I agree with you on this. The strategy isn’t mine it’s a course I got back in August 2013 which the is strategy is profitable in the long run. I myself have back tested the strategy. The byproduct of the plan that it is profitable in the long run I just never been consistent and just going with the flow. This is a business and not a hobby.
The swing and day trades strategy are separate courses which the day trade compliments my swing trades . Over the years, I went through the emotions of wanting to get into trades every trade, fear of loss, greed, no plan, not taking weekly review seriously, missing trades, and treating as a hobby. And it has been a journey that I appreciate.
From 2014 and last time i Traded Mid 2016 I stopped until August of 2017. I treated it half like a business and half like hobby. I never full committed. So Far, I started to Swing trade back in August 2017 & Daytrade End of November 2017 which at the moment both are in profit for the year.
I looked within the last few months on my mindset that I missed so many key things about trading. I decided to make the Plan SIMPLE. I made it a MUST do a review weekly, trade management, and easy plan, get into higher probability trades. accepting draw-down. I was already doing evernote so I decided to make this online Journal.
Price action is much different. Plus the teachers teaching and using the strategy have been doing it for years and year with great results from students. The course make sure psychology is important.
Good Luck on your journey
