Joe Ross posted a link on twitter with title ‘A simple Idea to improve your trading’. I thought it is a good reminder to all my readers here. And I certainly agree with the quote below, and being disciplined in trading methodology execution was and is the key of my consistency.
I feel certain that my discipline in executing each and every trade according to my trading methodology is the secret to my success. If you want to improve your trading, what you need to do is very simple. Before you enter any trade, imagine that you will have to explain this trade to a panel of your peers, by explaining to them the reason for your entry, your money, trade, and risk management guidelines, and why you exited the trade. Imagine having to explain why you chose this particular market and this particular time frame, along with how you set objectives for the trade, and how you determined where your initial protection would be. If you can truly do this, I strongly believe that you can be successful.
