Psychology Of Trading
The psychological aspect of trading is usually underestimated by those new to trading. The psychological problem for most traders is the fear of losing - ironically it is this fear that causes most traders to lose money in the long run. The fear of losing can manifest itself in a number of ways:
Unable to pull the trigger and enter a trade. A trader can start to lose faith in a system that has produced a number of consecutive losing trades and might start to look for further confirmation before taking the next trade. Inevitably the trade that is not taken will be the winner. The point of a mechanical trading system is that it forces the trader to take the trades that they wouldn't normally take just by looking at a chart.
Unwilling to accept a losing trade and cut a losing position short. Losing trades are an inevitable part of trading, many successful systems will produce more than 50% losing trades. The key is to never marry a position - if it hits your stop loss then exit it. Preserve your capital for the next trade.
Taking a profit too early to prevent a winning position become a losing one.
There are a number of ways to counteract the fear of losing:
Have a plan. Never enter a trade on a hunch, tip or gut feeling. Always know your exit before you enter a trade.
Discipline. Developing your own trading plan that you believe in will make it much easier to follow than trying to trade someone else's.
Money Management. If a position is too large for your account size then you are more likely to hang on to the losers or cut the winners short. Each trade is merely one step along a very long journey. Strict money management rules should ensure that you never stake more than you are comfortable with.
Ignore the money. Don't view your trading account as money, view it as points. The better your trading plan and your execution the more points you will accumulate as a reward. It is difficult to trade objectively if all you can think of is that your last losing trade could have paid for a two week holiday or bought you the latest camcorder!
