The Paradoxes of Trading:
  • The longer you wait to confirm a trend reversal, the more you have missed the price
  • The tighter you set your stop, in order to decrease risk, the greater the chance that all trades fail due to random movement
  • The smaller you set your profit target, to improve chances of winning, the more your profits are eaten by commissions

The market is attracted toward large orders, you would think the market would move away from a large order

Less work (hands-on trading) = more pay.

You can't outsource confidence in trading decisions

thinking that trading with a small account means less risk and less emotion but end up taking bigger % risk of account and equal if not greater emotions after taking losses and evaluating in %

The more you learn about trading, the more you discard.
