1. These traders become students of the Financial Markets
Let’s just get to the point! If we don’t think of something like a continuous form of education, we hardly learn anything new.
The same goes for trading.
Traders need to remain focused, do some research every day because many concepts carry essential knowledge, which means that if you use your information sources and your gained know-how in proper ways, you’ll do things more efficiently, decrease risks and exploit chances to the full in whichever type of business or investment plan you are going for.
Keep in mind that the markets’intricacies are quite a long, repetitious process and deep research is what makes it possible for traders to learn facts and understand what different financial reports mean.
By being observant, traders can gain instinct and learn all the nuances; this will help them to realize how those economic calendars or reports affect their trading.
World politics, events, economies - even the weather (no matter how strange it sounds)-all have a huge impact on the financial markets.
In case you are wondering how does weather has an impact on that, let me break it down more clearly. Weather conditions can be quite complicated at times and affect various economy sectors in diverse ways. Think about how bad it would be for agriculture if there was a prolonged dry spell. On the other hand, it would still have a positive impact on construction projects by helping workers and engineers to remain on schedule.
The market environment is quite dynamic. The more traders understand the past and current markets, the better prepared they will be to face the future of their trades.
2. They Have No Trading Emotions
A trader should have no opinion. The stronger your opinion, the harder it is to get out of a losing position. – Paul Rotter
How traders handle emotions is without a doubt among the most influencing factors, to determine whether or not they can be profitable over the long term. The world of currency pairs is a highly volatile area, and the values of the assets, fluctuate on an unpredictable basis.
That’s why another common habit of successful Forex traders is to always stay calm. They must accept occasional losses without losing their focus. To be successful in the financial market business, you should not lose your faith quickly. Failures and disappointments don't affect your trading abilities. That’s why forex-trading millionaires always keep their confidence unshakable.
Forex traders don’t allow their emotions to control them, because that would lead them to disastrous scenarios. Better avoid what you can, because having your emotions on a roller coaster every single day isn’t sustainable. Take a walk after each trade while maybe listening to some music. That will take your negative thoughts away. Another effective method for you to reduce your trading emotions is by not thinking or looking at your profit and loss while trading. You don’t want anxiety in the middle of this. The clearer the mind, the wider the route!
When you see things clear, you maximize your chances to succeed.
3. Money isn’t what it’s all about!
There is a blog article of James Clear where he talks about focus when one feels bored.
Although boredom is more a current state than an emotion, it’s quite worth pointing it out that boredom is commonly aggravated by a lack of control and freedom, which is why it’s common in many traders, who in addition to being dictated to, lack resources, experience, and discipline to confront it. Frustrated traders, often lack focus.
Get your priorities straight and when you are trading, don’t engage in any other activities.
James asked a question to a coach who had trained many Olympic athletes about what is it that they do differently.
The coach answered, “It comes down to who can handle the boredom of training every day and doing the same lifts over and over and over again.”
His answer made me realize that the most successful traders are involved in this business because it’s simply their passion.
Sometimes they make money and sometimes they don’t, depending on several indicators, - known as ‘’technicals’’ which are focused on historical data (price, volume, and open interest).
Active traders commonly use these technical indicators to analyze short-term price movements or even in the long term to identify entry and exit points.
They continue doing it since this is what they enjoy doing most. Euphoric happiness is what they experience. That’s how they find themselves wanting to look deeper to figure out how it’s done.
The most successful traders simply trade in perspective. A lost trade doesn’t surprise or shake them – they know this process is a part of trading, part of the bigger picture.
According to a blog post in Trading Strategy Guides, The best trading strategy is what fits your circumstances and personality best.
There are many different jobs you can do but it’s not necessarily that job that has to turn you into a millionaire. It’s you who has to follow the job properly and make yourself rich because, in this world, anything can happen. What I mean by this, is that no matter what your interests are, if you don’t put effort and energy, you won’t be getting your expected results.
Consider this as a way of telling yourself:
‘’I am not spending my time as I could. I should be rather trying different and useful strategies to make my ideas blossom.’’
Try implementing these habits and tricks, to see how they will improve your trading perspective. You won’t change things only by reading endlessly. You should put the information given to you to work. That’s how you figure it out, that’s how you progress.
