A trader should always be patient. The more impulsive you are in trading, the more you will lose. I have seen many traders who want 100% profit in trading. This attitude is the main reason for the loss. And when they lose. Then say trading is not a good thing. You have to follow the plan in trading. If there is any deficit in the plan then there will be a loss. And you have to be disciplined. And you have to follow money management all the time. You should never trade with an impulsive attitude.
Most of the time you have to accept the loss in trading when trading with an impulsive attitude. Trading is a game of goals and if you want to win in this game of goals, you must show patience. It is wise to accept this loss in trading and move on to trading. If you start over-trading to cover losses, your account may become empty. Therefore, you need to think positive all the time.
You need to tell yourself that no matter what, you are going to stick to your trading strategy as it has been tested. Entry and exit points must be predetermined using indicators, and then you ought to stick to them. Whenever you feel too overwhelmed, take a stroll outside.
First of all a trader should be patient always, impulsive trading will lead to loss always. Set a proper goal, plan according to it. Choose a fix time, set a fix entry and exit time according to your strategy. It will reduce your impulsiveness and screen time also.
To these three points I would add a fourth saying 'stick to your plan no matter what'. You need to trust your system and trade according to it even if some kind of impulse hits you. If you trade impulses, you lose control over your decisions. Even the best system is not worth much if you can't stick to it.
