It’s been a little quiet in these parts just lately as I’ve had some more time off for one reason or another. I’m glad in a way looking at some of the markets, this time of year is my least favourable couple of months. I tend to dislike September/October more than January/February where as I know for other full-timers it’s often the other way around.
Yesterday I was directed to a BBC show called ‘Traders: Millions by the Minute’ by a follower on the Facebook page. This morning I sat and watched the two episodes and throughout I could relate to a lot of the things that were being said even though it was very different markets traded. It’s the single most thing I find these sort of programs/books etc always focus on or at least the individuals featuring in them talk about: Mindset. I often hear from others that are largely successful to only find when they up the stakes it all goes wrong! or some that are successful in training mode or paper trading but once it comes to the real thing they fall to pieces.
It left me wondering how I’d fare myself if I had got into trading something else where it was possible to make and lose far more significant sums of money…
Anyway here are a couple of links to watch the episodes even if your outside the UK as I know a few abroad couldn’t initially (found by Miguel on the FB page)
