My struggles of emotional attachment – Why is it so hard?

Trading and emotions

I just thought I would give a quick update to where I am with my trading recently. I started this blog to monitor my trading journey and I seem to have veered off it at the moment doing other things.

The last few weeks I have had hardly any time at the ladders. Life seems to get in the way and I have been focused on doing other things.

I started my YouTube channel a few weeks back and just to produce a video for that, takes me all day. (I only have 2 video’s) 🙂 Really I should be prioritising my work. YouTube can wait, I should be at the ladders.

Trading and emotions

I feel as I struggle to stay emotionally detached from my trading it puts me off trading altogether. My bad habits always seem to surface when trades go against me.

I know I need to practise otherwise I will never learn. So what I am doing instead of trading is creating distractions, keeping myself busy doing other things instead of facing my problems I have with trading. It seems a never ending circle at the moment.

The annoying part is I know taking losses is part of the journey. Professional traders will take losses everyday and not bat an eyelid. So why am I finding it so hard?

Traders are rewarded by the quality of their decisions, so as simple as it might sound I just need to be making better decisions.

I need to stick to one thing

I don’t swap and change sports I only trade the horses. But, there are many ways to trade the horses and when I fail at one strategy I start doubting myself and start looking into other strategies. This is my downfall. I need to stick to one plan even when the going gets tough. I’m sure eventually it will all click.

I have been on Its a mugs game course to learn pre-race swing trading, and in November I am going on Hunting for profit’s course for in-running. I will be writing a review on that when I get back. So stay tuned if this is of interest to you.

I also have an online course for scalping the horses as well, so basically I have it all covered. 🙂 Now it’s just a matter of seeing which one I am better at, which one I am enjoying more and stick to it. For like……..forever!

Anyway, that’s my little moan over with. Oh, and I am going on holiday on Saturday for a week, so that’s another week I won’t be trading.

See you all when I get back.
