The more you

trade the more chances of getting it wrong and losing.

 

Yep.

 

My own experience over the years has taught me to keep the number of swing trades at 5-6 max per month. For positional trades, try to keep them under 15 per year.

I still think your stops are taking most of your profit. It's good to make a profit, no doubt, but taking 3-4  full position stops

before getting the trade going, then on the 1/3 sells you have to add the points and divide by 3, that is the correct number of points realized, then add up all

the full position stops and subtract, seems like about 5-10  points real gain, not 40-50. But if that is on a multi 6 figure trade then that is worth it.
