A little risk management saves a lot of fan cleaning!
The Purpose of Life is Joy!!
I'm Brian, aka Pandawarrior.
I'm a dad, husband, oil trader, traveler and investor in humanitarian projects I like.
I'm also a mortgage banker with a large national bank. I enjoy this (most of the time) and it gets me away from the screens for most of the day! I've also owned and operated a large insurance agency with a national top five insurance company.
In 2008-2010, the housing bust here in Arizona took everything away.
And so in an attempt to recover what I'd lost, I turned to trading after a friend said I should look into it.
That started me down the road of looking for the Holy Grail of trading trying to find a set of indicators that I could turn a small amount of money into instant riches with. This was a lengthy process and a complete fools errand.
What I've come to believe is this: To make money, a trader must have the correct set of beliefs in order for correct behavior to be exhibited. Correct beliefs equals correct behavior.
Most traders think of their trading in terms of just making money but the truth is, the money is just a by-product of doing things right over time. Much like other professionals, we get paid to do things right.
