Once you have identified your long term trading goals, you can make an effort to focus on what you would like to achieve each day. This will also help you to eliminate distractions that could move you away from your targets.
Spend time planning your entry points, exit points and objectives. In addition, testing, evaluating, adapting and re-testing may prove useful when it comes the search for an optimal strategy. A well-defined strategy created before entering a trade may also help you avoid potentially bad trading decisions based on emotional reactions to sudden market movements.
