Ok so I'm looking for some help in creating my trading plan, what should I be thinking about when putting it together? what kind of things do I need to have in it? do I even need one at all?
Any help anyone can give would be very much appreciated as I'm feeling a little overwhelmed.
It seems you are still very new to the trading world. Maybe you should start with educating yourself first, especially if you are feeling overwhelmed. That feeling is quite common because there is a LOT to know. You will get the hang of it eventually.
What is your trading experience like? Are you trading right now, on a demo account maybe?
im not currently trading no, not manually anyway. i read a lot but when i try to put it into practice i doubt myself so much and just get frustrated.
Regarding the feelings you are having, I think you just need to stick with it and try to trust yourself a little more. Yes, you will face losses most likely and it will bring you down at first.
Are you using an EA? That is a great way to trade for people who can't control their emotions. But when you one day want to switch over to manual trading, you need to get your emotions on check.
You said you want to get into creating a trading plan, a strategy for yourself. So do that, research and put it together and then go on with trading.
