Hey everyone. So as promised here's the first installment of videos looking at some of my bad trades this year. A great opportunity to reflect on poor decision making and ways not to do things in the future. A good habit to get into, something I don't do enough myself but plan to going forward. [...]

This is the most fundamental rule that I believe makes a trader profitable and achieves consistent trading profits. Some believe that you should focus on your right/wrong percentage.
