On the forum I recently came across some interesting tips why traders fail. There were only 4 of them, I don't remember exactly what was there, but the fourth advice was that most traders become overconfident. Everything should be reasonable and confidence should be as well. This vice threatens you with as due to excessive self-confidence and your trading talent you can risk putting too high leverage and blown almost all your money. If not all your money at all... So good traders need to pay attention to when their self-confidence hurts them.

This is very true, but then again, isnt overconfident part of emotions which you need to take in control of?

Well said. confidence is good but over confidence is dangerous and many of us become over confident initially when we get 3-4 consistent success.

Over confidence in trading will only take you down and down.

I agree, just had 32 consecutive wins and then I lost 2 in a row, got over confident maybe, well the second loss was a revenge trade.
But still learning, blew a 100k demo, then a 200 EUR live so here I am humble trying to figure how to rid emotions with this demo, + some risk management as that would help with my under confidence in open trades, exit 2 soon.
Basically I am over confident entering and under confident once a trade is running in the green.
Hope i learn as really want to do a live account again.

It can happen and I am glad it only happened in demo. All the best with your trading journey

True. Overconfidence is a huge reason for degrading trading performance. We must know how to control it.

I have problem with overconfidence.
I put too much confidence in my systems so when they trade I do not interfere and sometimes I regret that.
But still all systems are backtested and analyzed for 5 years period and some losses are simple part of trading.
It is hard t find proper level of interference, so when you let your EA do everything and when you step in and for example close trades at BE.

As long as good risk management is used then over confidence can be controlled. I find revenge trading is more damaging than over confidence
