Integrity in Life & Trading

It’s pretty simple.  Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching. This principle works in trading, as well as in everyday life. First, you must start with defining your standard, so that you know what the “right” thing is.  In the trading world, that means having an established plan.  If you want to become an excellent trader, you need to start with a well-thought out (& written down) plan with rules and processes to follow.  Without a plan, you simply can’t have integrity because there is nothing to adhere to and no ground work on which to focus.  Simply put, this is no way to operate, if you are looking for success.

A Lack of Integrity?

Sometimes we sabotage our own efforts.  We don’t follow our own rules, then we blame the market, or the indicator we are using, for our failure.  We condemn ourselves for having a bad trade or series of them, and then we experience guilt for not being successful.  It’s easy to get stuck in this cycle, and it’s definitely not productive.  This lack of integrity will cause problems time and time again.  If you can’t keep yourself accountable to following your stated rules, it might be time to find people who are willing to walk along side of you to help you stay on your path.
