Some Trading Wise Words

I found quite a number of good trading quotes from Trading & Motivational Quotes blog.
I think this blog tries to compile the words of wisdom or trading principles from many sources or books.
You can check it out on you own for the whole collections.

Here are some of the quotes from that site that I really like and I hope it can be useful for my readers:

Turtle Trading Principle
Trade with an edge, manage risk, be consistent, and keep it simple.
The entire Turtle training, and indeed the basis of all successful trading, can be summed up in these four core principles.

Curtis Faith, Way Of Turtle

Why Chart Patterns Repeat Themselves
All through time, people have basically acted and re-acted the same way in the market as a result of: greed, fear, ignorance, and hope.
That is why the numerical formations and patterns recur on a constant basis.

Jesse Livermore, How To Trade In Stocks

Stick To Your Trading Rules
Successful trading is about finding the rules that work and then sticking to those rules.

William J. O’neil

Perfect Speculator
Perfect speculator must know when to get in;
More important he must know when to stay out;
And most important he must know when to get out once he’s in.

Emotional Makeup Is More Important
I haven't seen much correlation between good trading and intelligence. Some outstanding traders are quite intelligent, but a few aren't. Many outstanding intelligent people are horrible traders. Average intelligence is enough. Beyond that, emotional makeup is more important.

William Eckhardt

Emotional Discipline: The Key To Trading Success
The key to trading success is emotional discipline. If intelligence were the key, there would be a lot more people making money trading.

Victor Sperandeo

Human Emotion In Trading
Human emotion is both the source of opportunity in trading and the greatest challenge.
Master it and you will succeed.
Ignore it at your peril.

Curtis Faith, Way Of Turtle

What We Can Learn For Trading From A Fable
A monkey was carrying two handfuls of peas. One little pea dropped out. He tried to pick it up and spilt twenty. He tried to pick up the twenty and spilt them all. Then he lost his temper, scattered the peas in all directions and ran away.

Fables, Leo Tolstoy
