the way of winning.

What is the single most common characteristic of the winners of the trading game? The winners are most often those traders who respond to markets.
So winners often seem to employ more than one style of trading; trade two
or more markets for each trading style; use position sizing to even out
The biggest winners and keepers of profits (and so many of the biggest
trading accounts) use at least one trading style requiring entry at multiple
price points - it is perhaps no coincidence that humility rather than ego is
often required for such approaches as market making and arbitrage.
