Avoid ‘Click Happy’ Emotions When Trading

2021-07-15

Earnings rise, earnings fall; rally up, pull back; virus slows, virus spreads — so much up-and-down news creates a set of emotional challenges for traders.

Traders square off against a flurry of feelings every trading session and the importance of keeping emotions in check is front and center these days.

Wild markets can derail trading plans when emotions rule during a surging market or shifting momentum goes against positions.

Where were your emotions in the middle of another mixed session today?

Simpler’s traders work hard daily to guard against letting emotions run straight through their “clicking arm” to their computer mouse. “Click happy” trades can lead to entering positions that create even more unhealthy emotions, especially if the trading account takes a hit.
