The Winning Trader


The successful trader knows that every action he takes is his/her action. You will never meet a successful trader who is looking to blame someone or something else for his or her losses.

This is a critical step in understand how to become a successful trader because until you take complete responsibility for all of your trades, you will never feel comfortable with your system and you will never reap the rewards.

Additionally, when something goes wrong with a trade or an investment endeavor, the traders who take complete responsibility for their actions will look at those "failures" as learning experiences.

The trader who takes responsibility will try and determine what went wrong and what needs to be done in order to avoid similar mistakes in the future. The trader who does not take complete responsibility will simply say "the market wasn't right" or "my broker is an idiot".

That trader will likely make the same mistakes again and will never understand why he/she cannot win in the Forex market. This step is critical.

Before all else, you must accept everything that you do as your responsibility. The game can only be won out of luck if you don't follow this first step.


Every successful trader, investor, money manager, etc. has a system that perfectly fits his or her ideals and personality as an investor. The system really doesn't matter, it's secondary.

Value investors like Warren Buffet have made millions with their value approach. Day traders have made millions with their system.

I have colleagues who have made millions with momentum investing. So it can't be the system per se.

Instead, it's the fact that those winning traders have discovered and developed the system that fits them best.

If you are a very worrisome person who absolutely cannot take losses without getting ulcers then I would not suggest day trading as part of your system.

On the other hand, some investors would go crazy if they had to hold on to it for a month or a year.

So how do you find a system that works for you?

You have to work backwards by discovering what your objectives are!

What annual rate of return are you looking for?
Do you want to trade full time or just leisurely?
Would you get stressed with daily gains and daily losses?
Are you extremely patient with your investments?
Do you need to make lots of decisions?
Which trading systems do you know and feel comfortable with?
How much research have you done?

There are so many questions to ask yourself because it is absolutely vital that you choose a system that really works for you.

If you are not comfortable with your system then you will always be tempted to break your rules. Your health will likely suffer as much as your portfolio.

see here what trading system I have.


The point of this rule is that you must develop a system that is right for you and then stick to it no matter what. As a result, your plan must be able to cater for every eventuality.

Once you put your money down then you no longer can control what happens. You won't know what the prices will do so you can't worry about anything except following your plan.

What will your entry be?
What will your exit be?
What happens if there is a floating loss in your account?
What happens if the price gets close to your stop order?
Do you see what I'm getting at? 

You don't want to have to answer these questions AFTER you put your money down! You want everything to be automatic by that point.

So make sure that your system plans for everything. Then you just need to follow your rules and you won't have to think (or stress) at all.


In other words, once you have put the time and energy into determining your system, your work is not done. You have to constantly evaluate and assess your system via education.

Now, I'm not saying that you have to worry about your plan every time you make a trade. That would contradict Secret number 3!

What I'm saying is that if you were a brain surgeon would you stop learning new techniques and new technology after you finished your internship? I certainly hope not!

Hopefully, you'll keep educating yourself so that, at minimum, you can keep up with the changing times. At maximum, you keep improving until you become one of the best.

Keep learning ... even when you think you know everything there is to know about investing.


The top traders know that it is the discipline displayed in following their rules that make all the difference. If you do not believe in yourself and your system then you are going to have difficulty following your rules.

Following your rules is the most important aspect of successful trading. But even if you do follow all your rules, if you are constantly doubting yourself then you aren't going to have any fun at all, plain and simple ...

You will be miserable!
