Justine Pollard is a technical trader who has developed her own personal systems to trade through all market conditions. Having traded the markets for nearly three decades, she has been through both bull and bear markets experiencing key events such as the World Trade Centre crash, the GFC and now the COVID-19 pandemic.

This presentation will explain how her trading experience set her up to handle the dramatic volatility created during the COVID-19 downturn by taking advantage of short selling opportunities and how she rebuilt her long-term portfolio after the majority of her exits were hit in late February.

Justine has presented at ATAA meetings and conferences and one of her most popular presentations, Adventures of a Trader, is available in the Contribution Library on the ATAA website.

The markets are unpredictable, and anything can happen anytime. There are periods when the markets are more volatile than other times, such as during reporting season which can be planned for, but not all market events can be planned for. As a trader you need to have a market exposure strategy in your trading plan that will provide you with guidance around how you will trade during different market trends and periods of volatility.

In this presentation Justine will share with you her market exposure guidelines and how she handles different market situations. It takes time to build experience in the market and it's not until you have traded through all the market trends that you can be confident in your strategy. Your plan will evolve as you grow as a trader and experience all the possibilities that can be thrown at you in the markets.

Justine is a technical trader that has developed her own personal trading systems to trade through all market conditions.  She has been trading the markets now for nearly three decades and has been through many bull and bear markets over this time and experienced key historical market events, such as the World Trade Centre Crash, GFC and now the pandemic.

Justine is a technical trader that has been using MetaStock since 1999. She has developed her own personal trading systems that she uses to scan the market and manage her exits with a trailing stop loss indicator. MetaStock created an expert advisor based around her Smart Weekly Long Trading System and you will see this in the Expert Advisor list labelled as “ Pollard-Smart Weekly Long System”.

Justine has a non complicated approach to trading and believes in keeping it simple. In this presentation  will showcase how she uses MetaStock in her everyday trading and what her favourite features of the program are.

In this webinar presentation Justine will showcase exactly what she does during her trading time each day.  Including how she runs a daily market scan, reviews the shares in the report and selects a trade based on her trading rules. Then, she will show how she position sizes the trade according to her risk strategy and places the trade in the market with a stop loss linked to it.  She will also tackle other trading actions she takes, whether acting on an aggressive exit or adjusting her stop losses each day.  All in a day of a trader plus more adventures.

Certain market trends are much easier to trade than others. The long-term consolidation phase of the Australian stock market through 2010 and 2011 has posed many challenges to traders. Justine will show you how to analyse the current market trends through technical analysis and the need to develop a market exposure strategy in your trading plan based on the different market conditions. Justine will also provide an overview of the changes she has made to her trading plan in this environment and other trading strategies you can consider.
