    The idea of loosing real money in during a forex trade can lead to frustration and in some cases, anger aimed at oneself or the market. How about you?
    Do you find Forex stressful? Are there ways to avoid such stress?

    Yes, Forex trading can be quite stressful for me. Especially, when some long-term trade fails after working perfectly for quite some time.

    Luckily, at least a part of the stress can be removed from trading by adhering to prudent money management and position sizing techniques.

    In order to me; Forex is challenging! Because, it’s a volatile market and we don’t exactly know, what is going to happen in the next minute! But, It’s really irrigating to trade in a rangy market (usually it takes long time to break the ranges). By the way if you feel stress, then take a short break in every session. Hope it helps.

    at the start of forex business, you may feel stressful about this business. When you will fail to make money then it will be painful business to you. So you need to give time to learn forex, increase your experience, then you can gain from it.

    For me the most relaxing thing after long trading is a successful deal closure. I don't even feel tired afterwards, but still need to rest to calm down my nerves.

    How much time do you think one needs to become a trader and gain experience to become a successful one?

    I always entry trendy market! But, sometimes I feel poor! Because, in the trendy market session I am not sure about the direction of market! So, in this case Forex is stressful! By the way, overall I’m enjoying my trading profession.

    Any activity in which there is money involved is going to be stressful and even if we try to have a fresh mind, the fear of losing will control us.
