How Expectations Shape Your Trading


Expectations control our trading behavior in many different forms and it is, thus, very important to regularly check our expectations so that we can make sure that we are not unconsciously affected by expectations.

Especially new traders can suffer from having unreasonably high expectations if they are not aware.

In this lesson, we want to open your eyes for expectations and for what is realistic. Of course, by scaling up the risk, you could also potentially improve your return, but it also increases variance – which is a topic that we will cover later.
