The Business of Trading and Other Matters
I’ve said it several times throughout this book and I’ll say it again just to be sure you get the point: You can’t buy success. You’ve got to earn it through education and experience.
YOU CAN BE A SUCCESSFUL TRADER You know the odds are stacked against you being a successful trader. You’ve read the statistics from many sources about how a very high percentage of traders drop out or go bust after just a few months. But you do not have to be one of them. If you apply yourself to learn to trade, you can be successful. Go about it in a businesslike manner. Study, evaluate, review, develop a trading plan and gain experience. Don’t make the mistake of most new traders and overtrade with too large a risk for your account size. Consider trading unleveraged markets until you have developed a trading plan and tested it out in real time. While I can’t make any promises or guarantees, if you apply the strategies you’ve learned in this book I believe you will have great success. If you are already an experienced, successful trader, incorporate the strategies taught in this book into your trading plan and your results should improve, maybe dramatically.
