Today I made on demo (my secretary puts on my live account trades @ £50 per tick ).It is a psychological amygdala thing that I explained in my threads , that traders end up putting higher amounts
If he was any good as a psychiatrist , he would have told you more about psychology.He would have told you , the 2% is theoretical figure , if he was a real psychologist , he would have told that in reality , your brain is not in reality with the markets , that your primitive brain is not rational about money , it gets into a weird state when it smells money.Therefore , the 2% does not work ,just follow the 2% discipline and keep buying my trading courses from my site.
Search on google for "Weird Things Money Does To Your Brain"
I know traders who have put on larger trades ,than their system 2% set position sizes , simply because their brain command centre is shutdown or is shortcircuiting in a stress response.
try dax ,it is more volatile I find dow difficult.
try my option strategy on demo ,it will help you get 1 to 1 r r
I know you are a noob by your trades and by observing your emotional trading ..You can learn by following a master , not these 60 /70 year old blinkered pub traders , who invent the BIG JOHN CANDLE and confuse noobs like me.
So if I showed noobs £50 per tick , people like crabs , they may end up entering these amounts on live accounts instead of their usual £1 per tick.Once thoughts of £50 per tick are in trader's mind , they become reality on £10k accounts , they will blow their accounts , as D T does regularly.
