When we trade with fear, it is hard to think clearly.
Not thinking clear will block your way of looking at the markets from an objective view, so you miss out on information that can help you in your trading.
By using numbers, you can activate different parts of your brain that help you lose the fear.
Try to scale your fear from 1 to 5, 5 being the most terrified it is possible to be and 1 being the fearless state.
"What number on the scale am I right now? "
Just doing this will help you overcome and control fear because it kick-starts the thinking brain.
You are taking control, weakening the emotion, and automatically making you calmer to think clearly.
To stay in this mindset, you want to follow a proven system with simple trading rules.
