WHY CAN´T I BE PROFITABLE??!!

Every trader has got himself into a loosing trade. This is simply the part of this game. You will never be able to predict every move correctly. The biggest thing that separates a profitable trader from an unprofitable trader is actually not better technical analysis or more experience. The biggest factors in my opinion are trade management and risk management. These two components will have immense effect on your profitability. With good risk management you can be profitable even if you are right on less than 50% of your trades. Good risk management means you know where you should get into a trade so you can set a stop loss (which upon hitting it should invalidate your entry) relatively close to your entry. This makes your losing trades much smaller than your winning ones. And the result of this ratio will be seen in your profitability through time.
On the picture above you can see how one of my last trades went. I got in on the close of the candle marked with a green arrow. The trade then quickly went against me. But with my risk management i minimized the loss by closing the position when it closed below the red support line. I also put a stop(white support line) at a level that would upon breaking very likely invalidate my my long entry. Even though i took a loss i do not regret taking that trade since taking losses here and there is a part of my strategy and it can not be otherwise.

Yesterday i also posted about another trade i was playing on the s&p 500 . That trade turned out perfect. And with 50% winning rate for that day i made some really nice profit simply thanks to my risk management.
Here you can check out how it went

You can also go check out my posts from yesterday on why i was taking those trades.
