If you have well defined setups you would not be making new rules and adjustment everyday.

IMO finding and developing defined setup is one thing, after that the harp part is determine when these setups work and when are market conditions favorable. I think I have defined setup (swing long) but my problem is I make good progress when market is favorable and I tend to loos all the progress when market conditions are not favorable (taking too many paper cuts that add up).
Develop skills in Situational Awareness and skill we call on members site T3A. Think 3 days ahead. That way one can anticipate likely bad periods for setups and dial down risk or not trade them.
