Captain James T. Kirk said it:
“Nothing is unknown, just temporarily not understood.”
There is only one way to profit in the market. You must apply a systematic approach over time, compounding as you go. Don’t be so naive to expect you will get rich overnight. Remind yourself that patience is a virtue when it comes to trend following. You must have the discipline to work within the structure of your system. For example, if you can manage to make 50% a year in your trading, you can grow an initial $20,000 account to over $616,000 in just seven years. Trust that time and the power of compounding will take over if you stick with your system. You think 50% is too unrealistic for you? Do the math again using 25%. In other words, compounding is essential.
