Doing Your Homework

Limit Up!

Share:
Trading isn’t just about making money moves. Research is an essential part of the process. Jack and Dan talk about doing your due diligence before a trade, how research gives you an edge, and the importance of learning the quirks of specific markets. They also discuss the pros and cons of different news and research sources and why charts should be the first and last stop when doing analysis. To end the episode, Jack and Dan take a moment to look back on the 2010 Flash Crash. Limit Up! is a podcast brought to you by https://www.topstep.com/?utm_source=limitup_podcast&utm_medium=cta&utm_campaign=ongoing_limitup_to_tst&utm_content=limitup_podcast (Topstep) about trading, trading psychology, trading life, and pretty much whatever else the wonderful world of markets has to offer. It’s hosted by two former professional traders, Jack and Dan, who still dabble in futures, forex, options, political betting—they basically love to follow the action. They’ll teach you how to trade, but more importantly, how to develop the habits that make traders good.
