    What my coach did for me was save me lot's of time and pain learning things that could of been avoided or altogether eliminated. You can learn from your own losses and spend lot's of valuable time making mistakes yourself or you can do what I and others do and learn from those traders who are successful. I guess it depends on how much money you have and how serious you are about making it.

    Every successful person starts as a beginner. My thoughts were if my true goal is to be a successful trader then why not learn from one. My experience was well worth the little money I paid.

    For what it's worth,

    If you do not mind, can we know more of your trading experiences and which programming language and platform do you use? Thanks!

  3. If you do indeed have a winning system as you say, and you have developed it, then we can assume that you have a sufficient familiarity with the markets to draw a profit. Your inability to do so has to do with you rather than the system you referred to. If that is the case, you may be laboring under any number of cognitive distortions including the need for perfectionism. To address these personal lissues, you may wish to read David Burns's The Feeling Good Handbook. Dr. Burns is a psychiatrist and something of an authority on cognitive therapy, which is noted for its relative simplicity and effectiveness.
