BarroMerics Views: Weight Loss and Trading
Firstly apologies for delaying the blog on the S&P, technical picture. I underestimated the time it would take to effect my travel plans. I’ll post the promised blog on Friday. There will be no blog tomorrow, Thursday, May 5.
A very absorbing article in the NY Times on weight loss. I attach the article.
The questions it raises for me:
- For some newbies, does the initial losing experience causes our body and brain to release chemicals similar to those engaged in severe weight loss?
- If so: the article mentions intervention methods, for those on a diet, that successfully our biological responses, are there mirror methods for trading newbies?
I don’t know the answers. But, the question bear thinking about. Certainly it would address the issue of why so many continue to behave in a way that ensures trading failure. And behaving in this way even though the know better.
