It is widely known that trading is difficult, but, to my mind, there is a misunderstanding as to why. It is not difficult because it is hard to read the markets, analyze what’s moving, and build a set of rules to take advantage of whatever is perceived as opportunities. It is difficult because it is hard to develop an aptitude to weather the ups and downs of this profession.
