Also, the iTrend Indicator for MT4 does not repaint its signals once a candlestick or market session has closed. This helps the trader to take the signals as reliable and not have to worry about whether the indicator will change its mind and display the opposite signal or not.
An important thing to note would be that traders would have to employ a very strict money management strategy regardless of which set of indicators, tools or systems they choose to use. This is very important in ensuring that the trader does not lose their trading accounts in a very short time and also that the trader survives in the market.
A rule of thumb should be that the trader should never risk above 1% to 2% on any single trade as risking more than 2% becomes very dangerous if a string of losing trades occurs in a single trading day. A way to know if a trader is probably risking too much is to find out if the trader is able to set a trade and allow it to run without feeling the need to sit there and monitor how the trade is moving. if a trader cannot set a trade and go to sleep, then they probably have risked too much in that single trade. The trader must then seek to adjust their trade risk accordingly until they reach their risk threshold so that they can continue to perform optimally in their profession.
