trading is not easy in any fashion and if you wish get involved in Online stock trading or currency trading, realise that it will test your mental toughness to the limit. You will doubt every decision you make and you will be wrong most of the time.
The money you put at risk must be considered 'already gone'.
We have an emotional attachment to our money as it provides a certain amount of comfort and security. Nobody wants to be faced with the fact that they may have made the wrong decision. So, in order to trade objectively you must limit the emotional quotient in your decision making. A great way to do this is to get over losing the money first! Consider it gone when you fund your account.
Online stock trading is risky and you will lose money.
The trick to making money is to limit you losses. Great traders think about expected losses on a trade not expected gains. If you manage your losses correctly then you will put yourself in a position to reap the rewards when you are correct.
Most people who try online stock trading and currency trading go into to it blindly. They go in with high expectations of themselves and their account balance. Usually they make two or three bad decisions consecutively and then give up!
