A year into trading, I have a basic grounding in S/R, technicals, fundamentals, position sizing, entries and exit schemes, emotional control, etc. What I find almost impossible is integrating them into a cohesive whole. It's sort of like trying to learn a proper running technique. If one focuses on the movement on the shoulders, then he forgets to breathe properly. When he shifts attention to that, he starts striking the ground too hard. It's all fragmented and getting in the way of consistency. A year in, I keep breaking even.
