I’m an assistant coach for my son’s little league game and he’s playing 3rd base the other day in a game. A shallow pop fly is hit his direction.
The moment I realize it’s his play, I hold my breath and eagerly await the outcome. I want so badly for him to catch it. I want him to get that boost and hear the cheers for the play that he made. The few seconds felt like forever, giving me more than enough time to wonder… have we practiced those enough?
Thoomp! He caught it! My hope immediately turned into excitement and I WHOOHOO’d in celebration. Lots of fun!
Those of you who trade also know the feeling.
You’re in a position and you can’t wait for the outcome. The anticipation of potential gains or losses is killing you as the stock upticks and downticks, taking your emotions with it on every move.
Just like my son’s game and that pop fly was out of my control, so is your trade. All I can do to help my son is to prepare with him ahead of the games, just as you must prepare your trade before you put it on.
Have a plan and stick with it today!
Trade Like a Bandit!
