random post by me again.
To become an order flow trader you need to stop spending time on the things that will not or almost never will generate sufficient order flow to move price and start spending time on the things that can generate order flow and move price and give you an edge.
You need to have a good reason, rooted in sufficient order flow for your trade to be successful. You need to have a good reason for the positive expectancy of your system. You need to have a very good reason for placing a good trade. You need to have a very good reason for believing that the market will move after you establish your position.
After all you are going up against some other good traders that may have executed trades a few pips before you. What makes you think that your trade is at the right time? What is the reason for your trade being successful?
I wish I could just place great trades without having done the necessary work to determine if there will be sufficient order flow that will come into the market. I wish I could just spend 5 minutes a month, wave my magic order flow wand and come up with these killer order flow trades.
Unfortunately you need to put in the order flow work to catch the killer trades. Now it does get much easier over time, but there is still some work involved.
So whats your reason?
