    A few mistakes i have made;
    1) thinking i can anticipate the market,
    2) working with a strategy, but not waiting till all the conditions are met, being to fast in my decision (look at point 1),
    3) not sticking to my orginal amount of trading.

    Currently I'm trading 2 minutes bbands & adx. And i'm sticking to the currencies, cause i can only use those with strategy in mt4. Today i had a good day, i shared a few of my trades. In the beginning i made the mistake to increase my normal ammount, but quickly i returned to my orignal ammount.

    I believe that our psychological issues have greater impact on our trading success than we consider. Honestly, a good strategy is working if you are sticking to it completely, but sometimes I think that it takes hell of strong nerves to be able to never do stupid things and skip some of the strategies ideas. Everybody tends to risk more than he would when he a/needs the money very much or b/ feels lucky. It takes great self control to be profitable and to not let yourself be tempted.

    The stupidest thing that I tend to do is that when I lose I get very eager to get my money back as fast as possible so I start trading with bigger positions and with higher risk and eventually I get lucky, but more often I lose even more and the cycle is repeated till either I lose all my money, or start covering the loss. Iím trying to work on my emotional problem. It still hasnít resolved completely.

  10. Thanks edo thanked this post

    My mistake is the lack of impatience. I always tell myself to leave a certain position when it has reached its peak and I always rush and get out with less profit.
