Topic: The importance of Rules and Discipline in Trading

In this presentation Gary will discuss the following,

The importance of having rules and sticking to them! We all have some idea of what we want to achieve but most of us do not make a workable and systematic plan, and stick to it.

My personal experience trading Options

My discipline strategy based purely on Technical Indicators.

Understanding how your mind plays havoc on your trading – the 90/10 Rule.


Gary Murphy started life as a tradesman but has always been interested in the Stock Market and World Economies. In 1981 he started an engineering business in Swan Hill, repairing and manufacturing farm machinery, and owned this business for 30 years. During this time he ventured into Organic Farming and developed a Health Food manufacturing business exporting organic produce to 14 countries around the world, as well as supplying major health food brands in Australia. In 2000 he bought my his first parcel of Shares, and in 2010 he sold his two remaining businesses, and retired to Gisborne. In 2012 Gary completed a Course on Options and although he lost money, he still believed in Options. Since then he has attended numerous training seminars and concentrated on learning the idiosyncrasies of trading Options. This has enabled Gary to develop his my own strategies and a strict set of rules and making trading profitable.

As we finish, investors will have with them a very useful takeaway guide to future economic conditions.
