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.
