Besides skill, there is really only one thing that separated the pro from the amateur in forex and that is DISCIPLINE!
The DISCIPLINE to do what You need to do when it needs to be done. In order to succeed in forex, You need a game plan. A set of rules that You must adhere to in order to enjoy any real measure of success. Forex is a master game that isn't hard; it is just tricky and not playing with discipline is a very costly venture. The #1 No-No in forex is holding on to bad trades. It is the thing that will break You faster than anything else.
Let me simplify this for You:
Superior DISCIPLINE = Superior Success and eventually a lavish lifestyle
Great DISCIPLINE = Great Success and eventually a very lucrative lifestyle.
Good DISCIPLINE = Measured Success and a nice/decent living.
Fair DISCIPLINE = Too much frustration and lots of struggling.
No DISCIPLINE = BROKE, busted, frustrated and disgusted
When I first started sharing strategies, I was asked was I afraid that the market might start to change because of my sharing. I know that any master trader can freely share any strategy/secret and the market doesn't have to worry, because most traders don't have the DISCIPLINE make the strategies work for them.
Everyday Traders are lead into traps by Master Tricksters and it happens to the best of Pros too, but the difference is that the Master Pro will spring the trap when Her/His rules say cut, while the amateur will hold on until the market cuts the trade for them. Never let the market cut Your trade, because it will always be at a point much worst than the point that You thought You couldn't afford the loss.
DISCIPLINE is the ultimate advantage for the Pro Trader. It is the secret forex weapon that the Amateur fails to use. Traders are always looking for the holy grail of trading, well the closest thing to the holy grail in trading that I know is discipline. The discipline to enter when Your rules show that You have the advantage and the discipline to exit when Your rules show that You don't have the advantage that You thought that You did.
A trader who follows a good set of rules with discipline will enjoy success and happiness, the trader who makes exception to good rules will be frustrated, full of self pity and BROKE.
REMEMBER THE CHOICE IS ALWAYS YOURS, YOU NEVER HAVE TO STAY IN A BAD TRADE. YOU ALWAYS HAVE THE POWER TO CUT!
YOU CAN BE SUCCESSFUL HERE, BUT ONLY IF YOU CHOSE TO BE!
YOU CAN DO THIS (^_^)!
