Breaking Bad

Trading will always be hard work and challenge your inner child, demons and anything other bullshit you have living in there but it doesn’t have to be impossible. The single biggest thing you need to drive into your thick head is that bad habits kill your account and once that’s dead so is your career. Find a stock, find a level, have a solid setup and trade a series of trades measured over a course of at least a week. Don’t even consider taking any trade that doesn’t align with your edge. Consider all trades outside your strategy as bad trades. Whether these ideas work or not is irrelevant. Bad habits can’t be reinforced in trading and the number one bad habit is taking trades outside of your edge.

The first step is to define what a good trade is for your style. The trade should have a reason, criteria for and criteria against. This should be written and used as you trade everyday. If you do anything else you are reinforcing bad habits and aren’t ready to progress. Let’s all start breaking bad and become ready for the next level in our trading career.
