Anyone who has a solid trading strategy found by increasing trading frequency helps or hinders there progression?

Willing to take more hits to get to the final goal as the numbers i believe work out in the end rather than setting an x trades per day limit.

Yes like the majority state trade less and less and more less and get nowhere.

I think more trades leads to higher chance of tilt.

Edit: I see you started 5 new threads at the same time, and I've been baited!

I increased the volume myself. But, I've also accepted that the losses will be equally if not worse. The good news is that my success rate is 68% and the winners are much higher than the losers so that's also helped.

To me, if you don't succeed in something, it is better to understand your mistakes and analyze them. The last thing you should do in such situations is to increase the volume of your deals, it won't give you any positive results. Personally, when something fails, I take a break in a few days, and then with new thoughts I return to trading and to old problems.

Less is more.

It's okay to trade "more"...as in, maybe an extra 1-2 trades sure. That's acceptable.
An extra 100 to 300 trades? Maybe not the best idea
Do as I say, not as I do. I've made the mistake, oh yeah, of over-trading the conditions.
Hell there are days, even weeks, where you should do almost nothing or very little. Sit on Hands (SOH).

I think that trading more actually increases tour chances of success, but you must clearly understand when you are in tilt mode ans stop completely.

The reason why trading more increases your potential profits is this: more trades spaced over time is a form of diversification.
