The best predictors of trading and investment performance

best predictorsThe best predictors of trading and investment performance is the amount of time market participants spend in their preparation–particularly when markets are closed. If traders’ motivation is limited to making money, there is little reason to work on one’s craft outside of market hours. Indeed, the primary motivation to make money virtually ensures diminished drive during periods of loss–periods when traders most need to learn from experience and adapt to market conditions. The investor who is motivated by research, discovery, and self-improvement makes little distinction between time when markets are open and closed. Their motivation is an intensely personal, intrinsic one. Brett Steenbarger
