Trading Psychology

Trading psychology refers to the state of mind of traders when they are active in the financial markets and how this affects their trading decisions. This psychological side of trading is often overlooked. A sound state of mind means a trader executes his plan consistently, is mindful of the risks involved, is not hindered by emotions, takes equal responsibility for wins and losses and is realistic about trading in general. Bad trading psychology is one of the top reasons traders fail.

Signs of good psychology include not being emotionally attached to individual trades, not being affected by performance anxiety, focussing on results over a larger number of trades and not putting up positions that are too big to handle. Good psychological traders do not engage in revenge trading, do not second guess trades, and focus on self-improvement without sabotaging their results. They are honest about wins and losses, hold themselves accountable and understand how to deal with fear and greed. Both can be destructive emotions and several techniques exist to control them.

Like many other worthy endeavors, overcoming greed requires a lot of effort and discipline. It isn’t easy, but it can be done. It’s all a matter of taming your ego.

"Kinds of Bets or Trades" (Risk management)

"There are really four kinds of trades or bets: good bets, bad bets, winning bets and losing bets. Most people think that a losing trade was a bad bet. That's absolutely wrong. You can lose money even on a good bet. If the odds on a bet 50/50 and the pay off is 2$ vresus a 1$ risk, that's a good bet even if you lose. The important point that if you do enough of ...

The idea of full market cycles is important to understand. “Where” you are within the current long-term investing cycle has everything to do with your long-term outcomes. The psychology of a major bubble follows a similar pattern, but having risen to ridiculous levels of leverage, has very much further to fall. Much greater collective psychological extremes are ...

1. Go online and connect with other traders, ask the right questions (keyword: right) and talk shop. Joining TradingView is the best decision I made by far since I started trading.

Above I have listed the multiple stages of a trade. A lot of the time it starts with a great buy, which leads to a logical selling point. Rarely do people go through with this. Why? because humans are full of emotion, which a lot of the time will get the best of us. Even though that sell order should be placed, GREED takes over. We hold on just a while longer ...
