I use stop loss and other automatic tools to not let my emotions take control over trading. It’s easy to do that just consult with your broker how they can limit your trading activity per request. Then you will feel much better because being discipline is impossible without trading.

The basic reasons behind your undisciplined trading life can be your absence of right attitude, lack of proper trading knowledge and lack of experience. Once you are set with proper trading plan it can guide you to complete your trading activities timely and in less risky manners by following discipline and patience.
