I have to correct that statement. I have seen people trade many different ways. Simple works for some people and complicated works for others. Its more about finding what works for you.
lol I was expecting a reply like this.
Yes, I meant that it’s not profitable for me.
Personally I find difficult to understand the discretionary part of every trading style, my flaw is that I methodise strategies until they make me blind and I’m back again to the starting point.
I set a new rule, then another one and so on..
Aaaah shame on me
One of the main annoyances I had when I took my first steps in this world was falling prey to paralysis through analysis. In looking to find a method, I would test and test and test some more, never actually getting started.
It took a friend to slap that out of me and I think it had something to do with the control aspect, coupled with the need for it to be perfect. I think I carried that over from my sporting life and expected the same approach to work here as well.
We all know how that goes.
From there, I flipped it completely, now I may layer 10 million different options onto a potential method but then brutally hack most of it away again, until all that is left is the bare minimum to make it work.
"...coupled with the need for it to be perfect."
I totally agree.
