DislikedOur inner selves wanting us to fail is a psychological fact?
Dude I don't want an argument, but do you have any evidence from psychological research to support your claim?
Mark Douglas did not state this, he alluded to what I was touching on, that if you have negative beliefs hanging around in your psyche, that will have an adverse effect on your trading.
If you believe your inner self wants you to fail this will become real and dominate your trading.
"Beliefs resist any force that would alter their present form" Mark Douglas...Ignored
Actually its the subconscious part of our brain that makes trade decisions like everything else, although our conscious rational brain can make good trades fairly well and frequently, its the subconscious brain that screams TRADE and then loses your money.
Learning to use the rational part of your brain is key and forcing myself to use it I find very tiring, but the results are 80% wins compared to 20% wins ( Short term trader )
Nothing to it, but to do it!!! Stick to the plan FOOL!!!!
