Hit Singles for Satisfaction

The allure of swinging for the fence [1] is common in the trading world, and it appeals to each of us from time to time. However, that sure doesn’t mean it’s the thing to aim for in our trading from week to week or month to month.

Rather than gunning for home runs at every at-bat, I’m content to hit singles, knowing that getting on base is the biggest key in this game. There are a few advantages and motivating factors to this mentality, so let’s take a quick look at them.

You don’t have to be a hero [2] every day with your trading, so take some heat off yourself and do what you can to get on base. There are a lot of Hall-of-Fame members who weren’t big-time sluggers.

Aim for consistent success in your trading – you don’t have to trade big [3] to find it. Patient progress [4] goes a long way not only for your account, but also for your emotional stability [5] along the way.

Plus, those base hits add up quite nicely.
