I dont trade those pairs. Trading high liquidity pairs hasn't been an issue.
Intraday trading, sometimes I go the whole day without a setup. This bothers me more than it should. Trying to shift my psychic and think more in term percentage gained. In general (I know everyone is different and has their own financial needs) what do think is good weekly percentage return on an account?
There could be a few things happening.
You have a real particular setup and it can't be traded every day?
I'd go back through each day and see if you are missing trades because of paralysis.
If you are missing trades cut your risk in half and see if that helps you make the entries you should be making.
If you aren't missing trades then you are good to go and figure out how to make the best out of the trades you do get.
It always comes back to collecting data/info to test and evaluate what you are doing.
Study the market and yourself!
This is real great advise. I find myself comeback to review it few times. Thank You Sir.
What has your trading journey been like? How many years have you been trading, and how long did take you to be consistent?
Was there the turn point, when the lightbulb went off, Or was It just continuously tracking the data and trusting the process?
