Finding Success

Simply put, Sunny says that traders need to settle down and come up with a strategy they can prove works, by back-testing. The people who don’t want to do the backtesting don’t really want to know the answer. Once you have a system that you trust, you trade it. It’s that simple. There is only one reason to trade and that is to make money. You aren’t trading for excitement.  Losing trades always generate more excitement than winning trades.  Unfortunately, that’s not the kind of excitement that traders want or need.  It takes approximately three years to truly find trading success.  Most people don’t make it because they think that they are going to start trading and will make a ton of money right away.  Chances are good that won’t happen.  It takes time and effort.
