It all boils down to if you value your own time to begin with.
If you’re sat the screen all day for 8-10 hours, then you don’t value it very much - and when you’re not at the screen, the money stops.
If you can look at the bigger picture and go in that direction, you’ll make money.
I’ve already seen people today talk about EURNZD and getting out at 20 or 40 pips loss, to some that is a smart move to others its ridiculous.
It all depends what side of the fence you sit.
I’ve found this game isn’t about winning, its about not losing - and nobody wants to lose. That’s why they’re always cutting their losses at the first chance.
Not a lot can actually make a decision and stick with it, the minute something doesn’t go your way, you’re always reassessing everything, making up new reasons for getting out.
Not everyone has the balls to ride it out.
