The Whipsaw Song by Ed Seykota- Trading Strategies in a Musical Outfit

You would love to hear this song. You can really improve your trading strategies listening to the song and following the simple rules included in the lyrics. Watch the video below & Enjoy
You get a whip and I get a saw, honey
You get a whip and I get a saw, babe
You get a whip and I get a saw
One good trend pays for 'em all.
Honey, trader, ba-by mine.
Banjo (Ride Your Winners):
What do we do when we catch a trend, honey … etc.
We ride that trend right to the end.
Mandolin (Cut Your Losses):
What do we do when we show a loss, honey … etc.
We give that dag-gone loss a toss.
Fiddle (Manage Your Risk):
How do we know when our risk is right, honey … etc.
We make a lot of money and we sleep at night.
Guitar (Use Stops):
What do we do when the price breaks through, honey … etc.
Our stops are in so there's nothing to do.
Bass (Stick to the System):
What do we do when a draw down comes, honey
What do we do when it gets real big, babe
What do we do when it’s even bigger …
We stick to the plan and pull the trigger.
Banjo (File the News):
What do we do with a hot news flash, honey … etc.
We stash that flash right in the trash.
