At least 70% of traders lose money. What do winning traders do differently?
Trading is a highly competitive business and there are many long-term losers.
The odds against us are, in fact, shockingly high. And perhaps higher than we realise.
For example, here is one unfortunate reality:
Mr. Ronald L. Johnson prepared a report for the North American Securities Administrators Association (NASAA, a consumer protection group trying to keep the futures industry honest) on the success of retail traders. In his study, Ronald L. Johnson found that almost 70% of traders lose money.
But we’ve all heard the rumours from brokers and the media. This number could be MUCH higher (90% or more) and there seems to be some truth in it.
So, what do the successful traders do different to the rest?
