DislikedWith this "short cut" attitude you are doomed in this business. My recommendation is to forget trading and find something you don't have to study and can therefore get to the end before you start at the beginning.
Snakes and ladders or tiddlywinks are both very good options but don't try Monopoly as you may have to study a little to find the best properties.Ignored
Still in the path of learning curve, but my bad habits betray me very often. So, reading and understanding the thread is a must, coz confidence grows with time and practice.
I feel under pressure to trade coz trading is an important part of my income now. But I dont have the confidence and the knowledge (yet) to fully apply Strat's teachings to my live trades. Slowly learning.
Undestanding few concepts here had lead me to improve a lot, but my fear to change dont allow me (yet) to get rid of indies (Sorry. Too many years using them.) So, for my mental confort I have tried to put together some, using what I have learned so far in this thread.
Studing charts, this show me a gain of at least 1.000 pips almost every month in the pair I trade, with little drawdown. Maybe this will cause a big laugh to Strat, but is a good improvment for me, for I am very grateful.
I think thats the real purpose of reading the thread: have time to get rid of bad habits, gain confidence and mentally accept the change.
Strat: I will really love to hear how you do your money management.
Since I have mention indies, here is the chart ( with a little embarassment)
