The mind is no place for playing checkers. It is one massive game of chess on steroids. If you are a beginner, the sooner you realize that mastering your mind is a big puzzle piece for trading success, the sooner you give yourself an actual chance at success. If you are a veteran trader, then you already know how challenging the mental game is for us as traders. No matter where you are in your journey as a trader, my guest for this episode will sound relatable! Nick (”SecondChance” for those of you in the chatroom) shares his journey with us which includes a variety of situations that I was able to relate to, and I’m sure you will too. If you are a beginner, he offers up some great bits of advice from mistakes he’s made. I appreciated Nick’s willingness to be open about his struggles and areas of the market he realizes he still needs to work on. We also discuss the tricky market we’ve been in over the past couple of months, including how to make adjustments and navigate the choppy waters. If you’ve felt as though the markets have gotten more difficult over the past couple of months, you’re not alone! Nick and I feel the same way and talk through the challenges together. There is something for everyone in this episode, so let’s get to it!
