Tip #1 Risk Management is Key to Your Forex Trading Plan

The truth is, all traders will experience drawdown periods throughout their journey. The goal of a great trading plan is not to avoid ever taking losses because they will inevitably happen. Instead, your goal as a trader should be to maximize your profits and minimize your loses. Without risk management in your trading plan you will not survive drawdowns as they are bound to happen.

Tip #2 Learn to Be Emotionally Disciplined While Trading Forex

As we mentioned before, losses are inevitable but that doesn't mean they get any easier to accept. Losing money can be extremely taxing on your emotions. On the other hand, it's easy to get euphoric and over leverage your trades when you're taking profits.

The most important thing with drawdowns (or winning streaks) is to know how to respond. When in a drawdown, it is natural to want to recover your losses quickly. However, if you react in this way you may end up taking trades that don't line up with your strategy out of desperation and consequently losing even more money. On the other hand, when you're experiencing a winning streak it is important to not to feel invincible and take riskier trades that could result in you losing everything you just won.

Tip #3 Start Small

Start small, master your emotions. Understand that as a beginner it is likely that you will not be profitable. 

With the Proper Strategy, Risk Management and Trading Psychology, you can be successful in the forex market. However, these concepts take time so don't rush it.
