Kill emotional trading then you have a good strategy built, i don't trade with emotions and the daily results is always profits as I'm day trading and always make sure to secure and close my profits daily, except i want to trade through asian open then i let trades run over to the next trading day. But i most close trades each weekends so i always plan my trades and trade my plans.
I think we should not follow a strategy blindly. A strategy working for one may not working for others due to different trading personality. Everyone has different psychology. In my opinion best option is customize a strategy according to your trading personality.
