Build Like a Boss

For me, trading has been an evolution towards ever greater systematisation.

My experience is that reading the charts and picking market direction is emotionally satisfying and financially devastating.

I am part of the species human, and we are a disappointing species. Despite years of moderately successful trading I have an unfortunate tendency to cheer for my trades like they were football teams.

I remember the winners and shove the losers into a dark cavern of my mind, never to be thought of again.

I obsess about market direction when I allow myself to, go down news rabbit holes, and generally hold a bunch of opinions which make things harder not easier.
