Most Important Trading Lesson Learned

“Trading is about taking decisive action, but you need to be divorced from your emotions. Getting married to a position in the market is a result of many cognitive biases interfering with a sound trading and investment strategy. It’s important to remain objective and be willing to admit defeat as soon as the evidence accumulates against your favor. It’s better to take a small loss and admit you were wrong than take a big loss because you insisted that you were right.”
