One of the difficult things about trading is learning to sit on your hands and not take a tempting trade. We don’t get paid to show up and be at our trading desk. We only get paid if we are right in our selection and execution of a trade.
In order to have a high probability trade, all criteria must be met. If it doesn’t meet these criteria, it falls short of being a high probability trade and we must pass on the trade. It’s better to pass on a trade than to take a lower probability trade and lose money. It’s ALWAYS much better to pass on a trade, than to take a trade that doesn’t meet our criteria. The best strategy in a given session may well be… not to trade. The market will always be there tomorrow.
Plan your trades and trade your plan.
