Metaphors For Trading by Ruth Barrons Roosevelt
The metaphors we use in our lives can be powerful emotional symbols, and how we view the market is reflected in those metaphors. Change those metaphors and develop a more successful attitude. Here's how.
The creation of metaphors that empower is one more tool you can use to enhance your trading. The metaphors you use regarding your trading have a direct impact on your approach to trading and consequently
on your profitability.
Usually, we donít choose metaphors consciously, and yet theyíre in the back of our minds guiding our interpretation of whatís happening and our expectations
of what will occur. Sometimes they support us and sometimes they donít. A metaphor is a comparison of one thing to another. Lifeís a bowl of cherries, say some. Lifeís the pits, say others. Lifeís a bitch and then you die. Itís a jungle out there. Lifeís a ball! A picnic. A contest. A game.
