“Mastery seems to come to those who practice sending and receiving with masters.” Ed Seykota

“Since so much of trading is about your ability to follow your system, a good system generally resonates with your gut approach, and evolves through years of trading. The chances of finding a system, off the shelf, that works for you are slim to none. Before you do much trading, you might like to study your system’s historical performance to help you set your expectations, about how you might feel following it. You might also take your feelings of discouragement to a Tribe meeting, to see if you are just using trading as a way to justify them.  You might even have an AHA about the positive intention of discouragement.” Ed Seykota

“The Trading Tribe Process (TTP) intends to convert feelings from adversaries into allies, thus supporting sticking with sound principles. Tribe members intend to find positive intentions for their feelings.” Ed Seykota

“The notion that Intention = Result, is a belief or personal decision, subscription to which invokes powerful corollaries about dealing with uncertainty, staying in the now, taking responsibility, etc. If you accept Intention = Result, you see that it is your intention (and everyone else’s) for events to occur exactly the way they do. This attitude is particularly compatible with trend following.” Ed Seykota

“One of my beliefs about religions is that they tend to converge with each other, at their basic tenets.” Ed Seykota

“People who follow the DIM process (being judgmental, should-ing, why-ing, looking for causes and reasons, thinking about past and future, entraining repetitive dramas, etc.) seem to have fairly similar consequences.” Ed Seykota

“Your freedom lies along the lines of accepting your own feelings and acknowledging their positive intentions. You might consider taking your feelings to a Tribe meeting, and experiencing them until you come to celebrate them. When you allow your feelings and parents to be the way they are, you are free.” Ed Seykota

“Trend Traders, such as myself, cannot agree to deliver profit to a specific target, particularly on a consistent, annual basis. If you intend to get above-average returns, you might do well to expect above-average volatility, and considerable uncertainty. You might consider taking your feelings about wanting a secure future into TTP. Once you learn to live with uncertainty, your investment options may expand.” Ed Seykota

“Events may “plug us in” to feelings we don’t like, and serve as triggers for our dramas. Once we are into a drama, we may find causes, apply judgments, get angry, fight back and otherwise engage the DIM process. Alternatively, we can take the event as an opportunity to connect Fred and CM, experience our feelings, find positive intentions and reprogram Fred. This is the work of the Trading Tribe.” Ed Seykota

“Your intention for trading is accumulating wealth, so your result of trading is accumulating wealth.” Ed Seykota

“Trend Following and Radial Momentum Theory both hold that things in motion tend to stay in motion.” Ed Seykota

“Your intention to win in the long run might include the willingness to take small losses in the short run.” Ed Seykota

“Experiencing loss (and seeing its positive intentions) can be part of the process of minimizing loss, in both your trading account and your psyche.” Ed Seykota

“If the trend is already in progress, one way to get on board is to enter a stop order just outside the recent trading range. If a trend is not currently in process, you can enter a stop order outside the long-term trading range. “Ed Seykota

“ Trend Followers buy on penetration of resistance, sell on penetration of support and ignore targets” Ed Seykota

“ The trend is your friend except at the ends where it bends.” Ed Seykota

“Between meetings, Tribe Members tend to attract others who are good senders and receivers, so TTP becomes just part of life itself. Fully experiencing feelings “on the fly” by yourself requires intention, discipline, courage, practice – since you are trying to explore areas you instinctively avoid – and you may drift into trying to fix or get rid of your feelings, rather than go with them.” Ed Seykota

“TTP seems compatible with NLP, and with other forms of personal and spiritual growth technology. When you find the positive intention of your feelings of disgust and anger, you can use them to detect the flaws in the linguistic forms you cite.” Ed Seykota

“No trend, no profit.  All profitable trading is trend-trading.” Ed Seykota

“The twin dogs of judgment and resistance guard the door to insight from those who would enter by the path of logic.” Ed Seykota

Commitment is the power to realize that intention = result.” Ed Seykota

“One confirmation for completion of a TTP issue is noticing it no longer bothers you.” Ed Seykota

“You can find lots of bold traders and lots of old traders.  You can’t find many old bold traders.” Ed Seykota

“Computing the probability of a stock rising (in the future) is inconsistent with trend following” Ed Seykota

“Other methods of measuring success include noticing how well you follow your signals, ride your winners, cut losses and manage risk.” Ed Seykota

“Rule of thumb for passive trend following systems – allow about 50% of your expected annual profit for drawdowns – so if you want 1,500% per year, you might allow for 750% drawdowns.” Ed Seykota

“Your father can control you, only to the extent that you, in turn, are trying to control him. If you don’t care what he does, he has no control.” Ed Seykota

People who practice TTP tend to stop day trading, stop top and bottom picking, and stop trying to figure out the markets. They tend to develop an affinity for trend following, profit riding and loss cutting.” Ed Seykota

“Many successful traders have (1) a trading system that works, and (2) the ability to follow it.” Ed Seykota

“When people experience their feelings, naturally and without judgment, they seem to discover right livelihood, automatically.” Ed Seykota

“You can begin practicing TTP by being a good receiver for those around you; listen to them in a way that celebrates them being just the way they are.” Ed Seykota

“Causality and Responsibility are notions; they have no existence, other than to organize perception. You can’t buy a causality or a responsibility at Wal-Mart. The causal model has very narrow application. You can use causality to analyze what happens when the cue ball strikes the ten – you can’t use it to analyze how the pool table, the balls, and the player all come to appear at the same place and time. The responsibility model, in which you intend a result and assume responsibility seems to provide a better fit for real-life situations.” Ed Seykota

“as you work to free yourself from drama, your trading system and you as a trader tend to converge toward something that works.” Ed Seykota

“Trend Trading tends to keep you out of the markets, and safe during severe declines” Ed Seykota

“Belief in time allows people to avoid taking responsibility, and enables derivative myths such as causality, guilt and blame that provide bases for organizing society.” Ed Seykota

“In TTP framing, it’s all about how you choose to populate your moment of now. In time-centric framing, its all about Time in a Bottle.” Ed Seykota

“I do not claim to own any time, and do not think it even exists” Ed Seykota

“In general, a long term trend is what you see when you put a chart on your screen and look at it from across the room.  A short term trend is what you see when you look at it up close.” Ed Seykota

“A trend is a general direction in which something moves. To define a trend, pick a historical price, and subtract it from the current price. “ Ed Seykota

“A market has no inherent trend.  It only has a price, now.  A trend is a notion you bring to the market, depending on your own definition of trend.” Ed Seykota

“If you believe time exists, you perform that act of believing in the now.” Ed Seykota

“During trending markets, trend followers tend to wax strong and confident; they follow breakouts with enthusiasm and vigor.  This tends to precipitate choppy markets and strings of false breakouts that tend to discourage trend followers.” Ed Seykota

“A system exists as long as someone follows it.  People have a life span and tend to lose effectiveness near the end” Ed Seykota

“Trend Following acknowledges the principle of Momentum; as long as momentum exists, there is a place for trend following.” Ed Seykota

“Our lives generally assume the contours of the feelings we are unwilling to experience.” Ed Seykota

“You might keep a log of all the things you do during your trading day. Rank them according to how much time you spend doing them. Rank them according to how much they contribute to your performance. Likely you get two very different rankings.” Ed Seykota

“All things that exist, exist in this moment of now. While the concept of time may exist in the moment of now, time may not.” Ed Seykota

“Believing in the time model leads to all kinds of internal fractionations, interferes with Fred (the feelings pump) and empowers drama.” Ed Seykota

“Living within the “now model” tends to lead to CM-Fred integration and to right livelihood” Ed Seykota

People say they do or do not have “time” for things according to their priorities.” Ed Seykota

“Willingness to experience life, in all its forms, typifies the zero point.  From there you can increment to one-ness.” Ed Seykota

The definition of Trend  is specific to individual traders.” Ed Seykota

“Yes.  Commitment carries power and magic.” Ed Seykota

“If one person in a relationship dissolves co-dependence, and the other does not, they tend to separate and find appropriate partners. People in relationships that commit to growth tend to support each other through transitions – their relationships become containers for passingAHA’s.” Ed Seykota

“Aggressive pyramiding, and other forms of accumulating monster positions are good ways to lose big money, even in a bull market.” Ed Seykota

“Maintaining a commitment is particularly important when it comes up for a test.” Ed Seykota

“People are already getting exactly what they want.  Attempts to change behaviour by “positive thinking” go against the grain.” Ed Seykota

“If you wish to discover right livelihood and move toward it, you might consider taking the feelings of the judgments that define positive and negative into TTP as an entry point.” Ed Seykota

“In the responsibility model, there is no cause, no fault and no blame. Fault and blame are notions that derive from the causal model.” Ed Seykota

“The causality model supports the notions of blame and guilt.  These, in turn, support enforcement our basic societal institutions like law and politics.” Ed Seykota

“Many people set goals out in the non-existing future and then pose why questions about them. In TTP we create a snapshot, hold it in the now and experience the k-nots between us and our snapshots. In goal setting, the unit of measure between you and your goal is time. In the snapshot process, the unit of measure between you and your snapshot is k-nots of unwillingness.” Ed Seykota

Successful traders tend to take responsibility for (following) the rules.” Ed Seykota

“The Trading Tribe is an intentional community.  We hold that intention = results.” Ed Seykota

“Some People Take Responsibility for intentions = results. Others rely on concepts like luck, and like “stuff just happens” to explain others’ success” Ed Seykota

“In TTP we hold that we are responsible for our own feelings and and we work to convert our feelings from adversaries to allies.” Ed Seykota

“Working on others is a form of drama.  Working on ourselves reduces drama.” Ed Seykota

A trading system is an agreement you make between yourself and the markets. You can use a number of ways to test the agreement before you make it.” Ed Seykota

“At the Zero point, you are willing to experience all your feelings simultaneously, absent attachment to any of them.” Ed Seykota

“A therapist who charges clients by the hour may have an inherent conflict of interest – and feel financial pressure to create a co-dependent relationship – to exploit the client rather than set him free.” Ed Seykota

“The DIM process works fine for feelings you are already willing to experience, feelings you have on your emotional instrument panel.” Ed Seykota

We all tend to see whatever we see. Objective truth is highly subjective. Trends, in particular, are not objective.  They depend on subjective factors, such as personal preference in choosing smoothing factors.” Ed Seykota

To manifest your result try putting some tension in your intention” Ed Seykota

“Everything changes and adapts, as part of survival. TTP is a technique to facilitate adaptation.” Ed Seykota

“Back testing can help you experiment with various methods for trend identification and risk management until you find some combinations that suit your temperament. Any back testing you do, and any subsequent trading you do, all occur in the moment of now.” Ed Seykota

“The easiest way to reduce volatility is to stop trading.” Ed Seykota

“When people work through these k-nots, they tend to lose interest in individual events and gain interest in building and operating a system that averages out profitably in the long-term” Ed Seykota

Trend Traders get a signal and pull the trigger without regard to the result of any individual trade. Summing over many trades, you can derive an aggregate expectation for system profitability.” Ed Seykota

“When you trade at the Zero Point, you do so without responding to your own hopes, fears, expectations and other emotions about the trade. You operate the system, invisibly, without seeing yourself.” Ed Seykota

“When you accept that your results indicate your real intentions, you may be able to untie some of your k-nots and acquire different intentions and results.” Ed Seykota

“Complainers are typically very clever about pretending that they are not responsible for the results they get.” Ed Seykota

“Yes, as societies decline, welfare replaces charity, law replaces ethics, redistribution replaces enterprise, government replaces family and Homer Simpson replaces Ben Cartwright” Ed Seykota

“At the Zero Point, where the knots spill and where intention = result and where you have enormous creative power, I prefer creating with a bias toward “right” livelihood and “positive” intention, per the examples below.” Ed Seykota

“In TTP, we use the Responsibility Model. We do not attempt to explain things in terms of causality” Ed Seykota

“I use a rule of thumb that you place less than 10% of your liquid net worth at risk and that you stop your losses at 50% of that – so you have net exposure of 5% of your liquid net worth. If you are young and have another source of income, or if have higher liquid assets, you might be able to risk more. The idea is to keep the venture below your threshold of financial importance, so nominal ups and downs do not trigger your emotional uncle point and motivate you to abandon the venture during drawdowns.” Ed Seykota

“In the Responsibility Model, people focus on opportunities rather than on rights.” Ed Seykota

“TTP does not attempt to fix people; it is a method to assist people who are willing, to fix themselves. I teach a system.  For that, you are welcome. Your changes result from your own intention.” Ed Seykota

Willingness to stick to a system tends to pay off big time in losing weight, rock climbing, trading the markets and life in general.” Ed Seykota

“In general, long-term simulations on Trend Following systems tend to show better results on the long side. This correlates with the observation that volatility is proportional to price, so when you play from the long side you are starting with lower volatility and therefore a better reward / risk possibility.” Ed Seykota

“You Can Have Any Thing You Want if you are willing to do what it takes to get it.” Ed Seykota

“TTP Seems Consistent with Most Religions and seems to help people from one religion accept people from others.” Ed Seykota

“One problem with the Libertarian Party is that it tries to be what it can never be: namely, a Political Party.” Ed Seykota

“ SVO-p supports taking responsibility and staying in the now.” Ed Seykota

“Large-Community policies, such as how to spend federal money are not likely to change until citizens become willing to take responsibility for the situation and to experience their embarrassment, fear, sadness and disgust about the way the system works.” Ed Seykota

“You might consider taking your feelings about not having enough money to your Tribe as entry points.” Ed Seykota

“Absent these k-nots we would likely dismantle the minimum wage, the welfare system and the border control and the system would find a new way to balance.” Ed Seykota

“Fundamental Analysisis basically trying to guess right. Trend Trading is a process in which right and wrong are irrelevant.” Ed Seykota

“ If you wish to “grow a healthy child,” you might consider treating your child with honesty and respect – and taking your feelings about children being a burden to the hot seat as an entry point.” Ed Seykota

The More We Help To Set Others Free the more free we ourselves become.” Ed Seykota

“Yes. Successful traders have a profitable system and they stick to it.” Ed Seykota

“It requires (1) defining your system rigorously and (2) sticking to your system.” Ed Seykota

“In TTP Loving Relationships provide an opportunity to increase bandwidth.” Ed Seykota

“Cutting losses refers to the general notion of protecting yourself from further damage” Ed Seykota

“In practice, sticking to the part of your system that requires cutting losses may involve more than logic.” Ed Seykota

Trend Followers stay in the now and go with the flow.” Ed Seykota

“The Safest Way to Double Your Money is to fold it in half.” Ed Seykota

“Along with buying breakouts and riding winners, remember that Trend Trading includes managing risk and cutting losses.” Ed Seykota

“Yes, Tribe members seem to develop deep caring about each other – and an uncanny ability to read each other’s feelings.” Ed Seykota

“The problem with Trend Following systems lies in the difficulty in following them.” Ed Seykota

Trend Followers do not think about statistical return-to-mean strategies.” Ed Seykota

“People tend to lose faith in Trend Following after a series of reversals / whipsaws.  One pretty good sign that trends are about to assert again is people (such as yourself) renouncing Trend Following on FAQs” Ed Seykota

“Unwavering commitment to following a system is essential to making it work. Those who do not keep their commitments seem to generate justifying beliefs, such as the idea that the market’s job is to derail systems. Such beliefs are consistent with the experience of abandoning a system – right before it becomes profitable. You might take your feelings about sticking to a system to a Tribe meeting.” Ed Seykota (YES!!)

Taking profits on the way up is a counter-trend strategy.” Ed Seykota

“What do you do when you catch a trend? You ride that sucker to the end.” Ed Seykota

“Intentions = Results. They are one and the same and both occur in the ever-evolving moment of now.” Ed Seykota

“The equation, Intentions = Results, conveys no entitlements to link a current wish to a result in the non-existing future.” Ed Seykota

Trading targets are incongruent with Trend Trading.”

“Making Money in a Bull Market is like getting wet in a rainstorm.” Ed Seykota

“Meaning is subjective and may well depend upon your feelings and intentions.” Ed Seykota

“Volatility, trends, draw-downs and whipsaws are all part of the Trend Trading experience.  You might consider keeping them in your testing since the feelings they excite account for much of the actual  experience of trading.” Ed Seykota

“The Things You Dislike About Corporations are things you dislike.” Ed Seykota

“You might also consider taking the feelings you dislike about corporate life to your Tribe as an entry point.  If these feelings have anything to do with stress and / or accountability, they are likely to emerge during critical phases of your trading.” Ed Seykota

“The methods you use to define trend (to view history) are entirely up to you, so you get to define trend any way you wish; everyone may have a different idea of “the” trend.” Ed Seykota

The News can provide lots of excuses to abandon your system” Ed Seykota

“Trend Followers tend to “go with the flow” and follow their systems.  The causal model may serve trend followers excuses for abandoning trend-following discipline.” Ed Seykota

“My guess (intuition) is that you find these basic Trend Trading  requirements emotionally difficult and you are looking for a way to avoid your feelings of having to buy high, sell low and deal with “mistakes.“” Ed Seykota

“TTP emphasizes encouraging the expression of feelings and the adoption of pro-active resources in response to feelings. It does not promote any particular religion and seems compatible with most belief systems, including AA.” Ed Seykota
