Hi to anyone who cares to read my journal. Today's trading is finished for the day. 3 trades taken in total 2 winners and 1 scratch trade. Total profit was $56.24 bringing the total on this micro testing for this strategy to $153.56.
Letting the trade come to you as opposed to forcing a trade when conditions are not optimum helps with maintaining discipline and is generally lower risk in my view. One of the main keys to successful trading is "capital preservation" which in itself requires patience. If you have a trading edge then over time you will make money so long as you stick to taking trades based on that trading edge.
