Self-Management For Traders

Trading in futures can be treacherous to your wealth and to your overall health and well-being as well.  No sooner than being out of the gate with a trade you may see yourself losing money. It is said that 95 percent or more of people who try trading in futures and their options end up summarily losing what they put down.  Nonetheless, futures markets can be alluring.

Trading in futures requires dedicated and disciplined perseverance. Strong discipline and behavioral self-management helps greatly to cope with market movements and to maintain one’s wits. You may have trouble adjusting yourself to the discipline and lifestyle mindset required. Eg, when a trader in futures has a losing trade, she may panic and try to correct the situation with a move that puts her in a more precarious position.

If you have traded or want to trade commodities and feel frazzled, or tired, or anxious, overwhelmed, and generally just too stressed, Dr. Nancy Mroczek, a Behavioral Expert and former Licensed Commodities Trading Advisor, can help you with management of yourself and your trading for a more agreeable, smoother, and profitable result.  She can help you manage your personal behavior, your risk management, and your trading discipline  with behavior and goals tailored specifically to your unique person and style. Acquiring greater skill, behavior, and a lifestyle frame of mind required to deal with inevitable losses, decision making, reactions while trading, and adherence to disciplined perseverance can give trading in commodities futures a greater chance of success.
