MINDSET/PSYCHOLOGY

  • Trade without Emotions (greed, fear, anticipation, impulse, bias, over-excitement)
  • I trade what my eyes see not what I feel.
  • I will be patient.

 

My job is not to be the trading system!

It is not to decide which signal looks promising.

 

That is the job of my system - which has a set of rules which tells me this is what I follow. Do not get caught up in price action and make rules as you go along.

 

MY JOB DESCRIPTION IS

To sit patiently and wait for my strategy to indicate that it is time to enter or it is time to exit. And then with great focus I execute the plan as outlined.

 

Taking trades not indicated by the system, second guessing it and not taking signals given, hesitating and getting in late, anticipating and getting in early are all common place and boil down to lack of faith in the plan and not having a burning focus on accurate execution.

 

GOAL: To have 100% undivided focus on mastering my ability to execute my Forex rules accurately.

 

The more you develop the ability to step back from price movement and watch the market dispassionately, waiting for a signal, the easier it will be to witness the fluctuations of your emotions without getting sucked into them allowing them to throw you off your game.

 

WEAKNESS

  1. I am greedy.
  2. I over-trade
  3. Make a list of all your weaknesses that are interfering with your trading. This is the first step to help you overcome these weaknesses. Use Forex psychology to help you overcome them.

NB: by writing down your weaknesses you will start recognizing them as you make progress, once you do this you will start to avoid this mistakes and your results will improve.

 

GOALS

  • To focus on exit just as much as I do on entry signals.
  • Always protect my account using stop loss, money management methods, follow with the trend direction and always following the rules of my strategy.
  • Never second guess or go against my strategy.
    To always keep up my discipline.
  • Follow all the rules of my FX strategy and never break them.
  • Transact fewer times and execute all my signals correctly.
    Trade what I see, what the system + currency charts are telling me.
  • Sit patiently and wait for signals from my strategy.
  • Achieve consistent profitable results before opening a live account.

 

FOLLOW THIS SYSTEM

This is the most important part of creating the system.

Always follow the rules

Stick with the rules

Be disciplined and patient enough
