Day Trader Problems: I Almost Lose My Mind (how to avoid)

published 5 months ago by ClayTrader

As day traders, there are always going to be problems. I wish I could teach you how to trade with a strategy that never allows problems to happen, but that is simply not the reality of how day trading works. Due to the fact that day trading has a huge  mental aspect, in many situations the problems arise not from your trading strategy, but rather, from mind games you play with yourself. Instead of trying to explain myself here, let me show you some of my personal day trading results that demonstrate this problem in real life. You will see me almost lose my mind; however, you will also see what I choose to do which will teach you how to avoid this common mistake. Being a day trader is awesome, but you need to be very self-aware and be prepared for the types of mind games that exist.
