Starting a series of articles about my path in trading is like trying to create a journal, retroactively, about “my life up until today” or “music” or “how to have meaningful relationships with others”. It is a very broad topic. However, like most broad topics worth exploring, documenting and sharing, it can be done one paragraph at a time. This is an experiment for me, as I have not ever written a blog before, or educational articles.
I have benefited so much from others writing down and sharing what they have learned, what they have experienced, what they are thinking about, and links to the same from others. I want to do the same, so I’ll start my work here.
Welcome to all of you and, wherever you are in your journey, I hope you find something here that is helpful. However, I will offer a powerful disclaimer that I will repeat throughout my writings here: Trading is a very risky and, therefore, very emotional endeavor. We all have different psychological make-ups, different emotional baggage, different levels of skill and experience, different financial situations, etc. With these articles, I am sharing some things that have worked (or not worked) for ME. This does not mean they will work (or not work) for YOU. Everyone trades at his/her own risk. Risk may lead to reward and it may lead to loss.
In trading, never forget you are 100% responsible for these things:
- Whether or not to play the game
- How much you will risk
- When to start playing and when to stop playing
When you take responsibility for your own actions you embark on the road to self-improvement, personal growth and awareness. Who knows what you’ll find?
To the journey,
