One caveat here however; make sure you are ACTUALLY following the method as it was taught to you and not over-trading trading when no signal is present. What is your approach or method to analyzing prices and making decisions about when to trade and when not to? So, if you want to make everything much, much easier on yourself, focus on managing your money, especially your risk, the most. You always think about risk before reward. As a trader, speculating in the markets, an endeavor that is obviously very risky, it is up to you to control yourself, and this ability starts with the mental understanding of what you are doing, what is possible and what you are risking. Understand that capital preservation is really the key to money management. Mind, Money and Method, maybe you have heard of them, maybe not.
