  1. No matter how good a setup looks to be DON’T overtrade on any one setup. That is the lesson from my recent losses.

  2. Very informative.

    Trades can be classified into Good Trade, Bad Trade, Profitable Trade and Loss Making Trade. Good Trade need not be always a profitable and a bad trade need not be always a loss making. As long as the trader follows his research and knowledge based strategy and its rules religiously. every trade can be considered as a good trade.
