Yes, you're absolutely right. When we do trades we have to recognize whether we have done a mistake or not. Not every loss trade is mistake, because trading is about probability. Mistake is when you break your trading plan, as J. DiNapoli calls it "Trading bad". At the same time, you could do everything with the plan and still get the loss, but it not necessary will be a mistake, just because there are a lot factors that stand out of our control.They are the only way to improve in any field (if, of course, after making a mistake, a person sees it and corrects it, and this last is the most difficult, but this is the only true way of development).
