    I have seen many times that new traders don’t stick with their strategy. Forex market is very volatilities and it seems that there are many trading opportunities, but actually there are not, as market moves swiftly revert back to initial stage. So, don’t get tempted, just sit and wait for your signal

    Very good points there Shevvy. I would like to add that risk/reward ratio is also key. Like you said, there isn't one strategy that works, but I prefer to set a TP double my SL and I don't risk more than 2.5%.

    I also cannot specify or give any reasons for that. Everyone is not saint or lucky that much and will loose at some point for sure. How do you really go about that ? Isn't that hard to find and understand ? All those rules of why we loose seems do not exists.

    Traders lose because of lack of discipline and patience, it is a well-known fact. They start to open big positions with high leverage and volatility swings basically push them out of the market quickly. You can even try to bet with opposite positions, without risk control you will also lose because of volatility. I've adjusted my leverage at Hotforex at 1:50 to avoid such situations.

    Some feel lucky while trading others are disappointed because as they place order they are unable to match market , face loss again ans again. That is why people say forex is highly risky business. Once you face loss, find out the reasons so that you must not repeat mistakes.

    I think that lose deals are not an issue as long as trades are ready to have introspective look at them. In this way, lose deals can be best teacher on the market as they will without mistake show what is wrong with our trading skills or strategy

    I agree with the views up here, that there are many reasons why traders lose. Actually, from my point of view, there are three main reasons that lead to loss in trading. The first on is greed, the second one is lack of trading discipline and the third one is inadequate trading information

    There are many reasons why traders lose. Top among them is lack of trading information and greed. New traders just get enticed to invest large amounts of money before digging deep to get as much information as possible to help manage risks and avoid scams. Greed makes traders to go blindly into deals that are too good to be true and end up overtrading the market

    There are hundreds of reasons in this regard. Many traders lose their money due to their wrong behavior, many traders lose their money due to the lack of experience, and many traders lose their money due to their lack of knowledge. You have to improve in these fields for getting success as a trader.
