How I trade is a simple thing. The best way to trade well is to control the mental side.
I am a contrarian price action intraday trader.
I scale into my trades with a top down approach from monthly/weekly.
Look for good setups versus daily levels and entry off the hour, maybe down to 15 min if I really want to watch for the “shakeouts”.
But this usually is the type of thinking that is like trying to save money by driving to a much further away gas station to save a penny per gallon. When your bigger problems are all the other things you spend money on.
Really simple setups, why complicate things? I use naked charts even, TA didn’t help any of my relatives with stocks, etc or the guys I learned forex from.
I do read a lot of macro trends and news each morning, and read Bloomberg/WSJ/reddit.
I have no ulterior motives, there’s tons of people who trade better than I do/make more money.
I am still learning and improving.
I just got comfortable trading over a $10k account size in 2020.
