Let's get away from all the BlackBerry insanity my colleague, Gavin, has been promoting these past few days. Let me talk to you about a few things I advise our trader clients before trading. Trading is a high-stress activity and it's important you manage your emotions and your stress at all stages.
I always liken trading to golfing. Every game is different. However, if you had a good education, you will still do better than those who are "winging" it. If you are angry, sad, and experiencing any type of extreme emotion, you SHOULD NOT trade. I can't make that clear enough.
I am one of the instructors at Equity Sense. I mentor seasoned traders as well as teach new traders on how we trade. A good foundation in trading goes a long way in surviving this brutal environment. Make sure to book a class soon by clicking here. Or you can contact us too.
Traders from Equity Sense will be writing on this blog on positions and other market-related things.
