Why Setting Your Trades to Breakeven Actually Worsen Your Trading Performance 

 September 17, 2015

They assume it will give them a risk free trade.

But is this really true?

  • I’ve experienced with this scenario many times in the past as we were taught that way
    to protect our money. There are many types of saying but what you have explained sound
    logical to me and it make sense. Brilliant! Stick to the initial set up plan and be disciplined.
    thanks again for your sharing. Like it!

    • Hey Farhan,

      Yes exiting trades is a more complex issue compared to entry.

      That’s why your exits are far more important than entries.

      You’ve got to decide where to exit when you’re wrong, and when to exit when you’re right.


  • Hi Rayner,

    In my earlier days in trading , I used to do this mistake in a similar way, buying in resistance and selling in support, because I was expecting for breaking. In this video, the logical error is explained very well.

    Thank you Rayner!
