In the first article (read here) we talked about the role that the left hemisphere takes when operating and what function it fulfills. We said that with this hemisphere we conceptualize the market in logical formulations that may or may not be helpful when implementing a commercial operation.
The right hemisphere does not need conceptualizations or pure logic to act. It recognizes situations, moments and capable gaps between operational and operational. We do it without the need of specific reasons or facts in order to act. This is what is known as intuition. Intuition is a mechanism, in this hemisphere, that we can develop as a tool. As a trader more than once he would have led your decisions. That voice that tells you, take this trade, take it, but you are not doing it yet because you cannot find the logical formation that your left hemisphere wants to recognize, and it turns out that it is in the direction that voice in your head indicates you.
So here is our first conflict. How can you trade while you can't agree with yourself? It is not a problem of emotions or discipline (these are other factors), we talk about when you are observing a commercial opportunity and you have it in front of your eyes and, on one hand, your mind is telling you to take it and, on the other, is looking for the reasons and justifications that could validate that action. Which it rarely happens and when it does, because it seems logical or reasonable, many times it’s too late to open the position.
The operator then finds himself in a constant dilemma that prevents him from performing to his full potential, in the best possible way. A good operator or an operator who is really beginning to do his job well, understands, in some way, how the mind works in the brain, in the area of intuition and reasoning, and how it reacts to various scenarios. And he understands that he must have a balance between this intuitive way of acting and logical reasoning. So that before the market you are the most effective.
In the next article we will see how we can reach the consonance of our two hemispheres. How can we complement the logic of the left hemisphere with the intuition of the right hemisphere?
