Like in the movie ‘Fight Club’ where there was a secret group of ‘fighters’ that loved what they did there is also a group of ‘traders’ in the market that love what they do so much that they win.
In the markets there is a club of traders that make up the 10% of winners that keep the profits over the long term that the other 90% lose in the short term. They trade differently than the majority. They use trading plans not hunches. Their #1 priority is managing risk not making profits. They trade to make money, not to impress anyone or prove they are right. They trade with passion, perseverance, and focus. They put in the time, they do the work, they can be knocked around by the market and still come back tomorrow for another trading day, knowing that all that stands between them and a lot of money is time.
