STOCKS & COMMODITIES Editor Jayanthi Gopalakrishnan spoke to Van Tharp on September 6, 2006, and put together this interview with a combination of the spoken conversation and written answers.

Q: Why is it so important to take an inventory of your skills, temperament, time, resources, strengths, and weaknesses before you trade?

A: People will not trade a system competently unless it fits them. It has to fit who they are and their current lifestyle. For example, if you have a full-time job, you probably would have trouble daytrading or even swing trading. You have to design a system that really fits your personality. But itís more elaborate than that. First, you donít trade the markets, you trade your beliefs, so itís important to take an inventory of your beliefs. I believe there are three categories of beliefs.
