Habits #7
  • Plan the trade and trade the plan

The road to success is dependent on not only our performance, but also in the methodical practice we consistently put into the performance. Trading mastery is a function of understanding market patterns, rehearsing execution skills for trade entries and exits, as well as learning from endless market responses. Without a trade plan, our emotions become obstacles and we become susceptible to overwhelming feelings of fear and greed. Planning the trade and trading the plan is the practice you need to develop as a tool to overcome these emotions.
