Risk tolerance is how much of a loss you’re willing to take. “With no risk, comes no reward.” Have you heard this saying before? Keep in mind, it goes both ways, because the greater the risk comes the greater the potential for losing money. Risk tolerance defines your ability to withstand losses when things don’t go exactly as planned.

More Motivational Trading Quotes

First, let me start this article by saying “an inspirational quote a day can keep the negativity away!” Reading inspirational quotes can help anyone having a down day and if you try to make reading inspirational quotes a daily habit, it's far easier to keep a positive frame of mind when something in life happens. And knowing how life is, a trial of some sort is bound to happen, often. It might be a case of road rage, (I suffer from road rage myself and completely understand!) someone shorted you the wrong amount of change, it could be a loss of your job, social media rage, a loss in the market, etc. Everyday annoyances and trials have a lessened negative pull if you instead focus on the positive inspirational message. If you have been trading the currency market, then you know it can be very fruitful, although traders that have been trading professionally for years have days in the market of total losses. So, it's natural to wonder how they can continue to keep not only making money but keep their spirits up when they have these losing days. As a trader myself, I keep quotes pinned to the wall that I can see when I’m trading.

Trading Forex has attracted many people with the idea that trading is exciting and exhilarating in many ways.

Just because getting into Forex is easy doesn't mean that your due diligence can be avoided. Learning about Forex and understanding Forex is so important for your chances at being successful. The majority comes from experience and live trading but even with as much practice as possible, you can't be perfect because the market is unpredictable.

What Are Some Realistic Trading Goals?

[fa icon="comment"] 1 Comment

Having goals is an important part of achieving success in anything and helps you stay focused on what you want to accomplish. When learning to do something completely new to you, it’s hard not to be overly optimistic and get carried away with all the possibilities! It's important especially as a beginner trader to remember that the goals you set for yourself should be realistic so you can focus on the goals themselves and not apply too much pressure, causing the goals to fail completely.

Top Reasons Most Traders Fail

[fa icon="calendar'] Jun 24, 2019 6:02:00 AM / by Lukas MacMacKen posted in Trading Psychology, Trading Plan, Trader Tips, shawn lucas

Failure is bound to happen in your trading; not failure in that trading will not be a viable outlet for income, but failure in that some trades will lose. This is not something to be deterred by. No trader is perfect, trades are always lost. George Soros, Shawn Lucas, and Warren Buffett have all had a trade lose at one point or another. As the phrase goes, “It’s not how many times you fall that matters, it’s how many times you stand up.” Not everyone decides to stand up on that final fall, though. Those people are the ones who do not reach success in the FOREX world. But what are some of the reasons why traders fail?
