Over trading is one of the reasons why people make their account zero. If any trade goes against they open new trade thinking that it will help then to recover the loss quickly. By these way they do over trading. It is a really bad practice.
Indeed it is, especially when one is on a winning or losing streak. When one is on a winning streak, one overtrades because of overconfidence. When one is on a losing, one overtrades because of the desire to win.

I think demo trading is the best method to find out about your limits while you trade.
Over trading can have multiple definitions; for a scalper who has done tens of hundreds of trades per day ( depending on the experience). I think on the trading aspect there is no such thing as over-trading. It is upon us how much risk we can take and how long we can keep taking the right decisions.

I think algo trading is the best way to reduce the fatigue for a trader, constantly monitoring your screen can be stressful. I recently switched from manual to automated trading on the same platforms I was using earlier: MT4 on cmc markets and fxview, but I’m seeing a significant reduction in stress and increase in profits.
