That is the typical cycle of breaking your own discipline in trading rules. First you swear to yourself you would never run a stop. Than it starts out you rarely do it anyway and are very upset about it. Soon rarely becomes sometimes. And when sometimes turns into always you are devastated on the ground not knowing how you ended up here with all these good intentions. This can go...

The founders of Midas Touch Consulting meet regular to measure the highest probabilities of the future market. We focus at the big picture. Usually, the latest and greatest, meaning recent events  shape and reshape this outlook. Not this time. Quite the contrary.
