Discretionary chart reading is problematic as you can’t backtest it and calculate the expected value of a trade.

Get a simulator and backtest your trading ideas to find the expected value. The software I spoke about in an earlier episode will do the calculations for you.

E = (Ave Win)(% Win)-(Ave Loss)(% Lose)
