Gil Ben Hur on being Zen in the markets and key mental tools. Chris Tate on the nature of mania and The South Sea Bubble.
Gil Ben Hur
Gil and I had a fantastic conversation on managing risk in an unexpected environment and key mental tools to use when trading.
Ever felt taking losses in trading is almost an inhuman task? Gil explains the psychology behind it (12.15 mins) and how we are all trained to be winners in life.
At (16.25mins) we talk on the hardest challenges for traders who work from home and don’t have the advantage of a professional trading environment. Traders have to be prepared to not know the outcome of their trades every day and that darn thing called the human ego gets in the way.
Gil then describes some key attributes of successful traders (17.45 mins).
You will love this part.
Gil says good traders are egoless, they have a ZEN personality, they have self-awareness, they are sensitive to the waves of the market they are riding, they are effective listeners of the market, and they approach the market with calmness and patience.
