Trading cliches & expressions - the ones you really hate!

The trading world is full of cliches & expressions, some of them are creditable but a lot of them are just cop-outs.

Here is my attempt at cliche bashing, feel free to join in

CLICHE: "No one ever went broke taking profits"

What it really means: "I've lost the last 2 trades and my confidence is low, my latest position is up +5, I'm feeling frightened and I dont want another loser so I'm going to take profit now"

The bend at the end of a trend is anything but a friend. (just made that one up!)

Better to be out wishing you were in than in wishing you were out = I'm too scared to trade.
