TradersCALM - "I am calm because..."
© "Dedicated to trading with good feelings." All services are free.
A variety of calm traders were asked to complete the sentence "I am calm because...". As you might expect we all have differing perspectives on what calm means; and how to get there - they are offered as is, for there is no right or wrong if it works for you - do not be surprised if, the quotations are somewhat contradictory.
They said, "I am calm because..."
... my trading edge is no longer marginal,
... I know I can make money almost every day,
... I provide a useful service and get paid in profits,
... I now treat mistakes as opportunities for improvement,
... the odds are heavily on my side,
... the market makers are on my side,
... nothing can hurt me because I under-trade,
... I make no prediction for my ego to be attached to,
... I love the occasional loss for its learning potential,
... calm generates more calm,
... one mistake does not upset me any more,
... I can't get caught out by a margin increase,
... most slippage is in my favour,
... I am patient now,
... I do not associate with a single trade outcome,
... I meld with the market,
... I love what I do,
... I look forward to the next lesson from the market,
... I get to make and flex my own rules,
... I now learn from my own and others mistakes,
... I do not need to be right any more,
... fulfilment and joy have replaced excitement and anger,
... gaps in either direction help me,
... I no longer worry about data-feed failure,
... I do not need a data feed, graphs and all their problems any more,
... now I can trust myself,
... now I can leave an open position without worrying,
... my discipline is nearly rock solid now,
... you have shown me the opportunities are unlimited.
