Trading Success – What it Really Takes

Trading Success – What it Really Takes

Louise says: “I loved this interview with Nell Sloane from Capital Trading Group – Nell has seen it all in the markets.

She’s seen first-hand what makes a winning trader get into their zone where the money falls effortlessly into their account.

She’s also seen traders implode.

I came away marvelling at the similarities between successful traders from around the world. We talk about money scripts that we pass on to our children, how to stay flexible when the world keeps changing and specifics about what you can do to keep your cool while the markets are going crazy.”

Fact Check

In the interview, Nell mentions a book that discusses life stages and life decisions at each stage – here it is – From Strength to Strength by Arthur C Brooks.

At the height of his career at the age of 50, Arthur Brooks embarked on a seven-year journey to discover how to transform his future from one of disappointment over waning abilities into an opportunity for progress. From Strength to Strength is the result, a practical roadmap for the rest of your life.

Drawing on social science, philosophy, biography, theology, and eastern wisdom, as well as dozens of interviews with everyday men and women, Brooks shows us that true life success is well within our reach. By refocusing on certain priorities and habits that anyone can learn, such as deep wisdom, detachment from empty rewards, connection and service to others, and spiritual progress, we can set ourselves up for increased happiness.

Quotable Quote

“Sometimes your trading ability can be challenged as your assets grow. It’s different from just trading your own money. The reasons behind losses can be over-trading and not managing risk appropriately. People with losing traders have trouble pulling the plug.” – Nell Sloane
