Foreword

When one thinks about successful traders it’s easy to imagine colourful individuals making large, high risk bets on the direction of international markets, almost on a whim – and then scooping the prize as their ‘punts’ come good. There will always be a few charismatic risk takers amongst the world’s traders who, by a quirk of fate or an intuitive reading of an economic situation, make a fortune and live up to that image. The truth is that the vast majority of the world’s successful traders do not match that stereotype at all.

Rather they are diligent, disciplined and not prone to erratic behaviour. In fact many successful traders could almost be described as robotic or systematic in their approach to the markets. This may go some way to explain the rising popularity of algorithmic trading methods over the last decade or so.

Just as in the fable of the hare and the tortoise, the trading race is not a sprint and a slow and steady approach will often outshine a frantic burst of activity at the beginning of a trading journey. Set out below are ten things that brilliant traders do and do well. If you can follow these guidelines, then you will be on the right road as far your trading journey is concerned.

Foreword

Das populäre Bild eines erfolgreichen Traders ist oft das eines wilden Spekulanten, der oder die nach Belieben enorme und höchst riskante Wetten über die Richtung der internationalen Märkte abschließt – und anschließend den Gewinn abstaubt, wenn sich die jeweilige Prophezeihung erfüllt.

Tatsache ist, es wird immer ein paar charismatische Risikoträger unter den Tradern dieser Welt geben, die durch einen Glücksfall oder die eine oder andere intuitive Erkenntnis über die wirtschaftliche Situation, ein Vermögen machen und zu diesem Image beitragen. Die Wahrheit jedoch ist, dass die überwiegende Mehrheit der erfolgreichen Trader nicht diesem Stereotypen entspricht. Vielmehr sind dies fleißige, disziplinierte und gegenüber jeglichem irrationalen Verhalten resistente Anleger. In der Tat könnte man viele der erfolgreichsten Trader fast wie Roboter in ihrer Annäherung an die Finanzmärkte beschreiben. Diese Tatsache kann in gewisser Weise mitunter auch die steigende Popularität von algorithmischen Trading-Methoden in den letzten rund zehn Jahren erklären. Genau wie in der Fabel vom Hasen und vom Igel, ist das Rennen um den Erfolg im Trading keineswegs ein Sprint, sondern erfordert einen stetigen und konsistenten Ansatz – was in den meisten Fällen jegliche überstürzte Aktivität und den einen oder anderen Glückstreffer zu Beginn der Handelstätigkeit weit in den Schatten stellt. Im Folgenden lernen Sie zehn Merkmale kennen, die erfolgreiche Händler heutzutage besitzen müssen. Wenn Sie diese Richtlinien aufmerksam und gewissenhaft befolgen, dann werden auch Sie bald auf dem richtigen Weg zu Ihrem Erfolg sein – ungeachtet davon, wie weit Ihre Trading-Reise gehen soll.
