    Seems like good advice to me, For sure, I am going to continue trading my current strategy. Will hold my strategy variables constant and monitor outcomes with a view to maximising profit.. I may add to my strategy rules to improve my performance, from lessons learned over time. Certainly don’t want to be like the frog jumping from Lilly to Lilly, Feel this would only muddy the water, and land me in the mire.

    I wouldn’t say wins and losses in any strategy are random and disproportionate. I think if you consistently use the same approach/signals then the randomness is taken out. However I agree the key is to be patient and wait for your trading edge and pounce like a sniper.
    I however am still guilty of picking tops and bottoms etc when I know I should not!

    Yes, definitely.. I’m an end of day trader by nature and sticking to it. Psychologically I want to be as far removed from the trade as possible once it’s set, and I have a day job as well so don’t have the time to get more involved. After about 8 months of trading EOD I feel I’m starting to get more consistent in my predictions, just sticking to a particular set of rules and not trying to master everything.

    Absolutely spot on. I can’t tell you how much it hurt my account jumping from strategy to strategy in the early days. As always, KISS applies.
