The market emotion cycle
Four Fears
• 1. Fear of being wrong -- creates agony over entering
trades
2. Fear of losing -- this often results in holding on to
losing positions
3. Fear of missing out -- leads to chasing price and
poorly timed entries
4. Fear of leaving money on the table -- translates to
holding on to positions too long and poorly timed
exits
To defeat the Four Faces, we need the
Five Truths of Trading:
1. Anything can happen.
2. You don't need to know what is going to
happen next in order to make money.
3. There is a random distribution between wins and
losses for any given set of variables that define an
edge.
4. An edge is nothing more than an indication of a
higher probability of one thing happening over
another.
5. Every moment in the market is unique.
Five Belief of a successful trader
• Money is not important.
• It is okay to lose in the markets.
• Trading is a game.
• Mental rehearsal is important for success.
• They've won the game before they start.
