Trading Psychology


I am no expert in psychology. Just like all other traders, I went through all kinds of emotional troubles before finding my way to live with trading. Articles written on the subject are more personal experience than anything else.

I am a strong believer that by being knowledgeable enough in a subject (in this case trading), the emotional swings associated with the uncertainties will subside. The key here is not just knowledgeable in theory, but also fluent in applying the knowledge.

A good analogy is driving. You cannot drive a car by just learning it from a few video instruction sessions. You have to practice to get a feel how driving actually works. Better drivers do not necessarily driving cars many hours a day. It is the focus and the amount of time spent in fine tuning certain skills in driving that counts.
