Why do you think this happens?
Have you already thought abut it, or do you just moan around and blame everyone else, but yourself?
I would say, you don't have a real plan. You don't have filed strategies, setups, which you have tested enough.
1) find ONE Setup/Strategy you like the most.
2) describe it in detail, how it would look like. I mean, the PERFECT one. You have to be very, very detailed!
3) find a market where you can trade it profitably.
4) prove if you can, by trading 2 Months, every day in a Demo account. Record all trades. File the screenshots and document each trade.
5) depending on the outcome, improve your setup, improve yourself in trading, or go live with as little capital as possible.
6) if profitable 2 months, don't bump up the size. Stay for another 2 months to prove yourself, that you where profitable 2 months by skill, not by accident.
7) if profitable, bump up your size in small steps.
Is this difficult to do?
No, it's not. But the point is, you must DO IT.
If you trade profitable, then you don't worry anymore getting stopped out. It's just normal, and you know it will happen. But the difference from the now is, that you know exactly how to make money consistently - you have prove in the demo account, then in real live.
Free yourself...just do it.

Which one of these do you like the most to trade?
Oh, you don't know the difference sometimes?
Don't worry, you're not the only one, period.
But let's fix that right now.
Let's start with the Pendulum Swing or...
...nope, let's start with CONTEXT.
Whenever you research something new, you need to have a context.
The context enables you to compare the new information to the surrounding system.
Let's see what I mean:
If I say, I have to put context to the new information, then this means that we just take a snapshot of a chart. We just take a certain timeframe and analyse what we have.
The result will be information in context of the current big picture.
So this is our context.
To identify all the different type of movements, we need a rule.
The rule I really like to teach as much as possible goes like this:
A Low Is Confirmed
When The Last High Is Broken
Let's see what exactly this means:
On the other side, if we look for a down moving market, then we flip the rule:
A High Is Confirmed
When The Last Low Is Broken
So now we have a rule on hand we can work with, instead of guessing what is a Swing, what is a Pivot etcetera.
We are able to identify the
Let's go back to our context, our chart and identify just what we would judge as the biggest swings on the board:
Would you agree that these are the biggest Swings, which we could call "Pendulum-Swings"? If so, then let's proceed to the next level, to the Swings, and use the same rule to identify them:
OK, there we have'm.
We already have the Pendulum-Swings and the Swings.
Let's continue with the Pivots.
Again, I zoom in a little bit more:
Usually the more granular we get, the more complex it will become.
But with our simple rules to identify the real Swing and Pivots, this task becomes very simple as you see.
And here's a fantastic trick you can use, to take out all the noise and to put the whole puzzle into a High-Resolution picture of the Market: Just Turn Off The Bars!
And here you have it, the Market in it's whole beauty of Pendulum-Swings (orange), Swings (yellow) and Pivots (magenta).
Do you have any ideas how you can use this information in your trading?
How about this:
And guess what?
This was only a scratching on the surface.
As a member (either Monthly or Annual), you will get so much more information about how to improve your trading.
If you want to become a profitable trader, then you should add to your current knowledge and maybe even throw some of it out the window...

I wish you a successful trading and feel free to share this post on FB and other SOM channels, than you!
After the rise in the VIX (Volatility Index) we saw a couple markets moving fast.
There was the S&P500 selling hard to the downside, the Russel (RUT) also bounced at it's resistance and several other markets followed.
In this Vide0 I go quickly over the following Markets:
If you have any questions I'm glad to answer.
Just send them in with the Contact form below the video.
If you think like me about the Cryptos, then this is the level to fill the pockets even more. To me this is not just a simple trade, but a campaign to accumulate at valuable levels.
With the market at balance at the Centerline I start my position to go long.
Two opposing forces:
1) the blue Pitchfork , which shows how price swings to the south and where the extremes and balance levels are.
2) the up-sloping A/R Channel, which does the same as the blue Pitchfork , just in another context to the upside.
As for targets, there are
a) the U-MLH of the blue Fork
b) the Centerline of the A/R Channel
c) trailing behind Structure
Here's a trader who is interested in knowing more about the concept of the Pitchfork. He takes the time to study and to watch the charts I've posted.
This is the first step how you learn to earn.
First, look at the chart, then read his question and my answer:
...this is what he saw when he was browsing through my charts on TradingView.com
Then he probably clicked the arrow in the chart, which plays back all the bars until today.
...and now he studies the chart and then he comes up with this question:
Interesting thinking in using the forks to find a nice area of price support/balance.
I literally was jumping off my chair when I read his questions, because I was so happy that there are still trades out there who use their one brain, and not just blindly do what the whole Industry is narrating them.
This guy may be one day a candidate for my professional services, when I need talented chartists and self thinking humans:
Here's my answer to him:
I really hope this inspires many of you too, to study the charts and maybe one day you become a ForkTrading Member too.
Because we trade on pure facts. We don't need to hurry and jump the gun. And we use our simple tools and rules, to suck out profits of the markets, stressless and without pressure.
ForkTrading means personal freedom and inner peace!
And this is what it's all about...
Have a happy new week,
As of today, our members will find even more value for the same price.
I added the following Cryptos to the Weekly Outlook and the Trade Ideas section:
The start of the new analysis will be with the beginning of next week.
This was an official Scalp-Chart analysis I made a couple days ago, so everybody can follow it live and profit from it.
The first Chart gives you the idea how I saw price moving, and where the profit should be taken (80% Chance for profit).
The second chart shows you the actual price of the EUR/CHF pair.
It's just a couple ticks before the projected price target.
This is just one example how my chart analysis method works. No, not every time. But with 80% probability I would say, we are very efficient applying our money to the markets.
If you want to know more about this chart analysis method and how I even use Options-Strategies to put some meat to the bone, then register here for free.
We reached the Profit-Target after the last post.
Now we are on the way to buy more at certain levels, see chart below.
