The reality is that I treat trading as a job. I need to pull a certain (small) amount of money out of the markets on a weekly basis.
Changing my approach will result in 1 of 2 results. I will become rich or I will become poor. I am happy with neither. Trading provides me with a steady source of income. My best years are the years that the markets correct.
The markets have time on their side. I never want to be out of the markets so I need to maintain a very conservative game plan.
