Tough love from the Doctor
For those of you who missed it, do yourself a favor and check out Dr. Brett's reality check for struggling traders. If nothing else let his post remind all of us that trading is a tough business where you will learn more about yourself, your strengths and your weaknesses, than 10 years of psychoanalysis could expect to produce. Trading can bring out the best in you, but it can also bring out the worst. The trick is to maintain your sanity, your sense of cosmic humor, your perspective on life and your bankroll as you compete in a marketplace with some the smartest, well financed and sometimes devious traders in the world. It ain't easy, and anybody who claims otherwise is a liar.
