My Biggest New Problem

Discussion in 'Trading' started by Flashboy, Nov 2, 2007.

  1. It's always one thing or another but I do feel like I'm getting awfully close to consistent profitability.

    The hardest thing for me to overcome now is once I'm up for the day I'm too content to sit on it. I'm happy with netting 1 pt. in the ER and once I reach that I pass on plenty profitable trades.

    I'm trying hard to just trade emotionless and take every signal but it's been tough.
  2. don't worry about missed opportunities - it will have a negative influence on your trading. and it shouldn't be all about making a lot of money, its about making good trades and being a good trader.
  3. I agree to an extent. And I understand missing some good trades is as much a part of trading as is losses.
    But to me to be a good trader is to take the signals when presented and I'm not doing that.

    You don't have enough confidence in your method(s).You cannot become profitable until you do.
