 The struggle is real…and the learning curve is never ending! The best advice that I can give ANYONE…anyone that is doing anything worthy and of value…is this: Never stop being a student of your craft. In this case it's the markets and trading. Make sure that you’re always educating yourself on what it is you’re investing your time into! You’ll be grateful that you did!

With that said we’re going to be talking about one of my community members' and the journey that they’re currently on. I am going to respect their anonymity throughout this blog, so I wont be mentioning their name…but I will say this, the statement that you're about to read which was typed by them is very real.

 It's a set of challenges that a lot of traders have. It's something that we all have to work on throughout our trading career. So, please read the following without judgment and understand that this is just their Journey.. and a lot of what you're going to read also was present in my trading Journey once upon a Time.

Here Is The Challenge...


“Hey J, My biggest issue has been trying to get a home run after doing so good, I always tend to take on too big of a size and like,
 8 trades later I just blow my accounts up. 
Usually after a good winning streak.

I understand I need to stick to my guns, small size etc but what can I do to help with discipline when it comes to shit like that?

Mentally, I've let go of 4 trades that took big losses recently and they all came back around within the day to either bring it back to B/E or better.”

I want to go over this step by step for you. In every sentence there was one statement that is the actual challenge at hand and that's what I want to uncover right here ,
right now. 
Let's start with the following statement

#1) “My biggest issue has been 
trying to get a home run 
after doing so good”

The biggest challenge here is that this Trader is trying to get a home run trade after a series of decent trades. Getting a homerun isn't up to the trader…it's whether or not the market is going to produce one! One of the core issues a lot of traders have is that they're constantly trying to find that home run and they're not respecting all of the little wins along the way. The home runs, intraday unicorns, will come up from time to time and most certainly when you're not ready for it. So the attitude, when it comes to Trading, is not to be looking for home runs.. not at all! In fact what we should be doing is traders are not focusing on anything other than the risk that each trade possesses. If we do a great job of managing risk first and foremost, profits will find their way to our accounts. And if we do the same thing over and over again, managing risk correctly, that large home run trade will be afforded to us as a gift for trading the correct way!

The second challenge here is quite easy but extremely difficult at the same time.. I realize that that is a huge oxymoron, but it is what it is!

#2) “I understand I need to stick to my guns, small size etc. but what can I do to help with discipline 
when it comes to shit like that?”

When I read this statement it became clear as day the challenge here is discipline. Like most traders discipline is the barrier between trading consistently well or trading consistently very well! If you as a traitor understand that you need to stick to your guns, stick to your trading plan etc then do just that there's no over thinking that should be done here. You simply follow the discipline. If you're having troubles following discipline, a very easy way to get around that is to actually Google the word discipline, understand the definition of what discipline is and then break down what it is that you are missing in the equation and focus on that before you get back to Trading. If you know for certain that you are lacking discipline in a specific area of trading or your life for that matter, that is going to be the space where you need to focus the most time and energy making sure that you make good on that lack of discipline. -Super important

#3) “Mentally, I've let go of 4 trades that took big losses recently and they all came back around within the day to either bring it back to B/E or better.”

This is also a common challenge with newer traders, and it's not the easiest thing to fix but can get fixed with time and dedication to the process. Typically speaking when you've got a trade that's taking a big loss, and the trader is taking a big loss against your better judgment, it's because you're making poor judgments with respect to risk management. There it is again, risk management! The name of the game is not profit taking. The name of the game is risk management! There's that old saying that “it's not return on capital but safe return of capital.” Please note large gains are the byproducts of correct risk management. Risk management ranges from how much size you're putting on, understanding a high probability pattern, understanding the market that you're Trading, understanding the best times to trade, where you're getting in, where you're getting out etc. Good risk management is understanding all aspects of your trade, or the edge that you're employing! When you let trades go and they collect big losses and then you cut the losses only to see them rally back ,that is a timing issue. It has everything to do with patience. There aren't enough traders that sit and wait, and wait for trade to come to them. Another big challenge is traders take big losses because they don't want to be wrong. It's extremely important to understand that you're going to be wrong as a trader. That you're going to take losses. And that being wrong and taking losses are part of the game. It's also important to remember that if you're wrong you manage your risk and you're not incredibly wrong. When it comes to managing risk, things have to be done in a very specific way. You have to understand how much size you're trading and where you're getting in and where you're getting out. There is a process that you must follow. When a trade goes against you, you have to be okay with taking losses. Your job as a trader is to be a professional loser. Great traders that have been trading for years understand how and when to take an acceptable loss. It's also very important to understand your trading strategy and know for a fact that you're upside is always going to be exponentially greater than your potential downside and as long as you have three times or more to the upside on any given trade, and you’re trading with a 50% success ratio, you’ll still have a positive yield curve. Having said that, there are still going to be times where you will run a losing streak. Point is to learn how to deal with your losing streaks correctly. There's an old saying: cut losses quickly. Learn how to do that and do it from a position of being emotionally neutral.
                
Trading is not as difficult as it seems. We as humans, the operator of the trade, tend to make trading a lot more difficult than it needs to be. The best advice that I can give you, to close this blog out, is this.. get out of your own way! You can achieve consistency with Trading. Thousands if not millions of traders already have and many more will. But the ones that succeed in trading know where they're committing errors, they focus their time and energy on correcting that error, 
and they stay out of their own way!
