I totally agree with the idea that the main reason for failures is misconception of the newbies about what trading really is. Successful trading presupposes much learning and practise. Not all of the people are ready to spend so much time on analysing the charts and news, so you will more likely to be a success on the market if you are really interested in trading. However, if you think that trading forex is easy and it doesn't require any efforts, you'd better stay away from this activity as you will definetely lose lots of money with such an approach.
Well, no doubts that most of traders don't get success and the reasons of such situations are that they dedicate less time to learning and practicing. It sounds quite corny, however it really depends on these things. Moreover, I would note emotions and unproper goals. Of course, it's quite unpleasant to lose money, especially when you lose all your money, however it makes traders stronger as I think. Those traders who always try, they always reach success. They made mistakes but they understand that they wouldn't let these mistakes to interrupt their future trades. So, it works approximately like that.
Maybe yes maybe no, I think successful traders only for them that always hard work and smart work, they want to spend time learning and have a good mindset, because forex trading is about how to manage money to make money, choosing trading pair also important to get good pair with a strong trending market, the easier trading is when the market in strong trending, but waiting this moment is not always to come.
Most traders are unsuccessful. In fact, statistics suggests that 95% traders fail in this business. One of the reasons for that is traders invest their money in live market way too early than they should. Since it is not an easy business, they lose their money as well as confidence. Let us not do it. We must invest our hard work, time and dedication before investing real money in this market. It is not easy but it is certainly doable if it is dealt accordingly.
