    Common reason why traders lose money

    I would like to know the common reasons why forex traders lose money? Is it because they have a small capital or have a hard time making decisions?

    The main reasons they can lose money is because the market is liquid. There's sellers, and there's buyers.. both can't be the winners. The market operates in a way that gives the trader the outcome of a win, or a loss.

    Hope that helps

    There are some traders who are not well familiar with forex trading and its working, have great wish to make huge profit in short time, greed and fear also play role to lead loss in trading. These are some common reason.

    I am also agree with FX Destiny's reply.

    On the Ofrex market if you win than automatically it means that someone loose. That is how it works. The only way to start winning is to accumulate experience and knowledge about Forex market and be a hard worker and one day you will win and the rest loose. Combine your efforts and join tradersunion as united it is easier to pursue common goal.

    there is no way you can trade forex without making a loss,what really matters is that your winning trades should be more than your loss trades,but those traders that makes loss all the time are either lacking the knowledge of forex trading or they have a bad strategy

    Or fails to apply stop loss- another main reason

    Poor planning is the key to failure.Poor money management follows.Taking high leverage could be a course too since it posses higher risks.Never enter a trade because the price is suddenly rising or falling. Always plan your trades in advance. Know your desired entry point, Take Profit and Stop Loss rates before you trade and wait for the right opportunity to arise.

    The question is "WHY DO TRADERS LOOSE MONEY" The real WHY is:they Violated the rules of equity management and took on too much risk and overtraded their account.

    Few of reasons are:
    Using complicated systems
    Some investors believe that if a dealing plan is easy than it must be insufficient. They select complicated techniques which are so hard to function that they never recognize them. Select a program which is easy to function. It's the key to making the right choices.
    Can't management emotions
    Dealing is an psychologically strong encounter. Viewing the industry convert against you is always traumatic. The issue is that many investors can't management their feelings and allow them to impact their choices. They end up making foolish errors.
