Adrian here from Enlightened Stock Trading. And did you realize that if you could just hang around in the market and stay profitable for long enough, amazing, unexpected, awesome things can happen? So right now we’re on the last night of our 10 week RV adventure around the west coast of the US, focused mainly on national parks. And this is the last night. Tomorrow morning we have to drop the RV back and we’ve got to be there early and we chose the RV park that was closest to the place where we have to return the vehicle to. And it’s a big vehicle, there’s a lot of traffic. Right now is the 4th of July, if you can believe it, in the US so everyone’s happy and excited to celebrate. Looking forward to fireworks and all that sort of thing tonight, which is very cool. But here’s the even cooler thing.
We’ve survived 10 weeks of this RV journey and the very last night we happen to be in the most awesome RV park in the universe. So this here is our view. You can see here the van behind me, the kids are there. This is Malibu Beach, so we’re parked right opposite Malibu Beach up the hill just a little bit. We have an unobstructed view up and down the beach for the fireworks tonight for 4th of July. So super pumped and excited about that. Now this sort of thing happens in life but also in the market. But in order for you to get this sort of unexpected surprise, unexpected bonus or unusually great outcome in your trading, what do you have to do? Well, there’s a couple of things that you need to do to position yourself to benefit from the really outsized positive moves in the market.
The first thing that you need is a trading system that allows you to catch them. Now the best way to catch the real mega moves, the big shifts in the market, is to have a trend following system. A system that will get you into something that’s moving up and keep you in that move the whole way through. All the way through the primary trend because the biggest profits always come from the biggest moves and you only catch the biggest moves if you have a good trend following system. So the first thing you need is a good trend following system.
The second thing you need is the confidence to follow that system and how do you get the confidence? You get the confidence to follow your trend-following system by back testing it thoroughly, using the techniques that I talk about in the Trader Success System. Following the methods in the Expert’s Guide to Back Testing, which is one of Enlightened Stock Trading, one of my primary courses. So you need the confidence to follow that system.
The third thing you need to do, which is something that probably a lot of traders don’t do enough of and don’t realize the power of, is massive diversification. It’s really tempting in trading to go big on individual trades, trying to make money out of each individual trade. But the trouble with that is if you take a big position size on each individual trade, you can’t fit that many trades in your portfolio and so you’re not diversified broadly. And if you’re not diversified broadly, what’s the problem with that? The problem is your odds of capturing an outsize move, capturing one of those mega trends in a stock, is dramatically reduced. If you hold 10 stocks in your portfolio, you’ve got half the chance of catching one of those dramatic big moves as you do if you’ve got 20 stocks in your portfolio. And the thing is, okay, if you’ve got 20 stocks in your portfolio, sure your position size would be smaller, but you’ll actually have a greater chance of catching one or more of those big moves. So you might start on a smaller base, but the big move will compensate for it.
And so in trend-following particularly, I’m a huge advocate of trading quite small positions, sizes, so you can spread yourself across many positions and allow yourself to capture those moves, those big outsize positive surprises if you like, or the huge mega trends that happen on the upside in the stock market every now and then. You can’t get them, or you have a very low probability of getting them, if your portfolio is too concentrated. So you need a trend following system. You need to have back tested that system thoroughly and built confidence in it so you can keep following it.
And you need to diversify very broadly. Hold mini stocks in your portfolio, in your trend-following portfolio, so that you’ve got a greater chance of capturing those moves. So that’s what you need to successfully capture those big outsize moves in the market. And they do happen. And when they do, they’re life changing. This view is just amazing. And tonight when the fireworks go off all up and down the beach here, it’s going to be a lifelong memory. And when you capture one of those big outsize moves, it also has a lifetime impact on your life. I’ve had trades that go from single digits like $5, $7 a share to over $100 a share. And when you catch a move like that and you ride it the whole way, it’s truly life changing.
You can magnify your whole account many times over just from a single stock. I’ve had one trade that made enough money to almost pay off an entire house mortgage, if you can believe it, because it was positioned to capture some of these big outsize moves.
