Today, I wanted to illustrate how a trading day can turn into a 4.0% loss of your $119,342 account.
I have listed several of the mistakes traders make on a daily basis. In the past 2.5 weeks, I have been showing how to trade properly and follow the plan and respecting the rules exactly. When a trading plan is written with clear steps and rules to follow, it is possible to stay on the right side of the market fairly frequently.
For new traders following a plan on paper is the first step. You must learn about yourself as a trader and it is critical to paper trade several scenarios including winning and loosing, small and big time. Notice how you feel psychologically and how you adapt to those feelings. Then consider if those trades had been live, how would the results of those trades affect your daily life. How would your significant other react to your losing trades? what would happen if you have not only a bad day but a bad week?
Experience matters. You must invest the time to study and study for months and even years. Personally, this is my third year studying futures. Otherwise, do not waste your time starting to trade futures. You must treat futures trading as a business.
This is a job and it is the opportunity of a lifetime, you decide.
IF ANYONE TELLS YOU THAT THEY HAVE A PROGRAM TO TRADE FUTURES AND THAT IT HAS 90% PROBABILITY OF PROFIT, DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND RUN!
