Traders wisdom part (7) ” Taking Losses in your Trading”

When you make a losing trade you must reassess the market, identify why the trade was a loser and look to evaluate what is going on in front of you before re-entering the market.

It is vital that you never panic when it comes to making a Loss and let the next opportunity come to you .

Don’t increase your activity (over-trade) or increase your size just because you are down and looking to chase the market and your loses .

A trader must be mentally in the right position to make his or her next trade .

You must demonstrate discipline throughout the day according to your concrete plan ” This is trading and what trading is about after all ” – Not gambling , your ability to take a loss and then move onto the next trade without it having a negative effect on the manner in which you trade .

Professional traders emphasise the importance of “trading as if you have a flat book” – considering the position as it is, rather than reflecting on previous losses or gains.

It is vital you stick to your plan and don’t react to your own P&L,  remaining calm comfortable and confident at all times  .

Finally … Self Quote  ” I,ve always found it profitable to study my mistakes “

The Most Important rule and Goal is not to repeat the mistake you made today.

Remember to Look back at your day and the errors you made and identify why you made them. Make a commitment to eradicate them from your strategy; this is essential to your development to become consistently profitable and a successful trader .

How Professional Trader,s Cheat

Did you know third-party like Business Wire sells hedge funds an early, albeit split-second, look at corporate earnings, before retail traders see it ?
it’s perfectly legal.

The University of Michigan, for example, sells the rights to its Survey of Consumers to Reuters for $1 million a year. Reuters then sells early access to it either five minutes before the public gets it or five minutes and two second before—for the HFT crowd that wants to frontrun the frontrunners.

The Rallying Cry Of Amateur Trader,s

The rallying cry of the losing trader “I’ll get out when I’m even”  Marty Schwartz  

Freshly Squeezed Pips view

Those who get out at Break even do so because they can then say to themselves i was not wrong i did not make a big mistake .  

This is totally the wrong way of thinking and approaching Trading .

Letting your Ego Rule versus Ruling your Ego is the First steps in the battle of your Psychology issues toward Trading  .

The Irony is People loss because they don’t want to lose , they just want to feel they weren’t wrong because in there minds  Right= ( Win ) // Wrong= ( Loss )  . 

The truth is Pros know they have to take losses in order to win its part of the process :  There is no Right= ( Win ) or Wrong  = ( Loss ) in Trading just wins and losses .
