In trading, it seems that the market will bite you back at any time, but don't forget that emotions are also used by humans as a weapon for self-harm.

Just ask yourself a question. When you are at a high point, are you mentally unbearable and want to read too much? To continue to be bearish at this time, it is already a "psychological struggle" problem, which is difficult to analyze objectively.

At this time, you must know one thing: other people will definitely think that they have fallen so much that there is no need to kill them again. This is the "common view of everyone". You must know that this kind of thinking is "human nature." But it is not "correct".

Thinking about how often is driven by psychology, starting from the non-technical side, it is really painful after the big drop. After a long period of decline, how do you look at the market outlook? The technical side is undoubtedly "empty". Falling down all the way, I know that my psychology has become "paralyzed". This is a kind of suffering.

However, the road to trading is lonely. You can't be influenced by others too much. You must be completely independent of the market. Success can only depend on yourself, but the fascinating part of trading is also here.

Manipulating and guessing the market are two different things. I have repeatedly emphasized the difference between "doing more because you see more" and "doing more because you need to do more". The way many people operate is to judge whether they will go up or down in the future, and then open a position and wait. If the market does not follow their own minds, they panic, start not to cut and wait until later, it will be severed or lost.

Objectively speaking, it is only our wishful thinking to insist on how the market will be. The market does not care how we analyze it, not to mention that the market situation is often changing rapidly. In many areas of operation, you must put aside your own (of course, other people's) views on the market.

You should stop when you stop loss, and you can't hesitate when you stop to keep profit. "Many parts of the mechanical trader can't give themselves any excuses." You can't gamble on the market just because you insist on what will happen. This is not an operation but a destiny to God.

Everyone in the transaction has a motto like this: "As long as I hold on to the position, it is not a real loss." But it's like you let your internal organs bleed and choose not to go to the doctor. The reason is like the following sentence: "Just If I don’t go to the doctor, others won’t know that I’m dying."

But believe me, once you die, people will discover the truth sooner or later. Each of us must know that our operation is to establish a "money-winning mode". When you leave this stable mode of winning money, you are gambling and doomed to fail.

It is not easy to break through psychological problems. You must know where your chances of winning are in order to have confidence.

I was squeezed before, so I would hesitate the next time I shot. This is a normal natural reaction. The biggest emotional reaction problem in trading is worry-because I am too afraid of losing, because I didn't enter the market, because... ...

At the moment when you want to establish a position, there are often many inexplicable and weird ideas coming out, suddenly remembering a certain loss a few days ago, or an idea that you would not normally think of, will it happen as soon as you buy earthquake?

Everyone has worries, but you have to overcome them by learning on your own. Once a successful operation model is established, the next step is execution. Without execution, everything is empty talk.

In fact, the difficulty of market operation lies in the psychological side. For example, when you plan to go long at a low position, if you hold a position all the way, you have to wait until the signal of the trend appears before you can make an action, but usually on the way, your psychological side will ask you to make a profit quickly. At this time, you have to endure the "pain" ".

The road of trading is the road of learning. For everyone, failure is almost self-inflicted. Since you want to survive in this market, you have to change your life frequency to follow the market. Few people are born to belong to the market, so to succeed, you must change-change all the wrong ideas and habits in the past, and continue to practice the correct behavior until it becomes your habit. Emotions will make people chase ups and downs, so Got to control it.

"Human nature is unwilling to let people easily confess compensation to realize losses, so you have to feel'accustomed to acknowledgment'." Human nature is also unwilling to let people give up the existing book profits that have been realized, so we must overcome "human nature's short-sightedness and short-sightedness". "The idea.

Doing the right thing in the market will almost always bring pain. People must choose to stay away from pain, away from pain but also away from success. Therefore, it is destined to be a minority of successful people, and introspection will also bring pain, because this is equivalent to Admit yourself that you failed in the past, so people will keep making the same mistakes.

The market doesn't care what you think at all, what's the problem? It’s because you are not a blank piece of paper, and you have too many subjective thoughts. These normal thoughts in life are correct in your daily life, but those thoughts are often wrong in the market... .Because life and market are two worlds, they have no intersection.

"Speaking is like comprehension, and being fascinated by the state of life" is a very vivid way of saying in Buddhist practice for those who cannot achieve dual cultivation. That is to say, the truth seems to be understood as soon as it is said, and it is transparent, but when the realm or specific affairs come, they do not know the truth that they once understood, do not know what to do in their behavior, and lose their focus and perseverance.

“Speaking is like understanding”, many people focus on the understanding of technology, position management or strategy; “being obsessed with the environment”, many people have not consciously cultivated their “resolute execution” of what they know before and no Or there is no control over the subject's consciousness and behavior when executing them.

In financial transactions, faced with the ups and downs of money and the ups and downs of the market, traders have lost their trading plans or rules, have no support, and have begun to unconsciously fall into random transactions. Therefore, there are many famous sayings on Wall Street about these phenomena, and many people are studying transaction psychology and so on. "Plan your deal, trade your plan" is also a typical sentence.

In fact, the discussion about trading mentality is an old topic, and friends who have had a trading experience should understand the impact of trading mentality on the "success or failure" of trading.

At first, many novice traders regarded trading technology as the key to the success or failure of trading when entering the futures market, but after a period of trading, they will find that due to many of our own reasons, we have no way to enforce trading discipline (of course there are still many people attributed to it. I have not found the master key in the trading world, so it is inevitable that some people will fall into the vicious circle of finding the master key. Here we will not make too many comments on such traders). Many friends have also asked me how to build a good trading mentality.

So, let's talk about how to establish a good trading mentality.

First of all, let’s analyze where a good trading mentality comes from. Many people will be curious, why is a mature trader unmoved in the face of changes in money? Have they reached the point of purity of the six roots? What's more, some people deify this kind of trading status, thinking that such traders are as good as monks. In fact, the status of such traders is very good. You need to do the following:

First: You need to close all your current loss positions that do not conform to your trading system. The reason is simple. We ourselves have a tendency to protect ourselves. When we are "harmed" by the outside world, and under the premise that we cannot change the status quo, we are imagining a situation to "protect" ourselves from being hurt. Psychological suffering. This is also the essential reason why many novice traders do not stop losses.

Second: You need to change your current trading logic. Of course, this kind of trading logic can also be called trading thinking. When it comes to thinking, everyone should understand that when we encounter specific events, we have to evaluate the matter through our own thinking mode, and then produce actual actions. .

That is to say, if we have our own trading thinking to analyze before generating a trading action, many people like to use gambling as a metaphor for trading, then we can simply use gambling as an analogy.

Next, there are two ways of gambling for you to choose. The first is that you use the money you win to gamble, and the second is that you use the borrowed money to gamble. Then I don't think anyone chooses the latter. So when it comes to trading, everyone doesn't think so. In fact, many mistakes made in transactions cannot withstand scrutiny in reality, and can be completely denied with some simple and easy-to-see principles.

So how to change your own trading logic? "That is to streamline your own thinking!" Think less of the things that you have said that do not count, and do less of the things that deceive yourself, and be an eye open trader.

Third: forget your "dream" before entering the market. In fact, it is not so much a dream as a fantasy of yourself. When you really enter and have a sense of trading, maybe all your dreams will be "shattered", and the market will subvert all your fantasies and those simple understandings.

Only by honestly respecting the market, simply performing mechanical operations, and not having any illusions about the rise and fall of the market, is the only hope for survival in the market. Please remember that survival is nothing else. The market leaves us with rules in addition to rules.

Of course, mentality is only one aspect of the subject. The combination of the subject's review of the disk, funds, and trading plans, as well as the strength of his execution, is also something you need to control yourself. It is not enough to bear or be indifferent.

Self-control is the first condition for trading profit, and it is also an ability to implement trading behavior. Without self-control, even if you have the skills and capital management, you will eventually inevitably leave the market in pain.

In trading, it may not be possible to always be rational, but you can always ask yourself whether your trading actions are part of the plan and what kind of results it will bring; when I encounter floating losses or floating profits, I How to deal with it; whether I want to trade frequently, whether I really want to fight hard, whether I enter or leave the market at this time, I have to think carefully before acting.

Cannot trade randomly involuntarily. Over time, you will naturally treat your actions more carefully.

Self-control is the focus of trading, which is also the most important watershed that distinguishes it from gambling and trading. Because of self-control, in many cases, it's not luck to trade for you. He is an inner power to execute your trading plan. You can't do anything without him.

If self-control is still not enough, it is better to learn trading psychology or philosophy. But once you have learned it, you still have to implement it consciously and purposefully.

In fact, there is only one reason why you can’t execute in trading, that is, you have not yet clearly understood the importance of trading discipline, and to truly get this kind of understanding, you can only experience a little experience in the repeated defeats of actual trading. After you polish away your own edges and corners, maybe you can honestly trade.

Keep your trading mentality stable. Only a profitable number in your trading account can be achieved. All loss numbers will make you self-protective; and to have account numbers to be profitable, you can only implement iron trading discipline; and To enforce iron trading discipline, one must have an understanding of the nature of a trading market.

In the final analysis, trading is done with your brain. The key to execution lies in your trading thinking. Trading actions are just appearances. If trading thinking changes, the execution of trading rules must be a matter of course, then trading will become a happy thing. Do you still worry about not being able to execute your trading plan? Will there be ups and downs in trading mentality? So do you still fight against your own psychology?
