Trading at the QVM can be very stressful particularly when a prolonged business drought causes financial hardship. Treatment of stress, anxiety and depression is a serious matter, well beyond this trader’s website, but traders can play a part.
Signs of anxiety/depression include unusual tenseness, withdrawal or anger. If you know of a trader who is suddenly acting in a different way, perhaps not communicating as much or even avoiding social contact, they may have a problem. We can all play a role in helping our fellow trader by looking for signs of distress and asking “Are you OK?”
