I have a small notebook where I have through the years written down everything I heard about the trading, all of which enlightened me. I would like to share with me of these thoughts. All the thoughts should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Over-trading is your death. When you are comfortable do you miss a move and you will be profitable.
Let it turn, let the price to create the structure, then come in, with structure protection in the back. The system does not jump / customize the system you select is according to your needs.

You just need to a profit.
Listen to music during trading – know yourself. If I listen to aggressive music in the car, I will push the pedal harder.
Have a handelsdagbok.
Work on your psychology, but do not underestimate the knowledge, power. Work hard, was more confident. Most of the psychological problems will be solved.
Try everything you can in the beginning. Every market, every strategy, every style. How can you know what fits your personality if you don’t know what is out there?

Trading every day but to read a good novel once in a time will make you crazy.
