Lessons From Expert Traders
The tactics, behaviour and mindset that can be learned from the world's most successful financial traders
Iíve got to stick to your own rules, even if they make me look stupid sometimes. Thatís the fact for survival. Irrespective of some negativity that may come my way in a month or, even on a quarterly basis, I know Iíd be triumphant in the end. Any temporary negativity I may be experiencing right now has little or no effect on this fact. My expertise is measured by my faithfulness to my trading ideas. Thatís the most important factor. If I follow my rules, then Iím making progress, but if I breach my rules, I need to go for psychological help. This has nothing to do with whether there is an ongoing positivity or negativity.
The game of speculation usually entails emotional hurdles to overcome. Going against the herd mentality canít be over-emphasized. Speculating triumphantly needs self-awareness and the knowledge of how the markets work and positive expectancy systems.
