Notable Quotes

"Rule 3: Day traders do not hold positions overnight. If necessary, you must sell with a loss to make sure you do not hold onto any stock overnight." — Andrew Aziz

"If the price is going to go lower, you may correctly ask, why does your broker allow you to short sell instead of selling stock themselves before the price drops? The answer is that your broker prefers to hold their position for the long term. Short selling provides investors who own the stock (with long positions) with the ability to generate extra income by lending their shares to the short sellers. Long-term investors who make their shares available for short selling are not afraid of short-term ups and downs." — Andrew Aziz

"Individual traders, like you and I, are called retail traders. We can be part-time traders, or full-time traders, but we're not working for a firm and we’re not managing other people's money." — Andrew Aziz

"To be a successful trader, you must learn risk management rules and then firmly implement them. You must have a line in the sand that tells you when to get out of the trade. It’s going to be necessary from time to time to admit defeat and say, “I was wrong,” or “The setup isn’t ready yet,” or “I'm getting out of the way.”" — Andrew Aziz

"A key reason why many traders fail is that they take negative events and losses in trading personally. Their confidence and peace of mind is connected to their trading results. When traders do well, they feel good. When they encounter losses, they become discouraged, doubtful, and frustrated, questioning themselves, their strategy and their career. Instead of dealing directly and constructively with their losses, they react to the emotions triggered by their personalizing of the events." — Andrew Aziz
