I believe that having the proper trading psychology is important. I have read several books on the subject and work daily to employ the concepts. There is little doubt that I will continue to do so. However, from time to time I take a step back and wonder if the whole thing is being overdone. There seem to be so many people who want to be, or at least sound like, trading psychology gurus/mystics. Is it because there is less accountability? Is it easier to sell trading psychology courses, books or seminars with a clear conscience than it is to sell a "winning" trading strategy? Or is it just an easier way to get away with outlandish claims or to impress your friends? Either way, sometimes I just can't help but feel zenned-out. In my own case, I find that I am most vulnerable during periods when I am not doing well because my method is not in sync with the markets for whatever reason. Then, I am most likely to reach for the warmth and comfort of a trading psychology book. That is why I sometimes wonder whether this is when the the gurus are either rising to help us or descending on us to prey upon our weaknesses. There is just so much of it, I can't be sure. Any thoughts?
