Essence of trading refers to the roots, the key ingredients, and the spirit that one needs to be successful with trading. It is a collection of my thoughts on these important aspects on trading.

Trading is not just the means to make a profit. As a trader risking your own money also means a unique perspective in things all around us. That makes us somewhat different from the rest of the crowd.
