To be or not to be a psychological currency trader?
Currency trading, just like other trading fields, involves the
risk of loss. This risk increases because of the trader's
psychological weaknesses. Human features make the difference
between the successful and always loosing investor. Here's how
to avoid making psychological mistakes while Currency trading.
There have been written many books about the psychological
aspect of the trading business and Currency trading is no
exception, even if the risk is diminished here. History, other
people's experience and impressive statistics have proven that
more people loose, while trading, than win. Economic techniques,
forecasting methods and communication technology have advanced
over time, yet we still see there are no changes in the
statistics: more losers than winners. This is due to the fact
that human nature is the same and it is the one that we should
pay more attention to.
The probability of becoming one of the many persons who act
according to their feelings and loose the invested money soon
after is very high if you do not pay attention to written facts:
- Human emotions have to be controlled! - Don't act upon fear or
hope! Fear of loss leads to it and so does hoping without basing
your feelings on real facts. (You could be an expert in Currency
trading and it wouldn't matter if you don't use this rule.) -
Exploit other people's human emotions by learning from them.
(people who are constant in their mistakes can not gain success
and earn money) - Be disciplined, make plans, follow strategies,
apply mathematical and money management principles! - Run only
profitable trades and try to
cut losses as fast as possible! -
Don't use rumors and advice unless you are certain of their
authenticity and quality!
To be successful you have to think independently of the majority
and stick out from the crowd. Just like in any trading field,
these principles have to be followed in Currency trading also.
Gaining money should be easy on the Forex Market, but not that
easy because some have to win and some have to loose. Currency
trading is much safer than other trading methods, but if you
want to have an edge over other competitors than try to be wise
and research first, study other people's behavior and choose
from them only the best. "When everybody thinks alike, everybody
is likely to be wrong". (Gann)
Don't forget to use Currency trading tips and information
because being a great psychologist isn't enough. You also have
to know how and when to trade currencies, the latest news, the
best moments to sell or buy currencies, get familiar with the
appropriate terminology, banking procedures and the dos and
don'ts of this type of trading. Be prepared for anything! You
have to learn that investment, and therefore Currency trading
too, implies risk and you may or you may not win.
So the answer to the question in the title would be "Yes, to
know Currency trading and be a fine psychologist beats only
knowing Currency trading!"
