Tackle Today: New Year, New You

January 4, 2022

By | No Comments

≈ A Fresh Start. ≈


There’s a metric that traders around the world track. Some follow it daily. Others check it weekly. Some degenerates stare at it minute to minute. It’s the scoreboard that tallies your performance, and it’s known as the P/L YTD. For the uninitiated, this all-important data point stands for profit/loss year-to-date. Whatever it looked like last week, however great or terrible, matters no longer.

It’s a new year. The slate has been wiped clean. Prior victories and defeats no longer impact this number. You’ve been gifted a fresh start.

What are you going to do with it?

2022 can be the best year of your trading career if you’ll allow it. Do more of what works. Do less of what doesn’t. Make a list of yesteryear’s mistakes and commit to never doing them again. Focus on what you can control; ignore what you can’t.

Take a new trading course, learn a new system. Expand your knowledge. Get engaged. Join our Discord channel and start sharing with the community. You’ll be the one that benefits the most.

You’ve got an entire year to build your P/L YTD to the moon. Get started.
