Hi guys so relatively new to the forex market and unfortunately I've suffered pretty high loses the past week, I know where I've went wrong and I'm kicking myself for it but I'm wondering how many of you all have made the same mistakes and wiped out your account or come close to ? I've been involved for just under a year following signals but then decided to do my own trades with very limited education, cocky on my part and I've now (hopefully) learned from my mistake.

I usually learn from my mistakes and now that I've experienced this I'll be sure not to do it again. I was literally eating my dinner and took my eye off the chart for 1 minute and in that minute I was wiped out the trade in a flash resulting in alot of capital being taken out.

I'm looking at Chris Caper for the mentor course at 2ndskiesforex which has good reviews on here, interested in it as its quite big on mindset, anyone on here had much success from it?

I'm determined to make a success out of this and look at losses the way I look at any other business expense, luckily the loses I can afford and I'm not too bothered about it but I know it was down to not following the basic rules, I thought I could capatalise on the XAUUSD situation and gain quick profits but I was wrong.

Thank you in advance for any support and feedback.

Risking too much and getting emotionally attached are the two biggest pittfalls for new traders.
To be emotional and risking high seems to be the same when traders are in greed they take high risk without realizing its bad effects on capital. Only one motivation is behind it that they want more money in a short time period rather than they are able to manage this risk or not . Mostly we see taking risk is easy but when they are in difficulty to manage they had no way to come out safely.

Too much risk-taking is the first mistake of newbies. They do not know how this risk will affect on their account. Taking risk is easy and managing is quite difficult. Once you take high risk you can loose that amount , winning ratio is low so all traders must try to take sucha risk that is suitable for them which they afford to loose.
