Trading the Trend Podcast – EP017 – Stress

Stress in your trading is one of the main reasons traders lose money. Stress can lead to bad illogical decision making such as holding onto losers for too long, cutting winners too short, doubling bet sizes, not taking good signals and even taking too many signals. This week we look at how we can reduce stress in our trading and prevent it from influencing our trading decisions.

The Trading the Trend podcast was created by active trader Chris Chillingworth to share insight, ideas, tips and experience on how to improve as a trend following trader. Self described as a british bearded trend follower who likes rock music, wine and formula one racing.

Trend Following is a strategy that does not make predictions on the stockmarket, but instead looks at reacting to what the price of a market is actually doing. There is no attempt to be right, on the contrary, Trend Followers expect to be wrong most of the time. They focus on killing losses quickly and letting winners run to ensure profitability.

Trend following does not utilise fundamental data to form opinions on what the markets are about to do. It is all about finding a system that works and focusing your energies on executing it accurately.
