I remember when I first began trading, I used to cheat myself out of profits all the time. How so? Due to the fact that I was extremely impatient. What I mean is that I would see a price setup that I like and I'd open my position in the direction I anticipated the trade to go. After that, I'd sit there monitoring the trade like a hawk and when the price retraced, I'd get nervous an close the position at a small profit....and then sitting back watching the market go in the direction I originally anticipated. Then I'd be highly upset with myself because I was right and I didn't have the patience to see my decision through. So here's how I overcame that. Actually, I never did overcome it entirely. Instead, what I now do is: When a price action setup that I prefer is occurring and I get in where I want, I set my stop and find something else to do! Whether its going to exercise, play sports, spend time with my child....anything to get me away from the screen monitoring my trade. If it hits my stop and takes me out at a loss while I'm away, so be it. I eventually realized...that you no matter how right I am, there's no money to be made by being scared. How many of you dealt with this sort of an issue? If so, how'd you overcome it?
