Today we revisit with community member David K who we interviewed a few years ago. We find out he’s about to graduate college shortly. While he started as strictly an investor, David has been working on trading since he was 17 years old.
After a frustrating bout with trading, David took some time off before coming back to the market. He realized the value of psychology and how trading is truly a numbers game.
David is a shining example of the ‘no excuses’ mentality. He has worked a handful of side jobs even while being a full time student to keep accumulating capital. A big difference is that he finds enjoyment out of the various jobs instead of just complaining about them.
A key to successful trading is the ability to trust yourself and follow your system. David is very proud that he has been able to stay consistent in terms of executing his trades and sticking to the plan instead of reacting to his emotions.
I discovered a new video series about psychology and how to execute these trades. Really changed the way I think about trading.
I would just feel like garbage and make mistakes. There was no reason to put my hard earned money at risk when I haven’t slept.
I want to execute these trades without any fear or hesitation and without making any errors. Just following my rules 100%.
I realized the setup could look the exact same, every moment is unique in the market. There can be different people participating.
