Its always wise to start small I would say. No point risking too much money and losing it altogether which will obviously affect a trader's motivation too. Hence better start small and gradually increase the amount.

Yes, trading psychology is very important in trading. Traders who are well aware of this trading psychology would have a strong control over their emotions and biases. This is different for every trader and they can overcome this bias by acknowledging their emotions. In my experience, I’ve seen the impact a peaceful mindset has over the trades. Can’t ignore that factor.
Not only the trading psychology but also the use of different indicators and strategies is necessary to be a successful trader. I’ve been trying my hands on some indicators with the price action strategy and learning to identify some entry/exit levels with position trading. I won’t say it is easy and the toll it takes on my mind at times but I try to stay calm in order to achieve some level of success.
It is very important to be mentally prepared when it come to trading, that you have to accept the losses that you are making without getting 'revenge trading' and profit that you are making without getting 'overconfident'.
