As I sit here on a saturday night - very comfortably drunk , I thought I'd write my first post here in the psych room. As you can see from my join date, I am a ET newb, so first and foremost, greetings to my fellow traders who place an importance on the psychology of trading. What I want to talk about tonight: Facing our demons We all have 'em. Can't pull the trigger, can't stick to my stops, averaging losers, getting out too soon, one bad loss ruins your day/wk/yr, you get the picture. Many traders suffer from it. Not much has changed over the last 2,000 years of trading. You can bet that traders back then also had similar demons. Why? Because human nature hasn't changed. So what's the top ONE demon that keeps haunting you over and over? If you got rid of that demon, how much would your P&L improve? Would you give up your left nut to finally get over your demons? Hmmm...I need another beer.
