Feel the Fear of Being a Losing Trader

Jul 11, 2008
Emotions are something that every trader fears, but they should also feel the fear of being a losing trader. Nothing is worse than consistent losses, particularly when the rewards of your labor are the sole earnings for the month. Many unsuccessful traders find themselves in a position wondering where their next meal will come from, and certainly it won't be from the thousands of dollars in losses that they have incurred.

Trading plan planner

A trading plan planner is the key to avoiding losses and creating profits. Trading plan planners help build a quality trading strategy around your own creative techniques. A trading plan planner should be the first stop for anyone serious about preserving trading capital. Knowing how to plan, what to plan for, and why you need a plan is often the fastest way to eliminate losses and produce consistent profits on a day to day basis.

Professional traders understand the importance of learning to plan. Losing traders all have one thing in common: either a losing plan or an inconsistent plan. A profitable plan used by an amateur who understands why consistency is important will prove profitable, while the same plan in the hands of a professional unconcerned about consistency will lose.

Master day trading

To master day trading involves not only understanding the financial markets, but also the many variables involved in professional trading and investing. While many think that knowing where to invest is the key to profitability, how and when are the two most important parts to creating profits. There are no true insider methods, but just trading discipline, which drives a trader to remain consistent and profitable.

Your own discipline

Trading discipline cuts straight to the bottom line. It is common that those who plan wisely and chart out each position do well, while the gambling trader fights just to keep his head above water. Uptrend, downtrend, or sideways trends abound, the disciplined trader can make money in any market - even those that aren't a point of interest. It all comes down to understanding your own trading plan and having the discipline to follow it.

Traders who diverge from the path of planning and organization are quick to fail. Rather than focusing on creating profits, they're looking for get rich quick investments and hoping to make a killing on one trade rather than produce long-term profits. Any trader serious about making money should instead look to the long term and the potential of everyday trading.
