Should morality play a role in your trading or investing?

When trading, I use a technical trading system. This system is solely based on the numbers shown on the chart. Those numbers are filtered by other tools in the software, but all calculations are based on the price and volume of stocks in those tracked indices. In trading this type of system, my job is to scan an index. If the system says that the trade fits all requirements, I go to step 2, which is following the systems parameters...

Account size is a big issue when it comes to trading.  A larger account gives you more freedom as far as trade frequency. On the other hand, a large account can also just mean more money to lose over a longer period of time if your risks...

Accepting Loss

  One of the fundamental principals of trading stocks, or anything for that matter, is; you never play with money you cannot afford to lose. You should not be trading money needed for car payments, rent, food, diapers etc. The reason for this is, no matter how sound a system or piece of advice may sound, trades often go against you.
