As you may already know trading was introduced to me when I was young and the words to me were ‘come let me teach you a game.’ This has always stuck regardless of how serious I took forex many years ago. It is one principle which applies very well to me and I genuinly believe is a valid approach to trading. We have all heard treat your trading like a business. I want to adapt this philosophy. Treat your trading like a business GAME. Make it fun, don’t worry about how much money you won or lost. Have fun and enjoy the game. Here is a video explaining how I am playing in the markets right now.
Now as you see my definition of playing is continuous predictions and and analysis. It’s fun to me. Predict predict predict. Am I right or wrong? Why this? Why that? My curiousity and childish side treats trading just like a puzzle which I am trying to solve. I am a strong believer in the best way to learn is actual chart time. I don’t care how many courses you have done or gone over or books you have read, NOTHING competes with chart time spent by you. It is just learning on the job. It doesn’t mean you have to put any money at risk either so there is so many opportunities for you to do this whether it is live analysis, bar by bar replay or even watching other traders trade professionally and their analysis. To round this post up, in my opinion if you treat it like a game you relax and it becomes a positive addiction which enables you to learn more and reduce the stress of real trading and losses. Keep it fun and it will be more sustainable for the long run. Hope you found some value in this post and make sure you check all the other previous topics, prediction and weekly reviews I have covered.
