It is important that the trader's expectations are realistic, which means that he must have an appropriate framework. In the long run, every trader should try to be consistently profitable, but at the same time should not strive to maintain consistency in the short term. This is impossible because of the changing market environment. It is okay to have a bad day or bad week or keep a low profile for a period until the market environment improves.

Successful traders know when the market does not provide them with good opportunities all the time, so they do not expect their results to be consistent. Novice traders should not have this goal that only leads to frustration. As well as a good poker player, our goal is to survive in difficult times and make the most of it when you are offered great opportunities.



This is a copy and paste of the internet. The forex psychology that many recommend here speaks of their own experiences my friend. Not advice developed and published by ... anyone know?

Forex Psychology: that your brokers are regulated is the best guarantee. Choose a broker who is under regulatory rules.


Practically all brokers claim to be regulated, which does not stop them taking off with millions of Dollars in client funds. Like the Reza F**ing Mokhtarian, Iranian-Canadian CEO of NZ-regulated Capital Trust Markets did in 2015... Not to mention the infamous case of tje NZ-regulated 3TGFx just 6 months ago. The list of 'regulated' THIEF BROKERS is very long on ForexPeaceArmy...

But it can happen even in the USA; just read up on Google about Bernie Madoff's (retired NASDAQ CEO) HUGE Ponzi scheme...

In summary: Your best bet is a broker with FCA regulation (and with automatic FSCS insurance), should the worse happen...



In total agreement with you.

This is true, the real trader or the good trader knows exactly when to make his move because he constantly analyzes the market.

It may sound a little silly, but the best psychology on the planet is to maintain humility, even if we are doing well or not so well.

Traders make trading more difficult than necessary. Why? Because that's the way trading is marketed. No money to be made off simple!

IT'S NOT WHAT YOU TRADE, IT'S HOW YOU TRADE IT!
