The trader who has been battling for a considerable length of time needs to discover what works best for them, as well as need to bring an end to any unfortunate propensities and set aside negative emotions they may have developed throughout the years. This is on the grounds that a starting trader hasn't had sufficient energy to make any unfortunate propensities. Be that as it may, regardless of in case you're a starting trader or you've been trading for a considerable length of time, there are a couple of price action trading procedures that you ought to dependably keep in your back pocket.

There are many mistakes a newbie trader can make and they usually stem from lack of knowledge and experience. In order to avoid them as much as possible it's a good idea to both trade on a demo account and to stick to what they do know as they gradually expand said knowledge.

Beginner traders are more dreaming than their actions. They want to make high amount of profit in less time. This practice is a big mistake can be dangerous . They are in hurry do not want to waste their time in learning and practice. They do not know how much valuable this practice will be for them in real trading.

Another purely practical mistake newbies do - and it was a mistake I too made as a newbie - was not checking a Forex calendar at the beginning of the week before they ever start trading. There always events that affect the market, some a lot more than others, and if you don't know they are coming you can miscalculate when opening positions.

Of course traders should need to know important events that can effect market even international big news also important. Their all calculations and plans should be related to market . As they will work and analyze in forex they will get better idea when and how to trade. If they remain away from personal and emotional decisions they can work good.

Another example of a poor habit many newbie traders have is the lack of patience and lack of discipline. I know it sounds trivial, but being impatient can have a really negative effect on one's trading, either because one is impatient to wait for a proper signal or because they're impatient to close their position at a good moment.

All traders have different bad habits. Some just won't use stops and they lose money because of it. Others like taking bonuses with horrible conditions. I used to leave some open trades before the wekeend but I got rid of it.

There are some common mistakes that the novice traders usually do out their bad habits. I have pointed out the most common of them:

1. New traders usually always in a hurry to enter in a trade that’s why most of the time they engage in bad trade or wrong trade.

2. There is a common tendency not to analyze the trend, whenever they saw some positive changes in the market they never go through the common trend.

3. In the training period, not taking demo trading seriously, though it is a good chance of learning about forex market and forex trading.

4. Take decisions out of emotion.

5. Trade in huge lot.

I will definitely say that all these bad habits are the result of ignorance and lack of proper knowledge.

That is a great list. I have made all those mistakes as a newbie and then some. Thankfully overtime I've learned to avoid at least some of them.

And what was your solution to your trading mistakes? Is it some exclusive know-how or the answers are known to public or written in books?
