The next time someone asks you " what kind of trader are you.?" Instead of answering scalper, day, swing, tech, fund, price action, etc. I hope you will consider this label from Raghee Horner and how to pick entries and exits, by Andrei Knight.
A few months back I was watching a utube video presentation by Raghee Horner and someone asked her, what kind of trader was she: a scalper, day trader, swing trader, etc; her answer was “I’m just a trader; I trade opportunity if it’s short I trade, if it’s long I trade.” She said she’s not concerned about labels, she was concerned about opportunity.
Another quote right below opportunity is from Andrei Knight another trader who commented during his presentation when someone asked about entries and exits. his answer was; “Don’t try to pick tops and/or bottoms. . .pick profit.”
Since I felt that these descriptions fit me pretty good, I put a new sign sign beside my computer. “Don’t be concerned about labels; think opportunity.” Below that I have; “Don’t pick tops and/or bottoms. . .pick profit.” Applying these 2 concepts will give you a whole new out look about trading. It did me anyway.
Something for new traders to consider and remember. Something for not so new traders to consider and remember. Good Luck everyone
