Flexible, Free, Brutal… Adapt For Opportunity
“There will never be another year like 2020.”
For most people, especially traders, that statement will likely ring true for a lifetime.
Challenges from all areas of life hit traders and the market like never before. And much of what challenged the trading lifestyle has continued this year as traders face a sporadic market that just won’t settle down.
So what can traders learn from these challenges to make a mark in the last half of this year? Here are some helpful insights:
- Be flexible — Learn to adapt, adjust, improve at every turn
- Be free — Don’t get overwhelmed by the “weight of the world” or market chaos
- Be brutal — Focus only on what works and quickly discard anything else
This doesn’t mean “being” like this as a trader will be easy. Adapting to an unsettled market that really no one has traded before is a tall challenge. There is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding such efforts.
Being flexible, free, and brutal often requires simplifying trading efforts to a few key elements. Meeting these challenges requires improving skills and settling into a defined system for trading.
Overcoming the challenges of this volatile market can be helped by:
- Following time-tested strategies and using proven tools
- Trading on smaller time frames to manage risk
- Focusing on daily windows of time and opportunity
