Going mental in your trading

When people ask me what training has helped me become successful as a trader, they are usually surprised to hear that it is my background in psychology. Of course, the ability to read price and understand technical indications is important, but even those traders who have the best plans and well thought out trading plans will fail if they cannot execute properly.

Getting Your Mental Game Together

Carl looked at the chart with interest and some trepidation. He had been here many times before. He was playing the NQ E-mini. The 60-minute chart showed what to him was a strong demand zone and he had placed his limit order to buy just below the top of the zone, and placed his OSO order to put a stop just below the bottom of the bottom of the zone.

Elliott wrote that a market movement, whether a bull move or a bear move, always could be broken down into five separate waves, with three being impulsive, or trending,...
