Coaches' Tip for Better Trading: Make the Money Real

Posted by TopstepTrader on October 21, 2017

The Performance Coaches talk to people every week who are displeased by making $200, $300 or $500 trading. Why? Oftentimes, it's because they feel like they should be doing better. "Yeah, I know I made $500 this week, but I wanted to make $1,000." 

We all have long-term goals trading, whether that's to pay off a car or make enough to leave another job. But it works against those goals if we cannot celebrate the successes when we have them. And to do that, the Coaches recommend maintaining a connection with the money - so that even if you make $100 in a week, you can be happy that you paid your cable bill. 

Here are some practical ways that the Performance Coaches have kept a connection with the money they put at risk trading. Hope you enjoy the short video.
