    nothing is going to happen... get off here guys.
    ICT doesn't have to prove anything, just follow his materials and see the $$$ dropping into your account, that's the proof!

    In an attempt to get this thread back on track, I'll join in on the first post:

    1. Depends on what you mean by 'trouble'.. I don't have any trouble in the 'net profitable' sense, but I totally see myself hitting plateaus in my trading that I want to bound past.

    A big one for me has always been sizing up. I have a bad tenancy to get comfortable trading a specific size on given setups, so once it's time to ratchet up the risk, it takes me a while to get used to the greater size all over again. It's like going from being emotionally disconnected from a given trade setup's outcome to being far to 'aware' that you have the trade and risk in play.. and it takes a few repetitions at the new size to get comfortable again.

    I don't trade for the thrills, as I strive to be entirely indifferent (in the emotional investment sense) to a trade's outcome.. so I'm working on ways to size up without the novelty effect of additional risk.

    2. My worst habit is trading "flash" news. I'm simply horrible at it. I have plans for trading 'post' news on specific setups (the type of news, like earnings releases, cash rate decisions, what it means, what kinda entries I'm looking for, etc..) but when news catches the market off guard and causes all kinds of spikes, I tend to get punch-happy and dive into silly trades. (An example would be the Associated Press Twitter hack that had AP's account tweet that a bomb went off and Obama was injured... this was about two years ago I think... The market tanked hard on that news and I ended up losing both on the way down and on the way back up after they reported the tweet was fake. Or TSLA recently with the CEO tweeting that they were about to launch a new 'non-car' product during the trading session's lunch hour which that causes the stock to rally hard...)

    I think this relates to the fear of 'missing out' on a good move, as I see others around me profiting from such snap reactions.. but my personal track record trading them tends to be 50/50 at best and often has turned profitable days of mine into negative days... I've been working over the last year to cut this kinda trading entirely out... At least, I want to be able to quickly classify the type of snap/flash news I want to trade vs the types I have no edge, so if I end up taking a flash news play I can have a more structured approach to it.

    3. Umm... how badly do I want the answer to #2? Of course I strive for constant improvement in trading.. else what's the point? I've taken action, as I always do, to improve and I've seen results. I often get frustrated that the results don't come fast enough, but that's just my nature (be it related to trading or any other discipline.) I just started some weight training for example, and after around 2 months I'm frustrated that I don't quite look like a pro body builder yet.. lol..

    Such a FOS clown that you're eyes must be brown! And to think that i had once respect for you.. You forgot to mention that i suggested a much more measured and interesting alternative that you left unanswered. After such a wannabe distortion of things i'm starting to wonder about the rumors of flippin' burgers at mackie d's are true..? Hey man, technically you still managing funds at a 200m firm when you arranging pocketchange in the register.. ;) you called me out, told me to name the game then you haven't reciprocated. Same with Garry. Well, just for fun, when i'm finished with my current occupation i'm presenting you a myfx that you are going to shit your plans inner circle poser! ;) and i'm not worried about you retiring before that! Knew a few guys like you! Your need to be needed will never end.. ;)

    We'll see about that.. MEOOWWW!

    Only a Pussy makes that sound, all talk and no action. Yes, a Pussy with a big mouth, a neutered Tom that can only pretend that 'it' can 'do the deed'.
