I've been trading fulltime for a month. This is my 5th week. Just made the jump to 200 shares. In no way have I figured out the markets, or found a holy grail, or find my trading absolutely perfect. But it has clicked. I feel like it just suddenly clicked. I feel as though I've put together all the pieces to the puzzle......Meaning I've understood the in's and out's of price action within my system well enough to be profitable. Pyschology ? Not perfect....definitely holds me down at times.....but the key is price action. Many traders have a problem of letting profits ride. Well I had that problem. BIG time pyschological barrier. Prevented me from making big money, especially in the mornings where trends seem to be more prevalent. Was exiting based on emotion. Even when I tried to exit w/o emotion, I still did it. Focused, still couldnt do it. Then I began to see patterns within the trend....the way price is moving. I am starting erode the barrier of pyschology and emotions by getting a firmer grasp for how price moves. I still have much much more learning of price action to go. But today it just hit me. I know I can become consistantly profitable now if I just watch how price moves and adhere to my strategy. I think many traders fail b/c they haven't reached a certain level of understanding of price. Once u understand price action, the emotional aspect begins to slowly wither away. Definitely not completely, but enough to prevent disasters. I know I'm babbling, but I think this is an important step in my trading career. I feel like I've reached a 'level 2'. A step where I feel many traders never reach. This is definitely a turning point. Thoughts anyone ?
