Many new traders always wonder how they can make more profit from their trading (assuming they’re already making money). They attempt to set goals like trying to grab a specific numbers of pips per day or month.
I think it’s better to focus on the process first, rather the outcome.
One of the downfalls of setting specific “pip goals” is that it causes you to get frustrated when you’re not hitting them. You then tell yourself that you will try harder. You start to concentrate so much on achieving the “goal” that you lose sight of the actual step-by-step process you follow to hit your goal.
