Stress-Free Trader (The Lawrence Chan Blog)


Full time index & forex trader, occasional consultant to hedge funds / institutions, my work leads to my not so normal view of the financial markets. My blog mostly talks about trading, market behaviours and other musings.

Originally this blog is supposed to be organized in a separate website like what most authors do but I don’t think I will maintain it properly that way. So here it is as part of this website.

In case you are curious of what I do outside of blogging here:

Asking for Help To Post Reviews

2015 Apr 17 Fri 13:11:04 | by Lawrence

To my members who are also members of BigMikeTrading.com, I need your help.

I like to ask for a favour if any of you can help me start a thread there in the vendors / product reviews section:

https://www.bigmiketrading.com/vendors-product-reviews/

All I am looking for is some honest reviews about this site.

Many Thanks!

Just an update on where things are in terms of site development at this point in time.

It’s been couple of months since I started my coaching / mentoring service. To call this two months hectic is an understatement. I ended up spending at least double the amount of time I planned to. I have to say I enjoy it much as I get to see positive changes happening to these traders.

That’s the reason I am running out of time to write articles since my schedule was all messed up. As I learn my ropes in managing my time on the coaching side, things will get back to normal.

On the development side of trading signals, I have many requests for recent trades and performance of the the trading signals to be posted on the site. It is a reasonable request but it also takes a lot of changes to the existing designs to automate the process. I still haven’t make up my mind on whether going all automated or just doing some kind of manual posting monthly.

The trouble with performance reporting is that the biases and models I published are created with customization in mind. The traders can learn about the biases and understand the risk profile of the models and adapt them to fit their personal trading styles. If I publish the recent trades and performance, which versions of them that I should go with?

The posting of these reports could be more confusing than not.

On the other front, next step of my plan is to release my trading signals and models based on custom tick indices. This set of models are very different from whatever I have posted so far on the site. They are heavily intraday focus and exploit smaller timeframe biases.

And I have not forgotten about forex. If all goes well, will release several intraday swing plays on the majors. They are long delayed and I feel bad about it because I promised last year to roll things out quickly.

Now that I am settling down with my new routines and schedules, I think I can manage the long list of things that has to be done. My goal is to accomplish as much as possible this quarter. This will keep me very busy for sure.

Happy Easter and Name of DaytradingBias.com

2015 Apr 3 Fri 12:06:30 | by Lawrence

Happy Easter Everyone from Muskoka!

I am taking a break from home at Muskoka right now. Muskoka is up north from Toronto and you can see that it is still frozen up here. Looks like it will take at least a few more weeks before fishing is possible up here.

Interesting question raised by several new members of the site – what is the name of daytradingbias.com?

It turns out I do not really have a name for the site at all.

I guess I should think of one.

Basil Flowers

2015 Mar 30 Mon 14:32:19 | by Lawrence

I was not a person by any measure having green thumb. However, I was left with the responsibility to take care of a number of plants. Yet I have no idea what I was doing several months ago. All I thought is that if I keep watering them, they will be fine. Of course, it does not work that way at all.

Spring has arrived and the basil in my place has grown flowers. I did not notice the flowers until this morning. Solid proof I am still an idiot with plants.

Paul Tudor Jones made a presentation at TED2015 on the concept of justness and the necessity to expand the definition of capitalism.

Here is the blog entry from Ted talking about his presentation,
