Warrior Trading

Why mirror trade when you can learn day trading strategies for yourself? The simple answer is no, you can’t make a living mirror trading. The practice of “mirror trading”, attempting to follow the trades of another trader, is not a sustainable or profitable strategy. In it’s core, it is a flawed concept. You will never meet a trader who has made his or her a living by simply “mirroring” another trader. Any trading service that claims you can successfully mirror them is misleading you. The problem is that you will always buy higher and sell lower because there is a delay between their alert and your entry. The margins for success in trading can be so tight that this lag time eats into profitability. Most alert services focus on feeding you alerts vs teaching your day trading strategies for independent trading. The reason I know this isn’t a sustainable strategy is because Jeff and I both tried mirror trading as beginners. I lost over $30k following other traders. And guess what? As I lost 30k the leaders were posting winners. Where was the disconnect? Due to the delay in alert delivery your winners will be smaller and your losers will be bigger.
