Hi guys, hi from Andrea Unger! Whether trading is stressful or not is certainly an intersting question. Many people believe that systematic trading causes less stress than discretionary trading. Is it true?

Although it is different from discretionary trading, systematic trading can still be a great source of stress, and this is the reason why I sometimes go and take a walk on the beach in order to relax a little bit.

Even though I trade automatically, so my systems are trading alone on the cloud server, I must admit that stress is always present in my daily routine.

This is obviously normal, because, as systematic traders, we have to take care of our systems, analyse the performances, and so on and so forth. We try to detach ourselves from trading, but we are never able to do that completely.

This is the reason why doing something that helps us relax is of crucial importance.

Some people practice sports, and this is certainly a good idea. Another good idea is indulging in a hobby, something you really like.

Whatever you decide to do, the key concept is that you don’t devote 100% of your time and mental power to trading, because that would be very likely to kill your business.

Stay tuned, Ciao!

Andrea Unger here and I help retail traders to improve their trading, scientifically. I went from being a cog in the machine in a multinational company to the only 4-Time World Trading Champion in a little more than 10 years. I've been a professional trader since 2001 and in 2008 I became World Champion using just 4 automated trading systems. In 2015 I founded Unger Academy, where I teach my method of developing effecting trading strategies: a scientific, replicable and universal method, based on numbers and statistics, not hunches, which led me and my students to become Champions again and again. Now I'm here to help you learn how to develop your own strategies, autonomously. This channel will help you improve your trading, know the markets better, and apply the scientific method to financial markets. Becoming a trader is harder than you think, but if you have passion, will, and sufficient capital, you'll learn how to code and develop effective strategies, manage risk, and diversify a portfolio of trading systems to greatly improve your chances of becoming successful.
