Before I found any sort of consistency in my trading, I was fixed on finding that magical entry point that would change my life and make me profitable. I was looking for the holy grail.
Well after countless failures and disappointing results from all the "magical solutions" I could find on YouTube and google searches, I realized the secret. The "secret" of trading and investing (in my opinion), is that there are no secrets.
Real, consistent trading is not glamorous or overnight riches like they show you on the TV and social media. Real trading is building accounts over time, at a steady rate. The biggest thing that changed my trading was learning the concept of proper risk management and position sizing.
I don't do anything incredibly fancy, yet I am very happy with my trading performance. I keep my positions very small, and I look to scale accounts over time with as little drawdown as possible. In fact, once I dropped the gold rush mindset that most traders fall victim to, I actually started to achieve some positive results!
Slow and steady wins the race, or as we say it inside the VIP community: "Small positions and chill". There's no need to get rich today. This is a skill an individual can use their entire lives, and trading success is a lifelong journey.
That's all for now. It's Friday and time to step away from the charts for a bit, so I can be fresh on Sunday.
