My acct shows what I've been up to,
And it's all red.
I was teaching a guy how to trade because he found out that I am a trader
and wanted to learn. I exposed him to several methods. After working with
those methods he discovered he was profitable with one of the methods.
Now he focuses on that one method and uses discipline and manages risk.
He doesn't make 1000% a year, but he is profitable and loves it.
What he discovered was discipline and risk management was the top important
factors of his success.
When your discipline and risk management went out the window you lost big!
Its hard to be as good as MO, focus on being a great you. I don't make over
1000% a year like MO, but 300%+ is fine with me.
So if you started with $1000 5 yrs ago that means you have $243,000
in your acct currently.
Next year you'll be close to the aspiring fxtraders $1mil goal.
I don't believe in discipline, it's a myth.
"BE", do, have.
Takes NO discipline at all.
good luck with that line of thinking, served you well so far!
