Happy New Year to all
Have a Risk Management Plan: how much can I afford to loose in a trade? A month? I stop trading if I go over the limit in a month.
Learn a trading strategy: without learning, no one can earn.
Get comfortable with loosers: small loosers and big winners make you big money. Loosing trades are part of the business. Just like tax, no trader can avoid it.
I sometimes let loosers run. They wipe out my profit.
Impulsive trading: when emotion is high, the mind is cloudy. Walk away if I feel abnormal(fear,nervous,excited,etc).
Become a better trader: Make a firm decision to improve your trading. Then, figure out how to do it.
