What type of personality should a winning trader be?

I would say he should be calm and think of the next strategy, most important never to have over confidence.

I agree with you. Those are very important to have success.

Right. If you are calm then only will you be able to takes wise decisions.

According to me ,Discipline is surely a quality that winning traders possess.

You have to relax by trading. If I think I have a psychology problem after trading, how can I trade winning? So you have to trade with a positive mentality all the time.

He or she must love getting kicked in the teeth time after time after time.

Ah - They must be a Free speech advocate ?? :wink:
