All our lives we are taught to be subjective. Pick a side, stick with it and defend it no matter what the real underlying truth might be. In our social and business lives, we are oftentimes defending a flawed side. For example, a family member gets themselves into trouble and you defend them although the family member was clearly in the wrong. As I read all these different blogs and message boards, I sense that many do not have that power of objectivity. They have a learned behavior of being subjective letting opinion and emotion flow...defending flawed sides because they were taught to pick a side, stick with it and defend it no matter the true underlying cause. I am coming to find that the strongest behavioral trait of a trader is having the ability to step back and simply be objective. Look at the chart and tell me what you honestly see no matter what strategy you took before...no matter what happened in the past. So I ask you...honestly...do you have the power of objectivity?
