The trader within you is the result of many things: your beliefs, your personality, your attitude or mindset, your character and your health. You cannot buy these things at the trading store Instead, you must identify and know yourself, and then make whatever adjustments are necessary.
1. Document everything – this includes plans on how you are going to enter and exit a trade. For instance, use the rules you have been taught in your Forex trading training and only enter and exit trades that fit within those rules. Before entering, go through your checklist and tick off the rules one by one. If one rule is not apparent, do not trade.
2. Find a comfort spot – once you are frequently placing good and winning trades you automatically get a feeling of comfort. Next time you find an entry point the same feeling will come back and you can sleep comfortably knowing you have followed your rules. Even if the trade is not successful, you have not made a mistake.
