Description of Overcome Fear
Fear is probably the most significant emotion for traders. Many traders struggle with this emotion and fear can demobilize you from applying your hard learned technical skills. Significant trading losses often lead to emotional distress and turmoil. Unless addressed, the trader may re-experience those painful memories in future trades. Following anguishing losses, a trader may become paralyzed and unable to enter the trade or act in other fear-based ways. After all, traders are human and naturally fear that which causes pain.
Although the desire to trade may be strong, the mental response to fear can be stronger. Anticipated pain is sidestepped by not pulling the trigger. This is not a sign of weakness. It is merely the mind’s attempt at self-protection, though it causes much frustration and distress, and works against our interests as traders.
When suffering from fear, you may
- Cut winners short in fear of giving profits back
- Hesitate in pulling the trigger because you fear the prospects of a loss
- Hang on to losing trades because you fear taking the loss
- Jump into unplanned trades because you fear leaving money on the table
Have you ever questioned why it is so difficult to trade even when you have solid technical skills?
In this webinar recording, “build trader confidence and minimize fear,” Dr. Gary, an expert trading psychologist and educator of Wyckoff chart reading, presented to you how you can use methods based on cutting edge research from human performance psychology, to start build your confidence and minimize fear. Dr. Gary has gone into details on specific techniques designed for traders for you to use to address fear in your trading.
The webinar recording comes with a workbook of these techniques and exercises you can use to overcome fear.
As some of you may have already experienced, after significant losses, our trading psychology can get in the way of trading, even if we have improved our technical trading edge. Many traders stop trading and never return. Others work hard to understand and correct the flaws in their technical game, only to find that none of the techniques they learned would help them overcome fear. To be successful, traders need to manage both the technical game and the emotional side of trading.
Overcome Fear is designed to help traders understand how fear can affect their trading and offers specific steps and practical techniques you can use to address this very common emotional pitfall in trading.
