Personality and Character in Trading

Our personality is revealed in our trading.  If we are successful, how we engage markets is an expression of who we are:  our skills, our interests, our traits.

Our character is revealed when markets are closed.  It's when we can't put on trades and follow markets that we find out who really works on their game, who actually reviews their performance, who truly sets goal and pushes themselves further and higher.

Lots of market participants love trading.  It's the love of what it takes to sustain trading success that makes all the performance difference.
