Event description

Description

What moves markets? As we understand, a large number of factors can affect our trades and one of which lays right within us - our fears, that drive us to make decisions. Money, and the thought of making or losing it, has a way of driving an otherwise rational person to perform incredibly irrational behaviours.

More importantly, markets have not been a walk in the park for 2018, whether is it with ongoing trade wars, tightening monetary conditions or US political rancour. It is no wonder why most market sentiment measures have reflected that trepidation that had clouded many investors’ thought processes.

Against such market backdrop, it is important to stay rational as budding opportunities are still present.

Select from our line-up of insightful seminars by industry practitioners - Terence Tan, Wong Kon How and Nabil Mattar as they discuss the outlook of the markets in 2019 and ways you can trade during a period of market slowdown.


Who's it for?

Anyone who is keen to boost their trading knowledge.



Seminar topics:

1. Investor fears on trade war, market watcher fears on interest rates, why?

Speaker: Wong Kon How, Managing Director, Weipedia Pte Ltd

We are going to find out why investors and market watchers are focusing on different macroeconomic and political variables, how they affect the markets you trade and what are some of the ways to trade through these fears.

Highlights:
- Macro economy outlook on trade war and interest rates
- Going into 2019, which markets will be most affected?
- What are some of the variables to keep tab on during market slowdown?
- Will there still be opportunity during such market conditions?


2. Market slowdown? Learn how to manage your risks and trade in both directions!

Speaker: Terence Tan – Managing Director, Terence Trading Academy

We are now starting to see signs of potential changes in long-term trends in many markets. To approach these changes, the first steps are to understand that market movements happen in cycles, and one must be able to be flexible enough to trade in both directions. Once that is identified, the next steps are to put in place a set of risk management procedures and ride the market through those new directions safely.
Find out how to identify the first signs of a potential change in market directions, and how you can employ simple risk management techniques used by professionals in your daily trading. In addition, get a quick update on cryptocurrencies for those who are taking advantage of this new asset class.

Highlights:
- What's new for cryptocurrencies?
- Debunking the myth: Long-term market direction is always up
- Using various types of stops (including Guaranteed Stops) when trading in both directions
- Position Sizing: The seldom talked about technique that almost all professional traders use


3. Are we born to trade?

Speaker: Nabil Mattar, Head of Clients (IG Singapore)

Many traders who are new to the markets come in with misguided expectations which leads to painful lessons. Before we even make our first trade, it is crucial that we understand ourselves first.
What is the optimum mindset to be a successful trader? How do we eliminate bad trading habits and thought processes? Why are we stuck making the same mistakes over and over again?
Let’s deep dive into our own psychology to understand how we think and learn techniques to rewire ourselves to be successful traders.

Highlights:
- Trading psychology: Mindset you need to have to be a successful trader
- How do we eliminate bad trading habits?
- Techniques we should master to be better traders
