Consistency in your life will bring consistency in your trading.
Too many immature traders and I have been through it too, focus solely on charts. They spend all their time and energy to improve their trading and start neglecting other parts of their life. If you won’t follow this consistency, then this leads to inconsistency in their whole life, which will eventually lead to inconsistency in their trading. Your trading life and the rest of your life are all intertwined. The day you realize this is the day your trading starts going to heights. You don’t have to stay where you started in life. Consistency beats intelligence. Consistency beats money.

I know Forex is difficult to newbies because it really takes time to understand the market nature. I suggest them not to start trading in live account first rather they should start trading in demo account before jumping on live account. They should invest a very little amount that doesn’t hurt them even if they lose it.

Yes lack of trading plan and discipline turns trading into gambling it’s a well known fact. Your decisions simply start lack a reason (why you entered or closed some trade) they are done under influence of emotions which are erratic in nature. Now you are greedy and seconds after you in the position you start to fear and doubt that decision was correct.

Overall, beginners must be cautious, especially given that the vast majority of forex traders lose money. Furthermore, leveraged forex trading — whether as a CFD or otherwise — is conducted from a margin account, which means that you may incur a negative balance and lose more than you invest.

Note: If you’re a beginner, start by learning about the risks of forex trading. Before trading with real money, go through all of the educational materials provided by online forex brokers. You can learn how to use the software with a free demo account. Many new traders begin with a small amount of money they can afford to lose to establish a consistent trading record.

Newbies should focus on strategy-based trading and building trading-friendly qualities. Strategy refers to a set of indicators used to forecast the market’s movement down the road and it is a form of technical analysis but technical analysis can be bolstered along with fundamental analysis.
