Finding short term gain without long term pain

While the general principle of ‘time in the market, rather than timing the market’ can serve investors well, there are many opportunities to take small wins along the way. So what does a great trading opportunity look like?

Author and trader Louise Bedford of The Trading Game joins the podcast to discuss:

  • what a good trading strategy looks like
  • how much to risk, and when to take money off the table
  • which markets and sectors look most – and least – attractive to a trader, and
  • how to manage your emotions when the market goes against you.
