I am paraphrasing an email I received today:

Thus, if you over think or over analyze your trade, try to force it, or try to be too perfect with your performance, you are guilty of getting in your own way.

Most of the time, traders get in their own way because of fear of failure or perfectionism.

When you get out of your own way, you allow yourself to trade freely without expectations or pressure. You allow yourself to just do it and trust in your skills.

Two mental keys can help you get out of your own way:

(1) Understand the core issue that blocks your performance and cope better with this, such as fear of failure, fear of embarrassment, or perfectionism.

(2) Learn how to let go and trust what you have trained yourself to do in practice. We call this the performance mindset.

You decide your fate; the market doesn’t.

Hello piper:

Each trader must find their own way.  Doesn't matter if they use indicators or not so long as they are consistently profitable.

Thank you for your kind words.
