"In short, if you make money in your trading, stand up and accept the accolades and the financial rewards. But if you lose money, you alone should accept the responsibility. You must have confidence to trade in the marker, because the most serious 'loss' of all is the 'loss' of
confidence in your ability to trade independently and successfully. If you don't have that confidence, you probably shouldn't be making any trades, except to close out adverse positions to limit your loss exposure. The list of speculators' laments goes on, but they all seem generally
related to carelessness or poor trade timing, misjudgement of the market trend, ignorance of the basic tenets of sound strategy, or lack of self-confidence and discipline. Serious introspection suggests this thesis: a sound strategy, viable tactics and good money management, and
consistent risk control are even more important to overall success than a good technical or charting method."
