Loss aversion: People tend to feel the pain of losses more than the pleasure of gains, which can lead to holding on to losing positions for too long.

Anchoring bias: People tend to anchor to a reference point, such as the price at which they bought a stock, and base their decisions on that point, rather than current market conditions.

Confirmation bias: People tend to look for information that confirms their existing beliefs, and ignore information that contradicts them.

Overconfidence: Many traders overestimate their abilities, which can lead to taking on too much risk and making poor trading decisions.

Herding behavior: People tend to follow the crowd and make the same trades as others, rather than making independent decisions.

Emotion-based trading: People tend to make emotional decisions, instead of logical ones, which can lead to impulsive buying and selling.

Fear of missing out (FOMO): The fear of missing out on potential gains can lead to impulsive buying, especially during market booms.

Recency bias: People tend to overweight recent events and assume they will continue in the future, which can lead to poor predictions about market movements.

Self-attribution bias: People tend to attribute their successes to their own skill and effort, but attribute their failures to external factors.

Endowment effect: People tend to value things more highly simply because they own them, which can make it difficult to sell losing positions.

For me controlling my emotions from losses is definitely something to keep working on. Bad day with big losses = try again another day, do not aggressively try to recover your losses

It's also important to remember that losses are a normal part of trading and that it's important to keep a long-term perspective.

Psychology trading has high role during trading, weak psychology trading will make traders easily to break discipline and often making mistake, strong psychology will bring trader more discipline with all trading rules both trading system and money management. Good trading system need supported by good money management, and good money management need supported by good psychology.

Emotions can have a significant impact on trading decisions, leading to impulsive behaviour and poor performance. Here are some tips to help manage emotions in trading:

1. Develop a trading plan: Having a well-defined plan can help you stay focused and avoid impulsive decisions.
2. Practice risk management: Limit your potential losses by setting stop-loss orders and sticking to them.
3. Stay disciplined: Stick to your plan and avoid deviating from it due to emotions.

The psychology of trading refers to the study of the emotional, cognitive, and behavioral aspects of traders and how these factors impact their trading decisions and performance. Some of the key elements of the psychology of trading include:

    Emotions: Fear, greed, and hope are some of the most common emotions that can influence a trader's decisions. Emotional control is crucial in trading to prevent impulsive decisions and maintain discipline in the face of market volatility.

    Cognitive biases: Traders can be prone to cognitive biases such as overconfidence, anchoring, and confirmation bias, among others. These biases can lead to suboptimal decision-making and impact performance.

    Behavioral finance: Traders are influenced by a range of psychological and behavioral factors, including their prior experiences, social norms, and cultural backgrounds. Understanding these factors can help traders to better understand their own behavior and make more informed decisions.

    Risk tolerance: Traders have different risk tolerance levels and it is important for traders to understand their own risk tolerance and make decisions accordingly.

    Trading plan: Developing a clear and well-thought-out trading plan, including strategies for managing emotions, can help traders to stay disciplined and focused.

Understanding the psychology of trading can help traders to identify and manage their own emotional, cognitive, and behavioral tendencies and make better-informed trading decisions.

Agree with your words. As for me, the hardest thing is to relax and accept the situation as it is. Draw conclusions and keep working.
Unfortunately, by focusing on losses, you only make things worse for yourself.
