1.Trading 102: Daytrading Mind traps

The mind can play tricks on us. Intuitive Trading is an attempt to mind read the market, which makes us susceptible to whipsaws. Hindsight Bias causes traders to underestimate the difficulty of trading, while Competency Bias causes us to over-estimate our abilities. These are mental banana peels that set us up for a fall.

Rising bond yields (rising interest rates) should at some point become a bullish element for the raw commodity sector (hard assets).. Make 2017 a great year!!
