So you have found a trading system that you believe will take your trading to the next level. You have heard others talk about it and the success it has brought them, so you are sure that it will for you. You completely scrap your current trading plan and prepare to start finally winning trades and turning a profit. Finally the big moment arrives and you take your first trade and you lose. So then you take another trade and you lose again. All of a sudden the system that you thought would change your life is shaping up to be a disappointment like all the others. You then decide that this new amazing system turned out to be all bark and no bite so you get rid of it and resume your hunt for the system that’s going to change everything. Does this sound like you? If it does then the systems may not be the problem after all. Maybe it’s you.
You see if you’re the type of trader that’s constantly hopping around from system to system then you are severely hurting your chances at being successful. How do you ever expect to become a good trader if you never stick with a method long enough to learn it? Contrary to popular belief trading isn’t plug_and_play. In order to be profitable with any method you are going to have to invest the time it takes to learn its ins and outs. I you may not want to hear that because every person that come into this business wants to start making money as soon a possible, but that’s not how things work because if you rush into this business you will end up depressed and with a empty trading account. So before you declare that your chosen method doesn’t work and decide to start looking for a new one make sure you have given yourself to truly understand it and its implementation.
