Knowledge and experience with the market must help you come out of your emotion, which is the worst thing for traders.

As emotion is a human characteristic, it is unlikely to become emotionless, but I personally try to avoid overthinking when I trade.


I agree! I do the same.

Yes brother, I do this frequently. I skip trading when I see the market is volatile because it create a pressure for me.

It’s good to hear that you have become emotionless. But market situation sometimes makes traders reckless.

Becoming emotionless when trading is impossible, but there are ways to stay calm.

You’ll want to create a trading plan and try your best to stick to it. After each trade, take a step back and review it, especially if you followed your rules in your trading plan.

Don’t forget the bigger picture—one trade isn’t make or break, so don’t let it take over your emotions.

Finally, practice delayed gratification; by not rushing into trades, you can avoid the impulse to make bad decisions.

How do I become emotionless when trading?
I do believe I have come up with two foolproof strategies to solve this dilemma.
The first is to trade only demo accounts all the days of your life. No live accounts just demos so it wont matter either way if you win or lose and so no emotions will be involved.
The second is to start your live account with one million dollars and only trade with a lot size of 0.01…that should solve your problem of being emotionless. If you do lose in that scenario the loss will be so insignificant it wont matter to you and so you will remain emotionless.
There, problem solved.

There is no need to become emotionless in trading. Just try to keep your emotions in check.

Yeah, I too think the same. Emotions can be controlled and managed properly. So, there is no need to become emotionless.

Every year you’ll build tough skin . It’s like going to the gym over and over again . Take your risk down some & focus on your plan

Hope you’re doing fine,
this is a bit long but definitely helps a lot

Becoming emotionless when trading is a challenging but achievable goal. Trading can be a highly emotional activity, and emotions such as fear, greed, and anxiety can cloud judgment and lead to poor decision-making. However, it’s important to remain calm and level-headed while trading, and there are several strategies you can use to help you stay emotionally detached.

One strategy is to develop a solid trading plan that includes clear entry and exit points, as well as risk management rules. By following your trading plan, you can remove emotions from the equation and make trading decisions based on objective criteria. It’s important to stick to your plan, even in the face of market volatility or unexpected events.

Another strategy is to practice mindfulness and self-awareness. By being aware of your emotions and how they may be impacting your trading decisions, you can take steps to regulate them and remain objective. Meditation, deep breathing, and other relaxation techniques can be helpful in managing emotions.

Another technique is to use trading journals to track your emotions and trading decisions. By documenting your thoughts and feelings during each trade, you can identify patterns and make adjustments to your trading approach accordingly. This can help you become more self-aware and less reactive to emotional triggers.

It’s also important to manage your risk carefully and avoid overtrading or risking too much of your account balance on any single trade. This can help you preserve your capital and avoid making emotional trading decisions.

Finally, it’s essential to approach trading with a long-term perspective and to avoid getting caught up in short-term fluctuations or news events. By focusing on the big picture and your overall trading strategy, you can maintain a sense of detachment and avoid making impulsive decisions based on emotions.

In conclusion, becoming emotionless when trading is a gradual process that requires discipline, practice, and self-awareness. By developing a solid trading plan, managing your risk, practicing mindfulness, and taking a long-term perspective, you can reduce the impact of emotions on your trading decisions and become a more successful and objective trader.

Agreed! Having emotions is part of being human. We just need to gain control of our emotions. just bear in mind to separate how you feel regarding events and how you interpret them and don’t let emotions interfere in that interpretation. doing means your interpretations are realistic and based on reality and not just the way you feel.

When you’re trading, trade. and when you are not, just don’t overthink.

Initially it was difficult to control my emotion and with time I learnt how to control emotion. When I am emotional, I skip trading.
