this goes out to the traders around that have been trading profitable for a longer time already: 1. what i would find very interesting is how many trades did it take you to turn around and become a consistently profitable trader? i guess this number would be much more indicative than anything else (time needed / money lost) - since everybody trades different sizes and makes a different number of trades per day/month ... 2. after you have become profitable - how did this change your attitude and your emotions? more pressure (because of higher goals)? less pressure (because you know you can make it)? are you trading more relaxed since then? are you trading with less fear? what else has changed for you? please tell - any answer is greatly appreciated!
