Get The Trading Mindset: Your Brain Needs Training

By Rob on June 22, 2017

Reading Time: 3 minutes

The brain is a wonderful muscle. It’s a tool that can be shaped any way we want it to be – even into the trading mindset that all good traders need to have before they can become great traders. Do not think of the brain as a fixed object. It is changing all the time with every new piece of information that it retains. So why not train your brain in the trading mindset, and really get to grips with the trades you are attempting?

The Brain Cannot Be Trained!

It is true that thist used to be the general consensus. The brain was, once we grew into adults, thought to be immovable. Stuck. Done. But that is not the case. Anything it has learned it can re-learn. And anything it still needs to learn, including the trading mindset, can definitely find room.

So what does that mean for your trading? It means that you can always discover the best ways to trade, and retain that information for a later date. If trading is what you want to do, then trading is what your brain needs to be trained up for. Once that is done, you’re good to go.

How Does It Work?

Shaping your brain to become streamlined for the trading mindset is all down to experience. The brain – scientists tell us – can easily adapt to different situations and circumstances when it needs to. And when it comes to trading and getting it right, it definitely needs to. New learning can change the brain too, even down to creating new neural pathways that connect different areas of the mind, attaching importance to the trading mindset like never before.

So I Just Need To Learn How To Trade?

Yes, you do need to learn how to trade, but that is not all you need to do. You need to reprogram your brain so that it all happens automatically and the trading mindset is not something you even need to think about. This is when the real experts can enjoy their trading without worry. Trading then becomes less like gambling because there is an almost guaranteed result. This is when you can start making money. The trading mindset and a trained brain are all you need to do it.

Sounds Easy!

It does, doesn’t it? But this is not simply a case of remembering what to do. You need to get to a point where you are so far into the trading mindset that you do everything automatically, and then forget all about it until you go back to it the next day. Constantly worrying about your trading will reshape your brain in a different direction, putting concern and anxiety in the place where confidence and knowledge need to be.

The subconscious is what is important when it comes to the trading mindset. It needs to be as much a set and forget process as humanly possible.

Where To Start?

trading mindsetThe best way to begin when it comes to the trading mindset is to pick a method and stick to it. Chopping and changing between trading methods will not train your brain. You need to find the one that works for you and then stick with it. This allows time for your new neural pathways to become fixed. The more an action is performed, the more the brain shapes itself around that action – and the easier it becomes.

Muscle memory is an important factor in learning the trading mindset. It is an automatic response to a learned behaviour. This is ideal for cryptocurrency trading, where the relentless news flow can drive emotionally undisciplined decisions.

Conclusion

Traders and investors who want to switch between styles need an alert mind. With listed assets prices being out of kilter due to quantity easing, is your mind able to pick up what it needs to do art investing? The recent market rally has been driven by momentum investing but what what happens if we return to a value style?

One clue would be watch what Warren Buffet invests in, as he swears by it. This would still require you to assimilate a new kind of information. A disciplined trader when undertaking a new trade idea will know what to watch out for. There are also the typical mistakes new traders make, do you know how to avoid these?

Remember the difference between a winner and loser is small. A loser loses the same way every time. A new trader who has winning trades also loses a lot, but learns from their losing trades and ensures they rarely happens again.
