Managing Fear and Expectations
All trades, no matter how well thought out, have the potential to end in a loss. Therefore, we must manage our expectations and be willing to accept risk and fear as part of the trading process. In this week’s edition of Trading Simplified, Dave discusses ways to deal with these inescapable neurological and psychological aspects of trading. He also discusses how current less-than-ideal current conditions could be contributing to your angst. For the “Methodology In Action,” he presents a trade recently opened, and another recently closed for a “better-than-a-poke-in-the-eye” profit.
