Two Qualities of Successful Traders – #AnirudhSethi

Successful traders, I’ve found, are self-aware and self-awareness is one of the traits they follow markets with. They maintain meticulous records of their successes and failures, so they always know where they stand financially. They’re not simply looking for moral backing when we get together. They are always looking to better themselves and their business. Excellent traders are always looking for ways to improve, regardless of whether they are winning or losing money.

Second, I have noticed that successful traders tend to concentrate on the good rather than the bad. Successful traders know what they should be doing and translate it into daily, weekly, and monthly objectives. Traders with less experience tend to focus on the bad. They are able to articulate what they do not want to be doing, but they are unclear as to what they should be doing in order to be successful traders. That’s why they never set any real targets for development.

What if I went through today’s trade with you and asked, “In this session, you were working on what exactly? Just what were your primary objectives when trading?”

How definitive of an answer could you give? Was your primary goal developing as a trader, or making a profit?

Top-tier traders often willingly submit to being studied. They are always learning new strategies and honing their skills.

Trading With Patience: Using Trading Metrics to Aid Trading Psychology -#AnirudhSethi

Trading with patience involves using trading metrics to help manage one’s emotions and mental state while trading. Metrics such as profit/loss, risk/reward ratios, and win-loss percentages can provide a sense of objective evaluation of one’s performance and can help traders make more informed decisions.

By using metrics to track their performance, traders can better understand their strengths and weaknesses, and make adjustments to their trading strategy accordingly. Additionally, metrics can help traders identify patterns in their trading behavior and identify areas where they may be prone to making emotional or impulsive decisions.

For example, a trader who frequently enters trades with a high risk/reward ratio may want to focus on developing a more conservative trading strategy, while a trader with a high win-loss percentage may want to focus on increasing their position size to maximize their profits.

Furthermore, by keeping an eye on these metrics, traders can better manage their emotions and stay calm under pressure. When faced with a losing trade, for example, a trader who is aware of their risk/reward ratio and win-loss percentage can remind themselves that losing trades are a normal part of trading and that their overall performance is still in line with their expectations.

In conclusion, trading with patience involves using trading metrics to aid trading psychology by providing a sense of objectivity and perspective, helping traders make more informed decisions, and managing emotions and mental state.
