Principles for trading success

Although Logikfx offers many angles to trade with different strategies, an overarching theme runs through the standpoint we hold: Trade with logic, and focus on the things within your control.

The four trading principles you see here have been intrinsic to our company since its inception, and they are embedded in the Logikfx culture. They represent both our past and our future - an enduring philosophy that bridges the investment knowledge gap. 

Goals

Create clear, appropriate trading goals

An appropriate trading goal should be measurable and attainable. Success should not depend upon out-sized positions or returns, nor upon impractical short-term trading.

Defining goals clearly and being realistic about ways to achieve them can help protect traders from common mistakes that derail their progress.

 

The goals should be thorough, and split into immediate, medium, and long term categories.  

System

Develop a suitable asset selection using a strict strategy

A sound trading strategy starts with an asset selection suitable for your portfolios objective. The selection should be built upon reasonable expectations for risk and returns, and should use diversified trades to avoid exposure to unnecessary risk. 

Both asset selection and diversification are rooted in the idea of balance. Because all trading involves risk, traders must manage the balance between risk and potential reward through the choice of portfolio holdings and position sentiment. 

Entry Cost

Minimise costs, your return depends on it

Markets are unpredictable. Costs are forever. The lower your costs, the greater your share of a trade's return. Research suggests that lower-cost trading has tended to outperform high-cost alternatives, naturally.

This is why Logikfx establish partnerships with brokerages to allow its professional members to enjoy heavily reduced commissions.

To hold onto even more of your return, manage for tax efficiency by offsetting losses. You can't control the markets, but you can control the bite of costs and taxes. 

Discipline

Maintain perspective and long-term discipline

Trading can provoke strong emotions. In the face of market turmoil and volatility, some traders may find themselves making impulsive decisions or, conversely, becoming paralysed, unable to implement their strategy or re-balance an portfolio as needed. Discipline and perspective can help them remain committed to a long-term trading program through period of market uncertain
