OK…So, you’re in a trade and you hear a loud voice that sounds suspiciously like your mother say, “… No, don’t do that, you’ll lose!” But, even though the voice resonates in your head, this is in fact the only place that it can be heard; because it’s coming from you. Thoughts are part and parcel to the trading process. There are mechanical thoughts, for example: “…This zone is too tight so let me check the level on another time frame.” These thoughts have to do with the mechanics of your trade, as in your plan, rationale, set-ups, rules, target and stops; to name a few.
