The ultimate Domain-Of-Control through which we focus effort to maximise profitable revenue generation focuses on Trade Execution.

Trade execution is the implementation of our Trading ideas that have been synthesised from all the other Domain-Of-Control. It typically involves adapting previously standardized and stored setups to fit risk profiles, risk pressures, the potential upside of the trade, & safety/hedging measures.

When all these elements are combined correctly, they form a performance that we call “Executive Execution”.

Taking a closer look at this pinnacle domain, we must continually strive to improve our performance so that it becomes habitual, like riding a bicycle or driving a car. To achieve this level of proficiency, we focus on the following profit-strengthening performances:

  1. A standard Strategy, to exploit the proposition, idea or opportunity, referred to as the “Delta V” or change-in-value “ΔV “.
  2. knowledge of the Trades Value-at-Risk (VAR) as a function of risk appetite, account totals & previous domain outcomes.
  3. Adaptation. Tailoring the trading strategy to suit risk profiles, methodologies, asset classes, margin requirements, and account balance is critical for successful trading. This includes adjusting entry, exit, & monitoring criteria in proportion to the predetermined money management limits.
  4. Cost-Benefit Analysis. Understanding the costs involved in implementing a trade and how they compare to the potential gains is essential for accurate profitability assessment & informed decision-making.

It is this kind of diligence that can keep Traders from losing their trading stake, which too often this occurs through missing the need to focus on this performance to gain the right proficiency that tips the balance of probabilities in their favour, & thus turning iterative losses into higher probability wins they can then move on to scale.
