Being a bigot and disrespecting others is the way to go in trading? Why? That is because if you respect and acknowledge someone else's opinion then you buy into it either in whole or in part. You could be buying into a faulty strategy or diluting your own strategy. There is no sense in trying to come to a compromise...there is no sense in being polite. If a strategy is bad, then its bad. The market can be one of the coldest places in the world. There is no compromise when it comes to price. Either you are on the right side of the market or you are not. If the market does not compromise, then why should you?
