How Much Have Your Emotions Already Cost YOU?
How much have your emotions already cost you just this year in losses and missed profits?
During my first year of trading, between the emotional interference and self-sabotage, they cost me over $32,000, a whole lot of self-esteem and nearly cost me my marriage.
And while I like to blame them on my wife, the gray hairs that I have probably came from that first year of trading.
Letting emotions mess with good trading has a high price.
One of the most common things people say they want most is to be able to stick to their rules, to trade consistently.
A primary contributor to the problem here is emotions causing the deviation from the rules.
You’ve probably experienced this a time or two yourself, yes?
Where you’ve hit some losing trades you didn’t expect, and how you’re almost constantly second-guessing your system?
Emotional Trading Is NOT “Normal”
Because I jumped into trading without the proper preparation (like most traders), trading was an emotional experience from Day 1.
All the resources I found said that this was just a normal part of trading.
Even when I did figure out how to clamp down my emotions, it never lasted for very long.
But trading should NOT be an emotional experience.
NO occupation should be that high stress.
But I knew that even though trading is challenging, it can and should be much less of a roller coaster ride.
I needed to calm down and I wasn’t finding the answers inside the trading sphere.
