    Most interesting post. I had not even considered this. Usually what I have read is to just follow the process and the market will give whatever it does but never have I thought of planning and defining my trading system as per defined needs or wants.
    Thanks again

    Good question. I have traded my entire account on one position and been lucky, other times punished severely. I always regret not getting out sooner than I did when I had a loser. Using stops EVERY SINGLE TIME (ie discipline, plan)would have saved me many times. I was greedy. Making money> not losing money> losing money. "the quick and the dead" . which one are you? The best trade I made was holding a good company for a while. For me it was facebook, still in it after buying around 75. But that is investing not trading.
