Feeling guilty on missing a trade

overtrading is when your stock broker makes a whole bunch of extra trades to generate commissions.
Overtrading is not trading too much (in forex). Think about it! the more you trade the more chances you have to win!

Oh, yeah, all the time, well, that’s okay, or I’m gonna stop sleeping like that because of trading, Lol.

What wrong with risking more than 2 per cent be yourself ,just be very selective only hold one or two at the most at a time forget about two per cent rule

Right, I never regretted on missing trade we can avail so many chances in forex trading.Any move is not last for a trader . A business where market works 24 hours why we should be tense if any trade is missing . Be positive to work next time certainly you will get more good trading opportunities.

This is a real classic! If the deal you missed wasn’t profitable, you feel like the real master of the galaxy, but if you realize you missed a good opportunity, it always makes you feel disappointed and lost. You can just ignore it!

Try to find a more conservative strategy, that will give you less signals, but more high quality setups.

@Pip-Skywalker Trading is a minus sum game, the more you trade, the more you lose. Warren Buffett said, “Wall Street makes its money out of activities, you make your money out of inactivity.” It’s a good move to look for a more conservative strategy and trade less! :+1::+1:

Its a smart move to trade more and make more.

If you are an uninformed trader, then you actually need to trade more to become more experienced and INFORMED.> trading less isn’t the solution.

That is exactly what I am feeling too.

For retail traders spot forex is in fact a negative sum game. A negative sum game is any game or activity where the sum of total gains and losses is negative i.e below zero. The reason why spot Forex can be considered a negative sum game is that traders incur substantial costs when trading the currency markets. Brokerages charge a marked up spread or commissions to traders, these mark-ups and commissions are used by the brokerages to cover their costs and to earn a profit. This means that the sum of gains and losses is in fact negative making Forex a negative sum game.

I feel this way very frequently.

I dont read ooks, i learnt to miss trades or FOMO, at the beggining i was so anxious… I learn to control and now i can miss some or many ut i can few, with good pips!! Control your emotions

I can totally relate to this feeling and surely most of the fellow traders can too. But the best pthing is not to think about it a lot. What has been done is done and can not be changed, so there is no point of burdening oneself with the guilt. Instead, learn and move on.

The biggest trouble that I faced when I started trading was lack of knowledge on everything, be it, strategy, how the markets work, how to analyse the trading conditions. But surely, it is an evergoing process and it all comes ahead with experience. Try, not loosing your heart in the begining as it is the touhest.

I have to trade with patience. Never get good rewards from trading if you are busy trading. Trade should not be entered at the end of a movement.

I miss on lot of good trades very often and I don’t feel guilty at all.
There are 5 possibilities while trading:
a. big profit b. big loss c. small profit d. small loss. e. break even.
As long as you are avoiding the second, you are a good trader.
