I've been trading for a living since 2006. By merging mindfulness (an in-depth study of the mind and its tendencies in the present moment), a good trading process, and an efficient business practice, I went from being a losing trader to a consistently profitable one. Through my work here at Trading Composure, I aim at helping you do the same.

    Love your work Yvan. Just curious though, how do you express lie in the market?

    • Hey friend,

      Look at it this way: what usually motivates one to lie? When you dig deeper, what you see is that it’s a pattern of thoughts and emotions, based on the kinds of beliefs you hold.

      I’m not saying you have to be a saint in order to trade successfully… All I’m saying is that you’re trading your beliefs. Always. And not just your beliefs about the markets… you’re trading your beliefs about myriads of things. When you lie, you are reinforcing certain beliefs of yours and certain patterns of thoughts and emotions (maybe fear, anger, greed, etc..) and when you encounter certain situations in the markets, they are more easily tapped into. And the way you manifest them in the markets is through hesitation, doubt, fear, greed, and so on.
      I’m not inventing anything here, Van Tharp talked about this, Mark Douglas….

      I hope this helps. Thanks for reading
