As traders we all do things that keep us from optimal profitability. Underlying these actions are certain emotional attitudes that cause obstructive behavior. At the time we act, we believe we are acting in our own best interests, and yet we are not. Later we may decide we’ll never do that again. And yet we do. We do it again and again, and it usually doesn’t serve us.
This book identifies seven dispositions that impede trading profitability. It’s not enough to identify the behaviors and proclivities that are interfering with your best trading results. You need to change them.
