Hopefully this question hasn't been covered already in too much detail, my apologies if it has. I am currently seeing some success with my trading, i.e. good control of risk, good entries, and ability to increase the scale of my trading to higher quantities of shares. That said, I have identified a key problem area - the tendency to take profits too early. For example, I was trading a stock today with clear selling pressure, and did a number of smaller successful trades, as opposed to holding/scaling up for a longer holding period. To be more specific, can anyone who has encountered this particular issue share what they did to combat this? I should mention that I have done quite a bit of reading, so I'm hoping for some personal responses. For example, I have now written out a new rule for myself, something along the lines of "wait for clear reason to sell." Thanks!
