5 Steps to becoming a Professional trader that you MUST know!

Step One: Unconscious Incompetence.
This is the first step you take when starting to look into trading. you know that its a good way of making money because you've heard so many things about it and heard of so many millionaires. Unfortunately, just like when you first desire to drive a car you think it will be easy - after all, how hard can it be? Price either moves up or down - what's the big secret to that then - lets get cracking!

Unfortunately, just as when you first take your place in front of a steering wheel you find very quickly that you haven't got the first clue about what you're trying to do. You take lots of trades and lots of risks. When you enter a trade it turns against you so you reverse and it turns again .. and again, and again.

You may have initial success, and that's even worse - cos it tells your brain that this really is simple and you start to risk more money.

You try to turn around your losses by doubling up every time you trade. Sometimes you'll get away with it but more often than not you will come away scathed and bruised You are totally oblivious to your incompetence at trading.

This step can last for a week or two of trading but the market is usually swift and you move on to the next stage.

Step Two - Conscious Incompetence
Step two is where you realise that there is more work involved in trading and that you might actually have to work a few things out. You consciously realise that you are an incompetent trader - you don't have the skills or the insight to turn a regular profit.

You now set about buying systems and e-books galore, read websites based everywhere from USA to the Ukraine. and begin your search for the holy grail. During this time you will be a system nomad - you will flick from method to method day by day and week by week never sticking with one long enough to actually see if it does work. Every time you come upon a new indicator you'll be ecstatic that this is the one that will make all the difference.

You will test out automated systems on Metatrader, you'll play with moving averages, Fibonacci lines, support & resistance, Pivots, Fractals, Divergence, DMI, ADX, and a hundred other things all in the vein hope that your 'magic system' starts today. You'll be a top and bottom picker, trying to find the exact point of reversal with your indicators and you'll find yourself chasing losing trades and even adding to them because you are so sure you are right.

You'll go into the live chat room and see other traders making pips and you want to know why it's not you - you'll ask a million questions, some of which are so dumb that looking back you feel a bit silly. You'll then reach the point where you think all the ones who are calling pips after pips are liars - they cant be making that amount because you've studied and you don't make that, you know as much as they do and they must be lying. But they're in there day after day and their account just grows whilst yours falls.

You will be like a teenager - the traders that make money will freely give you advice but you're stubborn and think that you know best - you take no notice and overtrade your account even though everyone says you are mad to - but you know better. You'll consider following the calls that others make but even then it wont work so you try paying for signals from someone else - they don't work for you either.

You might even approach a 'guru' like Rob Booker or someone on a chat board who promises to make you into a trader(usually for a fee of course). Whether the guru is good or not you wont win because there is no replacement for screen time and you still think you know best.

This step can last ages and ages - in fact in reality talking with other traders as well as personal experience confirms that it can easily last well over a year and more nearer 3 years. This is also the step when you are most likely to give up through sheer frustration.
Around 60% of new traders die out in the first 3 months - they give up and this is good - think about it - if trading was easy we would all be millionaires. another 20% keep going for a year and then in desperation take risks guaranteed to blow their account which of course it does.

What may surprise you is that of the remaining 20% all of them will last around 3 years - and they will think they are safe in the water - but even at 3 years only a further 5-10% will continue and go on to actually make money consistently.

By the way - they are real figures, not just some I have picked out of my head - so when you get to 3 years in the game don't think its plain sailing from there.

I had many people argue with me about these timescales - funny enough none of them have been trading for more that 3 years - if you think you know better then ask on a board for someone who's been trading 5 years and ask them how long it takes to become fully 100% proficient. Sure i guess there will be exceptions to the rule - but i haven't met any yet.

Eventually you do begin to come out of this phase. You've probably committed more time and money than you ever thought you would, lost 2 or 3 loaded accounts and all but given up maybe 3 or 4 times but now its in your blood

One day - I'm a split second moment you will enter stage 3.

Step 3 - The Eureka Moment
Towards the end of stage two you begin to realise that it's not the system that is making the difference. You realise that its actually possible to make money with a simple moving average and nothing else IF you can get your head and money management right You start to read books on the psychology of trading and identify with the characters portrayed in those books and finally comes the eureka moment.

The eureka moment causes a new connection to be made in your brain. You suddenly realise that neither you, nor anyone else can accurately predict what the market will do in the next ten seconds, never mind the next 20 mins.

Because of this revelation you stop taking any notice of what anyone thinks - what this news item will do, and what that event will do to the markets. You become an individual with your own method of trading

You start to work just one system that you mould to your own way of trading, you're starting to get happy and you define your risk threshold.

You start to take every trade that your 'edge' shows has a good probability of winning with. When the trade turns bad you don't get angry or even because you know in your head that as you couldn't possibly predict it it isn't your fault - as soon as you realise that the trade is bad you close it . The next trade or the one after it or the one after that will have higher odds of success because you know your system works.

You stop looking at trading results from a trade-to-trade perspective and start to look at weekly figures knowing that one bad trade does not a poor system make.

You have realised in an instant that the trading game is about one thing - consistency of your 'edge' and your discipline to take all the trades no matter what as you know the probabilities stack in your favour.

You learn about proper money management and leverage - risk of account etc etc - and this time it actually soaks in and you think back to those who advised the same thing a year ago with a smile. You weren't ready then, but you are now. The eureka moment came the moment that you truly accepted that you cannot predict the market.

Step 4 - Conscious Competence
You are making trades whenever your system tells you to. You take losses just as easily as you take wins You now let your winners run to their conclusion fully accepting the risk and knowing that your system makes more money than it looses and when you're on a loser you close it swiftly with little pain to your account

You are now at a point where you break even most of the time - day in day out, you will have weeks where you make 100 pips and weeks where you lose 100 pips - generally you are breaking even and not losing money. You are now conscious of the fact that you are making calls that are generally good and you are getting respect from other traders as you chat the day away. You still have to work at it and think about your trades but as this continues you begin to make more money than you lose consistently.

You'll start the day on a 20 pip win, take a 35 pip loss and have no feelings that you've given those pips back because you know that it will come back again. You will now begin to make consistent pips week in and week out 25 pips one week, 50 the next and so on.
This lasts about 6 months

Step 5 - Unconscious Competence
Now we’re cooking - just like driving a car, every day you get in your seat and trade - you do everything now on an unconscious level. You are running on autopilot. You start to pick the really big trades and getting 200 pips in a day doesn't make you any more excited that getting 1 pips.

You see the newbies in the forum shouting 'go dollar go' as if they are urging on a horse to win in the grand national and you see yourself - but many years ago now.
This is trading utopia - you have mastered your emotions and you are now a trader with a rapidly growing account.

You're a star in the trading chat room and people listen to what you say. You recognise yourself in their questions from about two years ago. You pass on your advice but you know most of it is futile because they're teenagers - some of them will get to where you are - some will do it fast and others will be slower - literally dozens and dozens will never get past stage two, but a few will.

Trading is no longer exciting - in fact it's probably boring you to bits - like everything in life when you get good at it or do it for your job - it gets boring - you're doing your job and that's that.

Finally you grow out of the chat rooms and find a few choice people who you converse with about the markets without being influenced at all.

All the time you are honing your methods to extract the maximum profit from the market without increasing risk. Your method of trading doesn't change - it just gets better - you now have what women call 'intuition'

You can now say with your head held high "I'm a currency trader" but to be honest you don't even bother telling anyone - it's a job like any other.

I hope you've enjoyed reading this journey into a traders mind and that hopefully you've identified with some points in here.

Remember that only 5% will actually make it - but the reason for that isn't ability, its staying power and the ability to change your perceptions and paradigms as new information comes available.

The losers are those who wanted to 'get rich quick' but approached the market and within 6 months put on a pair of blinkers so they couldn't see the obvious - a kind of "this is the way i see it and that's that" scenario - refusing to assimilate new information that changes that perception.

I'm happy to tell you that the reason i started trading was because of the 'get rich quick' mindset. Just that now i see it as 'get rich slow'

If you're thinking about giving up i have one piece of advice for you ....

Ask yourself the question "how many years would you go to college if you knew for a fact that there was a million dollars a year job at the end of it? 

Take care and good trading to you all. – Anonymous

SRS account help you save 2015 tax if you contribute before 31 Dec and what to invest using your SRS saving!

Did you know that you could enjoy some tax advantages in this process? This article takes you through what the Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS) is about, and the tax benefits available if you choose to save for your retirement via this scheme.

What is the SRS?
It is a voluntary savings scheme introduced by the Government to encourage individuals like you to save more for retirement, above what you contribute to the Central Provident Fund (CPF).

Keys Benefits of participating in the SRS

·         Both you and your employer can contribute to your SRS account.
·         Contributions to SRS are eligible for tax relief if you are assessed as a tax resident.
·         You can invest the funds in your SRS account.
·         Investment gains are tax-free before withdrawal.
·         Only 50% of the withdrawals from SRS are taxable at retirement.

Is the SRS suitable for me?
The SRS is intended to help you save for your retirement. If you choose to withdraw your savings earlier than the statutory retirement age, you will have to pay tax on the full withdrawal and a penalty of 5%. Therefore, when considering whether to participate in the SRS, you should review your financial circumstances to ensure that you do not need to draw on your SRS savings until you reach the statutory retirement age.

How much tax savings can I have?

How do I participate in the SRS? 
You can open an SRS account in person at any branch of the Government-appointed SRS operators, as long as you are at least 18 years of age and not an un-discharged bankrupt or of unsound mind. Currently, the three SRS operators are DBS, OCBC and UOB. 

What can I invest my SRS savings in?
The SRS savings in your account can be invested in a variety of financial products, including those offered by financial institutions (product providers) other than your SRS operator. You should note however that the SRS scheme does not guarantee any specific rate of return on your investments. Your actual returns will depend entirely on the investment choices you make. Direct property investments are not allowed and certain life insurance products are subject to restrictions.

Suppose you start contributing when you are 30 years old and save up to the contribution limit of $12,750 each year until you turn 62.

If you achieve a 5% annual rate of return through your investment choices, your savings could grow to $860,000 in your SRS account by the time you turn 62. However, if the performance of your investment is not favourable, you may incur losses.

In comparison, if you had kept your money in a savings account that offers an interest rate of 0.5% per annum, you would have accumulated about $400,000.

When to Contribute?
You and your employer may contribute to SRS at any time of the year and as often as you wish, subject to the maximum SRS contribution for the year. To be eligible for the tax relief, all contributions whether in cash or by cheque deposits must be made or cleared by 31 Dec of the year, or as specified by your SRS operator.

The maximum SRS contribution for a Singaporean/Singapore permanent resident and foreigner are $12,750 and $29,750 respectively in the year 2013.
Resource: Moneysense &

Things you need to do before 31 Dec 2015
Step 1: Check your eligibility
Step 2: Open an SRS account with any local banks DBS, OCBC, or UOB
Step 3: Deposit funds into your SRS account before 31 Dec 2014 to enjoy tax benefits for year 2014
Step 4: Inform us to Link your SRS account with your POEMS trading account 
Step 5: Invest your SRS saving in Dividend stocks, ETFs & Unit Trusts via POEMS trading account (DIY)

Fed Rate Outlook Dominate Recent ETF Activity - China & India

  • Gold held its ranking as the most active or second-most active ETF in the month of November. Prices are holding at five-year lows as stronger-than-expected US economic data spur investors to weigh the prospect of a Federal Reserve interest rate hike next month.
  • China remains in the spotlight, accounting for four of the 10 most active ETFs, as well as one of the best performers in terms of month-to-date total returns. Authorities have recently relaxed some emergency measures imposed during a major equities market rout earlier this year, while the impending entry of the yuan into the IMF’s SDR basket, and the MSCI’s inclusion of 14 US-listed Chinese companies in its indices effective 1 December, will keep investor interest high.
  • Concerns in India also remain elevated. The domestic equity market is headed for its worst monthly performance since August, led by foreign selling, after the defeat of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party in state elections in Bihar raised concerns about his ability to push through policies to boost the economy.
  • In the November 2015 month-to-date, the 10 most active ETFs were iShares MSCI India Index ETF, SPDR® Gold Shares, SPDR® Straits Times Index ETF, db x-trackers FTSE Vietnam UCITS ETF, db x-trackers MSCI Indonesia Index UCITS ETF, Lyxor ETF China Enterprise (HSCEI), db x-trackers FTSE China 50 UCITS ETF (DR), db x-trackers MSCI China Index UCITS ETF (DR), iShares JP Morgan USD Asia Credit Bond Index ETF and db x-trackers CSI 300 UCITS ETF.
Gold remains the most active or second-most active ETF in the month of November. Prices are holding at five-year lows as stronger-than-expected US economic data spur investors to weigh the prospect of a Federal Reserve interest rate hike next month. Demand for gold as a store of value diminishes in a rising interest-rate environment.

While business equipment orders in the US rose more than anticipated in October, and jobless claims fell to their lowest in a month, fourth-quarter GDP growth may still come in slightly weaker than some economists expect. Over the next week, markets are likely to focus on manufacturing data due 1 December, initial jobless claims on 3 December, and non-farm payrolls a day later, for clues on the outcome of Fed meeting on 16 December.

Futures markets now indicate a 72% chance of the US central bank raising rates at its December meeting, up from a 50% probability at the end of October, according to data tracked by Bloomberg.
Meanwhile, key emerging markets – China and India – continue to dominate ETF activity.

China stocks reversed a two-day gain, after investor optimism over the government’s easing of some trading restrictions faded, and doubts over the sustainability of the market’s rebound took centre stage. Authorities this month relaxed some emergency measures imposed during a rout that wiped out US$5 trillion from the equities market earlier this year, including resuming initial public offerings and scrapping a rule requiring brokers to hold daily net-long positions.

The impending entry of the Chinese yuan into the International Monetary Fund’s (IMF) Special Drawing Rights (SDR) basket will also keep the country in the limelight, while the government continues to fine-tune monetary policy to shore up economic growth that remains muted, despite six interest rate cuts in a year.
Also adding to interest in Chinese equities is MSCI’s inclusion of 14 US-listed Chinese companies into its indices effective 1 December, mostly from the new economy sector.

Over in India, the domestic equity market is set for its worst monthly performance since August, led by foreign selling. Political opposition to Modi escalated after his Bharatiya Janata Party lost state elections in Bihar earlier this month, raising concerns over his ability to push through reforms to boost the economy.
Nonetheless, Indian stocks rebounded today – their first advance this week – on hopes Modi may be able to get the crucial goods-and-services tax bill passed in the parliament session starting Thursday. The GST bill became a key marker for progress after it was repeatedly blocked by opponents.

The other most active ETFs in the past week also include stock indices that track the developing markets of Southeast Asia, in particular, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Singapore’s 10 most active Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) in the November 2015 month-to-date were iShares MSCI India Index ETF, SPDR® Gold Shares, SPDR® Straits Times Index ETF, db x-trackers FTSE Vietnam UCITS ETF, db x-trackers MSCI Indonesia Index UCITS ETF, Lyxor ETF China Enterprise (HSCEI), db x-trackers FTSE China 50 UCITS ETF (DR), db x-trackers MSCI China Index UCITS ETF (DR), iShares J.P. Morgan USD Asia Credit Bond Index ETF and db x-trackers CSI 300 UCITS ETF.

In the month thus far, these 10 most active ETFs averaged a 1.5% decline in total return, taking the one-year and three-year total returns to negative 6.1% and 5.6% respectively. The three best performers in terms of month-to-date total returns were db x-trackers CSI 300 UCITS ETF, db x-trackers MSCI Indonesia Index UCITS ETF and iShares J.P. Morgan USD Asia Credit Bond Index ETF.

The above-mentioned ETFs saw a combined turnover of S$99.7 million in the month thus far, which brought the total 12-month turnover to S$2.0 billion.

The three most active ETFs over the first 19 sessions of November were iShares MSCI India Index ETF, SPDR® Gold Shares and SPDR® Straits Times Index ETF.

The 10 most active ETFs in the November 2015 month-to-date are detailed below and sorted by MTD turnover

ETFs are investment funds listed and traded intraday on a stock exchange. The majority aim to track the performance of an index and provide access to a wide variety of markets and asset classes, including local stocks, international securities, bonds, commodities or money markets.
Each ETF gives investors access to the performance of the asset that comprises the underlying index. Investing in the ETF is also less costly if one was to build a similar portfolio by buying the individual stocks. It also provides exposure to international markets and asset classes that may be inaccessible to individual investors.
