Cómo crear una estrategia de trading exitosa


Financial Education First of all I want to start
the video by thanking everyone who participated in the survey
of the last video. The winner, by obvious majority,
was this topic about: “How to create a successful
trading strategy?”. And as promised
is a debt… Well, here is the video
that everyone asked for. But before we begin, let’s repeat the
dynamics, open this survey that is here and answer the question: “What is the topic
you want to see in the next video?”. Now, let’s modify this a bit, and if you
want me to talk about something else that is not among the options…
Let me know in the comments. Now, let’s go
to what we came. Many people, especially those who are
just beginning, believe that a good strategy is based on an infallible
input signal. When this occurs,
you have to buy and when this occurs,
you have to sell. And they innocently believe that if they find that
perfect signal, that which is fulfilled 100% of the time, that one when it gives a signal
of purchase, the price goes up. And when it gives a sale signal,
the price goes down… If they find it…
They will become millionaires! They will be profitable
in the long term. They think that’s
all they need! Well, I’m sorry to be a
party pooper, but that’s not true. It is not even remotely close to the truth,
and in this video you will find out why. First of all, you have to get that idea out of
your head that there is a 100% effective signal. That is not true!
And it never will be! All the signals, however good
they may be, are only probabilities with a higher or lower
percentage of success. But none is even
close to 100%. Financial markets do not respond to patterns
as if they were mathematical formulas that you can calculate in an equation,
and that results in a constant. In fact, trade the financial markets
is not a science… It’s an art! And like all the arts, there are as many
styles and results as there are artists. No artist is equal
to another. Two sculptors are not able
to make exactly the same statue, although they use the same
materials and the same tools. Two painters do not get the same picture
even if they use the same brush, the same paintings, and the same
photograph as a reference. You and I can use exactly
the same strategy, with the same rules, and we will not get
the same results… In fact, it is even possible that you win and
I lose, because trading is art is not science. Trading theory is a science,
but execution is an art. Just as studying the theory of music is a science
and playing the instrument is an art. The other myth is to believe that only with the input
signal you already have an investment strategy. Even if your input signal was
100% effective… That’s not enough! Because prices do not move
in one direction forever. If you now open a long trade
at this time, you have to know when you are going to close
because the price will not continue to rise all life. You also need to know how much risk you are
going to assume because the signal can fail and if the price goes down instead
of going up you have to have a limit. Otherwise you will lose all
your money in a single trade. You have to have rules
to adjust that Stop Loss, because even if the signal
goes well and you start to win… Eventually the market
is going to turn around and you must have the ability to protect what
you have already won so as not to lose it. You also have to have well-defined
rules about the size of your trades according to the conditions and
characteristics of the market and the signal. How big you should open the trade and what size
you will make the increases if you make them. Or the partial closings,
if you do them. So, in trading there are
no secret techniques, there are only skills that you have
to develop as in any other profession. Trading is a business, and like in any
business, you need a good plan of action and skills to execute
that plan. The key to becoming a successful trader is very
simple… But do not confuse simple with easy! The strategy has
to match your personality and an investment
strategy to be complete should include position sizes, entries, exits,
Stop Loss rules, Trailing Stop rules, rules for the Breakeven,
and rules for taking profits. Before using it in a real
account with your money you must put it into practice in a demo account
for several weeks, even months… Until you have proven to yourself that
you are profitable in the long term. And the important word
in this process is: “Discipline”. Without discipline
you will not achieve success. You will improve your chances of success and you will
facilitate the process if you trade with the trend. Many traders make the mistake
of hunting for highs and lows, they want to buy just when
the bearish trend is over, buy at the lowest point
to take advantage of the whole rise. They want to sell at the highest
point when the bullish trend is over. And that whim leads them
to trade against the trend, because if the price goes down,
trade with the trend would be to sell… But they are looking
for opportunities to buy, they want to find the point
where the price will turn around… When what they should be doing
is looking for opportunities to sell and continue
the trend. Surf the wave! Maximize
the risk/benefit ratio. Always calculate your chances
of success on the chances of failure. Make all your trades represent
a small margin of possible loss and a great possibility
of profit. The ideal healthy
relationship is from 5 to 1. That is, for every dollar that you risk,
you have the goal of winning $5. Look for liquidity Always trade in the times
when there is greater liquidity. Otherwise you risk being
trapped in a lateral movement that will typically make you close at a loss
because it does not even cover the spread. Identify the most active hours of the market
according to the country where you live and the instrument you trade,
and work within that time window. Never forget your Stop Loss… The most common
mistake of traders who lose their money is that they do not define a maximum level of
loss because when the price goes against them, they let it advance infinitely
with the hope that it will recover. Allow your profits
to grow. The second most common
mistake of traders is that they quickly cut their
profits for fear of losing them… And this leaves them in the most
vulnerable position of all, and it is a negative imbalance
between gains and losses. That is, big losses because they leave them
move forward hoping that they recover and few gains because they close them
quickly so as not to lose them. Reverse that, and you will begin to
improve your level of profitability. Defines and respects a maximum
loss level per transaction, maximum daily loss,
and maximum weekly loss. This means that your trading plan
or investment strategy has to consider a maximum loss per
transaction so that the technical Stop Loss can never be greater
than this number. Then, you must have
a maximum daily loss, that if you reach it you must stop
trading for the rest of the day, and finally a maximum weekly loss, that
if you reach it, you will stop trading for the rest of the week…
Yes, Even if it’s Monday! Do not give in. Losses are great
masters if you learn from them, correct your mistakes
and continue to improve, but if you let
the losses depress you, you will end up giving up trading,
broken and demoralized… With that bitter sense of defeat from which
you will not be able to recover in a long time. Avoid at all costs, trade outside
your risk limits and your comfort zone. Doubt the inputs and
outputs defined in your strategy. If it is time to enter,
enter without hesitation. And if it is time to close, do it no matter
what is happening in your balance. Trade too much Excessive trades or trades
that last too long can complicate
your life. Let your emotions
make the decisions! The trading plan is fulfilled
no matter how you feel emotionally, instincts or hunches
are worthless in the financial
markets. Avenge yourself
from the Market If you lose… You lose! But do not try to recover everything in
the next trade, stick to the plan and fulfill
it to the letter. If you maintain a healthy relationship
between profits and losses, you can recover the money
sooner rather than later. Trade when you do not feel good
or when you can not concentrate. It is one thing to allow emotions
to make decisions about your trades and quite another to get away from
the keyboard if you are sick or distracted. Just do not do trading unless
your five senses are 100%… Because you will
need them! Always remember to educate yourself constantly,
and this includes learning from your own failures. Have adequate capital
to invest. Look at trading as a business,
not as a lottery. Do not try to become rich in
a day or a short period of time. Trade always within the limits
and rules defined in your strategy. Never bet on luck,
even if you feel bored. Reduce your universe of financial
instruments so you can specialize. I will talk about this in great
