What's more important: Trading Method or Trading
What's determines success in trading:
- A successful methodology
- Psychology and discipline?
But this is not a "chicken or egg" dilemma. Clearly in this case method comes

trading methodology, then you will lose money.
So method is more important.
Well, maybe "more important" isn't the right phrase to use. But it definitely
The reason I say it may not be more important is because there are many valid
trading methodologies available. Yet ironically, traders keep jumping from one method to another
- one indicator after another

away. You simplify until you find an approach that works for you.
Then you simplify further by eliminating your mistakes.
Someone once told me: "Successful trading is simply a business of not making
We're not aware of how many mistakes we're making until we keep a trading log of
every trade, and then review it every day and again at the end of every week.
