    Very informative and world class as usual from Peter L Brandt. I'd really like to know how to calculate the underwater table for different asset classes.

    Very useful thank you Peter! I have a question regarding your running profits guideline. Almost every other guideline is about closing trades. 8.2 Run your profits is surrounded by 8.1 and 8.3 which are about tightening stops. I am wondering how does runnning profits at all fit into your strategy, it seems its serves as a reminder to not be too tight. I am really enjoying this series, thank you very much for taking the time and for being ready to share your insights.

    James K. Your stops: are they mental stops or do you place them physically in the market for all to see? Great work by the way as I am trying to make a living trading and I am in line with you but not so eloquently or in depth of thought!

      In extremely liquid markets I will place physical stops -- markets such as Crude Oil or USD/JPY. For other futures and forex and all stocks I use alerts that come to my iphone and ipad. Then I have some time to determine if the stop was run by real market action or more likely by HFTs running stop levels.

    Grant and Raoul: Peter has too much wisdom to let him retire. Please bring him on in some regular capacity to share his knowledge and thinking on markets. Great stuff!

    Cheers Peter, great to get the wisdom of an old pro. Until discovering you I was very skeptical of TA, and your insight into Risk Management would have saved me a lot of money had I discovered your lessons earlier. Better late than never I guess. Your explanation of the time spent in a negative drawdown situation was enlightening and explains so much. Great work Thank You. I may just hold out in this money game.

    Incredibly interesting. Even if you aren’t going to be an outright speculator, that’s pretty useful on how to think about risk management.

    I am enjoying the Brandt series immensely! Cutting losses short is so paramount from being eaten alive in the mkts. U could be right in your thinking but price & timing is truth people.

      It appears to be anything but "hotly debated" that Peter's video was outstanding. We have 100% agreement!
