Mindset Advantage: Execute

In the end, trading is about execution. A detached, matter-of-fact execution that takes into account market data. It’s those darn emotions that get in the way.

What if you were able to execute every trade like you were cleaning up after a great meal with friends or family? 

Instead of each entry or exit being the heart-pounding, drama filled moment that it is (for many) – remove your emotions and treat it as though it just needs to be done.

Like taking out the trash, you don’t think about it. You don’t shed any tears over the 5 day old ravioli or hamburger buns that you’re throwing away. Why waste another second on that trade?

Good or bad. Simply execute. And free yourself to see the market from a different point of view.Traders Training Session
