Mastering Short-Term Trading

Short-term trading techniques involve a combination of skill, intuition, and experience by a trader. Traders make money by taking short-term positions in securities after identifying opportunities in both bull and bear markets.Mastering short-term trading requires certain attributes in a trader.The following factors are fundamental for a short-term trading strategy to ensure your losses are minimized while your gains are maximized.

Risk control

The risk involved in short-term trading is commensurable with the returns i.e. high risk, high reward. However, prudent risk management strategies should also be applied to short-term trading for a trader to control the risk involved and to realize the objective of the trade in the form of capital gains.Some of the risk control measures that short-term traders have to master include the limit order or a stop order.


The limit order is an instruction given in advance about the price points where securities can be traded (buy/sell). It is used for maximization of the trader’s portfolio by ensuring that the trader takes advantage of the securities price points whether the price is falling or rising by triggering either the buy limit order or sell limit order respectively.On the other hand, the stop order is an instruction given to a broker on the extent to which an investor can sustain losses on a given portfolio. The stop order, therefore, reduces the investor’s risk by cutting losses before or at a particular price point.

Technical skills

Markets are characterized by reoccurring conditions after certain periods or during specific events. A detailed analysis of the data gathered in a market extensively shows patterns in the market that become predictable. Mastering short-term trading requires the capacity to identify the accurate timing of occurrence and the conditions/events leading to the occurrence of the anticipated cycle for exploitation by the trader.The technical analysis should also be meticulous enough to determine the trends in the performance of a tracked security over a very short period, including a day or weeks. Having such a capability places you in a better position to be a successful trader. The identified trends being relied on for decision making should have clear recurring bottoms and breakouts as a sign of proper technical analysis.Another technical tool that a trader has to master is the ability to read different market data presented in various formats. For example, a short-term trader can use the moving average of a particular security to determine the best moment where the price is declining to executive a call.

Timing/experience/intuition

Short-term trading is characterized by holding a position for a very short period of time, sometimes seconds, and releasing the position to realize a capital gain. This requires mastery in the identification of opportunities in the market that are driven by the prevailing condition in the market, especially market sentiment. Exploiting the volatility of the markets is, however, a risky strategy because unforeseen events may disrupt the anticipated outcome of the identified market opportunity.Essentially, trading is a strategy for realizing quick capital gains in the securities market.

Spiritual Business Owners – How to Sell Your Services By Telling The Truth

Is telling the ‘truth’ applicable to every spiritual business owner?

In short, yes!

  • Do you think of ‘selling your services’, as though you’d be selling your soul?
  • Do you think your clients might judge you, or think you are bothering them by contacting them with a ‘sales’ pitch?
  • Do you think that they MIGHT think YOU are all about the money?

Listen that train of thought isn’t helping you and it most certainly isn’t placing focus and attention on your clients, or potential clients.

I know you know this!

But, regardless of what you think and feel, you also know, to thrive not just survive as a spiritual business owner, you need to move away from the main stream.

That is the doom and gloom mind set and concentrate and place laser focus on creating your own economy.

So, whether you are looking to learn ‘how to sell your services’ as a consulting or coaching business, at the forefront of every message you put out there needs to be your vision and mission.

What is your WHY?

The truth about why you became a spiritual business owner in pursuit of selling your services to the people whom you are trying to reach, is just as important as your service or product.

Think about the people you do business with, you resonate with them in some way.

So, the more the real you is at the forefront of the way you sell your service, the more you feel authentic and in integrity with telling your ‘story’.

Conducting our spiritual business this way, allows us to operate more confidently and align our core values with getting our services in front of the people we are meant to serve.

You are going to be having those ‘money conversations’ and feeling worthy of getting paid for the incredible value you bring to the table as a spiritual business owner is a must!

So who do you want to become more of as a spiritual business owner?

I’m guessing that even though you might want to sell your product or service to a business, online or offline, a client face to face or over the phone, customers in local area or global reach, in an email with relationship marketing, to a company through LinkedIn, for a $5 on Fivver, Facebook, Groupon or even Amazon, at the core of everything you do is following your ‘bliss’ or your unique SOUL Purpose.

So, if this is the case, just tell that truth!

There is nothing wrong, in fact there is everything right, with creating a spiritual business to be of greater service in the world.

The even greater part is when you allow others to pay you for your service or product, that way you doing more and more of the work you love and you get to reach more people as you are able to invest in your self, your lifestyle, your marketing and your business.

But, you can’t get paid unless you learn how to sell your products and services in a way that feels good to you.

So what would feel good, no, great to you?

What do you secretly envision?

Telling the truth works right across the board, this could be knowing;

  • How to sell your consulting services
  • How to sell your professional services
  • How to sell your coaching services
  • How to sell your writing services
  • How to sell your web services

It’s no good being in business, if you are going to stay stuck in a rut and keep playing small.

Where’s the fun in hiding behind closed doors giving lip service to your own goal??

The next step, is for you to learn how to sell your services like a ninja!!

Why?

It takes the fear out of selling, success and failure!!

You need to feel comfortable with fearlessly receiving financial prosperity as you grow your spiritual business to the next level.

So why do you need to master selling your services?

If you do not know how to sell your services and products ‘effortlessly’, you are not only doing yourself a disservice, but your loved ones and your clients and their loved ones.

That’s not said to tug on your heart strings well perhaps just a little.

The main thing here, is to help you see yourself being the spiritual business owner who no longer needs to hide behind excuses, telling yourself and others ‘fear based lies’.

So will you do what you came here for?

Learn to how to sell YOUR services and products more efficiently?

The feeling of delivering value comes from within.

That is how worthy you feel.

If you are just starting out you might not feel accomplished yet. If you’ve been in business for years, you might feel as though you have to ‘dumb’ yourself down so as not to seem like you are bragging.

That’s ALL low vibration stuff.

I say this because focusing on the ‘how to sell your services and products’ comes from an action oriented space.

It’s not just knowing more about how to, but it is rather to come from a place of being of service in the world as my mentor says ‘higher vibration selling’.

When you have clarity and support around fulfilling your vision and mission, you see helping others achieve results as more of a partnership.

You are not selling anything they don’t find of value, who wouldn’t find unlocking their highest potential of value?

It’s not at all surprising that knowing how to sell your services in a way that feels authentic can be somewhat of a challenge.

Chances are you are reading this because you have either tried and ‘failed’ (remember there is no failure only feedback) you are about to get yourself out there or you’ve been doing this a while now and you want to put a different spin on things.

We both know where ever you are, is just where you need to be, right?

So, learn to be okay with telling the truth about where you are, who you are and what you want to accomplish.

This makes life, marketing and business so much more enjoyable.

Why?

Because you forget about learning how to sell your services and come from a space of how can I share my gifts talents and abilities with the people I am here to serve.

My mentor asked me yesterday… what my why was.

My why to speaking with you today in a heart centred way even though I have mild Irlen and Dyslexia and doing what I do…

“There is no going back for me, this is embedded into me, it’s a way of life for me. I’ve burnt my bridges, this is it!!”

He said say it again, now write that down and look at it every day and especially when you feel you are not having such a great day!

  • So what’s your why?
  • Why do you do or want to do what you want to do?

Chances are you never signed-up for the selling part, right?

Well, if you are a spiritual business owner, you’ll know by now you have to get good at selling, no scratch that, you have to learn to ‘sales mastery’ in order for your spiritual business to grow and match the level of your unique SOUL Purpose.

So, how do you sell more of your services, the long and short of it is, feel good about what you are selling!!

Simple?

Well feeling good about what you are selling, in a nut shell means feeling good about you!

Your spiritual business is an extension of the spiritual YOU.

You need to come from mind set that will ease your negative associations of selling if you are to learn how to sell your services without feeling like you are selling your soul!

This often brings with it huge challenges on how to overcome money blocks.

Are you open to receiving money for your gift, your passion and purpose in life?

NEWS FLASH:

Knowing about how to sell your services isn’t really about selling.

In fact, it’s letting go of the ‘selling part’ ALL together and instead working on your relationship with money! Sorry!

It is more likely that you don’t feel worthy of getting paid what you are really worth, than fear of selling that is holding you back from selling your services and products to clients, customers, to a business or a company.

Think about it, you are here, there is so much information out there on selling, you could learn and apply it today, but what’s really holding you back?

Is it your vibration around money?

Are you charging what you are really worth, or are you working for low cost or free?

The problem is probably going to be in how much value you believe you are adding to others and how much that is worth.

That it not for you to worry about, go and ask the people you are here to service.

Ask them how you can best serve them and do it.

Raise your vibration as Stuart Wilde once said and then when you do and you start attracting more clients, make sure you have a way to bill them!

My hope is to demystify how to sell your services. I hope that telling the truth works for you.
