What 1 question do i ask a trader when reviewing their performance ?
(and its not how much money did you make)
#1 - Did you Trade your trading plan to the letter on every single trade ?
if you did then we are making progress ....if you didn't then come back and see me when you can ...i dont give 2 figs about profitability until you can follow the first rule of trading
Follow the Plan
I can make your forex pair choices better
I can make your trading entries / exits better
I can make your money management better
But i cannot make you money if you dont follow the damn plan 100% of the time !
Just Give me flawless execution 100% of the time ....and you will become a profitable trader eventually
