Can you pull a trigger?
Or do you hesitate?
Are you afraid?
This is vital stuff, and you need to recognize this about yourself.
We’ll go into the why some other time, but let if suffice for now to say that trigger dynamics are part of basic risk-profiling, and if one’s market movement is not as per one’s risk-profile, things generally go wrong.
Back to triggers.
Cast aside pulling, are you able to recognize a trigger?
What comes before recognition?
Have you defined market triggers?
Everyone has a different definition of when to act.
You need to know when you are going to act.
No ifs, no buts, just clear-cut action.
Your system will tell you that it’s time for action.
You do a double-check.
Are you recognizing what your system is telling you?
Is what it’s telling you recognized by your mind as a time to act?
What is the action, you ask?
Why are you asking that?
You have to define the action too.
Just like you defined the conditions for action, you also define what exactly the action is going to be.
When you act, you pull a trigger. The quantum and style of your action is your follow-through after the trigger is pulled.
Make it mechanical.
As much as possible.
