You have to remember that the psychological of human is very reactive.
We humans are very emotional when it comes to forex trading. In
mathematics, we can say that we only risk a trade with 2%, but it can
accumulate can becomes 5% the next time you have another trade . Why?
This is because most newbies will make a mistake of overtrading or have
the mindset of trying to revenge the losses they incurred. Before they
knew it, they already lost much of their trading account. So what you
can do is to take a break from the forex market if you have few losing
trades in a row.
1. Kill Your Losing Streak – If you have noticed, losing streaks
usually start off with small losses. It may be a little mistake that
you have made in technical analysis or that particular day is just a
day with bad luck, which leads to your lost forex trade. Then from
there, you want to try again and hope to recoup the losses. But the
losses amplifies and everything repeats again. In order to reduce
losing streaks, you have to cut the losing streaks short and close the
charts to take a rest. This will prevent you from wanting to trade
more, leading to more mistakes made.
2. Take a Break From Trading and Clear Your Head – You might lose your
concentration if you stare at the forex charts for a very long time or
the losing streaks might be caused by information overload. Once you
sense that, go for a short break before coming back again to trade. You
should always look at the charts when your mind are refreshed.
3. Preserve Your Trading Capital – This is the most important forex
tips. If you have lost all your capital, then how are you going to
trade again? Always trade a small margin of your forex trading account
according to your money management rule. This will prevent you from
losing your hard earned money from making stupid mistakes.

and risk management is a important factor for me to be successful, I

trading strategy is. Build your gains slowly and you’ll take a step to
being successful in forex trading.
