Over trading is one of the reasons why people make their account zero. If any trade goes against they open new trade thinking that it will help then to recover the loss quickly. By these way they do over trading. It is a really bad practice.
Indeed it is, especially when one is on a winning or losing streak. When one is on a winning streak, one overtrades because of overconfidence. When one is on a losing, one overtrades because of the desire to win.
first_time posted: Overtrading happens when you are getting over confident or not being satisfied with win/losses and yes, everyone should avoid the over trading as nothing good comes out of that.
I think demo trading is the best method to find out about your limits while you trade.
Over trading can have multiple definitions; for a scalper who has done tens of hundreds of trades per day ( depending on the experience). I think on the trading aspect there is no such thing as over-trading. It is upon us how much risk we can take and how long we can keep taking the right decisions.
Be aware of over trading, the eagerness of trading beyond the limit can cause a huge loss. Sometimes, traders do over trade to cover previous losses, it confuses the trader with frustration and leads to loss of their whole capital.
