Most Important Trading Lesson Learned

“We spend so much time focusing on our ‘edge’ and eventually we move on to work in risk and positioning management. Over so many years, though, I find that the most important progress I’ve made was through working on my own behavior or psychology. A sound analysis to establish probabilities is straightforward, but our perspective and interpretations are rarely so clear cut.“
