October is Mental Health Awareness Month. It is particularly apt this year because 2020 has been absolutely terrible for mental health sufferers. The lock downs and circuit breakers meant that those suffering from mental health issues could not get their treatment initially. And then there was the isolation, lack of social support, and unfamiliar ways of working and living. But while there are anecdotes about people who lost their life savings or worse, there is little attention on those who invest in these unusual times. We often assume that these investors and traders are making the most out of the opportunity presented by the bad situation. Too often, we fail to consider that they may be suffering as well, as investing and trading can be hazardous to our mental health!
