Disliked...There is no zen-like "see the ball, be the ball" state that can make up for a good solid methodology. And some people do place an over reliance on state. That somehow if you wake up feeling groovy you're just going to be able to sense the market and win all day long. That's just hogwash IMO.Ignored
One of the simplest ideas I've read about recently came from this board somewhere. Reduce your trade until the volume is so small that you are no longer concerned about winning or losing. This is a fascinating idea because it goes against the inherant greed of trading.
What I also find interesting is that my risk tolerance changes over time as I trade. For example the last trade I just put on the Aussie/USD has me a little nervous although it looks solid on paper. I wonder if this is a learned counter instinct because my trading is going well above average this month... Maybe I'll pull out of this trade and go to bed.
