Here is the thing about the stock market
You could be wrong 10 times about the trend and lose money but you have to be on the right side just one time and stay with that trend and ride it ..
you can cover up all the losses and make some huge profits …
this is why you should study technical analysis – to identify the trend ..
please remember the following :
- you cannot control the direction of the market
- you can only decide what you want to do – buy , sell or stay on the sidelines
- never use more than 2 % of your total capital in one trade
- your total loss ( or expected loss ) should not be more than 2 % of your capital used in the trade
