Mindfulness and Trading

I am a huge fan of the concept of mindfulness ever since my thesis advisor introduced me to it.

Along with my thesis partner, we did a lab experiment inquiring into the effects of mindfulness and stress on decision making in crisis management scenarios.  The results have been profound and I have been hooked unto it since then!

Mindfulness has been applied in a variety of settings with great results. There is a ton of literature out there. I will blog about it too in subsequent posts 🙂

My practice of mindfulness has been at the most limited and only on and off. I would like to apply whatever little practice I had of it, in conjunction with my knowledge of decision making biases to day trading index futures contracts on the Indian NSE Nifty 50 futures market & WTI crude oil futures contracts on the MCX commodities exchange.

This blog will be a journal of my trades and will try to capture to the extent possible, whatever is running in my mind (and heart!) on that day and hour when the trade was executed and some general overall forecasting remarks!

Disclaimer: None of this is intended to be investing/ trading advice by any stretch of imagination. I am responsible for my own trades arising out of conviction and faith in my decision making abilities, but am not responsible for yours! 🙂
