owned a second hand machinery business. During this time I ventured into Organic Farming and developed a Health Food manufacturing business exporting organic produce to 14 countries around the world as well as supplying major health food brands in Australia. I Bought my first bundle of Shares in 2000.  Sold my two remaining businesses in 2010 and retired to Gisborne. In 2012 I did a Course on Options and although I lost money, I still believed in Options. Since then I have attended numerous training seminars and concentrated on learning the idiosyncrasies of trading Options, developing my own strategies and strict set of rules and making trading profitable.
Description of the presentation.

  • The importance of having rules and sticking to them! We all have some idea of what we want to achieve but most of us do not make a workable and systematic plan and stick to it.
  • My personal Options experience
  • My discipline strategy based purely on Technical Indicators.
  • Understanding how your mind plays havoc on your trading – the 90/10 Rule.

Why every investor MUST understand the real estate cycle
Hear Phil explain to you how the future will unfold and what we might expect for stocks and the economy in general, going forward from 2017 and into 2026.

As we finish, investors will have with them a very useful takeaway guide to future economic conditions.
