I had a similar problem to revenge trading because I did not use a stop loss. I held a trade open but when it turned red I did not close it I kept it open hoping that it would go green. It never did and wiped out my account. I had take a month off after that to reset. i use stop loss now

Well you broke all the rules of trading so results corresponds to that.
Try to do it opposite next time, close trade when it is red but keep it open once it is green
As result you should see some profit

Revenge trading is the foremost symptom of emotions which is mainly considered the reason for losing in Forex. We have to control this common human nature by proper trading discipline. But cannot remove completely at all.

Suppose; you got a SL by a sell trade then open a buy trade immediately without market study!

Revenge trading occurs mainly by the fear of being wrong. It happens when a trader decides to trade even more aggressively in his/her next trades because of losses he has been incurring.

Anger; & lack of trading knowledge! Basically it’s a very common problem by the new traders!

Revenge trading is when your emotions start guiding your trading such as when you've experienced a number of losses and you're angry. Then you decide you're going to suddenly win it all back with yet another trade that you shouldn't be opening, and say for example you make this new trade an absurd size so you can instantly win back all your losses. The reality is that you are probably going to blow the account out because you aren't trading using a realistic strategy.

Emotional control, risk management, and automation when possible will help discourage revenge trading.

If it looks too good to be true, it's probably a scam! Let the buyer beware.

Automation is a great way to stop revenge trading. It takes the man out of the problem. No emotions for computer code.
