I look forward to revealing my best "keeping small stops while not getting shaken out" trading
tactics to you during these upcoming 3 very special events. This one's very popular.





As always, per regulatory compliance requirements, no profitability claims or promises are being made.
All information is for educational/informational use only - trading is a high-risk, speculative activity and
generally-expected customer/trader results are that most traders lose money and are not profitable. Trade smart!


Discover how to harness the power of using "Micro Stops" in your own trades during this powerful, practical active traders' session. In this hour-long session, you'll learn:

  • Step-by-step Micro-Stop tactics, such as "Rotational Stops", how to use dual stops with current-market charts, and how to set hard vs trailing "micro-stops"
  • Day trading and swing trading stops, using 2-day high low micro-stops, "Panic Button" stops (new strategy), and bracketed micro-stops using tight inside ranges
  • How to set stops following gaps against you, for overnight hold trades (being able to know exactly how to trade following a negative gap can make a difference in exiting quickly)
  • How to Set up a "Micro Stop Trading Plan", explained step by step for your trades (in this section you'll see what exactly to do in order to make "Micro Stops" an integral part of your own personal trading plan — plus we'll have Q&A time to make sure you get answers).

Experienced traders know that keeping stops as tight as possible is one key to avoiding large losses, which is one key to potentially trading more successfully. In this special one-hour training event, you'll be unlocking all-new strategies you can start using immediately, including:

  • New "Profit-Lock" stops, Part I (setting exits for when trades work out, explained carefully with both P&L and technical based Micro-Stop examples for active traders)
  • Entries and exits, and how to combine them with specific "Micro-Stop" Patterns when decising when and how to enter and exit your trades
  • "Fast and Furious" exits with Micro-Stops for trading during high-volatility markets (this is critical for active traders who are taking stops during times when markets move fast)
  • Candlestick-based Micro-Stops: combining precision western technicals with candles, using new tighter criteria for how to trade multiple market conditions
  • How to use "Rapid-Fire" Micro-Stops to exit trades that are starting to go against you
  • Interactive "How To Set Micro-stops" trading activities and Q&A session

Oftentimes in volatile markets, using chart-pattern based stops can cost far too much money when trades don't work out. Instead, learn how to trade using money-based P&L "Micro Stops", where you set stops based on the amount of money the trade goes against you. In this valuable session, you'll be shown:

  • How to use money-based "Micro-Stops" to define the maximum dollar cost for your stops, and how to exit trades once they start to approach that P&L/"red dollar figure"
  • "Jailbreaker" stops: How to help your trading capital exit trades as soon as it's in trouble, using this innovative new Micro-Stop strategy for day and swing trading entries & exits
  • Profit-Lock stops, Part II (how to potentially trade to extract maximum wins from your trades, using careful precision micro-stops every time you exit a position)
  • Trading scared vs trading Smart: how Micro-Stops can make a difference in how to trade
  • "Oops I Did It One More Time" multiple-micro stop exit tactics to avoid repeating mistakes
  • Micro-Cup based stops and double-candle micro-stops (advanced tactics)
  • Interactive "Step adjuster" trading Q&A activities for chart quizzes & how to set micro-stops

Dear Trader,

One of the most important things to "get right" as a trader is keeping your stop losses as small as possible. The simple sad fact is, most traders are absolutely clueless when it comes to getting out small, fast and inexpensively with small stops when they're wrong about a trade entry. I know this, because over the last 11 years I routinely ask traders during my webinars, "where would you set the stop on this trade?", and the answers are invariably far too loose, and would cost too much, for their stop losses. You need to trade tighter, like a pro.

Instead, I want to teach you how, based on thousands of actual trades I've done over the years, I manage to keep my trading costs as low as possible, by using tight stop-losses, what I've called "Micro-Stops"™. It's a new breakthrough that can help you see how to tighten in "dual stops" for your trades, explained step by step.

What I believe can really help traders like you the most, is gaining a mindset of "when I'm wrong, I need to be wrong as inexpensively as possible", plus the technical chart pattern recognition skills it takes to make it happen.

And that's exactly what Micro Stops is designed to help you achieve for yourself.

Learning from a real trader, how to keep tight stops while not getting "shaken out", is an extremely valuable trading skill. Explained step by step with practical tips for both new and experienced active traders, this is one event you'll want to see for yourself.

Many traders "let it ride" when they're wrong (or even worse, add to losing trades), leading to disastrous, expensive trading mistakes that chew up valuable trading capital. I was like that too, many years ago. Now I work hard to keep my stops as small as possible, while staying "just out of reach" of chop and churn. This is a very useful trading skill, because it keeps you focused on the money, like you should be, while keeping stop-loss costs as potentially low as possible. And that's always a great goal for any active trader.


As any successful trader will tell you, being able to keep your stop-loss costs down to a bare minimum, while seeing how to to manage your trade from start to finish, is a key to making becoming a better trader. As a former corporate statistician and quality engineer, using precision trading skills for tight stops is something I have a ton of experience with, so I can teach you some very valuable tactics you can start using in your trades.

And that's what "Micro Stops" is designed to deliver... dozens of thought-provoking, precision trade management tactics that can help you potentially tighten in your stops, fast...

Ready To Learn How a REAL Trader Enters and Exits Trades With "Micro Stops",
Using What He's Learned from Thousands of Actual Trades... PLUS how you can
quickly use these little-known trading strategies in your own trades, too?


How Much Better Could Your Trading Be, If You Only Kept Your Stops As Small As Possible, To Minimize The Cost of "Trades Gone Wrong"? (you've got to see this...)
  How experienced traders keep their costs to a minimum by stopping out earlier rather than later, at the very first sign of trouble...   and how active traders can use a similar well thought-out approach to figuring out how to be more careful in tightening in their stops (the ability to "be wrong, small" is one of the key differences between successful pro traders and struggling at-home retail traders!)

Quickly being able to know the "price that proved you wrong", using improved precision exit triggers and stop-out levels, can potentially make a big difference in how you approach each week's markets.

         Interactive "Micro-Stop" trade management LIVE exercises with current charts.  You'll "look over my shoulder" as we go through dozens of charts together. You'll see not just one, but TWO stop-out levels for each entry setup to learn from.

Even better, you'll be able to see "rookie vs professional" stop outs, and discover for yourself WHY and HOW to set these tight stops in your own trading... this is extremely important for you to discover how to use (it's just that good... and critical to learn, if you're an active day or swing trader).
  Most traders use stops that are FAR too wide.... and this can be devastating to your trading account.  If you're taking stop losses of over $20-$50 trade routinely, then you're absolutely paying far too much in how you trade. But the REAL trick is, setting stops that are extremely tight, and therefore minimize your risk, while Avoiding getting stopped out by whipsaw or choppy trade patterns.

You'll see how to set entries that are designed to keep you in on strong breakouts and pivots, while potentially minimizing the percentage of "stop and chops" that having improperly-placed stops can cause (you'll really like this, once you see it in action).
  How to confidently set very tight "Micro Stops" on all your day and swing trades in a way that's designed to keep your cost of trading as low as possible.   Ths, you'll be equipped to set your stops and manage your trades more conservatively from start to finish, thanks to my new "Micro Stops" process you'll be learning about.

Whether you're a stock, emini, ETF or forex day or swing trader, these setups and the process you'll be taught for rapidly setting "Micro Stops" to are all vitally important for you to learn. Because half the battle of winning, is avoiding large (over-$100) trading losses. See how it's done.

"...if one can use small stops and remain psychologically balanced and grounded..then getting stopped out in the context of a complex re-trace is no problem, and one can just re-enter when the complex re-trace ends and the next impulse wave begins to continue in the direction of the trend. We take less "heat" and still participate when the trend continuation occurs.

What actually happens is that traders become discouraged and do not take the end of the complex re-trace, and the move continues without them...system optimization is affected by every parameter in the system, and stop size is definitely one of those parameters...keep your psychological capital management as clearly in mind as your financial capital management to get the advantages of using small stops... Thanks again Ken for the great job you do, your authenticity and your sense of humor!" - Eliot B.

"I cannot always attend your webinars live, but whenever I do I always learn something that can help me with my trading. And even though I may not make it live I like the fact that I have access to the recording.  Finally I like the fact that your webinars actually teach "us traders" something useful that we can apply immediately vs other webinars that I have attended that was only a sales promotion." - Wayne B.
Reply from Ken: Hey thanks, Wayne, I appreciate the kind words. I agree completely; most of the trading webinars out there are just powerpoint low-value "chart talk" that's theory-based (with no actual trades shown), and are either live or prerecorded generic sales promotions, which wastes people's time and doesn't genuinely help traders.

Here's a recording I made a few weeks ago that's been very popular, everyone can go ahead and download it. Take a listen; as a former Fortune-500 consultant, I've included many professional tips on what to look for intrading webinars. Such as, "did you learn a specific 'HOW to trade' tactic that you can start using immediately in your trading, yes or no?" That's an "acid test", most of the internet marketer phony trader pitchfest bs people give low- or no-value fake "trading webinars" that don't actually teach. And then they try and charge some ripoff $997-$1997 price for overpriced bs that doesn't work. Bah.

Here's a 27-minute audio seminar on "How to Use Trading Webinars the RIGHT Way" I recorded a few weeks ago, for active traders (right click/file save as and listen in windows media player, it's good, 49Mb audio mp3, 27 minutes of practical trading tips for how to use trading webinars that are genuine):

September 2, 2011 9:26AM

" I'd like to know if and how this works in the world of HFT trading?" - J.T.
Reply from Ken: Hi JT - yes in fact I designed MicroStops especially to help traders in volatile trading markets, in which institutional high-frequency trading (HFT) algos cause faster reversals. By using "rotational stops" and other MicroStop strategies I'll be teaching, traders are shown how to be more nimble and tight in their exits, as a "countermeasure" to offset HFT volatility. Great point, thanks.

September 2, 2011 9:17AM

I am interested on how I can built up my confidence and knowledge levels and be able to trade using tighter stop loss when I place my trades and without fear nor hesitation." - Benjamin B.

September 1, 2011 8:36AM

"If the trade is not right from the beginning is it better to be out early than late. You will miss some but they was probably not for you." - Stefan

September 2, 2011 8:25AM

"I hope your new program works out great.  Knowing where to place your stops before you place your trade is most important!  Good Luck! " - Gary L.

September 2, 2011 8:15AM

"Small stops -- Interesting idea, but human psychology enters into the equation as well: Are you really going to obey your small stop rule after being stopped out twice in a row only to see the market reverse and move without you?" - Lee T.

September 1, 2011 11:23PM

Reply from Ken: Hi Primoz -- one of the "dirty little secrets" of the trading vendor industry is that anyone who advocates loose wide expensive risky stops usually does so to Camoflauge their poor trading entry and exit skills (or non-working bs software). If instead of vendors, you ask any Professional trader (specialist, market maker, successful prop/hedge fund trader), they'll all advocate tight stops. The saying among pros is "tight is right". Also ask any trading 'educator' who advocates loose wide costly stops, to show examples of their actual trades (with brokerage P&L actual screencaps, like I show), and you'll see the truth. Play it safe.

"Any further help with money management and tight stops has got to be a good thing.Especially in todays markets.Wild swings then flat price action means small stops should really help." - Martin L.
Reply from Ken: Hi Martin, yes — especially with the recent volatility we're seeing, it's very easy for a modest winning trade to turn into a large losing one, if you aren't using tight stops. I advocate making more trades, lighter size, tighter stops, to give you more shots at getting it right, rather than large risky size and large costly stops. Playing it tight in this market is the right approach; I'll cover how it works in the training. Thanks for posting.

""Keep your losses small and let your winners run" Yes indeed but HOW exactly? Small stop losses preserve capital but they also invariably lead to shakeouts and missed opportunity. Looking forward to learning about your solution to this trading puzzle." - Etienne C.
Reply from Ken: Hi Etienne, the key is setting your stops in a way that stays "just out of reach" of shakeouts... that's a primary skill I teach traders in this training, is how to set stops in a way that's designed to avoid the chop and shakeouts, while staying in to potentially capitalize on larger moves when they do occur. And yes it is a puzzle, looking forward to sharing some of the solutions I've found; the goal is to help keep traders' stop loss costs minimal, while getting in on decent moves to stay in, during mini-trend moves that work out. Good point - see you there.

"Ken usually nail it. His pre-webinars are better then most paid offerings by other purported traders." - ST.
Reply from Ken: Thanks - I try hard to do better for traders than the half-baked powerpoint-only theory bs that you see most vendors do, with their overpriced thinly-disguised pitchfest webinars that teach traders nothing, but instead just introduce a vague concept as a lead in to some overpriced bs course. That blows. I always say "where's the beef?" when I briefly tune in to other trading webinars. Show me HOW and WHAT to do, that's critical, not just rambling on about charts and indicators. Step by step.

Instead I like to show traders the "mechanics" of real trading charts, using current-market charts plus show exact step by step HOW to do things, plus answer questions and "charts of your choice" in a fast-paced, professional, candid webinar format. I appreciate the kind words, I'll keep working hard for everyone.

Reply from Ken: Hi Todd, only if you use single stops for entire positions. What I do is scale into And back out of my trades, which is one of many techniques I'll be teaching in MicroStops... with actual chart examples of how it's done. Setting 2 stops (one very tight, one a bit wider) for trading out of half the position at a time, is a favorite approach to trading I use myself, and will be showing how to do in MicroStops training for active traders.

"I love your educational vids, they are great, As for Micro Stops i think that it will assist me in losing less on false breakouts and gaining more revenues on true breakouts. I hope you will demonstrate on e-minis as well" - Ron R.
Reply from Ken: Thanks, Ron, glad to hear they're helpful. And you hit on a great point, which is differentiating between false vs true breakouts. A benefit to using MicroStops is the potential for having the inevitable false breakouts cost less, since stops are tight. And sure I'll be covering ES day trading chart examples as well as Forex, stocks and ETFs.

"There is one thing that I have always tried to do is avoid giving Stop - depending more on Mental stops. Because I have found that Stop Losses actually stops one out of the trade - by incurring Losses. Although they are also very important. They do prevent one from incurring heavier losses - when the Market goes grossly against our trade.
So I am perpetually searching for something that would help me set the right stop, specially if there is also a system for trailing stoplosses." - Nandini M.

August 30, 2011 2:24AM

"I'm interested in how the size of stops varies according to the changing size of one-minute candlesticks when a stock is moving rapidly up or down.  For example, a 40-cent stop won't cut it when a stock such as FAZ starts moving $1 a minute. You're getting into macro-stops in this case.

Reply from Ken: Right, Simon... it's gaining the "traders' eyes" for gauging what Exactly normal price action is (pullback volatility, depth of cups, ATR moves, exceptional moves vs regular trading ranges), and setting stops based on that, which is a key goal I've set for MicroStops training, to help traders. Great point.

"How can you prevent getting stopped out, due to volatility, without setting wide stops?" - Tom P.
Reply from Ken: Hi Tom, great question — the techniques I'll be teaching in "MicroStops" are designed to help solve that exact problem. For example, a good rule of thumb is to scale your stops, adjust them, based on the 2-day point range of what you're trading for swing trades (or, cup depths for intraday). They need to be different based on both a) the price and b) the point-range volatility of what you're trading. So we don't use blanket stop loss levels; in MicroStops I'll be showing traders a new strategy for scaling/adjusting the stop levels as a function of volatility. Thanks for the question, it's a good one.

"I'm very curious about what you will present.  Most of the success I've had over the years I've been trading has been due to what I've learned about being more selective with the entries my methods generate, but finding better exits that my basic signals has remained elusive.  

Sometimes I give back a lot of my open profits and while that may be consistent with the method used it can seriously hurt my confidence and lead me to deviate from my trading rules (almost always the end result is worse than if I had just stayed put).   So for me better stops is a goal both to make more money trading AND to have an easier time while trading." - Alfredo V.

I found that using a combination of tight stops and small size is a great way to get "started again" if fear of geting into new trades is an issue... which it is for all of us at some point in time,especially after taking a string of losses. We'll go step by step though how to use "Micro Stops" to help alleviate concern, while managing risk as tightly as makes sense, given the charts and markets we're in. See you there.

"Setting smaller stops seems sensible, but a stop that is too small or inappropriate will cause even larger losses. I'm very interested to learn what your definition of "Micro Stops" is and how it could improve my trading." - Steve T.
Reply from Ken: You are right, Steve — using too-small or inappropriately-defined stops can be just as bad as using too-wide stops (aka "death of a thousand trading cuts"). So the key is, finding the 'sweet spot' for small stops that keeps one in a decent trade, not out too soon, not out too late, but just right. And that's what "Micro Stops" is designed to do. The good thing is, I base all my training off of thousands of trades I've made over the years, so I can help traders navigate their entries, exits, targets and stops based on actual experience (that's an important edge to have). See you there!

"Keeping stops tight is great, but you have to be able to read the price action on the charts accurately.  We need to learn how to read the charts properly. That's why we need to be able to pick your brain Ken." - George T.
Reply from Ken: Hi George, agreed — so I'll be there for plenty of Q&A time, to explain how to combine small stops with specific price-action entry and exit signals, and more. — your point makes sense.

"I have participated in many of Kens other programs and was always impressed by the depths of knowledge & professionalism and this program follows the same mold" - Larry G.

"Sounds good. Learning to lose as little as possible in my trades is a great topic for a webinar." - Jean

August 29, 2011 3:13PM

"Placing stops that protect you from large losses, but don't take you out of good trades early is truly an art.  I've seen how Ken takes small losses, so I look forward to seeing how he  sets his stops." - Tim H.

"Finally, tips on how to limit losses in volatile markets." - Maria K.

"The only way to stay in the business of trading is to learn how to manage stops. Appropriate use of stops is the only answer." - Phillip B.
Reply from Ken: Right, Phillip — and yet curiously enough, much of the trading industry mostly focuses on entries, but not the exit side of it (or even worse, encourages traders to use wide stops, to camoflauge poor trading skills). How you manage your stops is often the most important factor in determining one's trading success. "It's all about the money", it always will be. Seeing how to keep stops as small as possible, while minimizing getting shaken out too early, is the main thing in MicroStops that everyone will be learning how to do for themselves. Thanks.

"Can't wait to see what you have to present Ken" - Darren S.

August 29, 2011 2:53PM

" After realising the importance of risk management to the longevity of a trading business, I was always looking ways to have tight stops.  So Ken's new initiative on educating on stops or microstops as Ken puts it to reduce risk and improve profitability is a welcome addition to a traders knowledge. Look forward to this exciting webinar." - Anees A.
Reply from Ken: Hi Anees, always good to read your comments... and you're right on target as always. Keeping stops much smaller than usual (as mis-taught by the vendors), is very important to keeping capital alive and well to keep on trading. Thanks for posting!

Discover how to harness the power of using "Micro Stops" in your own trades during this powerful, practical active traders' session. In this hour-long session, you'll learn:

  • Step-by-step Micro-Stop tactics, such as "Rotational Stops", how to use dual stops with current-market charts, and how to set hard vs trailing "micro-stops"
  • Day trading and swing trading stops, using 2-day high low micro-stops, "Panic Button" stops (new strategy), and bracketed micro-stops using tight inside ranges
  • How to set stops following gaps against you, for overnight hold trades (being able to know exactly how to trade following a negative gap can make a difference in exiting quickly)
  • How to Set up a "Micro Stop Trading Plan", explained step by step for your trades (in this section you'll see what exactly to do in order to make "Micro Stops" an integral part of your own personal trading plan — plus we'll have Q&A time to make sure you get answers).

Experienced traders know that keeping stops as tight as possible is one key to avoiding large losses, which is one key to potentially trading more successfully. In this special one-hour training event, you'll be unlocking all-new strategies you can start using immediately, including:

  • New "Profit-Lock" stops, Part I (setting exits for when trades work out, explained carefully with both P&L and technical based Micro-Stop examples for active traders)
  • Entries and exits, and how to combine them with specific "Micro-Stop" Patterns when decising when and how to enter and exit your trades
  • "Fast and Furious" exits with Micro-Stops for trading during high-volatility markets (this is critical for active traders who are taking stops during times when markets move fast)
  • Candlestick-based Micro-Stops: combining precision western technicals with candles, using new tighter criteria for how to trade multiple market conditions
  • How to use "Rapid-Fire" Micro-Stops to exit trades that are starting to go against you
  • Interactive "How To Set Micro-stops" trading activities and Q&A session

Oftentimes in volatile markets, using chart-pattern based stops can cost far too much money when trades don't work out. Instead, learn how to trade using money-based P&L "Micro Stops", where you set stops based on the amount of money the trade goes against you. In this valuable session, you'll be shown:

  • How to use money-based "Micro-Stops" to define the maximum dollar cost for your stops, and how to exit trades once they start to approach that P&L/"red dollar figure"
  • "Jailbreaker" stops: How to help your trading capital exit trades as soon as it's in trouble, using this innovative new Micro-Stop strategy for day and swing trading entries & exits
  • Profit-Lock stops, Part II (how to potentially trade to extract maximum wins from your trades, using careful precision micro-stops every time you exit a position)
  • Trading scared vs trading Smart: how Micro-Stops can make a difference in how to trade
  • "Oops I Did It One More Time" multiple-micro stop exit tactics to avoid repeating mistakes
  • Micro-Cup based stops and double-candle micro-stops (advanced tactics)
  • Interactive "Step adjuster" trading Q&A activities for chart quizzes & how to set micro-stops
