In our last postI talked about the incredible power of having a mindset of gratitude, and how it can greatly help your trading. A perceptive reader, aptly called Attitude Subconscious trading, mentioned that gratitude was the most important part of his daily routine.
Now the question I have is, which word in that sentence do you think is the most important one? The Unconscious Always Wins The reason for this is that we all have a great deal of subconscious trading programming.
