There is a big difference between a retail trader and a hedge fund trader. This difference is called market depht. A small retail trader can open a 1 lot trade and ihe will not be noticed by market, because 1 lot is nothing. But a hedge fund can't open 10.000 lots in just one trade. This trade will cause a huge move in market, and his order will be filled in different levels. The other difference is the acceptable volatility. For a retail trader, 25% drawdown is acceptable. For a hedge fund, less than 10%.

Different things... A retail can trade for 10% monthly, an hedge fund for 3%.


Trade safely... Remember, a high Drawdown means a high risk!

Got your point; but there have so many traders who started their trading career as a retail trader but now they are the institutional payers!

I don't know of ANY retail trader who went into institutional trading. Never heard or seen of anyone do that. Bank traders come straight out of college and then start trading. Retail traders are usually older and already have a day job

It’s not common case mate! But I believe it’s possible! The sky has no limit.

Greed and emotions almost same. Generally beginners attacked by this common human nature. We can control this by proper trading practice as well great discipline.

I think that it helps to start with a very small Lot size and then increase the amount very slowly (I am talking about the period of a year at least going from 0.01 to 0.1). I think that this helps control emotions and get used to trading with real money

Emotions are everything in trading, emotions and mind set.
