You prefer to stick with what works and tend to accept advice from people you perceive to be more knowledgable or experienced than you.  You are a bit of a perfectionist and don’t like to make mistakes.  When mistakes are made, you find ways to eliminate them from your behavior or your business process.  Because you don’t like to make mistakes, you prefer cautious and consistent profits over flashy big wins.  If someone gave you a 70% probability of winning a $10,000 prize or a 100% probability of winning $400 prize, you’d choose the $400 and the sure win.

NOTE:  It’s possible to use the same strategy across all three Natural Trading Styles, though each strategy would be implemented in unique ways which are more congruent to the natural trading style.


You bring a rich background of experience to your trading which can support or sabotage your efforts to be consistently profitable. Understanding the statistical probabilities of your Natural Trading Style gives you a basic plan for trading the markets in a consistently profitable and repeatable way. Your Natural Trading Style gives you an expectation about your base winning percentage and suggests strategies and tactics you can employ to improve your results and profits. Because your base winning percentage is based on mathematical probabilities, you can remain confident in your market approach regardless of individual trade outcomes.
In his article, Why Talent Is Over Rated, Geoff Colvin writes, “The best performers set goals that are not about the outcome but rather about the process of reaching the outcome.”  As traders, our goal is profit. Poor traders focus on the outcome of individual trades despite knowing they can’t win every trade nor capture the entire move. Traders who make consistent profits focus instead on the process of trading. They have a trade plan which they carefully follow for every trade. They keep their eyes focused on the expected annual rate of return. And they don’t let the emotions of fear or greed whipsaw them into or out of trades at the exact wrong time.
Developing your skills as a trader, similar to developing your skills in your profession takes time, effort, and a serious commitment to achieving the highest level of success you can so as to achieve the richest returns.  Other areas of learning and focus in our additional Natural Trading Styles: Foundations course are:
