Michael Marcus learned from Ed about cut the losses sort and ride the winners. Michael learned to have patience and wait for the clearly defined position. Staying in the major trend really paid off. Never get out the trade until trend is changed. Trade with the stop loss. Michael learned from floor about intraday chart points like previous day high where he can take take big position with close stop loss. Trading was like a hobby for Micheal. When his conditions met for trade, he used to take 5-6 times of his normal positions. Big money only comes from the trade where his trade criteria met. 37

Trading based on Pivot Points
- First check for the Market trend. If it is down trend then there are less changes to break resistance.
- If market is in up trend, then there are less changes for break support. In most of the cases, market may bounce back from support.
- Another factor to consider at Pivot point is RSI level. In case of over bought situation, market may go down after touching resistance.
- In Bull Market never sell and in bear market never buy.
- If you missed the trend then wait for next signal to enter.
- Do not risk more than predefined price per day, per week and per month.
- Your decision should not be influenced by external factor. Stick to your trading system.
