Re: Need Help Executing An Order, Trader 101

The Ken Roberts course has some very dangerous trading tactics. The whole inverse pyramid trading for instance, cost me in the mid 30k when I was using his course back in the mid 90s. I had corn contract pyramided to the high heavens. Then a relatively small pull back took the entire stack down in about 20 minutes.

If I knew then, what I know now, the impending doom was obvious. After that I went and took trading courses at the Merc, and the CBOT following many years of paper trading while I tried to re fund my account.

I actually ended up with a pretty good system, which I wrote a course manual on. You can find info on it at www.factstrading.com It has a whole section devoted to dangerous practices to avoid.
