    Default What annoys you most in Forex

    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

    Depends on the trend and where I think its going. Its tough sitting while it goes against you but that just makes it more satisfying when it comes back again.

    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.

    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.

    Even I trade mostly on daily time frame, still I keep looking at lower time frames several times a day and eventually jump on any trade that mostly lead me to loss.

    What bothers me the most is the people outside who never did right click and open an order, telling me or advising me what to do.

    No. Just people who never traded, ordinary people who thinks this is a much easier endeavour. It this was too dam easy why they don't trade by themselves?

    The single thing I hate the most in forex is when my perfectly thought out trades turn out to be losers
