Been there many times my friend. That's why I started to love trailing my stops and/or taking profits early. Which brings me to my biggest challenge and that's how sentiment changes on a dime, and it changes often. FX is definitely one of the toughest to trade for me because of that. But I'm sure there's a ton of people out there who love FX for that.
What is it about forex that really grinds your gears?
I'll get the ball rolling...
When you've been in a trade for 2 days, patiently waiting for it to reach your TP. You watch and wait, eventually it gets within 5 pips of TP then, Bam!, 50 pip drop in 2 minutes.
Just happened to me now, if I had a dog I would probably have kicked it. Grrr
The absolute worst for me is when I have to go somewhere instead of staying and trading. I usually get nervous and force a trade for fear of missing it when I m gone. I still did not manage to get rid of that bad habit, but I already learnt to trade light in such cases.
