Trading is more than pressing buy/sell buttons in the terminal. This is the practice of interaction with a special reality, which is the market, and most importantly – with oneself. After all, the trader is responsible for everything that happens with the deposit. The way a trader thinks and acts is the basis of his results.

Trading, like any activity, has intellectual and volitional aspects.

Intellectual is a study of the market in order to detect features, patterns in market movements. Sometimes it slides into the plane of forecasting. I agree with the opinion: “an analyst is not a trader”

Volitional – decision-making based on knowledge, experience, skills. To react.

It was a surprise for me to learn from my own experience and deposit that “to know” and “to be able to do” diverge in practice.
