Is Reacting  To News Helping Or 

Hurting Your Trading

A famous financial innovator was giving an interview at a conference. At one

point, he told the story of how the press reported the activity in the market,

and what really happened.

His story began by describing LA rush hour traffic on a freeway looks like

from a helicopter.

He said that from the sky, everything on the freeway looks organized. The cars

What A Crypto Trader Can Learn

From The World’s Most Feared 


The World’s Most Feared Negotiator, the late great Jim Camp, said that all

decisions are emotional and that the job of the professional negotiator is to

reduce emotion and move people to rational decision-making.

Rational decisions in negotiation require a mission, purpose, appropriate

questions and management of your four key budgets. These budgets are

emotion, financial, time and energy. The more you allow your adversary to

Traders require all of these components to make good trading decisions, but

we seldom manage our internal budgets in a systematic way like a professional

negotiator. For the trader, these four budgets are key components of your

internal balance sheet.
