    you only need to do two things to make it really easy
    1) de-leverage.
    2) trade once per month.
  2. clacy


    These two things have had an enormously positive impact on my trading in the past year.

    I tried futures and piddled around with forex trading both short term, but have done so much better in stocks where I position/swing trade.

    A great bull market in the past year has also helped greatly, but i feel like it's much easier to catch trends with longer time frames.

    I also am able to make much better decisions knowing I'm not leveraged.

    With that said, I have a full time job, so I would be ecstatic to make 15-20%/yr as I compound my accounts.
  3. i would argue that you need to control risk and maximize your strategies profit potential. for me that is sizing up and up and up.
