The amount of information available to new traders is overwhelming. Some is important, most is not. Which is which? New traders don't know what they don't know. Sorting through the info is something everyone has to do.
Trading is one of those careers where you do not become proficient just because you put in more time at the screen. Traders spend years trading without having a profitable week and they can't figure out what they are doing wrong. The key to trading profitably is to figure out how markets are structured and then execute at the right levels in that structure when the order flow is about to reverse. The rest of the entries will be stopped out by algorithms.
Trading mindset is more important than strategy. Trading is almost 100% psychological. Your broker, strategy, and computer upload speed have very little significance. Your power lies in executing properly.
Early on in my trading journey I was very fortunate to come across a trader who I admire and respect and who through osmosis taught me the importance of the psychological side of trading. I was fortunate to trade live with this trader in his trading room before he closed the room and disappeared from public view to trade his own accounts. By trading live with him, reading the books he wrote, and watching his videos I was able to learn many important lessons about what separates professionals from the amateurs. This knowledge helped me to understand how financial markets are structured and what you need to do to participate profitably in the order flow. It is entirely a function of your approach and understanding of how markets work.
