This is very important and is becoming a common habit among new traders. I think overtrading happens when a trader’s trade fails at some point and in order to recover that money they go ahead with other trades without proper strategy or research work. This is majorly due to letting your emotions take the front seat.
@Akasuki What i think is that overtrading is caused when the traders have no control over their emotions . Especially when their trade goes wrong and they suffer a loss . A trader should know how to control their emotions in such situations and not let it take control over their decisions

Overtrading is very dangerous. It can loss all your money.
Overtrading without knowledge is like a disaster, maybe will quickly face margin call account, except traders understand what they do, like as correlation trading pair in any pair that has a positive correlation, called basket trading, they open 28 trading pairs for correlation, but this is also not good trading setup for a trader that only use small funds.
Yes, Overtrading is harmful to your trading account and your investment into your skills. If you do not give yourself enough time between trades, you will not have a chance to manage your risk properly. Over-trading is a very harmful trading behavior that will lead one into permanent financial destruction.
Overtrading is such a thing which traders always face. There is no difference whether you're a professional trader or a rookie, all types of traders can be susceptible to overtrading. The main matter here is personal relation of traders to trading. Some traders, who tend to earn as much as they can, are susceptible to overatrding more, because they unwisely distribute their resources such as power and time. I believe that it's quite a spread issue in trading community and there are some ways how to get rid of overtrading. Traders should comply with working and relaxing regimes in order to let their organisms relax from trading.
