Trend Bending Continued

Traders are always trying to work out what happens next. But in the process of becoming convinced of something we actively block out information which doesn’t fit with our narrative. We become openly hostile to those who have an opposing view. We become biased.

It’s extremely tough to avoid this. Myself, even after 7 years in permabear recovery, I still don’t like being long stock indexes and have to force myself to take the setups as they appear.
