Key Lessons

[19:43] If you’re losing money, there’s no point trying to deny the fact you’re losing money and there’s no point being in a situation where you’re just languishing and hoping that you’re going to start making money again soon.

[21:21] The majority of learning and development is done when you’re in a drawdown or having setbacks.

[23:14] A market change or any kind of event that’s market-driven, is outside of the trader’s control.

[29:10] If we go through the market the goal is to start to understand yourself as a risk taker and a decision maker under these conditions of uncertainty.

[38:11] When you get into trading and you’ve been at it for a while, so you understand it a bit better, you have to have a point of realization that goes “this is how it is”.

[40:48] No one’s making you be a trader. You knew it’s going to be tough, therefore, be willing to accept what comes with it. Embrace it.
