    Default Trading Quotes

    Are there any quotes you can share, or something you think which helps you when you're trading?

    I'll start with:

    “It’s not whether you’re right or wrong that’s important, but how much money you make when you’re right and how much you lose when you’re wrong.”

    - George Soros

    How true that quote is.

    At the height of the interent boom my old company launched an internet unit trust, investing in all dot.coms etc. Fund was launched at 50p and I said t he market was significantly overvalued. I kept saying that as the unit price hit 140p. In the long run I was right as it now languishes at around 23p after hitting a low of about 15p.

    Would of gone bust if I had tried to capitilise on my view despite being right. When the lemming come in they willl still keep jumping off the cliff.

    Losing hurts everyone. I've said before loads of times how ppl have got to control their emotions better etc...... but I think its easy for pros to say. Even if you've been doing this for years a losing day or two hurts, as does unexpected things happening in the market. I think most peoples 'mindset' gets cured when they start winning and get a little confidence behing them. Until then I thinks its just a matter of taking as much punishment as you can and still coming back for more, thats what seperates those that make it and those who dont

    Very wise words imho.

    Be sure why you’re going into the market. Know what you’re planning to do. Have an exit strategy.
