Die Online-Plattform thebalance.com gibt Tradern am Finanzmarkt folgende Handlungsempfehlung, welche 1 zu 1 auf den Sportwettenbereich übertragen werden kann:
„Have a plan and stick with it. Realize that not doing anything is often good. When you are in a trade, sometimes it is best to just sit there and avoid the compulsion to close it out. Act only when your plan tells you to act. The market gives you almost infinite opportunities to mess up. Where always looking busy may be helpful (sometimes) in the real world (but also stressful), in trading it isn’t recommended.
Most traders lose money, and most people feel that compulsion to do something. If you want to succeed, don’t be like most people. Work on your discipline. Day trade in a demo account, and work on sitting through those very uncomfortable moments when you want to make a trade or adjustment that doesn’t align with your plan.
Developing the discipline to control the action bias won’t come over night. It could take months or even years before you get a really good handle on it.
Learn to sit quietly and just watch when it isn’t time to act. This will teach you much more than trying to impose your will on the market…and will be much less costly.“
