In this week’s edition of Trading Simplified, Dave continues his series on “The Wisdom of Jesse Livermore”, starting by discussing the fact that one of Livermore’s blow-ups stemmed from not realizing how the game had changed. Dave also covered many other lessons such as don’t use limit orders (sans a few exceptions), the importance of trading YOUR system/waiting for setups, learning from your mistakes, being open to the markets action vs. trying to figure out a mathematical formula, life influencing trading (and vice versa), where the REAL money is, and much more.
