Google “strategies for trading”. You will find about 2.1 billion results in 0.87 seconds. Read a thousand, a hundred or ten of those links and you might surely get some few almost impracticable ideas. But if you really want to know the best strategy in existence for trading, you just must take a deep breath, reflect, and do some serious self-examination.

Like all things in life clothes don’t make the man, behaviors do. Continual repetition of a good routine becomes a virtue; the reiteration of pernicious habits originates vices. Virtue is a habitual disposition of man, acquired by the repeated exercise of acting consciously and freely to perfection or good.

What do you trade for? What is your goal? What are you looking for with that? If the answer is to make money (lots of money!), pay off debts, and buy yourself a Lamborghini, you’re screwed. Even if you win millions of dollars, you’re screwed!

Virtue to be a virtue must be habitual, and not a sporadic, isolated act. It is like a second nature when it comes to acting, thinking, reacting and feeling. Having virtues of mind and character is the key to act and behave.

For you, on behalf of Plato, Aristotle, Augustine of Hippo, Thomas Aquinas and Wikipedia here you have the 7+1 key virtues that you must have when investing and dedicate yourself to see red and green candles, grids and numbers day by day .

5 Hope: it is a process of faith and optimistic spirit based on the expectation of favorable results related to events or circumstances of one’s own life or the world as a whole.

There are others who say that hope is naivety and idealism. Some say that hope is selfish.
