Probabilities and Math
Trading is a matter of probabilities. No matter how effective you the strategy is, a certain percent of trades will lose.
Traders make a few mistakes.
One of the biggest is to think that a trade is good simply because it looses money, and bad because it makes a profit.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
A trade is good because you followed your strategy, regardless of outcome. It follows a process that will be profitable at an acceptable risk if it’s repeated multiple times. Any individual trade can lose money though.
A bad trade on the other hand follows a process that will lose money. Think of playing roulette in Las Vegas. Just because your bet on Red 18 was a winner actually says nothing about the underlying soundness of the strategy of betting on Red 18. If you continue to do it, you will eventually go broke.
Most traders have a strategy of betting on Red 18 and hoping it works out.
Even if they do have a strategy they are not disciplined enough to stick to it.
