$CTRM EDUCATIONAL POST ( 1 ) @everyone The reason why most people don't succeed at trading - even after they have learned the markets and how they operate: Mindset ** Perspective, mindset, expectations - these are the three things that are stopping you from becoming a successful, consistently profitable trader. Firstly, most traders that fail are in it with the perspective of geting rich fast. This is especially dangerous for those that come in with this mindset and experience temporary success in the beginning. They simply made a few moves that didn't respect risk management, got lucky, and ended up being in the profits right off the bat. This will teach your brain subconscisously that it is OK to do what you did, even though it is not correct. Building proper habits, starting small, and grinding your way up until you are consistent is the KEY.
