What separates the winnings traders from the losing ones?

If you ask me what the number one thing that defines a good trader is (apart from discipline and bankroll management) I would say choosing good entry and exit points. It is almost an art form because hitting the perfect entry and exit point is near impossible. However, hitting ‘good’ and profitable ones is very achievable if you know what to look out for.
