There Is A Story They Tell Of Two Dogs…

Your equity curve is your mirror. You only see your own reflection.

Food for thought from a Japanese folktale called The House of 1000 Mirrors.

There is a story they tell of two dogs. Both at separate times, walk into the same room. One comes out wagging his tail while the other comes out growling.

A woman watching this goes into the room to see what could possibly make one dog so happy and the other so mad. To her surprise, she finds a room filled with mirrors.

The happy dog found a thousand happy dogs looking back at him while the angry dog saw only angry dogs growling back at him.

What you see in the world around you is a reflection of who you are.

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.

    • Thanks for letting me know Shashank. Apparently Youtube has removed the video because I uploaded it twice. And I dont think I did. Weird! I’ll upload it again when I have a moment.
