    Take out the "if" and keep it your head as a "do", or "Now that I maintain discipline every day I trade very profitably!!"

    There are only 2 steps to great success:

    1. Find a profitable system (preferably as simple as possible)

    2. Follow it religiously without hesitation.

    Best of luck

    Ahh, excellent. Yes, one of the very first ways to change the results, is to change the vocabulary and the attitude.

  3. chewing tinfoil and shaving my head with a cheese-grater breeds discipline. I want to stress though, that this method may not work for everyone.

    ... in addition to being good for shaving my head -- I also use the cheese-grater for some of the hard (AND "FINE") cheeses that I supply to Mr. Market!!

  4. And what made you think anyone wanted to see that picture?

    Until I get that thought out of my head, my teeth will be very sensitive. :)

  6. for the most part, I swing trade just one stock. occasionally I scalp, but since I've studied this one largely traded issue (average daily volume of 34 million per shares)....

    With that in mind, I set my alerts for certain ranges, whether it be shorts on the high trading end or buys on the long ends.

    My best trades come when I stay close to my rules and alerts. Occasionally during the work day, I fine tune these.

    I say what others have said earlier, stay disciplined, and losing money should be a learning experience that you hope to avoid.
