Seems like every unsuccessful trader tends to blame everything else except for himself, including the firm he worked at. Look at how many traders post negative posts out of vengeance against their old firms (who probably fired them after blowing capital). All the books: market wizards, reminiscence of stock op, van tharp..all mention that this is a common trait among consistently LOSING traders. To all those guys who are struggling. DON'T LOOK ELSEWHERE EXCEPT YOURSELF TO IMPROVE. You're the same trader regardless of where you work.
