I just recently came from holiday as well. I decided not to do any trading while on it. Unfortunately I had too much time on my hands and ipad. I just couldn't resist to do a bit "hobby" trading. I lost 30% of my account in few days. Next time no ipad for me 😊

Hey man. Great video... How much did you initially put into your account? I'm brand knew to this.

Great video Chris - Pychology like you've mentioned in depth before, in my eyes is the HOLY GRAIL to trading. Master thyself first, if you want to master the markets!!
Chris Chillingworth (2 months ago)
Absolutely. This is why trading is so hard for most to grasp. Always searching for the best system or the best indicator to use or the best markets to trade. Those people always lose until they eventually realise, if ever, that it's about them and their decision making in the moment. Thanks for watching Phil.

Refreshingly candid Thanks Chris PS Are you a full-time trader?
Chris Chillingworth (4 months ago)
Not anymore. I have moved to End of Day so it only takes 30 mins a day to check positions. I'm building the lifestyle I want, which doesn't involve sitting behind a screen all day. But for some, being into the markets all day is exactly what they want. You gotta find whats right for you really.

Hi, how stressful do you find spreadbetting on a daily basis? Do you have a full time job outside of spreadbetting?
Ding Bat Driving (6 months ago)
Yep, that's what I meant. I suppose some of this comes down to greed.
Chris Chillingworth (6 months ago)
Not stressful at all now I have proper risk management in place. If its stressful its often because you are trading above your own personal risk tolerance. I run 3 businesses and have some property. All contributes to my income. I don't have a 9-5 if that's what you mean.

Such a useful and powerful video, Strange that this was released 5 days before my birthday which was also the day I began trading a live account, My journey since that point has been really close to your own first couple of years (Lazy analysis, Felling left out if i don't have a trade open ect...) This makes me really wish i had seen this video back in March, Saying that though who knows if i would had listened as I find i learn more from my own mistakes than that of others. either way great video so thank you and glad i found your channel.
Chris Chillingworth (7 months ago)
Thanks man. Chuffed you are getting some value from the vids. :)

ValleyCarpers (1 year ago)
I've had this and I actually stepped away from trading, but recently got back into it. I'm not taking more time with trades and just setting my self of a target of £300 a day so far this week I've made over £4000. I know this is just luck but the trades I put on I know I could afford

Honest review about learning yourself better. But I can say that most newbie traders have these problems before becoming profitable as a trader.

Quality video, don't find many people posting videos on spread betting, I'm glad I found your channel. You don't pay taxes on spread betting profits right?
Reverence Media (1 year ago)
Chris Chillingworth Thanks, I've been looking at spread betting due to the low deposit you need to start trading, so many people trading NASDAQ and the high volatility/liquidity/volume seems like the most favourable way to go. Added bonus that's there's no taxes on profits 😊
Chris Chillingworth (1 year ago)
Absolutely. Pretty much every market you can think of. I use IG.com personally.
Reverence Media (1 year ago)
Chris Chillingworth Awesome, also can you spread bet against NASDAQ listed companies? And what platform are you using?
Chris Chillingworth (1 year ago)
Thanks. Yeah, no taxes to pay on Spreadbetting.

Another excellent video. The human condition means we're so very quick to system hop, overtrade, fear missing out. Every loss is a lesson we must take on board.
Chris Chillingworth (1 year ago)
Thanks man.
