I said I have never taken a bad trade. That post sparked a few conversations and the best imagery I can come up with is an animal trap. (excuse the photoshop)
Every trader puts themselves in a bad position at some point. This position makes the reward look great no matter the risk. Or they do not see the risk at all. Easier said than done, but each trade should be taken independently of the previous one(s).
