Why Traders Fail:

Planning Your Way to Success

Trading and investing is the most competitive business environment. Yet, most people begin trading their own money without any thought to planning, management and control. The planning process should be applied in two different areas: planning the business and planning the trade. This book provides a tremendous advantage to those who are interested in trading and investing by planning as a business and then planning, managing and controlling each individual trade position. If you want to turn you investing around or improve on your performance, this book will provide the path to achieve your personal and financial goals.

Proper planning for the business and the trade will give you an edge over 90% of the other traders and investors who neglect this very important ingredient to success.

OUr History

Joseph James LLc

Joseph James LLC and Joe Mertes have formed over sixty investment partnerships. The purpose of those partnership was the acquisition and development of various investment business entities throughout the southeast.

It has always been the vision of those entities to enhance performance, provide for needed development and for a fair return on investment. Those entities offered the ability for investors to provide capital in their local communities and participate in the eventual development and growth of those communities. Additionally, they offered much needed financing for turnaround situations or needed development in the communities in which they existed. Finally, private funds have been formed for the purpose of investing in publicly traded stock and other short term obligations with the goal of producing above average returns.
