Take Politics Out of Your Trading

hand-784077_1920

Whether you like it or not, politics puts you on a team. 

You are likely to put the team first and therefore think with the team. 

You become a part of your team’s groupthink, which is a space no trader willingly enters.

Even if your logical brain tells you what is true, your emotional brain is stronger. Logic often loses.

In trading we can not allow for emotion to take over. Trading is a rational decision makers game. The rational trader preys upon irrationality of others. 

This irrationality comes from fear, greed, groupthink, emotion, bias and manipulation – these are all key pieces of the political game.

Avoid them at all costs.

Become apolitical, especially if you want to trade at your best.
