As crazy as it might sound, losing is an integral part of winning for any given trader, as the two are inseparable.
Learning how to lose properly is something every trader must be able to grasp, if they must consistently be in the greens.
Pro traders also lose money, and this is a reality that should sink. Obviously, they understand that it’s just part of the “game”.
Regrettably, a lot of traders accompany each trade with an incredible fear that is followed by deep emotional attachment – an obvious recipe for disaster.
The Chandelier Power Stops forex trading strategy is designed to curb losing while maintaining profits at the same time.
It is able to do this by combining the ChandelierStops_v1 (that spots trend exhaustion), Bulls Power (gauges bullish trend) and the Bears Power (gauges bearish trend) indicator.
