Key Quotes:

“If you don't have absolute confidence in your rules, as soon as you have a bit of a dip in your account, most people will freak out and start misbehaving. You know, they'll bend the rules or break the rules, they'll start trying to trade more aggressively to make their money back, or they'll stop taking trades, because they're afraid of losing more, you know, all of these behaviors are inconsistent.” - Adrian Reid

“Have a set of rules that is profitable and build absolute confidence in those rules. Because if you have absolute confidence, you can follow them, you can have the discipline.” - Adrian Reid
