I see this from traders all the time mainly new traders who aren't experienced. For many, it is these trades that end up being rushed, forced and ultimately being the type of trades they later come to regret and have a to take a big loss, especially when combined with ignorance or disbelief.

It's almost as if they're making up for the lost time between the end of their last trading session and this one. Revenge trading for missed opportunities they weren't even around for and so now they rush trades to feel the excitement of having a trade placed. 

I think, to a certain extent, we are all guilty of doing this from time to time - or at least we would be, but the thing that stops some people from making it a reoccurring theme are the routines, habits and principles that are firmly in place to help instil better trading habits which lead to profitable traders. 

This doesn't just occur in trading either; it's also a factor in other areas of our lives.

How many times have you rushed a decision in your life that you have later come to regret? Situations you would have avoided if you had taken the time to think things over fully. 

Well, it's the same thing for trading.

By setting simple routines, habits or principles for all essential aspects of our trading, we can prepare ourselves mentally and physically, giving us an advantage in critical moments.

Don't Over Complicate It.

As humans, we tend to over-complicate things. But what results if you over-complicate a morning routine? It might work well for a few days and feel great, but it will soon become a chore and be challenging to sustain before eventually being abandoned.

Instead, keep things manageable. Find a few things that nicely slot into your trading routine That can be replicated. Things that don't ultimately take you in a different direction but subtly shift your mind, body and resources towards where they need to be to best prepare yourself for a successful day of learning and observing the markets.

Likewise remember, a good daily routine starts the night before. How you fix yourself for the next day and the time you go to bed will be significant parts of your overall performance.

Of course, if you can keep up the basics, you can add more things overtime to make it even better, and before long it may be something more difficult if that's what's right for you - but it will be in a flexible way to keep you on track with a system that is manageable.

Gold members in our community are getting some serious upgrades with their membership. We are trying to provide gold member with the best package money can buy with more trading tools and scanners.

What's in the Gold VIP Membership?

Being a Gold member means that you will have unlimited lifetime access to our community, which includes signals, our educational library and all our software. Here are some more details about the Gold membership from our A1 Trading Website:

We have chat rooms as well as six top analysts giving their signals every day. Each analysts with a 50-100 pip goal per week in mind. Each trader gives their own insight on the markets and giving status updates on all their trades being winners and losers alike. With our six analysts at work, we have coverage of all market times for there to be 24/7 analysis.

Instead of purchasing each individual piece of software, our Gold membership gives you access to the $900+ worth of software, as well as updates or any additional scanners/bots including the brand new XMR Indicator Package:

Why it's nice to be a gold member

The benefits to being gold is that the benefits keep coming. A common concern from those who want to become gold members say that they don't want to miss out on any new software since they have already purchased gold. But that is not the case; a gold member will always get any updates on older software as well as new releases and will not be charged because of the one-time payment to join Gold. Another way we made it easier to join Gold is by making it $25 off so the original price of $300 is now $275.

We hope that our new deals will be beneficial to you all as we plan to make this community one that is affordable and safe. We believe that analysis, trading tools and signals are very important in learning how to improve your trading to where we can trade and learn together as a community. Hope you guys are doing well and trade safe! To learn more about the Gold membership or other memberships we offer, check out the link below:

Where to purchase your own scanner: https://a1trading.com/xmr-indicator/

Remember the XMR Indicator scanner? This uses the same RSI strategy except with a different look, and is incorporated in the package deal with the XMR Indicator. We thought it would be a good idea to provide another option for traders depending on what scanner they like better. Instead of bars reading -5 to +5, the Arrows Indicator places an arrow or an 'x' on a candle if prices look overbought or oversold.

How it works

This tool uses the same concept as the XMR Indicator by taking the average of five RSIs on the time periods of 4 days, 7 days, 14 days, 28 days and 50 days. However, this scanner will not notify the user if values are between -2 and +2 so it can only capture the more extreme XMR conditions. If the scanner calculates a +3 or -3 on a pair, the Arrows Indicator will place an arrow on that candle shown above. A blue arrow shows that the price is oversold, and a red arrow shows that the price is overbought.

If the scanner calculates a reading of +4 or higher/-4 or lower, it will place a red 'x' on top of the candle. The 'x' shows that prices are extremely overbought or oversold, and that it could be a good chance to long or short a pair.

How to set up

Because the XMR Indicator and Arrows Indicator are a package deal, the process of installing and/or customizing Arrows is the same as XMR, so you can refer to the set up and customization process mentioned in the XMR article here:
https://a1trading.com/2020/07/21/new-trading-scanner-the-xmr-indicator/

How we like to trade with it

Notice how a single arrow does not necessarily show a strong indication to buy or sell. However, a cluster of arrows/'x's usually show up before price shifts the other way. I think a good way to use this indicator is to wait for at least 2 arrows/'x's before it's time to enter.

I've noticed this on other time frames too.

15 min Chart
1H Chart

Overall, this indicator tends to work better on time frames higher than 5 minutes and are most accurate on longer time frames like 4H to 1M since we're looking for extreme mean reversions. Like we said before, not every indicator is perfect, but the XMR package could be a great tool to have if you're unsure on whether or not a pair will continue its trend or reverse. We hope that these tools will be helpful in your trading career, and we are excited to release this product and hear your feedback.

Benzinga just released a full review of our VIP community. Here's a recap of the review:

Overall, Benzinga gave our VIP community 4/5 stars. The author shared "A1 really shines in their ability to bring like-minded traders together to discuss trade ideas and strategies. Their collaborative VIP Discord server includes access to video and PDF trading plan examples and educational materials for traders of all levels" Benzinga recommended our community for young investors seeking conservative investment strategies, beginner forex traders seeking trade and stock portfolio insights, or traders looking for ideas. Read the full review down below.

For the past couple weeks, our team has been working to make the A1 website a go-to platform for traders to get access to information on forex markets and indices. We want our website to be like another finviz or TradingView for members to see our trade ideas, real-time market conditions and important updates. Here's what we added to the site:

If you click on the 'Market Analysis' tab, you'll see general currency pairs as well as our articles posted on the site. But if you hover over the tab, you'll see both a forex dashboard or stock market dashboard tab appear.

The forex dashboard is really cool, thanks to TradingView who provided us with their software widgets. The heat map above shows you how the major pairs are doing throughout the day. For example, EUR/USD is down -0.17% as of that time and AUD/JPY is up 0.32%. If you scroll down, there is also an economic calendar to tell you what to look out for, forecasts, and the actual numbers released in real-time.

Another page on our website covers stocks and indices for traders interested in trading the SPX500, NAS100 or US30.

My favorite addition to the stock dashboard is the technical analysis sentiment meter which tells you how traders feel about the market today or on any time frame. TradingView has really helped us out with their free software and analysis tools that you can also access on their site.

As a signals service and an educational website, we think it's important to make you guys feel we're a home for traders and investors alike as well as a hub for newcomers and all our members. These helpful tools are here for you guys and will hopefully give you more insight on global markets, trade ideas, and what our analysts are looking at. On behalf of the A1 Trading Community, I want to thank you all for making it possible to get to the point we are at now, and we hope to keep growing from here. Expect more updates in the future as we plan on creating a top-tier platform for all traders who want to learn with us in an ever-changing global market.
