6.30pm: Guest Speaker: Dale Gillham – Founder and Director of Wealth Within Group

TopicSmart Traders Know When to Get Out

During this in depth presentation Dale will discuss,

- Why, when entering a trade, your thinking is different to the way it is when managing and exiting a trade. More importantly, why you need to have the right strategy to manage the decisions you make.

- When is an exit not an exit, but rather a signal to get ready to buy more?

- Why traders often mistakenly think they are trading with a trend.

- Timing your entry and exits to give you a high probability of success.

Anyone can get into a trade – that’s easy, even a monkey can do that! But, managing a trade to the right exit requires a very different level of skill. Rely on a monkey to do that and you could end up with what monkeys make, ‘peanuts’.
