Understanding the importance of trading psychology.You must have heard the proverb, ‘Quality is better than quantity’ at some point in your life. In this house, we also support this age-old saying. It doesn’t matter how much work; the only important thing is the quality of that work. You can half-heartedly make 10 dresses per day and sell them at $10. And, you can also make only a dress per day and sell it for more than $50. Which one is more profitable? Obviously, the latter one. If you are not good enough to profit from doing what you do, simply work harder. Nothing is impossible in this world!
It is the same in trading too. To be a good trader, you first need to make sure of the quality of yourwork, in order to execute your trades successfully.
It is very important for you to have mechanical skills to do better in this field. But without a proper mindset, there’s nothing much your skills can do.
So, what do you think are the qualities of a good trader? Let’s get to know them together!
Don’t be greedy
Many traders confuse ambition with greed when they first enter this profession. You need to learn to distinguish between these two before you are too late. Ambition is the dream of achieving something while greed is the trait of wanting to grasp something ruthlessly. Being a greedy trader can make you ruthless and take high risks without having second thoughts.
That’s why a trader should refrain from being greedy at any cost. Greed doesn’t only make you ruthless but can also be the reason behind your downfall.Check out professional articles at Saxo and learn to control your greed like the smart investors in Hong Kong.

Taking decisions as a trader can be pretty nerve-wracking at times. You may feel like the price if going downtrend will not go below the lower margin. But in truth the price could fall below the margin. So, if your stocks are at the lowest call, you will gain profit. But if you buy stocks now, your profit won’t be much. So, you fall in a pit of dilemma and fail to come up with an appropriate decision. in these cases, what you can do is, not to take any risk. If you think the current price is not a risk for you and you can gain profit from it, then buy the stocks.
A good trader is always aware that having less loss is better than making a higher profit. So, take your decisions in that manner.
Control you fear
Trading markets are always very volatile. That’s why the traders are always hyped about the market fluctuations. There may be times when you see other traders trading their stocks rapidly to make more profit. And, you may feel insecure about not doing so or you are simply scared of losing money. You may even refrain from taking any risk out of fear. But know that, in the exchange market, if you always play on the safe side, you cannot expect to get better deals. Many good deals may even go out of your hands. So, overcome your fears and insecurities before you invest in a trade.
Set a goal
If you are participating in a race, then you know that your goal is to reach the finishing line successfully. Being in the top 3 isn’t as important as finishing the race because if you stop in the middle, you will be a loser. So, while trading, if you don’t set a goal, you might take your profession half-heartedly which is never a good sign. That’s why having a goal can keep you on track.
Also, make sure that you learn from your mistakes and winning trades as they will help you to grow into a better trader with each passing day.
