Actually it is 95%... If you do not have edge, don't even bother to compete with the 5%...

If you've read the blog already, I think you're missing the point. The number is not only irrelevant, but it's not an indication of the competition. The article explains this. It's more about why this number is as high as it is (irrespective of facts) and what it means to you.

At the end of the day, it is impossible to prove. What's more important is this misconception of this number and why so many view it as a benchmark.

If you understand why so many retail traders are failing, then 'you' can do something about it...

Belonging to the 5%, well, I don't care too much about it...

Nice article, do you think the per cent of losers is less in other markets rather than forex?

No. It is EXACTLY the same. The market is irrelevant.

Glad you liked it none the less. Hopefully it can help 'you' (generally speaking), realise what elements of trading are important.

Have a good weekend all! :)

I would like to see a real account that proves your claim that you belong to the 5%.

I belong to the crowd (95%) 😲

Let's not get silly now. I think it's important to try and remember that trading is not about being competitive with everyone all the time...

If he says or think's he's apart of the 5%, then good for him? Just focus on what your goals are :).

Maybe lets analyze why he doesn't publish his robots even here? Maybe he thought that 5% is losing :D

Hey, thanks Yohana - Hope it could help in some way?

I think the position of PSYCHOLOGY was just to re-emphasize the entire article. I put it in capitals because, essentially, that's what makes up the foundations of a good trader; being able to properly focus on all the other areas, other than money.

You are right though. Psychology is number one. But it's also 2,3,4,5,6,7... It's through-out the entire process :)

Thanks for your post.

DGilberto is ABSOLUTELY RIGHT! This is exactly why trading firms employ psychologists and there are so many books about trading psychology (just do a quick search on Amazon). On the other hand psychologists and books are useless, unless one has the adequate mental and emotional setup/foundation for trading.

Personally I DON'T. Admitting it (after reading all the books about trading psychology) was the first step to become successful in trading. How? I just quit manual trading completely and moved to the algorithmic approach 100%. No more stress, no more fear & greed, no more fatigue and staring at the monitors for endless hours. I let the 'bot' do the job, and as a 'side-benefit' I got my life back, so actually I have time to enjoy the money.

Belonging to the 5% is possible, although it took 4+ 'painful' years and 10,000+ hours for me, which confirms Malcolm Gladwell's observation detailed in his recent bestseller: The Outliers. (https://gladwell.com/outliers/outliers-q-and-a-with-malcolm/)

I understand what you mean, DGilberto.

Thanks for the link dgaf :)

That's a great article that simply illustrates: Problem > Solution as if it's some quick fix solution. The article is 100% correct, however, the application of that advice is simply ignored, meaning, it ignores to explain WHY retail traders behave the way they do.

Lets face it, that is nothing profound. In fact, it's fairly obvious stuff. When it comes to actually implementing that advice, most of the time, retail traders fall short. It's all because of this underlying factor of = money. It will catch you in the circle of doom. Find a strategy > trade it > hit a few losses > dump it > find a strategy > trade it > hit a few losses > dump it > find a strategy ... and so on....

Understanding the WHY first, will allow you to progress in the right mindset. Just my thoughts :)

Cheers :)
