What South African Traders can Learn from Visualisation Technique

I have to say, trading Forex is not for the faint hearted. Many opportunities present themselves to you but it’s not as easy as grabbing it with both hands – and laughing all the way to the bank.
Deep thinking, critical decision making and toying between this strategy or that strategy, is what it really comes down to. I suppose sometimes it can become a little overwhelming.

Luckily, though, we equip our traders with all the tools they need to make sound decisions with a clear mind even amidst the momentary chaos they may find themselves in. We’ve been there, and we understand that trades can become stressful. That’s why we want to let you in on a little secret, a technique that the professionals use to stay calm under chaos and level headed under duress. It’s the art of creating a vision behind your eyes, a technique cognitive psychologists call ‘Visualisation’.

Between trades, practise visualising a ‘safe room’ – an ultra-secure haven that fully protects you from the slings and arrows of outrageous trading flying around outside. This place will serve as an inner retreat, a place you can go to, to intensely focus on the strategies you have set up, shut out the noise of the external world and make hard headed decisions, while shielded from the chaos even when you are physically in the midst of it.

You can also create an inner persona for yourself that, like the safe room, you can draw upon when the trading bullets start flying. Visualise yourself as a hunter, waiting still and silent for as long as it takes until the right target comes into reach and you have the opportunity to pounce. Premature and belated moves are costly. Striking precisely at the right moment is where the success lies.

These are just two of the many visualisation strategies. Ultimately, you want to find ways to keep calm under chaos and level headed under duress because this is what makes a great trader.
