Mark Douglas and all trading psychologists emphasize being "open" to whatever direction the market may go (up or down). My problem is, when I tell myself I have to be open to the market's direction, whether up or down, that's when doubt starts to creep in. It seems to take the place of any directional bias I have based on my signals. As soon as I try to release my mind from my own directional bias, "something else" has to take its place, and doubt is more than happy to step in. So how does the expert traders deal with this? I'd like to hear what thoughts you place in your head to stay open to the market's direction without doubt coming in to replace it?
