Show Notes

  • How do you feel about your tweets being self fulfilling prophecies? – All in agreement that it happens. Cobie says it’s great for clout building to share positions as a profitable trader.
  • Cobie – Dogecoin has become a MintPal pump, except now it’s the entire world focused on the asset – legitimised by Elon etc. Cobie believes it’s now possible that Doge won’t follow previous cycles.
  • Bollinger Bands creator (John) helped save Cobie by DM-ing about his euphoric tweets at a local top
  • Trading Strategies:
  • Mayne: Changed a lot over the years, taught by Kaz about TA. Trades price action, horizontal levels, order blocks.
  • Lomah: Mainly trades price action, struggles with trading price discovery without the levels.
  • Psycho: Price action also, when trading price exploration – two tools for building an edge is mean reversion and using a modified parabolic indicator that he built. Acceleration factor, when it breaks the parabola it tends to be when a dump will happen.
  • Rookie & Kaleo: Simplistic, looking at S/R levels and past liquidity. Taking profits on the way up to lower stress.
  • Cobie – On Price Exploration: Look at leverage positions, open interests current P&L, where will they look for profits and exits. That’s the levels, future is written out for you.
  • Ledger brings up altcoin leverage –  targets and time frames are lower. How do you manage differently vs spot.
  • Lomah: Level to level, if he sells early he struggles to get back in. You can’t sleep well in leverages positions, spot bags help.
  • Kaleo: Agrees, moved a lot into spot, peaceful and feels better. Not the same hit as big leveraged swings but don’t get too greedy with it.
  • Rookie: after you get to a certain point, leverage trading is a sacrifice on mental health. If you’re aping in at this point with your net worth it’s just gambling.
  • Mayne: Agrees it is gambling.
  • Cobie: the start of the cycle is when to make use of leverage, more obvious invalidation. As cycles progress, confidence using leverage as the price goes higher.
  • Psycho: Majority in spot, not the environment to be trading leverage
