The consequences are DIFFERENT in SIM vs REAL MONEY, so it is NOT the losing but the CONSEQUENCES OF LOSING that invoke fear.
I hope that makes it crystal clear.
I already made that point in my original post, using the beam analogy........that traders in SIM might do fine because there's no fear (and "no consequences" are implied), but when they go to Live they don't trade as well because of fear (and "consequences" are implied).
The consequences of bad in trading in SIM are that my real trading will be ten times worse....bad SIM results scare the sh*t out of me...
