I think greed makes you act irrationally and it’s all a matter of taming your ego. Avoid over trading or revenge trading.

for sure it's must be controlled, otherwise you can see it's totally unreliable thing for many of those patterns here anyway. Do you see me coming for that? I am not able too.... You can simply blow all your money and even borrowed ones...

a self confident trader will not be greedy, a professional will not be greedy. so improve the trading skills and forget about greed.

Traders should keep their greed under control while trading foreign currency. Their focus should not be on making more money but on making their trading more profitable. Being greedy, a person sometimes makes bigger and bigger investments which leads to bigger losses. Therefore, the trader must control his greed and find ways to improve his trading. Big profits does not mean successful trading, but having continuity in your profits is a sign of successful trading.

That's a great advice. Bringing consistency in one's trading returns is what matters the most. But traders somewhere focus on how big their returns are, which is not good if seen from long perspective.

Greed is a strong enemy to gain profit. forex is a very profitable business. we can earn huge money from here. most of the new traders cannot control their greediness and trade more and more for a huge profits. always we should protect our capital and trade for money very carefully without any greed.

It's important in any field, and you have to learn how to work with it, because it can cause you to banal lose control of the situation. And you just can't let that happen because it's totally unprofessional!

Greed control should be under Risk Management, Have time of opening and time of closing, Don't Overtrade as it ruins a lot of Traders, I take loss when necessarily, it takes a good mental strength to accept you are wrong in trades and exit that trades with minimum loss and not let greed of not wanting to loss overcomes you, This have been one good parts of my Strategy to making good daily decisions.

Nobody should be greedy as you never know where life can take us. Just focus and be determined to have more experience in trading to be in a profitable situation.

Hello! Unfortunately, there is no on/off switch for such a feature like 'greed'. I remember 13 years ago, when I discovered Forex market, greed was living in my heart. And my trades were awufull. What helped me - is to treat Forex not like a money machine, but more like a side-hustle. Also having a full time job helps a lot, so I had money and I was not thinking about getting more. Not full time, not so serious, less worries. Also trading on a Forex looks like having a cat (not my words, but completely agree with them). If you are chasing a cat, that cat will run away, but if you stop chasing and you have what cat loves - cat will run towards you eventually.

Same thing with money. If you are chasing them with all you heart and soul and that's everything you can ever think of - you'll fail.
If you will have what money likes - patience, long term vision and love for what you do - money will come. Trust me.
Have a good one.

greed is common to all people, you need to learn to disable this feeling in yourself if you want to earn money.

I really like what you said.
Saying that we have to control our greedness is easier than done. Thank you for sharing the story.

I think laziness is the main enemy. People do not want to work hard and learn. They think Forex is easy. It is not
