We all most definitely agree on the two components.

The only difference is that system/professional guys start the sentence with expectancy, and assume that psychology is a given, otherwise they would be in a different job; whereas any of us mere retail traders that have a decent amount of experience start the sentence with psychology, knowing that if we don't crack that we aren't going to find any expectancy anyway.

Anybody else starting out has to discover the hard way that both worlds are inhospitable places to live in.

Cheers

I definitely agree that both are needed to succeed!
