Trading is not easy but it also isn’t as hard as we make it. Here are three things that will help it be less hard.
Have a plan already. You are just guessing and putting yourself through unnecessary stress if you don’t. You are taking a test without studying.
Fall in love with the L’s
You have to live with the idea of loss and learning. They are connected. They are always fighting each other. Losses makes you want to ignore the learning and not losing makes you think you don’t need it.
When you lose your optimism shrinks, when you win it expands. Chances are you have only accepted winning. One trade does not make a trend, either direction. But it is easy to connect the losses. Step back and see it for what it really is.
