      Default Why traders must accept losses?

      Profit and loss are part of forex trading and of course all traders will realize this. Sometimes trading will not always run smoothly and get a loss. Why trader get a loss in trading, many suggest to accept losses and should not ignore losses?

      Why Traders Must Accept Losses

      Traders must learn to accept trading losses because the markets are both deterministic and random. Deterministic forex markets imply that price behaviour in the markets can be explained by examining the impact of economic variables and fundamentals on the markets. Random markets, on the other hand, are characterised by largely unexplainable price behaviour. Deterministic markets are easier to predict while random markets are very difficult to predict.

      Price behaviour in the forex markets also mimics a Stochastic Process and manifests as though prices have a probability distribution. The implication of this is that forex trading becomes an exercise in probability and cannot be divorced from the very character of chance events. Furthermore, and as a consequence of the probabilistic nature of the markets, modelling becomes a very vital part of market analysis - whether through Technical Analysis/Fundamental Analysis or through Quantitative Analysis.

      Because markets are sometimes deterministic and sometimes random, it is not possible to attain a 100 per cent success rate in trading or trying to predict price behaviour in the forex markets. For this reason, risk management becomes a major task facing the forex trader because trading losses are a given in trading. Risk management concerns itself with strategies to limit or curtail trading losses. In the light of the foregoing, it is imperative for every trader to come to terms with the prospect of incurring a loss once a trading position is opened.

      In conclusion, forex traders must accept losses that inevitably crop up in forex trading because there is no certainty in trading in any financial market.

      Losses is generally something that occurs in the trades of every Forex exchange trader, No one can trade for a full long time and have no registered losses in their trading, All traders must experience losses at some points in their trading. Since losses are inevitable, A Forex trader is supposed to train themselves so that they can start accepting those losses in their trading, If we refuse to accept losses it can lead us to over trading or revenge trading. At such a point a Forex trader now starts making quick and reckless trade decisions that would end them up as losers with many mistakes. We should also remember to risk only an amount that we can afford to lose since losses can occur to every trader at any unplanned time because Forex is a speculative business.

      Traders must accept losses in this Forex trading because we have to know that loss is a part of this business and as we are living creature of this Universe its a common thing that we can't be 100% accurate in any work ,there will be defitinely some problem in any work and losses may occur with profit .But yes we shouldn't sit idle thinking that losses will surely come ,in any business the success depends upon how much you are increasing the profit and decreasing the loss.

      So traders have to trade with proper skill and the understanding to know that how the market is moving and like that they can watch the weakness and rectify those to make stronger trading moves here and can improve their analysis and the number of positive trading .Its not a day process but we should be positive always.

      We need to remember this is a business. So getting loss is normal here and we as a trade to accept it. Loss can be big and can be normal. It is our own ways to manage the losses that we made. So my opinions, we need to accept losses for the following reasons :

      1) Losses can be a great teacher
      - When we incur losses, we will know what is our weaknesses and we will try to learn how to cover those weaknesses. Losses can be a great teacher since we can gain experience to be a better trader in a future.

      2) A trader must realize that other traders also incur losses
      - So for this second reason, he needs to accept losses since other traders also incur losses. If other traders can accept their losses why not him?.

      3) Losses can motivate us
      - When we incur losses, we will get motivated to do better. Motivation in this business is really important so we need to always be motivated. Other things we can do to get motivated is by reading others' success stories.

      Why traders must accept losses?
      Who says they do? I mean really just because many thing so does not mean that it isn't possible to trade with 100% win ratio.

      As i have shown several times to trade with 100% win is very simple it all falls on the entry size. With small enough entry size we can trade infinitely, almost at least. We can trade until such that the account is at a profit again and then it is only a matter of removing all the positions that are there currently and starting over. Especially in Forex where we usually have a limit of 200 positions per mt4, we can trade for a very very long time with small entry size. There are other account types and platforms though where this 200 position limit is not there. Then there is the issue of stops, we can simply add reverse positions and later lock them. Just have a look at my strategy. I've ran the system on some accounts for over 2 years never going over a total of 40 positions.

      All in all we must not accept losses. It's just like in that movie, some rules can be bent others can be broken. Take the red pill.

      Why trader should or must accept losses is that it is mandatory for a forex trader to incure loses,no matter how good he is,because according to forex operation ,one cannot escape loses,even in the first entry of a trade,a trader must record a minus in his account which is called a spread ,not to talk about other aspect of forex operation such as missing of good of direction of the market.

      The loss in Forex such as any problem we face in life must be recognized first so that you can find a solution to it because denying this problem or rejection will lead to the loss of a lot of time and inability to resolve
      As well as the loss in Forex if you do not accept it and recognize that it is part of the work in the Forex market you will be lost a lot of time and you are looking for ways to get rid of Forex completely and will not find these methods
      You will do poorly when a loss occurs because you refuse that loss
      But when you acknowledge or accept that the loss is part of the work in the Forex market will begin to seek to reduce that loss and this is the right way to reach the lowest rate of loss and thus increase profit

      Why traders must accept losses?
      As a trader we need to learn how to and when to accept loss in the Forex trading market, accepting loss should be based on our technical analysis, for example when we are already on a loosing trade and we sight that , the trade is about to go against our trade more, its essential that we accept the loss, and move on to other pairs.
      i guess this is why there are several trading pairs in the Forex market, and we have no reason to delay our loss more, because the more we delay our loss the more the loss we would encounter.
      though some trader prefer to add another trade instead until they sensed that there will change in trend but it require lot of experience

      There are many reasons why traders must accept loses, first of all before i mention why we need to accept our loses i want us to know that loses in this context does not necessarily mean overhall loses of the traders account but individual loses experienced during period of carrying out trade positions.

      Now why do we need to accept loses when they occur;
      It determine our future: Our ability or inability to accept loses will go a long way to determine whether we will be successful as a trader or fail. As long as we do not accept loses it will hinder us to move forward and make a head way in making progress in our trading career. So to progress we must accept any loses that occur.

      Trader do not have total control on the forex market: Another very important reason why we need to accept any loses is that as a retail trader we do not have total control on the direction of the market and so what we do is only to use some analysis to predict where the market may likely go and then follow where our analysis indicate to us. So anytime the market did not favour our good analysis then we need to accept our loses that time.
