Hello! I'm trying to trade for about a year and I have a question.
What do you do if you hit a losing streak? How to identify when it occurs? And how to find time to return?

There are certain rules that you can create for yourself:

Stop trading for 5 trading days if you had 2 consecutive losing days.
Stop trading for the day if you have had 3 consecutive losers.
Or stop trading for the day if you lost 3% of your account equity (this is called a daily loss limit).

Rules like this can help you survive drawdowns.

Stop trading for few days. Get disciplined. Trade micro lots. It's not about the trade. Trades are never in ones control. It's about discipline and prudent money management.

STOP TRADING! go spend some money on someone or something you care about. trading is Very addictive. Something most will not admit but it's no different then people who are addicted to gambling , casinos and sports betting.

 Don't see a losing streak as failure, a losing streak means you have good money management and know when to exit a trade and move on. Your should find someone you trust who will let you watch them trade for a few months. that's the best way to learn. another important thing is you need to have a cut off amount.

That in the event your account drops below a certain amount you will promise yourself to stop trading and withdraw your money from your trading account and shut it down. most people in the forex market will not give you this advise but we are. you should have a rule. (Tell yourself) if i lose half my trading account. you must admit. you are not ready for this yet. go back to demo. read some Investment books, trade stocks. 'penny stocks & pink sheets if your money is low' go take a short trip somewhere. but just know when to stop trading. that is a form of self disciplined most people do not have and they keep going until every since Dollar is Gone.
