Some have said "Over Trading". What a load of B.S.
Just like being fat is a sign of hormonal derangement and a saving grace,(be happy your fat, it's saving your life) NOT the cause of the disease.
So too is overtrading a bi-product of your internal imbalance, NOT a causality.
Lets get to the REAL answer.
First, a side note. We are born into societies that have us follow rules and we conform to our higher powers daily. We are conditioned by very simple things from work, governments and schools. And we follow like sheep.
In trading; the banks, brokers, and market makers have established "rules" that are heavily skewed in their favor. Oh yeah, They act as though, and would like you to think, they have your best interest in mind. That's exactly how they want you to feel, that they are here to "help".
Don't be the fool.
Have you heard these sayings?
Don't risk more than 1-2%, Do not over trade, stack the odd's in your favor with X system, be disciplined (no such thing as discipline but that's for another day), always trade with 2:1 or better R:R, take profits while they are available, and let your winners run.
Sounds good eh? They really care about your well being.
DUDE, They are pounding sand up your Hooohaaa!!!
The truth is that all humans act exactly the same way when under stress. It's an archaic survival mechanism. Using those teachings as your guidelines to trade invokes the fight/flight mechanism.
They know with all this information being taught as the default........
YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE SLOWLY(AND SOMETIMES QUICKLY) BLEED DRY!!
The brokers and bankers maintain their casino status while your left to be the gambling addict.
Oh you say? But my system wins 85-90% so the odd's are in my favor not theirs> The very reason ALL noobs are continually searching for some new indicator or GRAIL setup. Muuuuaaahhhhaaahhhhaaaahhhaaa. SUCKER!
Anyone who uses a 9, 15, or 20 pip stop will never even trade 1:1 consistently. Your 90% win rate is in the crapper already. Check your account balance again to see if your one of the 95% LOSERS.
I'm sure you don't even have to look, you can feel it in your gut.
If your thinking about X pips per day, Win %, not over trading, using discipline, getting money back after a loss, making millions in X amount of time, ect. ect. Your a LOSER!!!!
The psychological reason your stop is so small and your thinking about these very things will never allow you to hit your tp consistently.
Oh, but, but, I can get 2:1 with a 8 pip stop and 16 pip tp easily. Go piss up a rope fella, it will never happen. Your lying to yourself and you can't trick a tricker.
Hey, hold on, I'll take some off and then let some run..........NO you won't.
Your up 7 and price stall's so you take 50% out (minimizing your winners again like the banks know you will). Then price goes +11 and all is good, before you know it your closing out with +4 on the 2nd 50% because you don't want to LOSE AGAIN. This is just before price shoots up to where you "would have", "could have" been +35.
Because of the lost opportunity when you knew you were right in the first place your next trade is taken on emotion and it runs straight to your stop FULLY loaded.
I do not have to do the math for you, all you have to do is look at your account balance......OUCH.
Losers will always trade on emotion and are emotionally connected to every penny, and I mean EVERY FRIGGIN penny in their account!!!
The banks/brokers know this. Do YOU? Yes, because you have the account balance staring at you in your trading platform.
AND IT'S NOT NEARING YOUR FIRST $$MILLION!!!$$
NO system, NO Method, NO "trading plan", NO amount of claimed future discipline, NO RULES, NO technical charting prowess, NO indicators, NO signal service, NO................ Will Ever, ever FIX YOU.
Just remember, the RULES of this business are STACKED against YOU!!!!
In a couple days I'll show you how to make all the money you could "need" with your very own DREAM setup.
Making 2:1, 3:1, or maybe even 5:1 on the $$ your willing to RISK
using A 10 pip stop and 5 pip take profit.
For those who are a little Less Greedy and Fearful (psychologically healthier) we can also show how to do it
trading with a 10/10, 15/15, or 20/20 ratio stop to take profit.
RETRAIN YOUR BRAIN
Is TRO a scalper? What about all the scalpers here like ESPIP, AJ, adbseb and others? (sorry if you not a scalper but from your posts I got the impression you were)
So they are not successful in get 2+% on their account everyday?
Have I been reading, studying for 4 years from kreslik for nothing?
Now I'm really confused.
Have you seen their acct balances. If they are attaining the success they desire then "they" are in totally different leage than to those I am referencing.
Only YOU know if you have the same difficulties as I and many others Ive seen frequent the many boards accross cyberspace. Re-read my previos post and ask urself the question.
THERE IS A WAY BEYOND THE INSTITUTIONALIZED PRESCRIBED STANDARDS TO SUCCEED.
Not all of us can be es/pip with balls of steel, or MightyOne with galaxies in his back yard!!!!!!
