I am starting this thread as an adjunct to the "Jack Hershey Trading" thread in Strategy. The primary topic covered in this thread will be the role of the mind in trading from a pragmatic point of view. The impact of this thread (with the help of our resident expert Jack - aka Grob109) will be improved trading through raised awareness, self appraisal and change. While it is helpful if you stay current on the Strategy thread it is not required. This thread is open to all. However - to maintain a certain standard of utility I ask that moderators and posters note the following guidelines for coduct in this thread. 1) NO cat-calling, tomato throwing, negative comments. This is not a place to vent your negative opinions for the sake of it. 2) Dissention or disagreement is welcome if presented in a civil manner and substantiated through an argument that is more sophisticated than pure personal opinion.
