that is right. you need to be a risk taker to some extent to be successful in FX. And need to be comfortable with those risks. [b]That is how you can control emotions. I think that people are either born this way or they are not. [/b]If you get too emotions when trading then you should quit as you will never be a top trader
This statement is completely untrue based on my experience.
It is true that in any type of trading there is no certainty and there will always be risk. But to say that you can 'control' emotion is really misleading. Emotion cannot be controlled but it can be re framed. Perhaps this is what you mean and I'm pointing out a difference in semantics. Dealing with the emotion that is present is key to success in most endeavors with trading being no exception.
The part that I REALLY disagree with is that you are 'either born this way or not'. I am by nature extremely conservative and I am not at all naturally comfortable with risk. This is something that I have explored within myself and worked on. I can positively say that I am 100% comfortable with the trading risks that I take today; it's no issue. There are times when I feel a rush of negative emotions and my fight or flight instinct kicks in. But I have developed the tools to deal with this, and I have developed the habit of applying them. It's not perfect but it works.
Anyone who wants to change a personality trait can absolutely change it. It takes work and practice but it can be done. I pointed out earlier in this thread that meditation is key to dealing with emotions. The type of meditation I was referring to is calm abiding meditation. The type of fear experienced during trading generally comes from focusing on the outcome and not the process, it comes from not staying in the present and instead letting the mind go to the past (usually to recall negative events) and then to the future (to worry about losing money). Calm abiding meditation trains the mind to stay in the present. It's a skill that can be built, albeit very slowly. This combined with a tested and verifiable statistical trading edge will get a person knocking at the door of consistent profitability.
It's still my contention that most traders who are experiencing fear have a good reason to feel this way. Most traders have not developed the skill to trade without constant loss and they do not have a quantifiable and verifiable trading edge. Some have a trading plan but it's a losing plan. Anyone new to trading will need to develop both the trading skills and mental skills and this will take years. Not days, weeks or months but years. If you're not willing to put years into this then you're likely going to be handing your money over to other people. Trade ES futures and you might be handing it over to me :)
