If you Believed that the next flip is more likely to be tails because “tails is due to come up” this is whats is known as gambler’s fallacy, a great example of availability bias. i.e availability bias occurs when our estimates of probabilities are influenced by what is most “available” .

Traders wisdom part 6

The comparison is often made between Traders and athletes but there,s one main difference with them and a trader .


Practice day in day out in preparation for there game, which may only last a few hours .

“Football, running, boxing, etc “

They work on weaknesses in training then strengths in the lead up to an event and during the event itself in order of executing there Game plan .

2 ) DayTrader

For traders we must day in day out execute OUR game plan

Our game intensity is on a much harder level continually 24/5 and we must be ready to act and always be on our game .


This is not to take away from what athletes do when they “train” hard to create success and execute there Game plan , but to simply point out that slight difference in comparison where both arenas differ completely .

To perform consistently we as Traders must think consistently making a daily commitment to implement our winning mindset / Trade plan irrespective of the outcome of any individual trade that takes place each Day .

The only Game on the planet where the world gets together and Financial warfare takes place … Fortunes are made and lost not with the sound of a Gun but a click of a button .

We must always Take first place we cannot afford to come in second and join the 95% of traders who simply fall by the wayside .

Mental preparation and 100 % focus is needed in this game ~
