why trdrs losing if

#11
trading is easy,you are loosing because of insufficient knowledge,or may be lack of experience,or may be a poor strategy.Let me tell you a secret to trade,
- start slow (very slow), commit mistakes (do plenty), then increase the pace slightly and only when you reach a decent capital, then go aggressive. On the contrary retailers start slow and suddenly go aggressive until they realise that they lost all their capital. that might be the reason you are loosing

HOPE the above statement help you:)

Say for example you have a coin which has about 5% extra weight (Trading Edge) on one side.Now you know the coin flip win ratio is 55% . So every time you flip the coin there is a 55% chance of a win.Now over a long time this edge will manifest. IN THE SHORT TERM.
The sequence of wins does may not be same.Say next ten flips may be losses.But over a number of times it will eventually win.That's how Casino's win.

Increasing the capital may have to be done gradually-I was also thinking on these lines. Because when suddenly the profits increase, traders can become too excited and out of touch with reality.
So if you are having successful trades on a capital of 10000, increasing the capital overnight to 1,00,000 may be a mistake. Need to find the suitable range to increase for each individual.
It's like the effect that winning lotteries has on people. Studies have found that quite a few of the lottery winners were doing worse after a period of time.
