Once we heave objective means of defining trade modes, taking trades, and managing losses, we should trade all the time, not just on a single trading rule. A strong set of rules should allow us to be active in all market phases. I refer to this continuous activity as a campaign, a concerted effort to build capital. - Sweeney

The average trader focuses too much on big payoffs. This is a stock market mentality, i.e., buy it and ride it to the sky, or sell it before the crash. Trading is not about predicting and catching the "big" moves. This is "fantasy" trading. It is the "lottery" approach to trading which, in the end, pays off only for a very, very few. Trading is about "seeing" momentum and positioning with it, "seeing" trend and following it.

The average trader relies too much on feel, on intuition. The possibility that any one of us is a natural market genius is realistically somewhere between zero and none. Accept that you will never be a world class athlete, sing a perfect musical note, or find a theory beyond relativity; and neither will you ever reliably predict the future. But be aware that you can know the past and see the present.

If you're going to trade futures, you might as well do it correctly; and doing it correctly means doing it intelligently. Look at reality. Futures trading is a competition. It is financial warfare. You are trading against thousands of smart, aggressive, extremely well-informed, very well financed, extensively experienced professionals. Look at the facts! Over eighty percent lose; so by definition the average trader (even the well above average trader) is going to lose--eventually. - Chick Goslin

After a man has been around Wall Street for twenty years and watches the actions of traders and listens to what they talk about, he will be convinced that the origin of man was certainly from the monkey or the ape, because the average trader simply apes some leader, repeats what he heard some great man say, believes it and applies it to his own case to increase his hopes or assuage his fears. - Edwin Lefèvre

We trade only price. We do not trade information. We do not trade knowledge (of the asset being traded). Nor do we trade computing power or expertise. We do not trade anything at all other than price: ie: the number. Therefore since the only factor that counts in this game is the price, it is only smart to focus all, or almost all, our attention on this number on the pice and its movement; in other words, what the price has done in the past and is doing in the present. Approach the game/business of trading in this manner - an up down number game where the focus is on what the price does and not why - and you will be on the right path to succss as a trader

You are trading against the wealthiest and most knowledgeable people and organizations in the world.Do not delude yourself, you cannot compete on their terms: information, knowledge, experience, staying power, and so on.Do not spend time and energy trying to figure out why a price moves.Focus all your attention and energy solely on what the price is doing.You are a trader. A trader does not get paid to understand or explain why something has happened. The question "why?" deals with the past. The question "what?" deals with the present and provides the best clues to the future. And never forget that you are trading "futures," not "pasts." Discovering the supposed "why" of a price move will provide you with little more than temporary intellectual comfort. Whereas observing and focusing on what the price has done and is doing will help you anticipate what the price will do in the future. Leave the intellectualizing to those paid for their words not their deeds, i.e., journalists and brokerage house analysts

Predictions tend to lock you into a preconceived scenario of the future making it more difficult for you to adapt to unforeseen events.Futures trading is not like betting on a horse race. In futures trading you can change your bet as the race progresses. In trading, as soon as you make a specific prediction about where a market is going, you sacrifice your freedom. A trader must always feel free to change trading positions on very short notice. And most importantly, you do not need to be good at predicting to do well at trading. If making predictions can be quite harmful and you do not need to be good at predicting in order to be successful, why bother with predicting at all? - Chick Goslin

A young basketball player is fascinated with The Shot. He doesn’t think about the footwork he needs to get to the shot. He’s not aware of position on the court or even body position in the constant tactical encounters at each end of the court. These fundamentals can make for easy buckets or, alternatively, the continual need to pull a great shot out of nowhere time after time. (As a trader, which mode would you prefer?)
Neither is the young player aware of the substitution pattern, game pace, or matchups except as he faces them momentarily on the court or while sitting on the bench. The game plan is completely subordinate to hitting the shot and not getting beaten to the hoop.It is the same in trading. - John Sweeney

Every trader will be tested emotionally, mentally and monetarily to varying degrees in his career. Most times, it’ll be extremely unpleasant and you’d most likely want to quit right there and then. Only those who can endure this kind of hardship, learn from their mistakes and persevere on will make it.

"You'll start out with the best of intentions, but you probably won't be able to buck human nature. And even if you do succeed in holding conscientiously to your long-swing basis all the way through, it will be so difficult that you won't have much fun in doing it." - Richard Schabacker

Plan for what is difficult while it is easy, do what is great while it is small. The difficult things in this world must be done while they are easy, the greatest things in the world must be done while they are still small. For this reason sages never do what is great, and this is why they achieve greatness. - Sun Tzu

The problems to which traders have set their faces have developed because their aspirations are infinitely expansible; the solutions lie in the hope that their knowledge and behavior are infinitely perfectible. In between the recognition of the problems and the acquisition of the quantitative and qualitative skills needed for their solutions lies a series of searches that must,many times, include the experience of failure.

Indeed, no successful traders I have known can follow their paths backward very far without running into failure.Its is not the act of failure, however, that differentiates the ultimately successful or unsuccessful traders.Rather, it is that the successful traders get up, spend a few days healing, reaffirm what they know, and go about the business of adding to their store of wisdom. In such a growth process the quality of persistence looms large and is virtually irreplaceable.

In the high-risk areas of the world of finance, the cold facts of probabilities cannot be changed by wishful thinking or by bemoaning the cruel realities of life.Some people win frequently and accumulate large sums.Others are destined to lose frequently and at least as a group, lose the large sums that are won by the smaller group of winners.The chance of success may be helped by thinking straight, negotiating low execution costs, dealing with a broker who observes high standards of performance, and setting reasonable goals. Regardless of their intellectual capacity and the strength of their personal discipline, however, most players in the futures game are destined to lose to the few.Those who cannot accept this truism are well advised to turn their attention elsewhere.

The person involved responsibly, both intellectually and behaviorally, with the experience of trading may, to paraphrase Theodre Roosevelt, know at his best the triumph of high achievement, but if he fails, he will have failed while daring greatly, and so his place will never be with those timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat. Perhaps, then, in the final analysis, it may be as rewarding to travel as it is to arrive. -- Richard Teweles

Most traders and potential traders are looking for rules-based trading systems or approaches. Using rules to make money is, of course, incredibly appealing; however, such cut-and-dried rules are seldom accompanied by the most important rule - a rule to connect, manage, and harmonize all the other rules. - Dalton
