So much of this is in our head Chrispy, so you are very correct in that statement. Patience and discipline are key aspects of a good trader. If this is a goal of yours that you truly want, never give up. Just keep pushing forward and bit by bit, you can conquer the mental demons. No, it’s not easy and most give up long before they are even close. The key is perseverance and staying the course.

There is a Holy Grail of trading. It is hidden between your ears. I have been at this for a long time. Over 10 years. I started with covered call writing and moved to all manner of options. You name it, I tried it and spent thousands on education . I eventually found my way to Al Brooks and watched all of his videos, most of them twice. I was in his trading room for two years at 100/month. I became convinced that learning to read the chart was the only way to go. Use no indicators. I have tried EVERY one and have the books I bought to prove it. Simplify simplify simplify. I have been on Mack’s site now for three years. I am now just breaking even with my trading. Maybe I am just a slow learner. I continue to fight my own prejudices like counter trend trading. All of this is in my head. I know though that Mack’s way is the right way. Why, because its simple. Doesn’t mean its easy. It still requires tons of practice and screen time. I am seeing what he is teaching. It is getting clearer. So I will just keep going knowing that my Holy Grail is waiting to be found, right inside my own head.
