I agree with your decision. The No. 1 secret of long-term success in this business is capital preservation. We should ensure we have the capital to trade the opportunities that may present themselves in future rather than burn the capital stupidly today. If you use your break to learn one strategy, at most two, and focus on mastering your system well, by patiently waiting for the right signals and letting the market meet your entry criteria, you would do better when you return.
Learn to trade safe and prosper.
