We are Risk managers not ( Traders) once you understand this you will see the markets in a different way altogether.
It took me years of losing to grasp this mind-set but once I did it opened a whole new ball-game that I can control.
What ever you do in this World, You gain Experience from how long you have been doing that Successfully, Same thing applies to Trading, no matter what just make sure you are earning profits steadily, month in, month out and continue this process over 1 year and you are experienced already, do it over 5 years, you are Proffesional, I'm happy for myself with this.
Experience comes from your failures/mistakes. You have to learn from your bad experiences to become better and successful. Once you get to know where you are lacking behind then you can fix those flaws and move ahead. Therefore, in trading you need to practice and plan more to gain experience. Practice is the only key to gain experience.
I'd say the hardest part about gaining experience is admitting your mistakes and getting over them. Patience is another big one. So is self-confidence. Think of how many people are dependent on forex signals instead of their own craft, or how many rush to charts on Sunday evening. The results of experience are reflected in your track record. Maybe you haven't blown your account in 2 days, maybe you're losing money at a slower rate, maybe you're breakeven after a month now.
