Paul Tudor Jones is one of the greatest traders in market history. Why? Because he’s consistently profitable. The best “anything” in the world are the best because they perform at a consistent, superior level for long periods of time. Michael Jordan isn’t considered the best basketball player ever because he scored 30 points ONCE in a game. It’s because he averaged 30 points per game over his ENTIRE career.

Yeah! To be successful we have to be consistent in our performance over a fairly long period of time e.g over 10 years to remove any beginner's luck.

But, when you read this ads in newspaper:

"I made $7,000 in 1 day Trading FX."

"I made $30,000 in 5 days."

Do these testimonials get you thinking that it was easy? Yes, I can!

LOL

  1. Yes, this is very true..consistency for long term..
    question is...how to be "that" consistent for many years...

  2. If you use the low-risk strategy of buy before bottom and sell before top, you will find yourself, for certain periods, in the red (or lost an opportunity) vs the market value.
    So consistency need to be considered in terms of the time-frame.
    Ok to be inconsistent (in the red) vs short-term as long as can be consistent in the long-term.

    1. Agreed. Short-term losses can be overcome by long-term gains if these gains are large gains.

      Measure performance over long-term using CAGR or XIRR is the way to show.
