    Doing mistake is just normal. Almost all of us did a mistake at some point of our trading career. But in order for us to have a good trading day ever for some time, we have to learn from our mistake and try to never commit the same mistake again. Sufficient knowledge and information about Forex trading, the market and its trends so very crucial to minimize our mistake in Forex trading.

    We cant help not to commit a mistakes because we are just humans.But its not normal to commit the same mistakes over and over again just because we are humans,otherwise we never learned from our mistakes.Realizing our mistakes would help us not to suffer from the same mistakes again.As we all know it really costs us an amount to commit mistakes in forex trading.

    Demo practice!!!! Here's an analogy: the forex trading is a war zone, why on earth would you enter the battlefield untrained?! Would you send a soldier into war, without comprehensive training? So why would you think that learning to fight (trade) in the forex field would be a good idea to learn faster? If anything it will only make people quit faster (lol...and that is true). Yes 95% of traders don't succeed, but most quit...(mainly from getting 'rocked' in the live sessions) I say: learn to become an elite pro trader, then get your feet wet with the psychological factor...lol

    The best path to minimize your mistakes is to develop a strong system for investing. The first step would have to be gathering your information. Take the time to learn as much as possible about Forex and investing before you place your first dollar. Forums like this offer tons of useful information that will help. The second step would be to develop a system for placing investments, as well as tracking those investments, as well. By tracking what you do you will be able to start recognizing techniques and patterns that have worked and managed to generate positive results for you.

    Exactly and apart from the obvious mix of patience and skill, traders need to track their investments. Frankly, developing a strategy is not a one off session but tends to evolve as the trader trades often and tracking all the trades should help the trader hone his strategy..

    It would help traders if they could keep track of their trades, analyse each one and work out what went wrong..in the case of new traders, more often than not it is a lack of MM and adequate strategy or panicking..

    I agree with the demo points above. It is definitely cheaper to make mistakes on a demo account than a real one. I find limiting myself to one or two trades per day also focuses me on taking only the best ones.

    The best way to minimize you risk in forex is proper money management. Proper money management involves, knowing what volume to buy, what leverage to use and how many percent of your account you should use for each trade. Money management also involves setting TP and ST on each of your trade. Never ever compromise your standards due to emotions. Never involve yourself in revenge trading.

    Going to second the last post,, esp the point regarding TP and others. Trading without stop loss is not something that is advisable or recommended for newbies.

    You can minimize you mistakes by practicing demo account, but know that it is natural to make mistakes. When you realize your mistake, learn from it, because well trained traders also make mistakes but they are not weighed down by the losses involved rather they gain more experiences from their mistakes.
