However im sure this is not the case for the vast majority of us.. myself included (but im working on it)… now i have experienced points when trading where by i am happy and feel comfortable completely engrosed in the market, not anxious, scared or euphoric watching the information presented to me seemingly effortlessly entering and closing positions with little ‘feeling’ taking just about every opportunity on offer without dobting myself…. sounds too good to be true? almost but i’d say i’ve experience this on a few occasions, as you might expect these occasions have produced good results.
What i have just described is the ‘Opportunity flow’ ….its something incredibly difficult to master so it would seem as the natural reactions of being human seem to get in the way time and time again, with small stakes it seems far easier to encounter at the moment although i believe this is because it is reliant on many other things.. possibly even deeper than i realise, to be in this ‘moment’ or ‘flow’ i have to fully accept the outcome of the next trade good or bad as my edge is perfect, also at the same time i cannot expect anything from the market… as soon as i expect to win or dont accept the fact that the next or previous trade is ok to be a looser i am taken out of the flow and emotion creeps in. I think this is something that is going to take some time to master.
