Reply from Ken: +1. ^ this. Great answer — thanks, Linda. And you bring up a good point; which is, we trade to make money as the main goal. Having an intense focus on the “money getting” part of trading as the goal, using what I call the “P&L indicator” is the most important part of learning how to actually trade. My dollars up vs down in a trade is the single most important indicator. Problem for a lot of traders is, they focus too much on chart pattern s/r levels and not enough on $+ vs $- P&Ls. “It’s all about the money”. Always will be. Thanks – see you in the session.

“Looking forward to it’ the last one on gaps was great” – Ron R.
Reply from Ken: Nice to know it was useful, Ron – thanks. My “How to Trade Gaps” series was one of my more popular ones; I think because a lot of traders have been taught incorrectly to fade the gaps, instead of learning the specific patterns for trading gap continuation plays. Welcome to Trading the Open. By the way I will be offering the gap series again later this year, with updated new strategies.
“Ken is always coming up with good ideas” – Jeff E.

I learned how to use the time&sales window to anticipate price exhaustion. These lessons have served me well and I’m looking forward to see the refinements and new methodologies you’ve developed.” – Alex M.
Reply from Ken: Hi Alex, welcome back! I’m glad to see longtime loyal traders like yourself who’ve found value in what I’ve trained from years ago, returning once again. There’s lots of new strategies to cover in today’s markets, with updated entry & exit signals to use, and more… good to see you again.

Reply from Ken: Hi Mike, of course. My training is always priced reasonably. And because there’s no monthly fees, this is more trader-friendly “a la carte” type model, with very reasonable pricing (under a few hundred for most multi-day training sessions), to overdeliver on value and quality.
“Thank you for this opportunity to get in touch with your trading approach” – Alvaro E.
“Another great oppourtunity to learn from Ken. Looking forward to it.” – Christopher E.

” I have watched webinars from other “experts”, but the only one I have seen which seemed both honest and experienced was yours. I look forward to participating. Thanks for taking the time.” – Bernard S.
Reply from Ken: Hi Bernard, Thank You! Comments like yours are what ‘makes my day’ as a trader, and trainer of traders. My role model is my colleague Brian Tracy, who is the world’s best teacher, in my opinion. His authenticity, integrity, competency and professionalism is who I admire most, so I model my training business after what I’ve learned from Brian, for “doing it right”. Brian was kind enough to do two interviews with me, I highly recommend all of his training as well, for personal success. And you’re welcome, I’m glad to make the time to help traders see what I’ve learned.
“Ken your energy is great. I like your quick responses to the live market through right preparation. You cut through the noise and laser focus us on just what we need to be sucessful in the Markets. Thanks for your example” – Nick C.
“everything goes so fast in daytrading more you knows better you can do” – Francois C.
Reply from Ken: Hi Francois, that’s how I used to day trade as well, back in the late 1990s, during the NASDAQ bubble. Edge of the chair, finger on mouse button, very quickly scanning — and missing many great trade setups. Over the years I’ve found it’s much more relaxed to day trade if you do most of your work on setting alerts well ahead of the market open (I will use buy-stop orders in my IB and Fidelity accounts, for example).
This makes it a) less stressful and b) easier to get in on breakouts without being in a “scramble during the open” mode. It’s a big strategic shift; setting alerts starting 8:30, so by the time the opening bell rings, you’re alread 80%+ prepared for the open. Agree with you about knowing as much as you can, so follow premarket futures and gap plays before the 9:30am open. Although I don’t trade live in the room, I show the patterns as they unfold.
” I look foward to learning how to spot the best stocks within the 1st hour of trading where most of the day’s money is made.” – Marc P.
“Ken, I think this is a great opportunity to see how a professional trader like you handle the open. Look forward to join the webinar.” – Iwan
“I wonder if there is a formula for making money at the open–or is it all art?” – Bill W.
Reply from Ken: Hi Bill, it’s all science, all numbers, metrics, and most of all, PROCESS. A step by step series of patterns and signals to check. See this day trading flowchart (this one is for stocks, updated from my original 2001 one I created; it’s been downloaded many times), for an example of the thought process that I like to use. It’s a series of small decisions you make each morning for trading. Good question.
“Looking forward to capitalize on the hoops at opening, over-corrections.” – Elias
“I haven’t been active at the open because of all the confusion. I look forward to your insight on how to view it.” – Mike H.
” I am a beginner in trading , but understand that chances for profiting is highest at the open.But I don’t know any method to trade the open. Hope this program will help me in this respect..” – Gopalan N.
” I’ve read an endless number of books and articles about trading the open. But nearly every day it’s different. Sometimes stop running is going on first, sometimes a “normal book-like behaviour”, sometimes a run up or down without pullbacks and so on. Some times different time frames help, some times not at all…” – Juergen H.
Reply from Ken: Hi Juergen – thanks; one of the main points is that a lot of people who write books and try and teach about trading the open hour aren’t even real traders, so they publish wrong information. There’s dozens of potentially lucrative patterns for day and swing trading during the opening hour. The key is to learn the right way to trade the open. I personally avoid the first 5-8 minutes, and trade within the 8-10 minute runs that occur 9:40-9:50, 9:50-10am, 10am-10:10 and so on. For swing trading, there’s specific technical filters to use that simplify the open range entries.
“More good information coming up! Please keep these Webinars coming.” – Charles E.
“Ken, I’m looking forward to learning how to read the open better. To predict if the morning surge will keep going. When to jump in but especially when it’s time to get out of that day or swing position. I always seem to set my stop outs at the pivot point and watch the stock recover without me especially in the first 30-45 minutes.” – Scott T.
“Kens webinars are informative and instructive in a practical useable fashion.” – Frank P.
“It’ll be beneficial to see what you’re looking for in the market at the open. The first hour seems to go too quickly” – Dave H.

Reply from Ken: Hi Peter, you’re very welcome; glad to hear the flow chart was helpful (I’ve got more tools for traders ahead, included with Trading the Open). And yes, the best way to learn tape reading is from me, during live markets, we’ll be doing a Lot of tape reading “walkthroughs” with live educational breakouts.
“What an incredible opportunity…A chance to watch a professional…Count me in, Ken, and Thanks.” – Dale H.
” I’ve studied with you for years and have taken courses and have learned lots from you Ken! …Thanks tons Ken!” – Vincent C.
“Learning from someone who actually trades has greater value than some black box” – Joe N.
Reply from Ken: Right, Joe — there’s no shortcuts, otherwise black-box software peddlers would use their black box software to trade and make a fortune (instead of selling it, at curiously overpriced rates).
” want to learn to swing trade, so seeing how Ken does it will probably not get any better.” – Ross M.
” live trading is the only way to learn” – Glenn S.
“The real time trading is the most powerful experience for the trader to learn from!” – Dan G.
Reply from Ken: You are right, Dan. The key is learning what patterns and techniques to use. With Trading the Open, my goal is to help traders make improvements to both their technical trading skills as well as TIMING skills, which can best be shown during live markets (for intraday trading at least).
“Am interested to see if/how gap opens might influence the direction for the day” – Russ W.
Reply from Ken: Hi Russ, absolutely — trading gaps correctly is one of my favorite trading strategies, and we’ll look at gaps. Gaps are great, when traded correctly (minor gap continuations traded in-trend, major gaps with bracket trades set outside immediate s/r levels).
“It is great to watch you trade the way you teach. Thanks.” – Tom G.
“trading gaps are a good way to master the market. the question is which market?” – Eli B.
“The thing I like Best about the idea of the Trading the Open Live Room is seeing how to apply proper execution on the right edge of the chart.” – Ed B.
“i have been looking on trading the market open strategies , i believe this is the one i need!” – Johnny
“I would really like to learn swing trading….most of the trading activity seems to be at the opening or the close. Learning to catch the move at the opening would add one more item to my trading plan…..time of entry.” – Jean J.
Reply from Ken: Hi Jean, thanks for writing in — you bring up a good observation about swing trading. Getting in to a swing trade at the best price during the open of the market is a very useful skill for swing traders; I show exactly how to set both initial and scale-in entries for swing trades (in addition to trade management, where specifically to set stops, with live charts) and more. I’ll see you in Trading the Open.
“Most intraday profits can be made in the first 45 minutes – I need to understand how to trade this time period better.” – Bud S.
Trading the Open underscores two important concepts. Preparation – having a focus list; using technology to help you trading; being fast and decisive. Focus – rather than staring at a screen all day, trading the open lets you focus your attention to perform the very best.
Please add me to the list for your next presentation. Thanks” – Martin K.
Reply from Ken: Hi Martin, you bring up an excellent point, which is being both focused and decisive. Trouble is, for a lot of traders they haven’t been taught, from the “voice of experience”, how to weed out the great trading setups from the “meh” /so-so ones. In Trading the Open, we go over dozens of charts together AS they’re breaking out, to learn as a team… I’ll see you at the live room session; thanks for posting.
“First hour trading can be very beneficial if you know what to do. So with the right guide you can learn and execute the right trade (with the right money management)…” – Ron
“Sounds like another trading tool whick Ken is offering to make his clintele more efficient traders….count me in.” – Larry D.
“I studied at day trading university back in 2004 and I loved it.” – D.A.
“What I like best about the idea of a live trading room with Ken is watching how to make trading decisions at the open in real-time. I know many traders who avoid the first half hour or hour of trading because they feel there’s too much risk. But I think there are setups that can be traded in the first hour and I think Ken has some methods to do that.” – Shaun T.
Reply from Ken: Hey Shaun, thanks — and you’re right, there’s no substitute for seeing trade setups in REAL time markets, explained step by step, to help you. And the first half hour is often the best time to initialte new trades (though I usually wait til 9:35, skipping the first 5 minutes since that’s when MOO/ market on open orders are being cleared, which can make for a few wild minutes). You’ll learn from the demo/sim papertrading examples we cover (no live trades are made).
“Thank you Ken for your brilliant assistance with the market.” – R.N.
“Trading the open offers so many opportunities, just as long as you’re on the right side!” – Isabel C.
