Psykologi- "Successful traders must also possess a reasonable degree of risk tolerance and an unusual degree of emotional resilience. "

If you can’t change or control what the market is doing, then the only option you have left is to control yourself in a way that allows you to perceive what the market may do next with increased clarity and objectivity, requiring a thorough working knowledge of the nature of your inner environment in relationship to the outer physical environment.

Mark Douglas

Losing is part of trading. The best traders don’t get perturbed by losing trades, since over the long run they know they will be successful more often than not. When you
are afraid of losing, you end up losing or missing opportunities because you are afraid to trade.

Ari Kiev

The key to trading success is emotional discipline. If intelligence were the key, there would be a lot more people making money trading… I know this will sound like a cliche, but the single most important reason that people lose money in the financial markets is that they don’t cut their losses short.

Victor Sperandeo

Successful traders must also possess a reasonable degree of risk tolerance and an unusual degree of emotional resilience.

Brett Steenbarger

Human beings are subject to wild swings in their levels of fear, risk tolerance and greed. That won’t change. I base my whole approach on buying when others are fearful and selling when others are greedy. The reason Shakespeare is so relevant still today is that his plays were all about human nature, and human nature never changes.

Mark Sellers

I think investment psychology is by far the more important element, followed by risk control, with the least important consideration being the question of where you buy and sell.

Tom Basso

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs it is the rule.


The single most important advice I can give anybody is: Learn from your mistakes. That is the only way to become a successful trader.

David Ryan

I know of a few multimillionaires who started trading with inherited wealth. In each case, they lost it all because they didn’t feel the pain when they were losing. In those formative first few years of trading, they felt they could afford to lose. You’re much better off going into the market on a shoestring, feeling that you can’t afford to lose. I’d rather bet on somebody starting out with a few thousand dollars than on somebody who came in with millions.
