Why is evaluating our trading ability beneficial?

The majority of traders entering the market are driven by so-called achievements. We all seek mastery, insight, and market success, just like any other sport. When we make our judgment publicly available for our trading ability, we are activating that competitive instinct. Once we have a number to evaluate, we will find ways to improve it, and once we have a good assessment of one trading skill, we will find a way to have a good rating on another skill. Over time, our increasingly improved series of reviews will reflect on returns. And consistently beating the market becomes possible.

Self-assessment helps you to cope with yourself: what you achieved and what you failed. And sharing that review with others helps you find ways to improve it.

Many traders evaluate their ability to trade every day, and it is not surprising that they can make a profit month after month, year after year. Great traders look for ways to improve even when they're doing well.
