We're one week into the new year. Are you already trying to tweak your strategy, or your trading process, based upon a bad session or two?
Before making changes to your strategy or process, ask yourself the following questions:
1. Is the change the result of deliberate analysis of past performance, in order to improve upon a recognised deficiency or to further enhance a current strength?
2. Or is the change a result of looking at a few different indicators or settings and thinking, "This might be a good idea"?
It better be the first one!
If not, the major problem is not with strategy, but with your growth and development process. Yes, the strategy may well need further work. But without an effective growth and development process you'll likely never find the right solution.
