eBook firstly published in May 2013 by Giuseppe Basile, a.k.a. the FibStalker

Abstract: You are interested in trading or experienced but still not part of that elite 5% of consistent traders? You want to be a successful trader regularly extracting profits out of the markets. . . Well, you must start thinking of trading from a different perspective and start doing things differently.

Reshape Beliefs on What Matters. One thing to do is re-focus on trading concepts that truly describe, explain and affect price behavior. Get an opportunity to create the right beliefs and mindset about trading from your current development level. Experienced traders are at a disadvantage. They may need to work more to change their current beliefs. But well-directed efforts can help quickly turning around their trading, when the right tools are used.

News & Hype is not Relevant. Algos Positioning Is. The psychology behind price moves is key and it ismainly driven by emotions. Rationalize market behavior at your own risk (of not not being relevant and usually counter-productive for successful trading). Hype on market news and on its interpretation is misleading. News can and will typically only affect price temporarily and on the lower time frames like 1min, 15min and 4-hour. However very often news will have no effects on price patterns already in place. News typically end up moving price towards the targets of well-formed daily and weekly Algos setups.

Five Key Concepts for a Mind-Shift. In trading, as in life, perception is much more important than facts. And perception remains unchanged for a long time or, when it changes, it changes quickly. Rational interpretation of news and effects, and how price “should” move in consequence has little relevance. The five key concept for trading success will prepare the trader to create the required beliefs and help a mind-shift absolutely necessary (in most cases) to (re)-learn how to trade successfully.

Challenge Yourself & Grow. If you have been (interested in) trading for some time, you will have realized that trading success requires useful and focused beliefs and the right psychology. The concepts presented in this e-book are counter-intuitive and challenge the widespread ‘truths’ of trading. This is probably the reason why it is meaningful to analyze and study them carefully. A deep understanding these key concepts will also help you to identify where the real profit opportunities lie.

What do they say about the ‘Winning With Algos’ course. . .

Heric Huang

We were extremely grateful to get Giuseppe to come in to talk about his expert findings opinions on the modern financial market.

The 6+ hour seminar provided the members of the club a completely different perspective that, in sum, blew everyone’s mind in terms of their previous beliefs about the market.

It indeed has changed the perspectives of many of the students on how the modern markets really operates as opposed to blindly believing what other sources of information that exists out there are saying. It gave us a higher glimpse into the reality of the markets and how not to perform and jump on the bandwagon along with vast majority of losers in the market.

One unique topic that Giuseppe talked about was how Algos work in financial markets and how they compete against each other in different time frames.

Giuseppe is very knowledgeable and was extremely frank about his opinions on the truth. Not only that, he provided the club with valuable information that was not readily available to students and the public.

All in all the presentation was refreshing and offered our members a completely different approach to trading.

An Examination of the Linkages Between Money Management and Trading Goalsby Giuseppe Basile, a.k.a. the FibStalker

This research paper is a summary of my thesis for the Masters of Arts in Finance at National College of Ireland (November 2010). I have also published this work on the SIAT Quaderno, the journal of SIAT, Italian Chapter of IFTA (International Federation of Technical Analysts).

Abstract: Three money management techniques were examined and applied to the profitable “Turtle Soup” trading system.

Trading goals were split in three sub-goals: a) downside protection, b) upside potential and c) an opportunistic outcome.

A uni-variate Monte Carlo simulation method was adopted and a distribution, obtained from trading data generated by the trading system along with the applied money management rules, was calibrated using known goodness-of-fit techniques and tests.

Outcome: The study confirms that good money management techniques are able to modify the results of a profitable trading system and demonstrates that money management techniques can be used to control achievement of trading goals. In particular, different features of money management are able to separately affect the achievement of different sub-goals.
