@  traderpusa : (20 January 2017 - 02:51 AM) it is just the number of ticks in your candle, nothing to do with volume
@  traderpusa : (20 January 2017 - 02:51 AM) another volume thread. Why people don't get it there is no such thing as volume in mt4.
@  MIK : (20 January 2017 - 02:42 AM) :)

@  ahmetesk : (19 January 2017 - 04:20 PM) click to call button if you think price will go up.
@  siimduud : (19 January 2017 - 04:20 PM) Like i could somehow miss the huge green "deposit" button.

@  siimduud : (19 January 2017 - 04:19 PM) It's definitely annoying tho. Every single call is the same. "Can we help you open your account,etc etc"
@  kubn2 : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM) random calling customers is stupid and brokers shouldnt do it
@  traderpusa : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM) When a broker calls you it means you are with the wrong broker lol unless you asked for it

Read hanover's myth #15, #17 and #20, and alphaomega's excellent post http://www.forexfact...ad.php?t=273035 and his excellent thread here
http://www.forexfact...ad.php?t=566056

that deals deeper into the subject of psychology. Unfortunately many get it incorrect often quoting Mark Douglas superficially without proper understanding.

Well it is not black or white, that's for sure, and while I agree on some of the points hanover makes, it really depends on where each trader is on his way to become a successful trader. It is not about putting psychology vs edge/strat in a useless attempt to find out which is more important. To me it was about finding my edge/strat, and once I had that, then work on my discipline/psychology, which for sure has been, is, the most difficult part for me, and it seems to be so for many people. It doesn't make sense to keep searching for others and better strats, and demoing them over and over again, if the real problem is that your state of mind prevents you from being successful on the long term on a live account with any of those strats.

 

Psychology, state of mind, is not the most important factor, but it is probably the one that newbies are less aware about, or less willing to spent time improving, and maybe that is what turns it into the biggest reason for failure for many people.
