    Good point harrytrader. I wholeheartedly agree with you.

    Also there's big difference between approaching trading from its potential reward and risk.

    It finally came to my mind that actually successful traders are trading risk and not reward, as summarized in lescor's signature:

    An amateur thinks about how much he can make.
    A professional thinks about how much he can lose.

    I acknowledge that I have been approaching many of my trades from the potential reward. The problem is that reward is just potential while risk is real. That was the way I was trading while trading with my client's money. And it was all fine.

    Best regards.

  6. i'm not boasting, i am stating FACT. we ALL were beginners at some point , and WE OVERCAME. we did what it took to become WINNERS. what was that you might ask..

    well first off we didn't come crying and whining "boo hoo hoo."

    we looked down deep, found a "set" of big ones, did our homework, did whatever it took, and OVERCAME!

    if we can do it why not you?:confused:

    If, as you claim, you're stating "fact", LongShot, perhaps you'd care to provide the details of whatever strategy you're following along with details of your results. Or do you just claim to be a "winner" like just about everybody else on this board?

    Sorry pal. I took you for one those boasters around.

    Why not me? Lack of money and luck, perhaps. But the whole life is a trade-off. It's my path. My only chance. I have to take it.

    I will change this sucker nickname and stop crying shortly.
