Today we are going to discuss 1. How emotions affect our trading? 2. How to take control of our emotions during trade? Apart from our trading plan our emotions are important for trading. We have a trade set up, we enter the trade when price moves as per our trading set up. For example we enter a trade at the price 400 with 395 as stoploss. Price reaches 405, we are happy. we
multiply the profit with the no of shares we bought. We imagine how to spend that money. Then the price falls to 395.5. We are desperate.We feel sad. Then the price starts to move steadily and reach our target. Now we are happy once again. If this trade take hours to complete imagine how long we felt happy, sad, desperate? Some of us close the trade when the price reaches 395.5. Then after seeing price hitting target we think why we close our trade before it hit the stoploss.
Now comes the questionn how to control our emotions. We can do meditation.We can do our work with concentration. Or we can understand the simple logic behind trading. After entering the trade price action takes control and we have to just watch whether it hits target or stoploss. Why to worry for a thing which is not in our control and what use in it? For example if a heart surgeon start to imagine whether the patient will survive the surgery, whether surgery would be
successful, will I do the surgery perfectly during a critical surgery means, imagine the outcome. It will be a disaster.
Another thing is we relate trade with money.Instead of thinking 5 pts stoploss 10 pts target, we
think 1000 rs             loss, 3000 rs             profit. When we think interms of money we can not succeed. Avoid negative people around you. And be true to yourself. Just calculate how many hours we spend for trading. 6.15 hrs             is our trading time. In that we use whatsapp 30 mins, we chat with others 30 mins, we tell others I got this much profit/loss for 30 mins, we analyse whether others are successfully making money for 30 mins, we take rest 30 mins, we check mails 30 mins(All data are imaginary). After doing all thesethings we do trading. This is cheating ourselves. To be true to ourselves we should focus on trading rather than people around us.

I would like to add little more , if not object-able, Trading any scripts will put you behind lots of emotions , because of lack of price movement in the past , so one can select few scripts only to and do only trade in those scripts because of larger understanding in price movement and reading again and again the same charts and understanding the price of same scripts again and again will make you perfect on the price movement predication's, one hast to understand that few scripts initial trading will save your money rather going random on any scripts and losing money
Cheers

Never expect anything like that. Do it selflessly and be happy.
I don't see any such comity among people generally. Many treads are the testimony for that.

Any body can raise two words together to put a question mark, will become a question to the author. But who care the effort and pain,
required to prepare a convincing answer. My humble request to them is that,when they ask a question, make a complete sentence at least, :D
instead making a vague questions like "what next????"

@padiyaraa, I get complete questions. 1. What are the stocks you recommend today? 2. Teach me trading and give me one trading tip daily. 3. I have bought the stock "A" what is the target?
Nowadays I just click the ignore button :) People are becoming too lazy... They never work hard. They think everything will come freely to them easily.
