Trading Strategy Masterclass: Why You Need One

Trading Strategy Masterclass: Why You Need One


As a rule of thumb, every investor needs a trading strategy or some sort of trading plan before investing in any financial products. In fact, most traders, if not all, have roughly an idea or guide to help them build confidence to trade a financial instrument. By definition, a trading strategy is a fixed plan that is designed to achieve a profitable returns by going long or short in markets. The main reason that a proper researched trading strategy is needed is because it helps investors to achieve his or her portfolio verifiability, measurability, consistency, and objectivity.

However, when it comes to trading, traders often guide themselves using either technical analysis or fundamental analysis to determine their yield and returns in trading. Little did they know that analysis is just an information tool primarily used at the beginning stage instead of the whole process to determine trading profitability. Many traders believe hoarding capital is 'all' he or she needs, which is true to some extent, but without proper defined strategy, most of the capitals are being used or leaked unnecessarily.

Basically, the goal of trading strategy is to help investors to achieve maximum rate of sustainable returns and the cost of trading with strategy is primarily dependent on how one defines risk where without a statistically reliable risk measurement, cash management or portfolio management is impossible to begin with. Trading strategy takes place after information are being pooled from technical and fundamental analysis. These information analysis are often used as an ingredient, while trading strategy is often being compiled in the form of statistics, number crunching, realistic approach and discipline.

After developing a trading strategy, this must be back tested using computer programs. Generally, it is understood that investor will have more confidence when they have strategies to withstand the volatility of the markets. Although back-testing does not guarantee future performance, it gives traders confidence that the strategy has worked in the past. There are various forms of trading strategies in the market but most of the time the intensity of the strategy is determined by the investors' gut. For some investors, this could mean aggressive trading strategy, moderate trading strategy, or defensive trading strategy. Either way, having a trading strategy is better than having none as futures market, unlike stock market, possesses higher risks due to its leverage capability.
