Forex Trading There is no doubt that once a person is actually dealing with real money, that too personal money and is waiting to hit the buy or sell option to effect a forex trade, there is a lot of tension that the person experiences. It requires courage, determination and grit for the person to hit either the buy or sell button. The task itself is very simple, but executing it and arriving at the point of execution is quite a tasking and telling one. To win however, one has to be in it and there is no other substitute for that.
The various feelings that cross an individual would be anxiety, and fear or both. Unless one can overcome these basic instinctive feelings, there is not much chance of a person ever succeeding in the forex market. It does require some effort and maybe help from others to overcome this effect. Once the line has been overcome with time the feeling of anxiety and fear could well be replaced with confidence. However, one needs to be careful because after confidence comes over confidence.
While insecure and anxiety may lead to not making any profit as one is reluctant to actually commit to the trade, overconfidence has the side effect of being one that could lead a person into danger of loss. It can break a person financially. Giving no heed to others advise and even evident market trends, one could go on to commit such foolish trades that would take away all personal money of a person, leaving them broke and broken.
So while there is need to be confident, one must remain cautious that overconfidence is more damaging than under confidence. One must be ready to learn from present and past transactions and always remember that no one can be perfect or know all in forex trading.
