I believe this is why it is so difficult for most people to
succeed in trading over the longer term. All it takes for failure is to
mess up in any "ONE" of the essential elements. Strategy, position
sizing or emotions.
Imagine any of the following situations;
Tom has a good trading strategy or system and
manages risk correctly with correct position sizing, but every time he
gets into a winning trade he quickly closes the position because he is
scared that it might reverse direction and turn into a loss. Every time
he sees a profit in his trading account he just cannot help closing the
Toms problem = psychology. (Failure to follow his system). Toms
emotions get the better of him. He knows he is not following his system
rules. Tom will not succeed in the long run because he is not capable of
letting his profits grow. He needs the size of his profits to be larger
than the size of his losses. With Toms current psychological problem he
will probably not be able to manage the other side of the equation
either - his protective stop loss orders.
Now consider Ken, He has practiced a lot of
trading and can follow his system closely. It is a good maths oriented
system. Ken has nerves of steel. Ken has made 100% profit in the last
two months. He now attempts the 'BIG' trade. He risks 30% of his account
on the next trade. Guess what happens? Yes...you guessed it!.....Its a
What is Kens problem? Ans = position sizing and psychology.
Ken risks too much on one sure trade because he is feeling invincible.
Even if Ken was successful with the next five trades in a row, he would
eventually bankrupt his account because he does not follow (or
understand) correct position sizing. It is possible for any system to
have an unexpected string of losses in a row.
Finally consider Janet, She has studied plenty
of trading books, completed several courses and various other forex
training. Her trading account is not going anywhere fast. She has some
wins and then some losses and then more wins and then some more losses.
She practices good position sizing and trades without emotion. She does
everything just as she has been taught.
What is Janet's problem? Ans = Strategy / System. Janet needs to
find a better trading system. Janet will make money trading but her
results could be significantly better.
Notice, with Tom, Ken and Janet it only took one problem to stop
them from achieving success as a trader. Out of all the hundreds of
thousands of traders, how many would you think have mastered all the
three elements of successful trading? System, position sizing and psychology?
You guessed it! About 5%
This shows the importance of getting all your forex training and education right.
