    Patrick is big on discipline.  When he taught outdoor survival skills at high elevations, he used an, “If this...then that” approach.  You need to know what “that” is before you can do it because quite literally your life may depend upon it.  While your physical life isn’t on the line, the same principle applies when investing in your financial future.  Pat tries to make his teachings fun and delivers them in digestible pieces.  Hey, don’t forget your whistle!  

    Moving Averages   

    Patrick strives to buy right, so he likes to look for a clean and simple base that everyone can see.  When the volume pushes through, you ride it as long as you can.  If there is no volume, it’s a red flag not to BUY.   Pat is a fan of these MAs:

  • 8-period exponential moving average
  • 21-day exponential moving average
  • 50-day moving average
  • Before leaving a trade

    When asked what he does during a bear market, Patrick answered with a resounding...I’m OUT!  “When we accept the fact that we don’t know the future, we see the future much clearer.”  When you start losing the 21-day, and you start losing on the 50-day, and you start to see it rolling over on increasing’s time to get out.  It is what it is.  You have to learn to believe in what you see on the charts.
