Strong message and a great article .....I have been involved in the gambling and then later on the trading industries since I was a kid and have asked myself many times

am I addicted ?....

Since I have always treated trading as a business I guess the answer is NO

It’s just a source of income that is continually reviewed to ensure it is working efficiently and generating profits .....as it still is

I feel that if stops generating profits then I will cull it ......( I hope !)

As an experienced (and profitable trader I guess), could you let us know what kind of trader you are? I mean manual, algo...or both, technical (with lot of indicators or nude graphic based on price action, etc) or fundamental, swing, intraday or scalper....what assets do you trade? Thanks in advance.

Good article. Just recently I was preparing a presentation and speech on a similar topic "Psychology and neurobiology of gambling addiction" and this service helped me to improve powerpoint presentation design In general, dopamine is to blame for everything (otherwise we didn't know!). Our brains respond to positive experiences (caused by anything) by releasing chemicals that stimulate more of the same behavior, thus completing the dopamine cycle and leaving a patient trapped. No magic. All addictions are pretty much the same by their nature

I'm not sure anyone with an addictive personality can prosper in trading long term unfortunately. Trading should be treated as a tool to facilitate the accumulation of money. It's ok to enjoy your trading but to become "addicted" to it is a dangerous game to play.

Oh yeah I would agree with the poster above having an addictive attitude towards trading will lead to overtrading treating it akin to gambling a complete disaster to any would be trader
