A lot of what you read about what happens to day traders is true. (There's also a load of crap, but that's another thread.) From the undercapitalized trader failing trying to trade with scared money, to not following the rules of a profitable trading methodolgy/system (emotions get in the way) to patience being the ultimate virtue etc. What about the cliche about a methodology/system needing to change with the market - the methodology/system won't last forever ? Being that I am going on 6 months of profitable day trading (finally after 1.5 year of losses/breakeven) this question is of course in my head now. Being that you also hear that trading is boring, I will assume that this is because you follow your rules and trade a routine day after day, week after week, year after year ? I think this is because a method/system is a method/system that works year after year. So, what experiences are out there with using the same method/system for years or finding a method/system that only worked for a stint ?
