    doing at the moment is becoming increasingly
    difficult in these insane times we are living in.

    information overload.

    becomes challenging to filter out the good stuff
    from all the nonsense out there.
  • As professionals, we must make an effort to stay
    focused on what we are doing.

  • When you are not placing trades, review your past
    trades in a systematic way and with a critical
    view, and write trading plans for new set-ups
    that are unfolding.

    intense experiences like for example a huge loss.
  • What most of them have in common, however, is
    that they get away from screens for a while.

  • Some of them choose to take the rest of the day
    off after having a bad experience.
  • These experienced traders know that the cost of
    them going away, even for a week-long holiday, is
    lower than the risk of making more mistakes in
    the markets.

3. Know Your Limitations
  • A high degree of self-awareness is another
    essential trait that many professional traders
    have in common.
  • It is often said in the markets that trading is
    one of the best ways to learn more about our
    personality, although it might become an
    expensive lesson for those not suited for trading.

  • However, knowing the strengths and weaknesses
    applies as much to a traders methodology and
    strategy as it does to his personality.
  • You need to know what situations your trading
    strategy performs well, and when it does not play

  • By knowing strengths and weaknesses, you can
    learn to take advantage of it to the level where
    you become the expert trader you can be!
