The Mindset of a Professional Trader

There are two types of mindsets. One that is the opposite of the mindset required for consistently successful trading while the other the mindset of professional consistently successful traders.

How to remain Consistently Profitable - Control Drawdowns

33% winners 33% Break Even Trades and 33% losing ones.Winners are Twice as big as the losers. 
You will get 5% on average per T20 (risking only 1% per trade).

The Setup shows you where to put Stop Loss, Where to Take Profit and Where and When to move Stop Loss to Breakeven.
