Hello traders, I've been day trading full time for over 3 years now. At this point in time I have experimented with multiple different models and strategies. I've experimented with manual, semi-automated and fully automated trading systems for entering and exiting positions. I've traded stocks, options and futures and used different time frames for analysis. I have to admit though that after over 3 years trying very hard, I am still unable to consistently win the day trading game. A system can work in some occasions but then in exactly the same setup it will fail and give back the gains. All in all, over time I've found it very difficult to generate revenues that would cover commissions and other costs and still generate profits. From my first days trading I never thought that trading would be an easy adventure, I knew that it would take a lot of losses, stress, humility and patience. But after over 3 years full time I would have expected that I would have "graduated" on trading and would be able to generate consistent profits, but that is not yet the case... I would appreciate hearing from experienced traders, in particular those that have been on this business for a longer period of time and I know they aren't many, whether it has been for them such a hardship to succeed in trading or maybe it is simply that you can not really consistently win the trading game? Thanks for your comments.
