Honestly, you should probably just empty your head of some of that stuff, and just start developing your own method. For the most part with my trading, I’ve just been doing my own thing. I’ve read some snippets here and there that have filled in a gap or two, and learned a couple of things from a friend at work that trades stocks, but my methods are largely my own as far as I know. There probably are other people out there doing the same things, but I haven’t been searching for them.
IMO, if you’re relying on other people’s methods, you’re not relying on your own methods. You’re not the one trading your account, it’s almost like other traders are trading vicariously through you.
My suggestion, take a break from live trading, and get back to practice for a bit. Also, if you haven’t been doing it already, take a few currency pairs, and focus solely on them. Pay attention to how they move, and how they react to certain conditions. Don’t try broad-based methods on whatever pairings you can find. Study the charts of a few, and learn them inside and out. Once you’re good with that, THEN start live trading again.
