I am sure this subject has been discussed many times in the past and also in different threads, but I thought it would be interesting to discuss it again as traderâs input on the subject should always be helpful to all. Whether you are currently losing money or have losing periods, or whether you have put that period totally behind you, your thoughts and opinions and your experience would be helpful to many other traders so please do not hesitate to post them. There are probably many reasons why traders lose money and each traderâs experience may be different than the other. Some in general think the markets are random and chaotic and it is not possible to make consistent profits in trading. Others while believe it is possible to make consistent profits in trading, attribute the losses to many other factors, below are some reasons that come to mind in no specific order: Lack of discipline , overtrading, mental barriers and emotional trading ( fear & greed etc.), mental bias towards the direction, noise (news, financial media etc.), lack of experience, being undercapitalize, money management, not having a good strategy or not being able to follow a strategy or a system, counter trend trading etc. Why do you think most traders lose money? Is there a single most important reason that can be pointed out or are there many different factors that are to blame? Thanks and looking forwards to your comments and insight!
