I guess coming from a hedge fund, everything is a contest to me, and it was back then as well.
If you’re a part timer making a side income, then go for it.
If planning to make a living out of it, you’re gonna have to get used to losses.
I’ve never seen scalpers or day traders last more than a couple of years on a live account, 3-4 years max before they are finished.
The more trades you take, the more chances of losing.
10 trades that all have a 20 pip stop loss, or 1 trade that has a 200 pip stop loss. You know which one makes sense long term.
Don’t say it in public, you know it.
