I have blown 12, two of them were very big and even as a profitable trader now I havent been able to recover.

What's your experience? Any contribution you can give me on the psychological side of this?

Thank you for sharing.

Well to be honest a solid trading plan with a set of rules that i strictly follow helped me with the psychological side of forex so i think you should get some....i would recommend you listen to an audio book on YouTube (Trading in the zone) because that was my turning point in forex after actually listening to the book

Wow! Good to see that you're still trading despite that. Would you say that you've learned from those experiences? Did it take an emotional toll on you?

I blew one account. It was more then 4 years ago. I decided to open real one and had about $3000. And because of my huge mistake I lost almost all my capital. After that I became very cautious.

I agree, I read the book, Mark Douglas was a genius and it helped me a lot back at that moment.

It did take an emotional toll at the time, it was hard, specially on the two big accounts. It did taught me a lot about who I was and why I traded the way I did.

Very expensive lesson, but on the long run worth it.

Well it can happen to anyone.

Blowing up accounts taught me a lot about myself and trading in overall.

Hope you are trading better these days! Rock on!

Thank you. For now I am really feeling more better than any time. The loss helped me to be more attentive. And careful. Now I got back what I once lost. And very happy about it.

One I blew was because I was trading with BTC as the base currency and took a 200% bonus from Coinexx, so I could effectively trade 3 times the volume. 2 things happened, BTC value dropped by about 30% with open trades, and when the actual equity in the account was gone, it closed all the trades and destroyed the account as the 'bonus' was not considered part of the equity. Lessons were to trade lower volumes with crypto as the base currency due to the underlying volatility, and never take a bonus - much better to trade with higher leverage which uses less equity than use a bonus to trade higher volumes.

3 nearly blown but all while using EAs when I first got into trading. As of yet no accounts from manual trading.
If you can't spot the liquidity then you are the liquidity.

That was quite an experience I'm sure. I agree, better to avoid 'extra bonus' and just trade with higher leverage always seems to be the better choice!

EAs are always tough! Congratulations on not blowing accounts on manual trades! Do you make a good return on risk? Just wondering.

Ya! I have almost blown my trading account thrice in a row before I actually started making real profits.

Sometimes learning the hard way is the best way!
Kudos to you for overcoming that!

Wow. This is great. What is your goal? Is it about 10 000 of profit during this period?
