As strange as it may sound – never count the money while you are holding a position.  Your aim should be to get in and out of a trade at the right time.  The moment you start counting your profits (or losses) while in position, the probability of the trade resulting in a loss increases exponentially because the mechanisms of fear and greed activate in your subconscious whether you like it or not.  Try asking a good carpenter or a good doctor how much money he made today, and there’s a good chances he won’t even know.  He’s too busy concentrating on doing his job right.
