Develop Your TradeBook and Define Your Edge in Trading
By John Hiltz

Director of Education

If you have ever wondered why one trader can be effective trading one strategy while another trader struggles with the same strategy, then this is the workshop for you. John will discuss different approaches to taking your most successful strategies and discovering how to make minor adjustments to improve their effectiveness.

By Peter Donnelly

Director of Performance

Your TradeBook is not, and should not, be a set of unrelated patterns. The market flows continuously and your trading must flow with it. Peter will discuss how you should use your TradeBook to ‘read’ the market. He will specifically show you how understanding and leveraging PCT’s existing strategies can allow you to trade both specific set-ups but also how to ‘flow’ from one to another with the market. Specifically, Peter will demonstrate how a BHOD can flow into a Mountain Pass which flows into a Lightning Bolt, all leveraging VPA, Level 2 and time and sales.
