Did I tell you Trading was 80% mindset?
I’m sure I have…
Today, USDCHF gave me another short signal…
The last two have failed and been losers (only small losses though, my system ALWAYS keeps my losses small!)
So as I saw the third setup happening, that feeling of “it’s going to bite me again” was lurking in the back of my mind.
But, I have to take the trade. This could be the one where I catch the trend and gain a large win.
That’s why we take EVERY trade.
Even if the last 7 or more have been losing trades.
What made this trade even harder to take was that it moved a lot as it gave the signal, making the entry point way below an ideal entry.
But, still I knew I had to take the trade.
If I’d missed optimum entry, it doesn’t matter. No trade will ever give an optimum entry.
It will go one of two ways.
Profit or loss.
And I know if it’s a loss, it will only be small.
If it’s profit, it could be huge.
So I took the trade.
Ignored the fear.
Stuck to the rules of the system.
That’s what the successful people in the past have done… so that’s what I shall do too!
