BarroMetrics Views: ACT Final
As the final post in the series, I had planned to give an example of how ACT had changed my trading. Well, Friday’s trading provided such an opportunity, but not quite in the way I had in mind!
Friday saw a reversion to trading governed by the 3-Fs with the result that I lost […]

BarroMetrics Views: ACT IV
Two related questions
I) whilst in a trade how do you distinguish between new information and a FFF type emotion? Is it possible that the uncertainly and discomfort simply forces an FFF to be rationalised as new information?
II)The values and committed actions are also integral - could you explain further his you […]
BarroMetrics Views: ACT III
I received an email stating that the coverage I gave ACT was superficial.
I agree. The blogs are intended as an introduction, In ACT, I provided a link for an in-depth introduction. And, you can always ‘Google’ Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (also Acceptance & Commitment Training) for books and courses on the subject.
Today, I want to […]
BarroMetrics Views: ACT II
HK is on an August Moon Hols. Wishing all my HK readers a fab hols!
Figures 1 and 2 are different versions of the ACT Hexagon. Figure 1 provides a detailed description; Figure 2 shows the two processes.

BarroMetrics Views: All Well Now! BrightWin
At last I can say I have fully recovered from the spill I had (what felt like) an eternity ago. All of last week, I sat before my computer and nary a twinge in sight. Hopefully that’s the last long-term injury I’ll have for a while. Still when you are […]
BarroMetrics Views: New Series II

That being the case, I am seeking your input in two ways:
what would you like to see covered (see below)? […]
BarrosMetrics Views: Being Fully Present II
At the airport lounge with an hour to kill - enough time to write a short follow-up to yesterday’s blog.
Subscribers to my free video newsletter know I am keen to sell the NZDUSD. I believe it is offering a low-risk, high probability opportunity not often seen.
Figure 1 shows my preferred […]
BarrosMetrics Views: Being Fully Present
Daniel asked: can you explain what is mean “Being fully present”? I heard about that, so when you are in a trade, you need to live in the “NOW”,to let back the past, to forget about losing and winning trades, and to not think about the future, to not let your expectations […]

I’ll continue with the ‘Inflection Point’ series tomorrow.

On my last trip I was flicking through the Strait Times and came across an ad for ‘Master Class Series: Achieve a Breakthrough in Sales Performance’. I enrolled for it - not expecting too […]
