2.1 – Expectations

Often market participants approach technical analysis as a quick and easy way to make a windfall gain in the markets. On the contrary, technical analysis is anything but quick and easy. Yes, if done right, with the right measure of discipline and risk management, one can generate consistent returns, but to get to that stage, one must put in the required effort to learn the technique.

Let us understand how to set the right expectations based on TA from this video.
