Typically, a major common mistake that traders do is they don't have enough patience to wait for the proper entry.
Timing a really good entry dramatically lowers the risk and increases the reward. In most of our trades, we like to wait for what we call "change control" before we enter.

Put simply, it's sideways price action building a short term range before either the bulls or the bears take back control.

More often than not, an overbought chart will form change control first before it cycles back down. The goal is to wait for that change control and enter at short term supply on the "Worm's Eye View" (1-minute or 5-minute chart).
