“Primary trading paradox: In what way does a trader have to learn how to be rigid and flexible at the same time? The answer is: We have to be rigid in our rules and flexible in our expectations. In this way we gain a sense of self-trust that can, and will always, protect us in an environment that has few , if any, boundaries.” – Mark Douglas
