Hi John, this may seem strange but is it possible for the average non professional trader to actually make money trading?

I have read many books including your own I have been to seminars done online training and covered the art of technical analysis ranging from simple support and resistance to Murray Maths at best all I seem to do is break even I just can not get in front ?

I don't consider myself the brightest star in the universe but I am not the dimmest! The problems seems to be I lose when my stops are breached and then my winners are merely making up for my stop losses, I have given up on scalping that seems hard work and being at the screen for hours looking for opportunities so I have tended to opt for swing trades over several days but when my stop go that is the pain it is frustratingly when I move stop losses to what I consider is market structure only to see the market go the way I wanted it to or be stopped out and the trend change.

I have been practising this trading game now for about two years, I knew that it was never going to be easy and I have proved myself right.
