28th September – don’t trade on your birthday!

Today is my birthday. I never trade on my birthday. And I suggest you do the same.

What’s the point? You’re a trader and unless you’re working for an institution my suggestion is to take the day off. There’s nothing worse than waking up on your birthday in a good mood (which you should do regardless of your age) and then ruining it through some poor losing trades. Why ruin your day?

Instead, go and enjoy your day with the people who are important to you and be grateful that you work in a role that allows you to manage your own time like this. Take stock of what you’ve achieved this last year and set some goals for the next year of your life. Enjoy yourself – you’ve earned it!

Trade well….but not on your birthday!
