Mind the Mental Gap

Most US markets are closed today in observance of the Memorial Day holiday, and I know you’re probably spending some quality time with family and friends.

But I wanted to get in touch with a quick note before we all get back to trading tomorrow morning…

I talk about mindset a lot because it’s so important in trading…

And one of the things I often recommend is that you “mind the mental gap.”

Mind the Gap

You see, no matter how much success you have, there’s always a gap.

I’m talking about the gap between you and the results you’d like.

The gap between the losses you can sustain and the losses you are sustaining…

The gap between the gains you’re making and the gains you’re missing out on…

The gap is what’s holding you back! Not the market. Not your charts. You!

Focus on what you need to change to close the gap a little each session. Apply a little more discipline…

Get out of that loser a bit faster. Take those profits sooner and forget the rest. 

Mind the gap!
