Our first trader is Ned. Ned is an off-the-floor trader who day trades who day trades the S&P 500 Futures. He’s been trying to be consistently successful for the last six months. Unfortunately, it hasn’t worked out very well. But it’s not because of his methods that he’s having so much trouble. No, the main reason Ned is not making the kind of money he wants is because he cannot control his emotions and consistently act in his own best interest..
