Yes, it is very tough to be disciplined in the live market. A trader may know what he needs to do, what he should do or should not do. However, when it comes to implementing things in the live market, we seem to get carried away. This is the main reason that 90% traders fail in the market.

You can always try to risk more money to reduce emotions. Risk less, use SL, only deposit a small amount at first, etc. so that you aren't able to lose as much money. That tactic helped my anxiety when I first started.

Forex markets are an exciting opportunity for traders, but in such a highly competitive market, traders tend to be emotionally ups and downs.

You cannot excape emotions while trading, unfortunately, but you can control them. Surely, you need to learn how to do that, but otherwise, you are highly likely to lose everything that you've got on your trading account.

Emotions are inevitable part of trading however sometimes they probably are very harmful for a trader. No doubts, that it's impossible to get rid of any emotions, because they literally ingulf you, especially when you have hard trading day. Nevertheless, traders should learn how to suppress emotions in a way it won't be harmful for your organism. All people know that suppressing the emotions definitely leads to serious mental health issues, however they really interfere your conscious when you analyze the graphic. In my opinion, it can be learnt how to do it but it requires enough time and experience.

Emotions are a geat enemy of success in trading. However, that is the thing that we cannot get rid of. The only way to survive on the market is to comb your emotions and control them. I believe that the best way to deminish the influence of psychology is to work out a precise and categorical trading strategy. If you build such a plan which will be objective and precise, you will just follow the formula of taking trading decisions and you will hardly experience greed or fear when you will deal with sheer numbers and calculations.

Emotion in trading can lead to more losing trades. A trader should focus on executing trades based on a strategy and should not get affected by the emotions of greed, fear, and hope. This can lead to a trader having good risk control, where one does not take unnecessary risks.

Emotions if not handled properly can ruin your trades and you can face huge losses. So, it's very important to have a proper control on your emotions like fear, greed and excitememt while trading.

I totally agree. The idea of shutting down emotions isn't what is needed. Just raising self awareness and ability to control emotions and departmentalise them. I enjoyed reading the Chimp Paradox to help with this.

Emotions play the biggest role in trading. I got used to think that if there would be no emotions in trading, then all traders would become successful. According to statistics, the biggest part of traders give up trading because of their emotions and this isn't surprising at all. Everything because it's difficult to control them while we're trading. No doubts, that if we will be able to handle our emotions during responsible moments, then we would have less losses and we would make less mistakes.
The reality is strict to us, and there are no easy ways to become successful. All paths require special approach I guess.

Emotions can influence trading decisions unless you develop a strategy in advance and stick to it no matter what you think at the moment.

Emotions and trading don’t play well. To be successful in forex trading, one needs to keep his/her emotions in check. Trading with greed to earn more profits or doing revenge trading to cover losses never brings a good outcome.

Emotion is human nature. We get emotional when we run on our instinct, imagination or prediction. If a trader sticks to his plan strictly and he knows exactly what he is doing, then he would not get emotional. Making a loss is a part of trading. A good trader learns and knows how to deal with losses as well.

Emotion included as human nature, each people they have own emotions because human is not a robot, they felt pain, hurt, etc another feeling as part in emotion, while trading forex will be involved between expectation and reality, when expectation gets out from reality could make human get emotion, but here important to control emotion in trading to prevent bad decision due to emotion.

Only when we learn to recognize and manage our mental responses, emotions can help us become winners in the forex industry.

This teaches you so much about yourself that emotions get intertwined with logic. Its the key to making it long term in this industry. Just build your psychology as much as your techincal skills

Thing is there is no way around dealing with the psychological aspect before you expose yourself to it. I tried as best I could on demo to treat it like real money but it's just not quire the same. I never had too many issues but can see how many will do.

A trader should never have emotions while placing trades, it will always ruin one's trading journey.

As a trader, emotion is your worst enemy. As you are a trader, you need to avoid emotional trading because when you are caught up in emotion, you can not do well in your forex trading. Just keep in mind that emotional trading is not good.
