Trading is a Mindgame...

Heres an interesting link to a discussion .....

the main reason most traders eventually quit (even ones with great potential and promise)...is that they just cannot handle the uncertainty of the game you have to subconsciously and Emotionally be able to accept losses and uncertainty and losing trades ...... remember if you have a decent robust system and you are executing it consistently and accurately ...then EVERY EVERY trade that fails was based on the same criteria of those that were profitable .... this is very very confusing and frustrating for our human minds ......it literally does not compute !!! hence most people eventually crack and walk away .....it just does not appeal to their logical and rational mindsets .....we humans must try to achieve as much control as possible in our life.....despite the clear lack of it ....thats why so many people have mental health issues and depression..... I have trained & mentored many people from very controlled and logical background (pilots , doctors , scientists , lawyers , accountants) ...I can literally watch them meltdown as these things happen ....they just cant accept it based on some 30+ years of training and experience where they have generally been able to avoid such behaviour and outcomes.... welcome to trading ....
