I truly find in being profitable and being able to overcome the psychological battle one must come to your trading desk with a positive mind and knowledge. You can’t beat yourself up with a loss, its a learning experience. If you have a bad day know that tomorrow is a fresh slate and new set ups. Try to analyze and learn what went wrong. Those losses make us stronger if we use them to our advantage.
Momo Traders: Tips, Tricks, and Strategies from Ten Top Traders by Brady Dahl (2015-05-03)– This book is a contemporary book of interviews of day traders. Not big hedge funds but people like you and me that decided to trade for a living and their experiences.
This inspired me to change my career to trade a profession that can be done anywhere in the world.
This is a link to a movie which I found more inspiring than reading the book. However the book came first and is available too.
More books recommended from the interviewees in my book.
