Consider Your Trading Skills and Well As Your Psychology
Consider for example that you were always a position trader looking for long-term moves. Your belief was in long- term trends and day trading strategies. You never saw the relevance, in fact you never even considered, or believed in day trading, whenever someone mentioned a day trading method, your mind automatically flashed loser to you.
One day you discovered a day trading approach that made sense and seemed to fit your personality. In fact you loved the methodology and results when you tested it historically, you even witnessed first-hand someone trading it and making money doing so.
Your new belief in a proven day trading system is in conflict with your old habits that day trading strategies don’t work. Even though the new system has promise, the old habits and expectations from the market have a stronger energetic force thus creating frustration.
To overcome this frustration you must take the energy out of (de-activate) the old habits and beliefs and replace them with a new belief and habits. To de-activate the old habits and beliefs as a commodity futures trader, you need to positively charge the new beliefs. This may require a bit of effort and time.
Little by little with each successive swing trading and day trading positive experience you have with your new day trading system, you take energy out of the old beliefs and create positive energy for the new belief. If there are conflicting beliefs about your trading different markets or trading strategies and we aren’t willing to expend the effort to de-activate the negatively charged belief then acting on our new belief will be a struggle at the very least and perhaps impossible.
Creating a dominant belief requires adherence to several principles of consistent success. Some of these principles will likely be in direct conflict with some of the beliefs you have already acquired about trading.
To overcome this conflict and transform yourself into a consistent winner as a daytrader at marketgeeks you must first be willing to change, have clarity of intent, and a strong desire. You must at every turn choose consistency over every other reason or justification you have for commodities, futures and other types of trading methods.
The first step in creating consistent results is to begin observing what you are thinking, saying, and doing. These actions reinforce and contribute some belief in your mental system. You must start paying attention to your various trading related psychological processes. I recommend you write down your thoughts so that you can come back and see how much different your thought process is compared to how it was when you first began this process.
