Sometimes it’s hard to look beyond money when trading. Don’t get me wrong… making money is critical, but it can’t be your singular focus on a trade-by-trade basis or it will paralyze you.
There’s no such thing as a 100% winning strategy… or one that delivers quadruple-digit gains on every winner. If that’s what you’re waiting for then your trading career is over before it begins.
As anyone who has ever succeeded at trading will tell you, you’re going to need a little faith. You don’t know how each trade will turn out, but you need to have faith in your backtesting… training and instinct.
Otherwise, you’ll never take the plunge.
Want proof? It took me 10 years to years to become a consistently profitable trader. But I persisted.
