      Ha ha ha you told very true. Those traders are more emotional they just let the trade running even if it is losing. They hold the trade in the hope of getting profit. But we should avoid it strictly.

      i think you should always maintain a balance between the money management and risk management we can't afford heavy profits everytime on the money we kept for risk management because it will lead the the short fall of a capital.

      I also had experienced such a situation, at that time, I always thought if I could restore the lost money while trading so I do not close the trade. But the reality is not, I Losses continue until I find a Margin Call. When I make a profit, I am always in a hurry to close the trade, I was afraid if I lose anymore so I just get a little profit.

      why i do so is because i understand that it is a way for me to win. it is as simple as that. there may be many ways to do it, this is one of them. i do not think that there needs to be more motivation then that. the problem with moving stops lies not within the system but with the trader himself.. this is where mental training and later experience of trading comes in. after that has been resolved the trading will be better.

      yes you are right, i think we are talking about the fear in forex business here, well you are right that happens to the most traders that they let the loss run and cut the profit, while in fact better to do the opposite, or follow and discipline with one plan, so discipline is the solution for this emotion

      Dear friend most of the time traders expect to make 100% profits all the time and they don't want to loose money,that's why when they are getting profit they want to get out of that trade and lock their profits.But when they loose they keep on expecting that market will come in positive side and thus they either get stuck in a floating loss position or face margin call.

      we should always work very hard in order to make profits and in my opinion if you can make money without loses or without continuous loses you should be happy with your profits even if they were not high

      profit and loss is the part of the trade. before making any decision we should always decide analytically. if a market is not in a position you can earn profit then never trade in the market. stop it and wait for the right time.

      My dear, not just you. it happens to lots of traders in the market. i think i am one of those traders that keep doing that.

      I keep seeing myself adjusting my stop loss and closing a trade that is profitable and would still have the tendency of moving further in my direction..

      actually, this isn't how to trade the market. it is the wrong approach to trading forex. if we keep on that way we can never make anything out of the market
      IF YOU WANT TO LAST LONG IN THE MARKET THEN APPLY THIS SIMPLE METHOD
