I sometimes become very initiative and try new things which leads me to loss. Thought i try not to over trade but then again due to less control on my mind i test something very innovative.

For me is OVERTRADING....I hate it..but I tend to trigger more trades than I should.... I would have kept much more profits If I only take the high quality setups :(

I think that's something a lot of traders run into, it's best to analyze analyze analyze then, when you know it's a great time to enter the market, enter a trade you know will make money on.

Well according to me a smart trader is one who can mold his strategies, rules and trades according to the economic situation and current market conditions.

Planning is very necessary, implementation is also crucial but adaptability is also vital for successful trades.

I always have problem entering too early...that single issue almost account for 50% of my losses... :)

Thats the reason I always got to let my winners run as much as they can.....they help to turn my account positive most of the time

For me initially it was definately overtrading.

I had targets to aim at but continued to push in and out of the market whereas I should have sat back and viewed my mistakes.

I was entering the market around 30 times a day and ending up virtually neutral in profit/loss.

It was only when someone pointed out the obvious that I had effectively lost 90 pips a session that I reviewed what I was doing !!

Now its rarely more than 3/4 a day ?
How do other members view what I have written ??
