As promised, I have split off the Futures trading Discussion into its own Thread in an effort to minimize the level of confusion between Hershey Equities and Hershey Futures Trading. Jack now refers to Equities as PVT and Futures Trading as SCT. However, we do not concern ourselves with SCT at the present time. In fact, SCT remains far removed from the place where we begin our Journey. While we may consider SCT as our destination, The Journey begins with the FTT (Failure To Traverse). What is the FTT? And why is it so important? The following posts provide a brief overview of how the FTT operates. Please review the posts (a few times to make sure you have things straight in your mind) before continuing further. Post One Post Two Post Three If you havenât read any of the previous Hershey Futures Threads, donât worry. You can quickly catch up. In an effort to get yourself âup to speedâ (so to speak), review the end of Journal Two beginning with This Post. However, I do not recommend jumping right into futures with both feet without some degree of trading experience. In order to build a strong foundation of understanding with respect to the Hershey Methodology, I recommend beginning your Journey with Equities. Beginner Level Methods Intermediate Level Methods Advanced Level Methods Although all methods do contain overlap, I feel it is best to start at the beginning, rather than, struggle through the material. No shortcuts exist. Do yourself a favor and build a strong foundation for success by avoiding the temptation to jump ahead. The market will be waiting for you â irrespective of your level of preparedness. As a result, I continue to recommend an abundance of caution â at every level of your trading education. In addition, everyone learns at a different pace. No need to rush. You have plenty of time. Please use it wisely.
