The longer you trade the more you will strive to simplify your trading. In the beginning you will test every strategy, time frame, indicator, chart pattern, etc. Eventually the realization will appear that you are just as equipped for success as any other trader on the planet. This awakening will give you the confidence to focus on your own trading and stop looking outside of yourself for answers. The answer always lies within.
Trading is a mental challenge and nothing more. The best systems are simple yet derived from years of experience and live market trading. In trading less is more. Trading is simple once you spend the countless hours understanding what trading really is and how you can reach the goals you set for yourself. Until then trading appears to be complex and consistent profits fleeting.
Alot of the initial angst a trader feels is due to the emotions of greed and fear which can be overwhelming. Eager to profit and scared to lose, the trader jumps into the market head first at first eager to see if this really works. After an initial period the trader goes back to the drawing board looking for answers. After all someone has got to have figured this out and if they can do it I can do it to to they think to themselves. And they are right. The challenge is learning enough about how the market functions to be able to make the proper decisions at the right time which will start to produce favorable results. In trading action does not mean profits. Action means some combination of wins and losses. Patient, deliberate action produces net profits.
