Foundations of Technical Analysis: Trading Psychology

Foundations of Technical Analysis: Trading Psychology

In this episode of our bi-weekly webinar on the Foundations of Technical Analysis we discuss the psychological pitfalls that can overcome our ability to objectively asses market conditions. Recognize that it’s not about being ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ – the market is always right. Our objective is to identity the best possible position to convey a bias on a given market while always keeping risk management at the forefront. Don’t rely on too heavily on any single bit of information, but rather take a more holistic view of the current state of price within the broader trend.

Finally, get as many trades under your belt as possible- live trades (no matter how small) will not only train you to better handle risk (and the emotions that come with it), it will also help you objectively evaluate issues or areas of improvement within your strategy / technique. Experience is the best teacher and fine tuning your investigative approach on price will increase your confidence with trade execution.
