Many thanks Richard

It's already on my Kindle
Looking forward to start reading it, after I finish the Power of Habit. ... ...

So I'm trying to slow down but it's not been easy. How in gods name to you control your nervous system when you have no sense that you are nervous?

Arnie, download the guided meditation MP3s from the website link in book and get started. You can do the 'Three Minute Breathing Space' meditation many times a day as needed. You control your nervous system by being aware of how it is working. Slowing down, yes, and being mindful (more aware) in the process.

Too much New Age for most (although very old in fact), but look up some books on Internal Family Systems and Jungian Archetypes (parts psychology) that may help too.

Wishing you well. Good health is a prerequisite for trading too of course.
