A good trader is able to generate good returns on his trades consistently but a great trader is someone who can generate great returns.
If you have no idea what might be the key factor differentiating a good and great trader, this article might be able to offer you some insights to this topic.
However, do note that not everyone has what it takes to be a great trader, just like there are so few top sportsmen out there.
If you find it hard to do those things that are required of great traders, it might not be a bad idea to just stick to what you are able to do and still be a profitable trader.
WORDS OF WISDOM
There are often two competing school of thoughts with regards to making money in the financial markets;
the fight between traders who believed that technical analysis is the holy grail to winning in the markets and investors who is adamant that fundamental analysis is the only way to be rich.
Very few market participants are well-versed in both to offer an objective view to this century old debate.
However, the author of this article offers a very refreshing insights to how he became a technical trader from being a fundamental investor (clue: he did not bash one over another), and I believe that anyone who is trying to profit from the financial market should have a read.
