8 Common Problems That 90 % of the Traders Face

Problem 4: Taking low probabilities trades.

Entering trades without all the setup requirements are met, or the trading strategy itself does not target only high probability trade. Resulting low win rate despite the high frequency of trades, and thus poor performance. 

Causes & Solutions:

A lot of people have a misconception toward the financial market. In our usual business environment,  the harder we work it should have direct contribution toward better earnings. However, this does not apply quite the same way in trading the financial market, the more you trade does not necessarily yield a better result. In fact, it’s usually otherwise.  


A person who stays away from trading when there is no high probability setup could have a better return than someone who took many (not so good) trades a day.


Stay away from the market, when the market is slow. Go and find something else to do rather than glue your eyes on the screen trying to force a trade. Do not compromise your trading plan, if there are 4 rules to be met before you can enter a trade then make sure all your trades fulfil all the rules and not lesser.


There are ways to improve your trading probabilities.


One of the easier ways is to add a filter. Adding the right filter should reduce the amount of trade’s frequency and improve your winning probability.

Last but not least

It is impossible to overcome all your mental obstacles just by reading books or watching videos alone. It requires hours of practices and dedication in order to get your mind reprogrammed. Without this, you will end up making the same mistake you promised yourself not to again and again.


However, with the right framework, this can be done effectively and save you from years of trials and errors, it also means money being saved from giving it to the market.
