Comfort zone - what a dreadful American term.

Not a bad article nevertheless.

None right at this minute, maybe there isn't a better one. But "comfort zone" smacks of spurious scientific precision, coupled with a hint of condescension from the user.

"Comfort zone" is typically modern Yukspeak which lacks definition but has fluid boundaries & meaning, invaluable to those wishing to communicate successfully with the maximum number of followers; hence beloved by politicians.

A useful expression for those trying to flog something.

I always think of 'Comfort Zone' and 'Being stuck in a Rut' as two sides of the same coin

I think "comfort zone" pretty much says it.

Its well understood what it means, but it also says additional things about the writer, and how they view their readership: and these are negative.

I can't think why he'd want a negative perception of himself. Perhaps he doesn't care, but that undermines the motivation to write for others' benefit. Perhaps he hasn't realised his words might mean more than he thought.

So my conclusion is he knows his subject but is nevertheless what us Brits would call a prat.

Before you trade even single penny on the stock market, please spend the time and educate yourself by back testing different trading strategies and ideas - go to eBay and search for "historical stock market data", you can buy 20 years of data for less than $100 - that's all you need to start.

I can really related to this because in the past when I would have a loss I'll be looking for the newest set up, or trading plan. Until I realize in order to trade successfully one must deal with being uncomfortable.
