1st thing to do is stop reading threads like this.You will find what works once you start with people that do it consistently.If you are taking piano lessons you would not want from a person that can't play correct? Why is forex different?
Threads like this drags your spirit down...why Forex forums can be toxic.Clean your mind and follow people who do it everyday.Adapt what you like and continue learning.Green journey

{quote} so was it a beer that was responsible for your failure? lol. How did u succeed?

dropped expectations completely .. that's the main thing I guess.

I was like "I want to make 80%/ year, AT LEAST!!"... never got there, never worked. Now 5% in 7 months seems a miracle...

basically it's not how much I make but how much I appreciate what I have that makes me feel successful.

Setting high expectations drives you to get there. 5% in 7months? You are safer just quit. With such uninspiring gains you must be doing lot of things wrong.Why don't you address the shortcomings and work at it.
You are not successful and don't screw your brain mediocrity for excellence.There is vast space in between.
This is not an attack post more like someone hitting your head to wake up!

Well Davit I cannot force my systems to work well all the time, we are at the mercy of the market you know..

BTW dear davit, I don't believe you made all those money in .. about 2 years?

you were once a "naive" guy : https://www.forexfactory.com/showthr...53#post8811053.

then you discovered pivots , started small and now..... 20/k month.. in 2 years.

anyways you're still entertaining at times.

indeed, just a few thoughts...if we have nothing to gain (except risk awareness, humbleness and therefore gratitude).. every little gain looks big. vic3 versa if we have everything to gain, every little loss looks big. "zen trading" rulez

It's not an easy journey. It takes people close to a decade or more of striving Nd you might never make it. I sympathize with him rather, he is a brave warrior.cheers

5% in 7 months!! Please upload your charts. So people can learn from your mistakes.

Actually it is very good result. The best result I got was 100% with 30% DD in 10 years from backtesting. But for me this result is not worth to trade. If you get better results now, wait a year or two and one day you get margin call. This is the reality for 99% of traders.

Something going wrong with you .. Maybe the coach or the way you learnt about the forex etc..
Anyway keep going and don't give up .. Losing is a part of a winning journey.

If it is a good result then no need of trading. You can do other things or at least give that time to your family. At least they will be happy.

How says the market is less volatile? Some pairs are volatile but all the pairs are not volatile. Why will u trade gold? it is crazy. It may go against you anytime with its high swings. To be consistent you can trade with slow pairs (that is less volatile). Gradually you can move on to volatile pairs.

if you stay in here you will lose more 8 years and you will stay not wining

they are professional actors, they give you hope more and more, so you lose more and more
i give you their lies cycle thats what i call it
its like this, first a promising thread with a lot of fake activity to make it viral , second a promising performance, you try you start believing then you start losing and ask question or blame them, and immediately they start giving you some filters like be smart or try a better mm or learn some basics and then if all tricks and filters get through you they will blame you cuz you are not a good trader at the end they will just ignore you and ban ban ban

sweet lies cycle
