Default Re: Trading is fun?

In my opinion not only is trading fun, but it SHOULD be fun. Why? Because if it's not then it's not really a passion for you.

I treat my trading like a business and I am deadly serious about controlling risk and following my plan. However, just because I do things in a well-defined way and follow a proper methodology doesn't mean there isn't room for enjoyment. I love what I do and so each day I do it adds joy to my life. This, to me, is the very essence of "fun". The enjoyment of each moment.

So take your trading seriously, but be passionate enough about it that just the process itself brings you joy. Not winning, not making loads of money, not bragging to friends. Just learn to love the process. Everything else is secondary.
