Since I've been trading, this is a thought I've been pondering over. From my own experience, I can say that emotions have gotten in the way of things in the past by causing me to either make an irrational decision or causing me to overreact to an unfavorable move in the markets. On the flip side, I've experienced success when I've taken that "I don't give a fuck" approach to my trading. What I mean is that ruthless, no remorse, no conscience mentality. Only then is when I can properly function in the markets. I've heard other traders say a similar thing. The only draw down would be that sociopaths usually don't take any responsibility for anything in their lives, which is a no-no in trading. But other than that....do you think sociopathy helps when trading?
