    Forex Trading Psychology
    There are many answers in the market to this question: Why do most forex traders fail?
    - Some blame it on over trading
    - Some blame it on emotions
    - Some blame it on revenge mentality
    - Some blame it on impulse
    - Some blame it on the market
    - Some blame it on bad luck
    - Some blame it on poor entry
    - Some blame it on not taking profits
    - etc etc etc
    As you can see, there will be tons and tons of reasons that explains why forex traders fail.
    This is all that relates to forex trading psychology.
    But i strongly believe that it all leads to one answer.
    Forex Trading Psychology – The Main reason Why Forex Traders Fail

    Yes, the answer is MONEY.
    The main reason why most traders fail is because of money.
    No doubt that we all trade forex for the money.
    But it will be the money that kills us in forex.
    Forex trading psychology – Let me explain.
    To us our money that we put in our forex capital is our hard earn money. Who isn’t?
    when we have that mentality that we CANNOT lose the money in our capital.
    And as all man are greedy. We want to multiply our capital FAST.
    That’s when we lose it all.
    To succeed in forex trading, we have to FORGET that there’s money involved.
    You have to learn to trade not because of the money. But because you like forex trading and you are passionate about it.
    You have to learn to trade right and not trade for the money.
    When you trade right and forget about the money, the money will come naturally.
    But when you are too focused on the money, all your emotions will trigger.
    You will get into impulse trades, probably because you made a lost on the last trade and you want your money back.
    Or because you look at the trade and you are so confident about it, you GAMBLED your whole account size on that trade. and to lose it all.
    Or because you want to feel good and look good, and you think that you are able to double your account in a week. So you take trades that are way beyond your money management risk %.
    Or you made a series of losses, and you think that if you increase your risk percentage on this particular trade, you will make back your losses.
    And the list goes on…
    FOREX TRADING PSYCHOLOGY – The Main reason Why Forex Traders Fail

    All the above reasons leads to the main answer. MONEY.
    If we are not trading for the money, but if we just want to focus on mastering our trading and trading it right.
    There will no longer be any emotions in place.
    I highly recommend traders to forget about the money in forex.
    Trade with your forex trading system and stick to it with discipline. Focus on trading right.
    It is even better if you can cover up the money part on your forex broker screen. Ignore how much has your account size grown or how much have you lose.
    When you are able to do that, you will then see the big picture and you will be more analytical on your forex trades.
    So the next time someone ask you on – what is the main reason forex traders fail.
    You know your answer: MONEY

    Hi Ezekiel,

    Cool article on FOREX. As a newbie to FOREX I was hoping you could answer a few questions:

    -How much gambling is involved in FOREX?

    -How much does FOREX fall victim to the Efficient Market Hypothesis?

    all the FOREX information you can provide is greatly appreciated.
