When I trade small and risk 1 to 2% per trade (on daily chart)I get bored and cannot handle tracking multiple positions for bigger moves. Everything seems to move in slow motion and so I exit early out of frustration When I break the text book rules and trade over 50% on a stock and hold for a couple of days, I consistently make good money most days ( with a stop below entry candle). My logic being is in an uptrend with a 60% win rate, how far can a position move against me ie. not far at all) When I go back to small position sizing I revert back to small profits and meaningless trading. What's going on? Am I wired backwards and destined for continued success by trading large? Or are the textbooks right and I am due for a big fall? This has been my observation for a couple of years. I try to trade like the masses are told but only sabotage myself. My logic is to hold for a shorter period so emotion has less time to mess with my trade.
