Discover the Biggest Trading & Investing Online Mistake

Any online investor / trader seeks an excellent off or online future trading career opportunity. Despite this goal, did you know 95 percent of all traders go broke within the first two months? Why do investors lose vast amounts of wealth in one or more of the following markets ? option trading, forex trading or currency trading, stock trading, future or commodity trading etc? in such a short amount of time?

Most online investors / traders interact in devastating forms of thinking, which convinces the mind to the point where the trader believes that an educational enhancement ability that develops superb market research skills is not important. On the contrary, if trading is not treated as other business opportunities, the new sales and trading job will cripple the trader. You must develop a purposeful or industrious undertaking to learn how it works. Would you conduct business as a brain surgeon with out a college or university degree? I do not think so; similarly, the same course of action holds true for trading success.

The secret of my success required an earnest and conscientious effort on my part. This action accomplished something to the point of pure boldness; in other words, no matter how boring or non-important you think learning how to trade may be, it must be done to insure a success story.

Every successful company needs a business plan. Yet, when most people take a gamble on the securities industry, they fail to put a trading plan into place. In other words, they end up going on an emotional roller coaster, governed by how the market performs.

Without a trading plan, the majority of traders approach the financial market in an inconsistent manner - i.e. they follow their whims. The typical pattern may include the following:

Day 1 - experiment with option trading
Day 2 - randomly select any online trading brokerage firm.
Day 3 ? try out future trading
Day 4 ? read about oriental trading then decides to go into that direction
Day 5 ? change mind completely and try currency trading or forex trading
Day 6 ? try day trading then in midstream chooses to hold trade for the long term
Day 7 ? venture off into stock trading
Day 8 ? dabble in commodity trading
Day 9 ? give up because you think it is a hopeless cause.

This example is meant to look confusing. Similarly in the illustration above, this trader may use one set of indicators one day, and the next day they will throw these indicators out the window and take on a completely set of new rules.

Unfortunately, with no consistent approach, your trading decisions, governed by emotions, are doomed to failure ??? here is why.

When faced with losing money in the market, what do traders do? Usually, they end up rationalizing to hold on to a losing stock. The driving force behind this is that they do not want to be wrong. They let their ego get in the way of making profits.

LOOK! Let us set the record straight. THIS IS A FIRM FACT - not every trade will be a winner. You will not make the maximum profit out of every trade. There is no Holy Grail trading system! You just need a trading plan, which matches your personality.

When I say trading plan, I am not talking about fundamental analysis or technical analysis specifically, I am talking about setting up a simply a set of guidelines to follow regardless of what stock selection method you use.

In fact, through a study of successful traders, I found there are many different trading methods for entering a security. I have seen people use technical analysis; fundamental analysis even astrology to determine when to enter a trade. Despite these varied entry methods, one component remains the same among successful traders? they all have a trading plan that suits them.

In fact, successful traders have a written plan and my friend this is the essential component to their success. I guarantee that investors who stick like glue to a trading plan are the ones who make NOT LOSE MILLIONS of dollars in their activities of online investing.
