The Making Of The Modern Trader Dare To Trade
To understand how much courage it takes to be a trader, take
the traderís journey.

The markets are not sympathetic to the meek.
Few professions require as much courage
as trading does. For the most part, traders
do battle from the time they come into the
profession until they retire. From the initial education phase, to fighting the negativity of significant
others, to the challenge of finding a methodology that works,
there always seems to be another hurdle to face. Then, the
difficulties of environmental issues, psychological issues,
and the ever-changing markets must be added to the mix.
Each new step that must be taken and each new issue that
must be addressed requires courage. The rewards of money,
excitement, and conquering personal demons are what
motivate traders to tackle each challenge and to summon up
the requisite bravery.
