Mind over market

Rapid increase of trading account's size combined with trading live in front of others had an effect on my state of mind and I have noticed myself over-thinking some entries, clogging up & missing more opportunities than I used to.

I immediately focused attention on mental skills and created a free state of mind liquidating unnecessary thoughts & feelings while in action. Here is a good video interview with Mike Douglas "Mind over Market" which inspired me on how to do it.

My results have increased significantly since and I expect May 2013 to be the highest net % return this year with no increase in average draw-down.
