Another way this Fear surfaces is if a trader has been overly cautious on trades and has not been able to pull the trigger. And almost every trade he/she "almost" took moved exactly as the trader thought they would and would've made great profits. So, after letting multiple successful trades pass by, the trader finally musters up the confidence to pull the trigger on the very next idea that comes up. Ironically, this trade loses. Now the trader is upset. "Why does this always happen to me?" they ask. Anyone else?
