A faulty trading system, non-adherence to a good trading system or the absence of a trading system completely.
A faulty trading system prevents one from entering the trade at the most opportune time. A late entry causes one to miss out on a sizable amount of profit.
Not adhering to a trading system compels one to continue staying in a trade way past it’s time thereby giving back to the market a sizable amount of profit which could have been locked otherwise.
Not having a trading system is like gambling with a no limit account.
Thus, it is extremely important to formulate a trading strategy and see it through to the very end of the trade, irrespective of the outcome. Once the trading system is tried and tested and found to fulfil all the required criteria, it should be strictly adhered to.
A good trading system is one which allows an early entry and the latest possible exit. Besides this, it also has a strict point of exit with a minimum loss should the trade not go in the desired direction (stop loss). A good system allows one to lock profits at regular intervals without getting stopped out. It also allows room for re-entering the trade should one get stopped out.
Trading systematically results in minimizing losses and maximizing profits and a good trader is one who always puts the potential loss before the potential gain.
By thus trading correctly with a good system, one is able to overcome both greed and fear and becomes a part of those 10% who actually earn consistent profits from the markets.
