DislikedFor me the following things improved my trading, but the strategy I'm using is highly discretionary, so it is according to that. 1. Trying to make too many fixed rules. Any fixed rules like "trade with 2:1 RR", or "use a 20 pip stop" has hurt my trading. 2. Worrying about statistics too much. Like if you have a 60% winrate, that doesn't mean you'll have 6 winners out of ten. Sometimes you can have 90%, other times 30%. One trade, one day, one week, even maybe one month of results doesn't mean much. 3. Tampering with the rules after a loss or losses....Ignored
You are so right, especially about point number 3. I usually just try to take the loss and move on but sometimes I can't help myself and think about "oh, if I would have done this, I could have profited from that trade." Or, I instantly think something is wrong with my strategy, I try to change something up immediately. You just have to stay disciplined with your method and have confidence.
