when I see traders saying, 'look at this guy who stacked, increasing his account by 20-40% in just weeks only to get stopped out!'
It works like this:
say that you are trading 2 lots over 30 pips, stack to 12 lots, & liquidate 10 pips from your position getting stopped.
you might think 'what a fool, he started with 30 pips of space and now he has 10 pips!' but in reality he made 2:1 getting stopped out with a small profit!
His downside is the same as yours, his worst trade is your best trade, and his best trade is your wet dream.
A dark mind can only see dark things, it focuses only on profit so it will only see loss.
An illuminated mind sees the pitfalls, it focuses only on loss so it will only see gains.
The ZL is not just a line, it is a mindset.
We're back to fear and greed aren't we?
