There are many strategies which we can use while trading, but we need to know that all strategies will not work in each and every trade.

I don’t switch on my trading terminal directly without 15 minutes meditation! Honestly, this process helps me for being a successful Forex trader! I make prepare my neurons before opening my chart by meditation! In addition, obviously I have a specific daily trading target that I try to fulfill, it not then I want for next session! Thus I handle my live trading!
To change your trading result, just change your thinking.

traders think emotionally that he will be millionaire from forex by investing low balance account and high risk orders

most traders open trades with no reason or good signals and no calculation of how much they will lose

In this business calculation is necessary. You must draw your goal of gain but also take what can be the margin of loss to not have a bad ending.
That's trading are wisdom.

It seems that the theory of 'too much' is not favorable.

Interesting approach and technique with meditation. I am wondering if it needs to be that long or even few minutes are enough for meditating 😄
Need for speed!

MMM, I doubt that meditation will serve much in the Affairs of business. I.e., is in the personality of the dealer. If it is a volatile person, who does not trace its earnings targets and does not work professionally, the meditation will not help you.

With algorithmic robot trading there is no concern of trading psychology... Also, less stress, more sleep and even more free time.

Added bonus: Making profits during the Asian session while you are sleeping. 😄

Yes, correct...

I meant it for successful manual strategies which are hard to implement - on larger investments - due to psychological factors.

I was very good at demo trading, mediocre with smaller funds and disastreous with larger investments. Moving to fully automated trading has solved all my problems. I have never looked back.

I guess this is the case when there is no flash crash of the markets during that session. Maybe you sleep better in general but isn't it a stress with the need to update the robots settings regularly, and when they go wrong? I'm not expert on auto trading so I was just wondering about these aspects as well.
