When you don’t have confidence in your trading system, it is the worst feeling in the world. It seems like you have no purpose and you question your worth as a trader.
Being a confident trader is not something that just happens overnight. It is the result of consistently doing many things correctly for a long enough period of time. In fact, you could even say that consistency is the main ingredient for confidence in a trader. Many traders experience fear, doubt, and indecision while interacting with the markets, there are a number of reasons why this happens, but it is primarily a result of one or two things; not knowing exactly when their trading edge is present and (or) not being disciplined.
- Define Your Goals
Every trader has the long-term goal of making a lot of money in the markets. Most traders want to trade ‘full-time’ and quit their jobs and be financially free. Long-term goals are something that people in every profession strive to achieve. However, again, if you look around you’ll find that the people who reach their long-term goals are in the minority. The main reason that most people don’t achieve their long-term goals is because they don’t make a plan of action for how to achieve them. Now, let’s talk about how to achieve your long-term Forex trading goals…
- Choose a Methodology
One simple method you can use is to think about what you are already good at. Think about what you went through to get there. Before you enter any market as a trader, you need to have some idea of how you will make decisions to execute your trades. You must know what information you will need in order to make the appropriate decision about whether to enter or exit a trade. Some people choose to look at the underlying fundamentals of the company or economy, and then use a chart to determine the best time to execute the trade. Others use technical analysis; as a result they will only use charts to time a trade. Whichever methodology you choose, remember to be consistent. And be sure your methodology is adaptive. Your system should keep up with the changing dynamics of a market.
The key to long term forex trading success is all about patience. Some traders may master these basic areas very quickly, others it may take years, (myself included!) This isn’t a race, where do you want to be with your trading in 90 days, a year, 5 years etc. Forex trading success is a lifelong journey of continuous learning and improvement. Focus on the trading process and master that. If you do that, you trading results will reflect that and so will your P/L.
