Symptoms of Ego-Tizing Trading

  • Not putting in stops. The ego doesn’t want to be proven wrong.


  • Hesitating before putting on a trade. The ego wants reassurance before it begins.


  • Overtrading. The ego wants to prove itself big time.


  • Getting stuck in a trade. The ego has intertwined itself with a trade and is holding on for dear life. It cannot cut out. The ego doesn’t want to be wrong.


  • Adding to a losing trade. The ego digs its hole deeper in a massive effort to crawl out.


  • Grabbing a profit too soon. The ego wants a pat on the back.
