Why do we over-trade?

Frustrating isn’t it? Not being able to stop yourself looking for more trades.

Addictive isn’t it? Watching and waiting for the next good signal that could mean massive profits?

Soul destroying when you know you shouldn’t be doing it. Even more so when you make a bigger loss than if you’d just stopped trading for the day.

So why do you do it?

There are lots of reasons. Here are some of them:

  • Lacking direction
  • Enjoying the rollercoaster
  • Unable to accept failure
  • Constantly trying to disprove internal image
  • Feeling desperate
  • Implied pressure

Let’s break these down a bit. You’ll have already spotted that some may overlap.

Wheels Off The Wagon For The UK


It did not really matter whether the excuse for the Flash Crash in the Great British Pound last week was due to a fat finger, a rogue algorithm , or simply massive selling pressure, it was an accurate reflection of the state of play as far as the financial and political scene in the UK.

This week it was followed by a half balked / panic U turn from Prime Minister May, where she conceded that predominantly Remain Parliament would be allowed to debate the manner of our Brexit from the EU. Presumably this is on the condition that they do not demand to vote against the will of the people, although This would get them into the setup the Scots are now being served by with the prospect of the SNP offering a second referendum to leave the UK. Where they will go, and how they will pay for it without Westminster cash remains a moot point. But all of this has to put further pressure on the UK currency and Gilts – not helped by the alleged €20bn EU divorce bill, which presumably the Scots will not have to pay.
