what mistakes newbies make in the beginning is all part of the process i think. no one can learn without making a mistake according to me. but what a real bummer is, they don't understand how important risk management is, why you should set some money aside and then start trading and not trade on your savings.

- trading without a good plan
- adding more to unrealistic and unprofitable trades
- not taking proper steps for risk management
- ignoring the fundamentals
- not giving due importance to research and study

unless traders actually go throught his process anyway then they wont learn from their mistakes. Most traders do this

Certainly Ary, many new traders are expecting to become millionaires with only few short term trades. But, I dont blame them at all as there are is huge amount of marketing materials from various brokers trying to provide exactly this picture to all new traders
True; it’s their trap and new traders follow this road since, this path is looking so attractive!

Traders tend to make a lot of mistakes. They may start trading without having a plan, just on the basis of hit and trial. They blindly follow the systems and anticipate a lot of profits, that takes them nowhere but to incur losses for themselves. Lack of a diversified portfolio and improper setting of limits are another faults that traders have.
A trader must follow his system. How else? You get losses, then in retrospect you start writing down the system input in your errors. You think you should have guessed for some reason that the entrance is false. So you do not have an unambiguous trading system, if you allow thinking over during the trade. Or you are not ready to accept losses on your trading system.

Some of the common trading mistakes are as follows :
Not using stop losses
No understanding leverage
Trading without a plan
Over trading
Emotions based trading – fear, greed , unrealistic expectations etc.
Lack of knowledge and research
Over diversifying a portfolio
However, these can be overcome with practice, time and effort as one gains experience.

Over trading/bad RM is the worst thing you can do tbh. Sometimes it can be very hard, so you've gotta hack that to be successful.

Losses are inevitable even the best traders lose sometimes. However changing your strategy/approach after losing a few trades sets you back on back on the learning curve. Stick to one approach and don't change your trading strategy in a row.
What if its just fundamentally not working?

It’s a part of the game! And the point is; good traders know the way of recovering!
