UweMoench posted: The fear of losing opportunity is very dangerous. All newbies have this fear. When markets moves a lot in a certain direction, they become restless by thinking they are losing an opportunity of making money. As a result they try to open trade even if their system shows no signal, and they open trade and lose the money.
Emotions are there in forex trading. However, there's a difference between responding to the feelings and reacting to the feelings. Our choice ought to affect our emotions, fear, anger and greed. It is dangerous in case a trader don't understand what he's doing.
In my opinion, people always try to stay away such a phenomenon as fear of losing opportunities. Of course it's quite difficult to distract from such thoughts but there is chance to learn how to get rid of such thoughts I bet. Forstly, people should consider such opportunities as something that shouldn't happen. It means that something saved you from taking that action, which means that things could have gone much worse. If people, especially, traders, would understand that everything that doesn't work is for the best, they would start to relate to their life with much more respect and would start to appreciate every action.
