Thought of the Day…

“In my experience, I have to say that there was very little critical difference between the net winning traders and the net losing traders in most areas. All of them had good understanding of the basic market fundamentals, used a solid technical analysis or research of some kind, and exercised a lot of personal discipline. The one thing that stood out, the one thing that separated the net winner from the net loser, all things being equal, was that the net winner had a trading plan in addition to his other skills. The net winner knew he was up against not just the market and his competitors, but he was up against himself, too. To guard against the possibility that he (the trader) could blow himself out of the water at any time if he wasn’t careful, that trader had a plan.”

    “The net winner knew he was up against not just the market and his competitors, but he was up against himself, too.”

    Took me many years of perseverance to finally GET IT .
    As i like to say now You are your own worst enemy not only in the Markets but also in life , effectively if something is holding you back LOOK inward not outwards .

    1. So true Rick, thanks for the comment. It’s one of those things that just takes times to ‘click’ but when it does…. took me a while to really figure this out too, learning the hard way…
