You have to be the servant of the market, to get paid when she decides to. you cannot expect to jump into the market anytime and reap gains out of it. It just does not work this way. If it does, everyone should just quit their jobs and make a living off trading. Waiting is perhaps the most difficult part of trading and if anyone tells you trading is easy is lying. The earlier you understand the importance of patience and the more you can practise it, the less you lose and the more you gain. Like what [bWarren Buffett says, “the trick is, when there’s nothing to do, do nothing.”[/b Opportunities do not appear all the time. A good trader will wait for the best opportunity while an amateur trader will make a trade whenever he/she perceive there is one.
