I'm curious to know if anyone else in the community has anxiety in their personal lives and trades regularly?
I'm new to the forum but have been trading pennies/small caps for a little over a year, and FX for about 1-2 months.
Sometimes the thought of trading makes my anxiety rise up a bit, or while I'm anxious, I don't even want to look at charts. It comes from the uncertainty of the game. Dealing with uncertainty, and letting things go that are out of my control are some things I'm working on in my personal life. Ironic I trade right? Well I love it.
And then there are the times when I'm cool, calm, collected, I'll trade smart and I'll be relaxed and confident before and during a trade, and that's when profits always seem to occur.
So, anyone else in this boat?
