How many years would you spend for being a good engineer or a good doctor?
You need to read a lot and work very hard for years, even for decades, isn't it?
As an engineer ... for me, there is no difference.
I can not understand why the people think that they can be a good trader in a year or two by only doing some exercises on demo accounts.
You can name it as habit or something else ...
In fact, it is to read a lot and to work very hard for years, even for decades.
There is no other way for being a good trader.
Make daily trading habits may be we can do but many we see especially beginners only think of the benefits alone while not want to build a strategy that will be used so they do not last long in trading.
Profit is important because that's what we are looking for, yes as you said earlier, just thinking about the profit alone is not good but if you analyze or improve the strategy for good use it is better because the profit will follow.
Their must be passion in what you do in trading, because if you just do it for money then the interest to this profession will eventually die down, trading is a tough profession that if you dont have the passion it will be impossible to be motivated after many fall, becoming successful in this market can take years of constant learning and practice before you become a professional trader.
