DislikedWell the eternal question of trust: Do you trust yourself in life? Euh....do you TRUST life? The unfolding basic goodness in existence????? If in doubt or simply NOT, then try to build durable ego trust.... I NEVER succeeded in more than 40 years efforting. I only had illlusionary, false trust. And when that false trust collapsed, within myself a made a free fall through a gaping bottomless hole, crashing in an infinite ocean of never ending inconsolable, unbearable sadness, despair, rage, hopelessness and terror. And that very space opens to eternal,...Ignored
Yeah, you won't believe how possible it is to make many "high-pip" trades... and do "just one more", like only TP0.1PIP and your balance get crushed So one would have to be like terminator, emotional wrecks don't last long if they do not recognise this and either use comp help or some other trader that executes for them... Knowing your weakness is the key... I think that one must become nothing, before becoming everything (potentially). Ego is the most expensive thing, specially in trading... That is why many WS/fin guys ONLY care about the money (at trading for example), because for every thing that you care in addition to it... you must PAY for it... everything costs big money... Many argue that it is impossible to be profitable at all... let alone to price-in all those "luxuries" like egotrip, fixations, cockfights... Just check some other forums... some guy might have the juice (now and then) but is obssesed with "buying the dips"... that can make him profit, in the shortterm.. but in the longrun his positions might be locked forever... btw... he has some locked positions and still refuse to sell them... He would be fired so fast that his.. would burn... but since he's "prop trading" for his "money"... no much loss, just wasting time/life
Ok you got the picture.. some issues are not (only) trading related but wider picture... Many personalities are unfit for trading completely... They love organised systems... that is why they are in some (glorified) profession that has this... the profession where path might be hard but the "awards" are known.... Those kind of people are either not interested in trading or give up quickly.. because they do not understand that markets give zero f... how "good boy" someone is.. how much school or how loyal you are or whatever... this is totally irrelevant, basically.. so they go nuts if they see someone "lower than them" (by their standards) pulling serious buck... and they thing "it is not fair"...
Ok, typed too much, hope anyone gets the point which I do not say is right! Just my opinion/observation... I personally do not TRUST anything/anyone in trading... Because this is expensive... Trusting would mean we are SURE.. and that is the RED ALARM word.. in markets... You should never trust yourself (completely) in trading, tbh... BTW people that lost everything in any crash... did trust themself.. And usually they didn't lost lifesavings.. that is what most people do not understand... The serious cases from any crash are those that lost money they didn't have... aka borrowed... to the point of no return (should things go south)... and if they do... So DOUBT is good in trading, because there are almost zero certainties in markets... one should never forget that... You could make beyond awesome return/profit and be crushed in the next trade... That is why some gurus just disappear overnight I would say, TRUST buy verify (and always doubt aka risk manage, hedge, contingency plan
I might be wrong! So please do not argue ppl, just my 2b...
Can you afford to take that chance?
