Emotional Resilience It's important for you to have strong emotional resilience. You need to be relatively calm and collected even in times of great joy, happiness, and elation, and also the same during times of grief, sorrow, and great pain.
If you cannot be this type of person, trading will prove quite difficult.
Traders who are highly emotional tend to gamble in their trading allowing their wins and losses to dictate their emotions.
Are you able to do whatever it takes to become an emotionally resilient trader?
