Like an addict or delusional person, which an unsuccessful gambler/trader (same thing) might be, my mind was able to convince me trading profits success was just around the corner - tomorrow, next week, after a holiday, but it never consistently happened, and every method i tried I saw why it didn’t work and was no better than the last. How could it be - we do not know where price will move to or when.
But with savings dwindling, and social - economic pressures mounting, eventually I had to face the reality that this just did not work and i have no strong evidence that this can or will ever change.
So i quit trading, a person with a top 1% IQ apparently.
Sadly a top 1% IQ is neither here or there, and it has not been used.
I have just used common sense to finally conclude that i am one of the circa 90% of people who try and then sooner or later for a one or more reasons eventually quit online trading with less funds than their initial deposit/s.
Looking at the live price on a chart fluctuate up and down for reasons beyond our knowledge and control is involved, a monkey could do this, if they can keep awake through the boredom. Literally sitting in ones empty room watching paint dry would be just as interesting and socially and spiritually stimulating, perhaps more so.
My sincere opinion now, which a beginner or newcomer or fellow loser to/in trading financial markets online might find interesting is - why waste any time or effort on it, when there’s around a 90% likelihood of failure, so why even go there.
Facing reality. How much profit did i make today?
If the answer is consistently none, or a loss, sooner or later - preferably sooner, realise, why think tomorrow will be any different?
Hope and positive thinking can be good, but if they are delusional and not based in reality, not so good.
