I’ve been thinking about my early experiences in day trading and what has lead me to the strategy and system that I use today after 14 years in the business. The truth is, like most people, when I started trading I didn’t have any real structure or strategy at all. It didn’t take long for me to figure out it was not going to be a sustainable career at that pace.
As many of you know, day trading is a business of discipline, patience, and execution. To be a professional in this field, like any other field, it takes many hours of dedication, practice, pain, and sacrifice. The same way that professional athletes train their body for marathons, day traders need to train their minds for the markets.
