Among a host of questions that bother nearly every new trader is how many trades they should make every month. While, in general, the question might not seem as important as others, it is, however, quite crucial if you’re looking to hit the chords with complete precision; or in a more subtle terms, if you’re looking to optimize the return from your every trade. After all, contrary to what the self-claimed “experts” and your ego may tell you, over-trading is never good and is an ingredient to poor return.

While given with all the noble intentions, many people interpret it in a slight different way. Result? They end up making big trading blunders, struggling to make decent return from their investment.
