Overconfidence can still have our mistake in terms of loosening our trading or say that we might ignore or miss something that is significant. Still, too much in Forex will be bad and will not benefit a trader and these includes in both having too much confidence and lack of confidence.
There is a difference between confidence born of experience and awareness of one's own abilities and overconfidence because one is too arrogant to admit to themselves they need to be more careful, I think. Some people do suffer from the latter.
Overconfidence depends also on the way the trader thinks and acts in life. If you are that type of person - you do not consider yourself as Overconfident, but just as a confident person. So the people who think that they are confident need to think twice 😄
Overconfidence can kill a trading account. It leads to over trading and under analysing. To avoid over trading, you could record how many trades per day / week you normally enter and if you find that you are taking more than the average it is likely that you are over trading

I agree. Self-awareness is generally a difficult thing to achieve, especially for people who are overconfident.
