Self-esteem is another virtue found in people with higher levels of emotional intelligence. Emotional intelligence allows a person to trust their abilities. A forex trader who lacks confidence would hesitate to place a buy or sell order even if there is an ideal trading pattern. After placing the order, the trader will not wait patiently for price movement to begin as desired. Ultimately, the trader will leave early and miss an opportunity to generate good profits. On the other hand, the experienced professional will stay on profits and reduce losses quickly. The maturity and confidence demonstrated by the professional trader is the result of the influence of emotional intelligence.
