Pandora's Box

"The god Prometheus stole fire from heaven to give to the human race, which originally consisted only of men. To punish humanity, the other gods created the first woman, the beautiful Pandora. As a gift, Zeus gave her a box, which she was told never to open. However, as soon as he was out of sight she took off the lid, and out swarmed all the troubles of the world, never to be recaptured. Only Hope was left in the box." Today I'm going to tell you about a single day that changed my life trajectory forever. I'm going to tell you a lot of things today actually, but that is the centerpiece. It's going to start off rather heavy, but turns into what I hope is a very valuable lesson about much more than just trading. I've started and stopped writing this post multiple times, but I think now over a year removed from it, the clarity and lessons I've extracted are too valuable to keep to myself.

The Danger Zone

Hey guys. As you're probably aware by now,  I have a strong affinity to the psychological side of trading and I think it's far more important than anything else. Far more. I've hit most areas of trader psychology in the archived posts on this blog, but there's one in particular I want to go over today, one that I've come to realize is more important than them all. I'm going to refer to it as "The Danger Zone." There are multiple levels to this puzzle on both a macro and micro scale in terms of intraday & bigger picture time frames, which I'll map out for you in a minute and then talk about why they're so important. The Danger Zone is a foe you're going to meet time and time again on a daily basis, so get familiar with it. It's the critical point in any particular trade (micro), or period of time in your trading (macro), where a build up of emotions and stress are going to tempt you to give in to irrational or unjustified action
