It is important to try and keep them under check when about to enter the Forex market. The most important point is that speculators should have a trading strategy that works and they should follow it to the letter. There should never be an abandoning of risk management stimulated by the variety of feelings that attack a person during the actual trading event.
Having placed a rather negative picture of emotions, the fact is that we are all emotional beings and as a result, we need to ask, what state should our emotions be in when trading? – The answer is that there should be a general feeling of well-being.
The person who generally feels well lacks any particular underlying bias to react irrationally during a trade. It is not good for a depressed person to trade because they will speculate at inappropriate moments and will get more depressed. If a person is loaded with debts and is feeling stressed, he will rush into trades and lose more. A person who has the general feeling of well-being will only suffer from emotions that are common to all people like regret, impatience, fear, excitement etc. In summary, develope a stoneheart while trading, over my years of trading, i devolope stoneheart each time im trading and take the market as i see it, this have help me consistently and i keep up piling profits upon profits far greater than losing, hence making me very successful profits compiler. I hope the above notes helps you to become a better trader.
I can say from my experience that I have lost a lot by trading emotionally. A lot of times I have closed with a loss in profitable trade which was very sad for me. That is why one should never trade emotionally.
One thing I have followed is that those who are big investors usually work less on their emotions and that is why their business is improving so much. Trading is no exception. It is possible to make money from trading by giving up emotions.
