I guess with the death of Rene Rivkin very much in the media, it poses the question of traders mental health. I do beleive that trading on the stock market increases health issues in those who are risk of or who have developed metal health issues.
Even in the sain of us I am sure that we can all vouch for those sleepless nights worry about a stock, the what if?, should I have done this? or should have, would have but didn't scenario. The skipping of the heart when you have just traded, and waiting for the share price to go up. The sweat pouring of you and the stress in the head while heavy trading.
Ok... so here is a little of myself that I will reveal....I suffer with depression and anxiety attacks. Both of these condidtions are made worse with the impact of trading on the stock market. People tell me time and time again that a person of my nature should never trade on the market, due to the risks.
It does pose greater questioning, any comments?
