This service is designed for traders that are eager to learn, as well as to receive updated analysis from a seasoned trader. The service presents tools and guidance aimed at helping you develop a lifetime of trading skills. This is not an "Alert" service that sends entry / exit alerts. If that is what you're looking for, Trading Equilibrium is not for you.
This service is for those that want to hone a trading process: setup recognition, position sizing, risk management, market dynamics, position management, stop placement, execution, and much more.
This service is for those that don't want to be beholden to a service for every trade. It is for traders that want to gain the independence and confidence to trade their own ideas and plan.
This service is for people that understand you must put in the work to reap the rewards, and we're here to help you work better and more efficiently.
This service is for those that want to ask questions and engage.
This service is for reality-based traders; if you are looking for a get-rich-quick scheme this service is NOT for you. If you want to develop a process that lets you participate in the market for a lifetime, then Trading Equilibrium is your next best investment.
Trading Equilibrium is for doers, not followers.
Is this service for day traders, swing traders, position traders, or investors?
Trading Equilibrium is a service for swing and position traders. No day trading ideas or "buy-and-hold" strategies will be covered. Swing traders aim to compound their accounts by entering multi-day / multi-week trades at favorable risk / reward ratios. Position traders look to do the same with multi-week / multi-month trades. The goal for both is to keep losses small while letting winners run to 3*Risk or more.
Do you post entry, stop, and sell levels?
Premium members will receive trade ideas with suggested entry / stop / partial sell / and potential target levels for each trade. These will also be marked on annotated charts for each idea. However, execution is up to you: "make each trade your own". Each trader has their own risk tolerance and goals. No real-time alerts are sent and you are expected to manage your own money according to your unique plan and tolerances. "Make each trade your own" is the phrase, and practice, that empowers traders to gain independence. Questions regarding tactics, charts, trends, etc are encouraged, but exact executions are up to each individual trader.
How many trade ideas do you post each week?
As a Trading Equilibrium member you will receive between two and three Trade Ideas prior to each day the market is open if the current market environment warrants. Often, however, due to choppy or trend-less conditions, the recommended move is to preserve capital. During those times there may be no trade ideas posted at all. The goal is to teach the trader patience, and the ability to wait for the best setups. Overtrading is quicksand for traders.
Do you suggest stock or option trades?
Trade Ideas will include both equity and option scenarios when applicable. If option spreads are too wide, or volume too low in a specific name, only the equity trade will be suggested. The percentage of equity trades vs. option trades offered on the Premium Twitter feed varies as market dynamics change. The suggested stop on all option trades is $0, meaning the risk is the full premium paid. Options are used as a means of defining risk and leveraging capital. If you are an options day trader, this service is not for you.
Is this service for small or big accounts?
Trading Equilibrium is intended for traders with any size account. Proper position sizing and risk management transcends account size and is heavily emphasized in this service. Expectations must be realistic, regardless of account size.
Is this service for beginners or experienced traders?
Trading Equilibrium can benefit traders of all levels. A certain rudimentary knowledge of trading is necessary, however there are no "stupid" questions.
Beginning traders will benefit from a clearer understanding of market dynamics, position sizing, and risk management.
More experienced traders may enjoy the time-saving delivery of market / sector / industry overview and fresh trading ideas.
Can I use your service while having a full-time job?
Absolutely! One of the beauties of swing / position trading is that there is no need to stare at your screen from 9:30 am until 4:00 pm every trading day. You can employ buy and sell stops, even partial stops, to automate your execution. The "homework" and preparation routine is accomplished outside of market (business) hours. Developing a process / routine is an absolutely essential part of becoming an independent trader, and that is accomplished at night and on the weekends.
Can I ask you questions if I join the service?
Questions are encouraged! A Community Forum is included in your membership in which you can ask short or long form questions. This is an opportunity to discuss in-depth topics with Matt and your fellow traders.
Questions will be answered within 24 hours or faster in most cases. This is not meant to be a "live-chat" forum and no real-time trade executions (alerts) will be given on this forum.
However, learning requires asking questions and you're here to learn!
Can I cancel at any time?
You can cancel at any time!
Even better, you can self-cancel at any time. No need to send an email to anyone that will try and convince you to stay. You can cancel online on the main site. Once you cancel your membership will no longer renew past your current month. Your only risk is your one-month payment. I am convinced you will find more than enough value in 30 days of membership to justify that risk.
