Mindset Advantage: Ignore The News

Put the news in its place once and for all.

Sure. They’re entertaining. They have a lot to say. And yes, they bring you information.

But when it comes to your trading, those talking heads can cost you a lot of money.

It’s their job to entertain and retain viewers – not give you the entry or exit you really need, let alone an insight that will provide an advantage.

Let’s face it: by the time it’s coming out of their mouth, the market has already responded. They have no idea what’s coming!

So don’t let them whip you into a frenzy. Don’t take the information they provide and place a trade on it. Forget those talking heads!
