We can choose to define ourselves as traders by the trades we take.
This is not about the money we make.
Rather it’s the place within the setup that we enter.
Do you require more confirmation, content to give up some gain in exchange for safety?
Or do you jump in early, aggressively jumping in pre-breakout in order to maximize every inch of the trade?
One is not better than the other.
However, you must know which type of trader you are and adjust your trading style, risk management and expectations accordingly.
Define yourself as a trader.
